The Origin of the Name "Arian"
The Constructed Language of Arian
The Origin of the Name
Aria is transliteration of Korean 아리아, which means ‘elf.’ From the transliteration, the creator added ‘n’ which gives it a form of a language or culture. Elf has magical powers. Arian also has “magical” powers that can convert almost intraslatable Korean sentences into English sentences much fluently and correct in grammar.
What is Arian?
Arian is a conlang constructed by Justin Jin Woo Won. It was created to facilitate translation between English and Korean by providing a language that has similar grammar to that of Korean and proximate lexicon to that of English. Most prepositions in English are manipulated to form Korean-influenced postpositions to form a pivotal part of the language. Due to its grammatical structure and lexicon, Arian is a bridge between the languages Korean and English.
The Reason Why It Was Created
I, the creator of the Arian language, was inspired to create the language by the unfortunate fact that a prominent Korean poet failed to receive the Nobel Literature Prize because of Korean to English’s intranslatability. That’s how different Korean and English and Japanese and English are. To build a bridge between the languages, I was motivated to create a language that has features that resembles both languages, thus easing the translation works between the two languages.
