Here's a language I'm working on for the Gems. What do you think?

Gemtongue is the ancient language used on Homeworld. There are two main types: Written and Spoken. Written language is much stricter when it comes to word-order and uses more archaic words, while Spoken language is much looser. I’ll focus first on Spoken language, then move on to Written.

Here is a basic conversation in English:

“Hello. My name is Pearl. Who are you?”

“I am Rose Quartz.”

And here it is in Gemtongue:

“Sakkha. Nom-emma Gyrrabytso jamekh. Cakh-vos kva?”

“E-iya Jyan-no-Danna.”

Let’s analyze the vocabulary in this conversation:

Sakkha: Hello or Salute!

Nom: name.

Emma: feminine 1st person possessive ending

Gyrrabytso: Pearl, meaning literally, “Circle/Globe of Paradise.”

Cakh: Called, in the sense of “How are you called/Who are you?”

Vos: Plural 2nd person possessive ending

Kva: Turns sentence into a question.

E: I

Iya: Feminine “am.”

Jyan-no-Danna: Rose Quartz, literally, “Pink of the dawn/Sunrise Pink.”

Sounds like a lot of work!

I'm curious though - how did you go about picking these specific sounds? Is there a language you used for inspiration? Did you kind of just throw random letters together until they sounded cool? xD I've never tried making my own language or anything before, so I'm just curious about the process and what about these specific sounds made you think of having them be the language for this!
