Wonderful creation! But I would write the Hebrew as פָּרַה and the Arabic as ﭘﺮة to denote that final -a. Now I'm expecting to take a look at the vocabulary and grammar of Parra. Is it based on a language that exists *here*? Kyrmse 05:08, 20 March 2012 (PDT)

Thank you! Thanks for the Hebrew & the Arabic, I should have asked somebody who knew something before posting them in the first place. As for Parra's nascent vocabulary and grammar, it's kept at the new site that this page links to, Parra's ancestor is Mediterranean Lingua Franca, a trade language between the Middle Ages and the 19th century. One important source I'm using is this page, which shows many of the few surviving written examples. *There*, Lingua Franca might actually still see some use at sea, based on some old Conculture posts. In Crimea, Lingua Franca was heavily influenced by Turkish, Tatar, and Russian to become Parra. Benkarnell 13:16, 20 March 2012 (PDT)
