Re: The Esseintial Ch’eweyõw̌e Blog

I enjoyed reading this (which is to say the posts from this year, since I figured the previous ones were out of date). I too like the general esthetic of the language. The various processes give it an extra layer of depth without going overboard. Thanks! I’m glad someone read it and liked it! Could...

Re: Lexicon milestones

Meyyın rebooted now has 3 words. They are:

luuy - blood
taw, pl. tawii - eye
než, pl. nižžii - hand

Come to think of it, I also have 19 forms of the copula from the root n ~ nii and the verb gis - to die.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I’ve revived a super ancient conlang of mine called Meyyın and I’m redoing it from the start. It’s so fun.

The first word coined in it is

yeyssiig n. - mounted warrior

Re: The Esseintial Ch’eweyõw̌e Blog

The Wonders of Umlaut There is Umlaut. Yes, vowels become other vowels under the influence of neighbouring vowels. But only when said neighbouring vowels are actually glides masquerading as vowels. It’s great. Long ago i.e. on Tuesday , I mentioned that there are stems that end in a glide, or more ...

Re: Pre-Update

It's been way too long since I've posted here. Recently I've been in a bad state mentally and emotionally, which is the reason for my relative silence within the conlanging sphere in general. Anyway, I'm back now, and I'll start making more regular updates to this. [<3] Looking forward to it. [:)]

Re: The Esseintial Ch’eweyõw̌e Blog

Simple Vowel-Final Stems and Glide Excrescence Now that we have a solid grasp of how the underlying stems interact with suffixes and tone shifts (you’ve all memorised the rules of course?), vowel-final stems should be fairly straightforward. I’m going to start with stems ending in -o as they presen...

A quick google yielded a 20-year-old webpage with a song.

Maybe I’ll use the word nyéwo for lake, inspired by Chleweyish nyivo. The plural is then nyewówo (see post below).
