Valdyas is a fictional country in a fictional world. Ilaini is an invented language. I invented it for my own enjoyment and that of anybody else who enjoys it. It has no scholarly pretensions. Please don't make a fool of yourself by using my language pages for your linguistics case-work.

This is already the third version of the Ilaini-English Dictionary. It's probably still crawling with errors; if you notice a blatant one, please tell me.

The second version, converted to this one by trusty search-and-replace, was produced from a MySQL database by a Python script that Boudewijn made for me - in his words "a piece of cake", but the result was very impressive anyway. I don't have the database any more, worse luck, so I had to add new words by hand instead of simply running the script again and hacking it a bit to produce alphabetic ordering and background colour.

The words are ordered the Ilaini way, but by first letter only; after that the order is alphabetic (at least by what the computer thinks is the alphabet). This is quite true to type; in dictionaries and indexes made in Valdyas ordering after the first letter tends to be haphazard.

No Ilaini words begin with 'dh', 'gh', 'th' or 'zh', and though words beginning with 'u' are possible I don't have any.
