KoK Font: Kalamaran Modern

The Kalamaran language can be separated into Ancient and Modern Kalamaran. Ancient Kalamaran is the language of the past: Rulakan, Fulakar and Lelana all spoke this language. Now, only a handful of sages who study the ancient tomes and historical works written in Ancient Kalamaran speak or read it.

Vowel and consonant sounds are never found in pairs (except for the TH combination); consonants not separated by a vowel (and vice versa) are always separated by an apostrophe, which indicates a delay when spoken, e.g., P'Bapar (puh-bah-par), Ka'Asa (kah-ahh-suh).

In Kalamaran, the emphasis is on action. For this reason, verbs precede nouns, and adjectives and adverbs always follow the words they are describing. Verbs are short, typically one or two syllables, and nouns and adjectives are longer. Articles are usually only one or two letters long. Possessiveness is indicated by the prefix ka-; gender is defined by the suffix -i, -e or -u for male, female and neutral, respectively. Plurality is indicated by the suffix -l or -al. Mixed groups of males and females are always given feminine gender. The naming convention for towns and cities is as follows: villages and towns end with the suffixes -idu and -ido; cities end with the suffix -eta, and capital cities are preceded by the word Bet.

Product Update (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 supported).

We hope these changes satisfy the needs of our users.
