The Garden Door Language is an invented language used in Garden Door, which is a side game surprisingly connected with the Daymare Town series.

The language was invented to give some challenge to the game and confuse players.

GeneralEdit

According to the author the language is part of the Scandinavian language family, which includes languages such as Swedish, Norwegian and Faroese.[1] Due to the nature of the ending of the game, it is suspected by many that the language is connected with Daymarian people.

Although the author has translated a few words for us, even he himself doesn't know what an ognumbarok means.[2]

The language is know to use onomatopoetic words that is words which sound like the thing they describe (e.g. bomb from boom). Known example of this is "drizzt", which seems to refer to electric current.[3]

AlphabetEdit

The language is written with the Latin alphabet. So far only 24 different characters have been seen. They are, as follows: A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,R,S,T,U,V,W,Y and Z. The characters that are still un-used are Q and X.

Pronunciation of the language is not known.

GrammarEdit

NumeralsEdit

The numbers appear to have many different forms in this language. For instance, one appears to have three forms; erstir, ersterosa and ersteroza.

Only three numerals are known, all of which have been specifically translated by the author.[1] Note that the game and author's translation slightly differ, either intentionally or because of a misspelling.

The numerals are also different when counting farkavikk halvists against counting ognumbaroks.
