What are some of the words in your language?

At last!!! Someone has asked!!

Well, there is first the consideration of the pronunciation:

So first of all the alpha bet consists of Forty-two letters, there are the usual twenty-six letters and sixteen extra. These are; 'aa' 'ae' 'ch'(the end of the word loch) 'dd' 'dr' 'ee' 'ed' 'ing'/'ng '(this one can be used for either combination) 'ij'(like in Dutch 'll' 'oo'(also represented by o-with-umlaut in German, or lower-case omega in Greek) 'ou' 'ss'(the German double-s letter which I am not sure on how to spell) 'sh' 'tt' 'th'(like the letter thorn).

The alphabet and the language are both called wyrfoott. The alphabet has only one case which is why there was no capital letter at the beginning and if written in the alphabet then it would have only six letters - w, y, r, f, 'oo', 'tt'. Also the pronunciation is different to English, it is pronounced; viyrfoat, which should ryme with 'wire-boat'(I should be using the International Phonetic Alphabet at this point but my knowledge is limited in this area). The word wyrfoott is an anagram of Forty-two which is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life the Universe and Everything in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The number of letters in the alphabet is no coincidence.

Then once you read that you are more or less ready for some words...

... Such as: ckooausm-tigrijd vonormos (Basically look up Dutch pronunciation and you are fine for this). It means: Space-Time Continuum. (stuff underlined are single glyphs in my alphabet). The Earth is aaærdr (The 'dr' is pronounced as if it was at the start of a word - and this word therefore comprises in this case as four letters). I think therefore I am would be: ijk sejkje drruncotts ijk xirtchen.

Thank You! So it would be ckoo (sounding like the first 'o' in co-operative) au (sounding like cow) sm (try to put as little vowel sound as possible - but if you must then it could be the vowel sound of 'soon'
