English to Atlantean Dictionary

<Not a single one of these words is 'made-up', although in a a few cases the discipherment may be controversial.>

Pharoah asked for a dictionary from English to Atlantean, so here’s a much-reduced form that I made a month or so ago for Zompist BBoard. Please don’t think this is the all there is to know about Atlantean or that the lessons are over now.

Here's a simplified version of one of the more recent drafts of my Atlantean Dictionary. It omits a lot of notes on translation that I hope to put online sometime in the next year. This is an English Aphabetical Order English to Atlantean Consise Dictionary by me. These were my best translations based on my own examination of the various sources. Of course, I am indebted in this work to the grammatical endings once found on Wikipedia and I've double-checked some of the definitions I came found with those of Delalyra and Morris. All sources will be sited within reason and professionalism in the final draft. Most definitions I arrived at on my own, as I was at that time quite unaware of any dictionaries aside from Atlantima's.

Most sources are sited. If bold text showed in this message board, you'd see which words and letters are actually canonical and which ones are derived based on transliterations systems Atlantean fans have been working on. None of these words are made-up by fans. I am refering to whether or not the word originally occurs in the canon in Writers, Readers, or Epigraphist Script. As a rule, most words are from the Movie Script (Official Corpus) and all of those are in Readers Script. All words from the movie itself are in Epi Script, being a computer-friendly system of representing Atlantean Script.

Of course, in all my Atlantean discipherment work, I am intricately indebted to all past Atlantean language scholars, noted in full in the bibliography of my book. Notable among these and full worthy of naming here are: Paul Sherrill, Atlantima, Delalyra, Shahnahnahkehm, Rebmakash, Dennis Falk, Leenay, and Jefferey Henning. I apologize for any I've forgotten.

It is incomplete: as this draft is, it lacks entries for grammatical endings, other suffixes, and 100 or so words that occur in sources outside the movie script.
