Now I’ve got a new series coming out this fall, Tangled Moon, and I’ve learned some Lithuanian. It’s believed that it is one of the oldest languages in the world.
My male werewolf, Lothar, and his sister, Vesper, were raised in Lithuania, and wanting to know more about that, I did some research. Today, we’ll just stick with the language though.
*Hang in there. At the end we learn how to say I love you.*
Some common words I’ve added to my novel to make Lothar and Vesper sound a bit more authentic:
Atsipraša Sorry/I’m sorry
Ačiū Thank you
Now for some really fun ones:
Brangioji Darling, female
Brangusis Darling, male
Saldžių sapnų Sweet dreams
Nuostabiai atrodai You look gorgeous
And my favorite one, of course:
Aš tave myliu I love you.
So tell your sweetie, aš tave myliu today… and then sit back and enjoy the befuddled look on their face!
Here’s a great video on the pronunciation:
