And lo, a new character appears!
Zentani Language Lesson of the Day
Gandama Mangmagi – Beautiful Evening/Good Evening!
Ganda – Beautiful, Very Good. Also used to describe people!
ma – a ‘linking’ suffix. It attaches the adjective to the noun it is describing.
Mang – Possessive prefix (archaic)
Magi – a shortening of “Pulmagi”, the Zentani Moon Deity.
So the phrase itself translated directly is “beautiful Pulmagi’s realm.” The disused phrase included the word Laligara, the archaic northern word for “land” — Gandama Mangmagima Laligara. It’s been shortened over the centuries just for brevity.
Sorry for the late update! I really made it hard on myself w/ having all these expository shots in the beginning. But it starts to calm down after this page haha
