Jump to: navigation, search

The first Laqi Phrasebook was compiled by Maksym Hadjimehmetov in 2007, and is still being added to. It is planned to have a full edition complete by late 2008, including most basic phrases and words needed for the visitor to the County of Modan-lach, where Laqi is spoken by the overwhelming majority of the populace there. For guides on how to pronounce these phrases, see the Laqi Alpabet
