The 'eh', most used vowel, is quite distinctive.
The 'r' is the 'eh' with a straight line up.
The 's' shape is also used in some other letters.
A 's' with a little dash that is often used to alter letters.
The round top is the main difference to the 'v'.
It has a sharp top (<> t).
The 'k' has a straight short line at its left side.
The first of a series with a curve at the left (unlike 'k'). The 'l' has a straight line.
Like the 'l', but with a curve to the right at the top.
A 'l' with a curve to the left.
The 'o' (round bottom) is the basis for some other letters, 'u', 'oy' and 'oo'.
'o' with a curve to the right, like the one at the 'n'.
The 'g' has a dash again. The sharp corner at the left is important.
The 'ah' introduces a new basic shape.
Now we can start with some words. I have decided to type all D'ni words in light gray.
I won't normally use the D'ni script yet, but in the following list only those letters you already know are used so that you can write them in D'ni if you want to practise.
kehn = to be
glo = to start
lon = to discover
sehk = to have
sehl = to write
tahg = to give
kor = book
lehnah = journey
nahvah = master
tehl = guild
sehv = Age
gahro = great
If you feel sure now with your letters and words you are ready to enter the 2nd lesson.
Note. Future lessons will have a summary at their end, but this isn't necessary yet.
