caliprian is an indo-european language i started working on in april 2022
it’s spoken in calipria, a fictitious collection of islands in the mediterranean.
here’s a poem i wrote in caliprian:
athī́am mini fistóm in vestrei tḗs
akṓnois anú khúptim áistōr imói
firóm kis karí váurom tḗm hoi kériet
and the translation:
if only i could put the knowledge into your hand
that you could drink it, the desire felt by me
a poison that travels such through your blood
that your skin is aflame.
