The Brandobian language favors the use of consonant combinations.
This provides for a nasal sounding tone. The ancient form had very few
vowels and was difficult to speak for non-natives. The early influence
of the elves modified the Brandobian language to include more vowels.
This made the language easier for elves to master. Most Brandobians
believe that their ancestors simplified the language for the less
articulate elves. The result of the amalgamation was a language that
flowed beautifully in both conversation and writing.
Plurality is indicated by the suffix -on. Gender is assumed to be
masculine, unless the suffix -el is used, in which case it is feminine.
The suffix -a is used to denote possessiveness. Adjectives usually
begin with the letter e.
The naming convention for towns and cities is as follows: villages and
towns are usually two syllables and end with the suffixes -den and -ven
respectively; cities are typically three syllables and end with the
suffix -olen, meaning city.
(September 25, 2011)
When originally published, there were separate versions for Macintosh
and Windows. The "Macintosh" version was Type 1 Postscript and
reflected our background and experience on the legacy version of
software for that platform (i.e. MacOS 9 or "classic"). Since that
time, "OS X" has almost completed replaced that user base.
Significant typography changes have also occured in the intervening
years. Adobe has depreciated Type 1 Postscript and OpenType has become
the preferred font format. To address these changes, an
OpenType version of the font has been created and the multi-platform
version has been consolidated.
This file now contains OpenType, TrueType and Type 1 Postscript
versions encapsulated within a single .zip file (the Mac version
previously used a StuffIt file that today is no longer universally
We hope these changes satisfy the needs of our users.
