Re: How NOT to Conworld.

But that isnt going to stop me from pouring ever more effort into Poswa, Pabappa, and even my minor projects, because I never had any expectation that others seeing them would appreciate them in proportion to the effort I put into them ... I spend time on them because it's fun, and dont consider it...

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

This is a fascinating discussion, and it reminds me of the common observation among learners of Spanish of how hard it is to translate verguenza ajena into English. The difficulty largely lies on that concept being a type of actual shame, as English lacks an adequate equivalent of it. Interest-ngly...

Re: Lexicon milestones

I just reached 100 words in Yinše, which might be the most words I've ever created for a a priori conlang. [+1] DON'T GIVE UP! Keep at it! In other news, I've reached 1,000 words in Achel. Word #1,000 is tabhtajh , which means "age" (of a thing, not of a person or animal). Tabh is a stative verb me...

Re: Tulemo

It's actually uralt without <h>, though it's pronounced the same, and is, as far as I know and wiktionary can be trusted, unrelated to Uhr , the former stemming from a Proto-Germanic root and the latter from Latin hora . ur- is a common prefix for anything that's old, and e.g. also used to refer to...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

I have decided that I'll actually merge the ethereal and female noun classes together. The ethereal singular is a set including and similar "mi" and the female plural is a set including and similar to "mo". Because of the huge importance of the mother camel goddess concepts of femininity and ethere...

Re: Tulemo

Honestly, I just came up with the metathesis thing, in order to find a way for presopped resonants to be followed by the rising txne. Oh, OK. But it's a good metathesis thing. Thank you. Nicely said. You're welcome. Also: I recognize in "uhralt" the German words for "clock/hour" and "old". What doe...

Re: The Txabao language

Cool! You mean like these words replacing the Txabao genitive case? Potentially! I need to look at it again but I think I construed a construct case already that would be used in situations to for nouns of higher agency being possessed/associated with lower agency nouns. "The Queen of the city" ver...

Re: Tulemo

I just checked out the Wikipedia article on prestopped consonants. Fascinating stuff. I ought to put them in one of my future conlang inventions for the Lehola Galaxy.

Re: Tulemo

I see.

I suppose if a human speaker were to try to begin a syllable with [mp], s/he would end up with prenasalization.

Re: Tulemo

I got interested in dvandva compounds, which Pabappa mentioned in L&N Q&A thread. Tulemo will also have them. If mother and father are boringly mam-a and pap-a, parents is mapmápa or papmàma. Auxiliary agrees it as an animate plural. I cannot find up how it morphologically differ from a normal comp...

Re: Lexicon milestones

I just reached 500 words in Achel, the lingua franca of Keitel. Word #500 was dil, defined as video (something to be watched).

Word #501, incidentally, was zhai, defined as video (as opposed to audio).

What is a good lexical source for an obviative marker? Yønsen has a proximate/obviate system but I don't know how to derive it in the protolang.
How about a word for "other"?



Welcome to the CBB, by the way!
