I just got interested to wonder how would written and spoken Hylian be like, and it's really sweet to see someone working to this kind of thing! Amazing work so far!

I absolutly LOVE your work! And how much time and effort being put into is just amazing. Is there going to be a mini dictionary? I'd love to learn this (actually trying to teach myself now)

Haha oh there will be a dictionary all right. Not sure how "mini" it will be once I can actually work on getting the vocabulary up though. Right now the "mini" dictionary (what I've got up anyway) can be found within the lesson pages. :3

Keep this in mind, Sarinilli.

I only know two Hylian words:

Master and link/connection.

"Master" in Ancient Hylian is "Madi" (Mah-dee), and "connection" is "Madas" (Mah-dahss).

You might have already known that, but my proof is that in Skyward Sword, Fi always says "Madi Madas" in exact correlation to "Master Link," and just "Madas" in correlation to "Link." ALWAYS.

Well, I DID actually incorporate "madi" as a positive word for Master in my Hylian Language Project; but I have been working on it for far far longer than Skyward Sword has been out, and the word I still keep in my files for "link" or "connection" is "sithal". 

A little story though; is that as Nintendo has said; Link gets his name in the games from the meaning behind it; he is literally the link between the player and the game. They even said at some point (and I'm sure if I looked it up I could find it somewhere) that "his name may not always be Link"... so I see Madas as the personal name for the hero of the Sky Era. Though all names DO have meanings, in any language... I see Madas as a name meaning something closer to having a deep spiritual connection or balance. If that makes sense. :3

Oh, and the negative word for master is "keiral".
Madi meaning Master or Mistress in a respectful positive way; Keiral meaning master in the sort of way that shows the person has dominance over or "owns" the one saying it; so Ghirahim wouldn't ever call Demise "Madi", he would call him "Keiral". In the sense of "ownership", Madi would be disrespectful as the meaning is entirely different in Hylian. 
For example calling a female Miss is polite to a younger woman but may be seen as rude to an older more refined woman where Ma'am or "Mrs" is more appropriate.


So now you know three words in Hylian and the meaning behind a name. ;3

Is it complete? If so, could you bundle up in a single ZIP/RAR file?
