The calendar of the Acana is based on the Moon Anker’s cycle. Instead of weeks or days of the week, like Monday or Tuesday, each day throughout the lunar cycle is allotted a special spelling based on numbers 1-31. Example: number Ju, which is the number one, is Jun when referring to the first day of the Moon cycle.

The technique is borrowed over when a certain number of days is mentioned, but only for 1 through 31. I have one cat would be I have ju cat. There is one day. There is Jun day. 

Jun can mean either “one day” or “the first day of the month.” Numbers from 32 and up do not apply and are instead spoken in the origin spelling followed by the Masiann word for number, Ninma. Thirty-two days would be Melch-ki Ninma while thirty-one days would be Melch-jun.

2: ki (Kin Day 2 of Anker’s cycle)

3: mel (Men)

5: Ni (Nin)

Masiann sentence as used in a Song of Hope:

Belono lamino ven tasomino: you are always welcome here and are free to stay as long as you like

Lamino; Lam= Welcome or wanted, mino=woman.

Tasomino= Tas-stay a long time, omi= like or desire of someone. no= state of being.  


Clomina xalo napto: My men will accompany you through the wetlands.

Clomina; clo=my, mina=men

Xalo; x= denotes to harsh conditions. Alo=wetland or swamp. 

Napto;  will lead (P indicates future tense)

Portiloa galaso: Leo’s interpretation of Iris’s answer, “So it (the fox) can take you to the portal is not an exact translation. A more accurate phrase would be, “The hidden portal, I am.” To further clarify, the “I am” is stuck on the end to indicate Iris seeing herself and her people as part of their beloved portal. Leo realizes this and translates so Cierra could understand.

Galaso; Gala= hidden, So=state of being or denoting to oneself.


Protoso yesways: “she will check” Leo translated, but Iris said this directly indicating herself.

Protoso; P=indicates future tense. Roto=search out, so=denotes to oneself

 Yesways; guarantee.
