Re: What did you accomplish today?

Just finished the 25-letter Javarti alphabet. S becomes X and Z becomes J with the help of a ^-shaped diacritic called a txekhi, but they're considered separate letters. Aside from X and J, letters for Q, Ü, and Y were added after Javarti adapted Jukasta's alphabet. 29 new Javarti words got borrowed...

This time around, I want to make the script borrowed. I'll take Jukasta words (Jukasta being to Javarti what Latin and ...

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

Of course, we also have lots of "in the process of" words that maintain the a- as adjectives or adverbs, without the -ing. Consider the perfectly modern English passages that use "aglow" or "abuzz"!

Re: Weird Dream Thread

That's exactly it. You mentioned F-words and then I saw that and was like "That's got to be Khemehekis." I've done that quite a lot. Here's an old post about me doing C-words for Kankonian. You'll note that I add a word for "coronavirus", just as the world is going into lockdown.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I like the Kankonian Alphabet! I personally prefer practical alphabets/scripts one can actually write with, hand writing with using pen/pencil and paper, jot down quick notes with, as opposed to the digital artsy-fartsy conlang alphabets. Glad you liked it! Yeah, I drew the letters with a black pen...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I wasn't aware that there was a difference between north and south Korean. Dialects in Southeast Asia tend to switch Rs and Ls. Basically, many words that begin with an L/R sound in one Korean dialect begin with an N sound in the other. I forget which is which. I should probably just ask my brother...

Love the two-column look of the dictionary, and can't wait to see it grow! Thank you! It was quite the learning curve, but it was so worth all the trouble once I figured it out. You're welcome. I think I reached close to 720 words, but there are currently just over 600 words in the dictionary. I th...

The newest word in Humrayan is "Khiospa," which is the name for Cytisus Scoparius, commonly called "Broom." Broom grows everywhere around the areas where I live; I needed a name for it in my conlang. They have bunches of pretty yellow flowers: https://www.linkpicture.com/q/cytis...

That's a cool alphabet! I like it. It reminds me of Armenian writing. Wow. I definitely didn't think of Armenian when I made my alphabet.
