Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - ONGOING (signups remain open)

Torch has been passed on to cedh! Received. Received. I'm not sure how much time exactly I can devote to the translation in the next few days, but I think it should be OK... Well, our side of the translation is averaging over a week per person, so I wouldn't worry too much... Speaking of that, give...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - IT BEGINS (signups remain open)

Just a quick heads-up, I have translated shimo's torch into English. Currently I'm waiting for some clarification from his side before I start translating it into Yélian. I assume I can forward the torch by tomorrow noon (UTC).

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - IT BEGINS (signups remain open)

I've passed the torch along to Iyionaku and sent the full version to Jackk. I've received shimo's torch! I have to say though that I'm caught completely off guard that the relay already started. I'm on vacation until Tuesday evening, so I can only start on Wednesday. If that poses any problem I can...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

And if you hadn't given the etymology, I would have thought sia was an Easter egg -- an allusion to the "party girl" song "Chandelier". Honestly, until I collected the entries from the thread, I thought that too, in fact, if I recall correctly, I even mentioned it on the board once (in the easter e...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Today I finished an overview of CBB loanwords in Yélian. I collected all the words from the "Lexicon sculpting" thread that made it into Yélian. In total, there are a stunning 268 words (mostly roots) that made it into Yélian from one of your languages! The most words, unsurprisingly, were derived f...

Re: Yélian: A revision

Does the enumerative case appear in any natlang? I see why it couldn't but I've never seen it. To my knowledge there isn't. The term is coined by myself; I used to call it "genitive" before, which doesn't fit as there is already a genitive that's formed differently. Of course there are languages th...
