A/N: While not necessarily a work of fantasy itself, this guide is a smaller part of an in-Universe text within a much larger piece I am currently writing called The Annals of Ëïgãôš, which does fall under the category and genre of fantasy. As such, I have labeled this piece as fantasy, as there was no other option that better fit this individual piece of the World of Egress.

Translation Rules:

A comma and no spaces between two words in Dræch'Thyãône indicates that, when translated, there will be a space between the two translated words.

An apostrophe between two words in Dræch'Thyãône indicates that, when translated, the two words will be flipped and the words "of the" will be placed between them.

When a word, such as "Spin", is changed in to a noun form, "Spinner", its Dræch'Thyãône translation has the suffix "ûn" added to the end. Ex: Šïnø becomes Šïnøûn

An exception to the above rule is when a two-word phrase, such as Eternal Observer, is a single word in Dræch'Thyãône, who composite words are flipped respective to their Common Tongue counterparts. Ex: Lévæthãônïoi

When a word, such as "Wrath", is changed in an adjective form, "Wrathful", its Dræch'Thyãône translation has the suffix "ôl" added to the end. Ex: Wÿrth becomes Wÿrthôl

When a word, such as "Shroud", is changed into a verb form, "Shrouded", its Dræch'Thyãône translation has the suffix "ûm" added to the end. Ex: Šôrøl becomes Šôrølûm

When a word, such as "Save", is changed into a noun form, "Savior", its Dræch'Thyãône translation has the suffix "ãn" added to the end. Ex: Šãrãśth becomes Šãrãśthãn

When a Dræch'Thyãône word with the "ûn", "ôl", ûm", or "ãn" suffix is changed into a plural form, the letter "ï", modernized to "ii", is added to the end of the suffix. Ex: Kûršônûn becomes Kûršônûnï
