Authors

Authors to Áya Dan post whenever they have time or something to talk about! We’re not very organized. :) (Psst, interested in being an author?)


“Áya Dan”

Áya = Beautiful, Dan = Language

In Láadan, one might express, “Bíi áya dan wa.” – This would roughly translate to, “I declare that language is beautiful, I know it because I have perceived it.”

Shortened down to exclude the speech-act morpheme and evidence morphemes, we just get “áya dan” :)
