(I am currently reviewing and correcting the transliterations, expect changes)

Here is my raw upgraded data. It build upon the Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics by Renil, the enhanced contrast map by Zorin_75 and waveney transcriptions, all from the OTT, besides everything I had previously taken from the OTT and the Wiki. I have extended, corrected and modified the transliteration; in particular, I’ve chosen ᑕ for what was [G].

There certainly are errors, please help me proofread if you can.

You should also note that I removed the many repeated occurences of “water”, “cream”, “good morning” and “hello”, as they was skewing the data (the very frequent ᓄ in final word position was due only to the “water” word). I have also revised the translations and removed those that were pure speculation.

Commented changelog:

  • In frame 2663, the question is probably “Where are you from?”, because ᔪᘊᖚᐧ seems to mean “where” (the initial ᔪ might be mandatory when using it in questions, but we have at least one exception). This would make ᘛᔭ a verb, “(you pl.) are”, and in fact ᘛ seems to frequent in sentences/words where we expect the verb “to be”.
  • The meaning of the question in frame 2664 is far from clear, but the word ᖽᘛᕋ is probably a noun that refers to Megan’s leg or to the scratches. If our assumption about ᔪᘊᖚᐧ is right, the first word in this frame might be derived from *ᘝᓄᐧ (*”what”).
  • The sentence in frame 2671 is one of the most obscure, but if our assumptions are right it is an affirmative sentence starting with a “where” ᘊᖚᐧ. The ᘛ in the middle of the sentence could be from the verb “to be”, and the final word ᘊᖚ,ᕋ might be morphologically related to the first. If the language does use an infix morphology for verbs, as per one of my hypothesis, the complex word ᘊᘖᑫᘖᒣᐣᖚ would likely be a verb or a nominal form of a verb [A past participle, perhaps? The following ᘛ could then be, indeed, a verb, an auxiliary verb for the past].
  • Regarding frame 2697, my previous guesses are probably wrong. I’ve noticed that the last word is ᓭᐧᖚ, which not only is similar to ᘊᓭᐧᖚ, the name of the sea near Cuegan home (and presumably the name of their people in Beanish), but seems to confirm the hypothesis of the ᘊ- prefix being a morphological mark, maybe a plural mark. This could make ᓭᐧᖚ something like “wildling” and ᘊᓭᐧᖚ its plural.
  • In frame 2728, once more we have a word starting with ᔪ-, ᔪᖉᔭᑫ, which might indicate a non-interrogative version ᖉᔭᑫ.
  • Frame 2806, read along with frame 2842, strongly suggests that ᘝᘈᘖ is a vocative, either a name, a title or a form of address.
  • In frame 2865, ᙐᖚᐧ strangely lacks a ᔪ- prefix, even though it is certainly a question.
