Hey everyone, I am brand new to the forum. Actually brand new to writing in general. I was actually inspired to write a novel from a dream I had and am too excited to let the plot go unwritten. I am writing a fantasy novel based on medieval times but without the magic and mystical beings. The language for my story is English but I want to incorporate an ancient language to give names to events and places. I don't want to develop an entire language, just a few words. For example, I have named the different Kingdoms and each uses a variation of "ra" in the name to represent land. "Rasol" is meant to mean Land of the Sun or "Braten" is Forrest Land. There are events and religious things I want to name from the ancient language but I am having a hard time coming up with how to do it. The main thing I want to use is a sporting event very significant in the culture. It greatly resembles a global sport but I can't call it that because typical sports do not exist. I think the ancient language, especially with something so significant in the society, would be the easiest way to name the sporting event. I am truly stumped by this. I'm not looking for anyone to name these things but rather for advice on how to come up with the words on my own. Like I said, I am a rookie to writing and really would be able to move my novel along faster if I can come up with a method to using this ancient language. I don't even have a name for the language, lol. Thank you ahead of time.
