Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Kompalia on the other hand is IIRC mostly located on B2 and C2 as well as possibly some D3? That might be too far away geographically, but its not impossible that some interaction might take place if they go further east and find a way across the mountains once the Bokisig confederation has settled...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I was just thinking of customs the desert tribes may have. What if there was a tradition of "sky burial" or "silent towers" where basically you put a dead body up high in a specially made tower or on a rock specifically for scavenging birds to consume? The idea being that the body should not be bur...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Before too much time passes, do you think there should be any more major rivers or is this pretty good to your eyes? I feel as though I should add some more in the north actually. Even though it is arctic or tundra I notice rivers still exist in such regions. sure we should give some major rivers a...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

lol Sitr people did not invent the script ex nihilo, they created it from inspirations of another script, uncertain the source of inspiration though Oh, OK.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Sitr script: https://i.imgur.com/8kT7hzl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lBCcOtH.jpg I like it! The G in the inscription script looks like the letter hu (Kankonian's H), turned around a little. lol Sitr people did not invent the script ex nihilo, they created it from inspirations of another script, uncerta...

Re: Creating pronouns and grammatical words/affixes

Articles can arise from demonstratives. i.e. English “the” is from “that”. Indefinite Pronouns can be from nouns or interrogative pronouns i.e. “someone”, “anyone/anybody”, “everyone/everybody”, “nobody” can arise from compounds involving the word for “person”, “body”, “one” or “who”; “something”, “...

Thank you! [:D] you are welcome (: also I wonder if it is possible to make more ethnolinguistic groups in the areas we have? We definitely need more.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Woo! Do you by the way know a way to put a sortable table into a Fandom article? I've been reluctant to post vocab articles so far cause just a plain list without rows and the possibility to sort by either language seems harder to maintain (and less nice to look at). The wikitable of Wikipedia work...

Re: False friends and other unfortunate coincidences

just found this:

Tagalog: titi - n. p***is

Cebuano: titi - n. A respectful term of address to any familiar older man.

Both languages are spoken in the Philippines and both languages are widely used.

Re: A Collaborative Stone-Age Conlang

Also for 6. if you want some inflections on verbs, what would the categories be? I was thinking a bit of TAM and some person-marking. For number seven, you suggested pro-drop. I was thinking that perhaps for a parent-child register, there could be explicit person-marking on the verb. And for the ad...

Re: A Collaborative Stone-Age Conlang

well I am mainly here to give ideas.

Also for 6. if you want some inflections on verbs, what would the categories be?

And for 14, yeah maybe the "-ty" affix should be at least etymologically related to "ten", but you decide what to do.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I guess the area for Sitr speaking people is similar to West Europe and North Europe, and many parts of the area can be pretty forested in their natural states. @Nachtuil

The south might be drier and could be similar to South Europe and the coastal area of North Africa.

hello I want to make some proposals for the grammar: 1. SOV as the basic word order 2. postpositions instead of prepositions 3. the nonexistence of nominal cases 4. adjectives are nouns essentially meaning "someone/something that is...", thus adjectives modifying nouns are actually appositions meani...
