Re: CBB Conlang Relay XIII

I've gone over my time limit, so I assumed I can't do anymore. It's just in English now. That’s not how it works. The key part of the relay is translating it and handing it off so that we can see the end result. The timeframe is just so that the whole thing doesn’t take forever but isn’t a hard lim...

So are you just not translating it or gonna go into a different conlang...?

Hi! Don’t worry, if you’re up for it I can still add you to Ring 1 since it has one player less than Ring 2.
Oh, well sure! I’ll join with Yinše.

Re: Lexember 2020

You're welcome. And I see you added some cousin terms. What do you call nieces and nephews who are your spouse's sibling's children? Good question! I don't know yet.

Lexember 16 Yemya I decided to do kinship terms today and I kinda went all out. I've opted not to include etymologies right now, though I may add them in later in a spoiler. Yemya has lost a lot of IE features like declension and conjugation. But I decided that kinship terms is one of the ways it's ...

Re: An IE lang

Some grammar ideas There are quite few real verbs: one rather 'makes preparation' than 'prepares'. Real verbs have preserved the old PIE present, aorist and perfect, which rather has an imperfect meaning. Nouns can, however, be inflected in person gönga 'I am a woman' gönta 'You are a woman' gön 'i...

Re: Lexember 2020

I’ve been waiting for Lexember all year. I’ve been less active because I’ve been finishing my MA and writing my thesis, but now that that’s finally coming to a close, I have time for a little conlanging. I’ll be joining in with Yinše this year.
