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:

Thanks to Eldin, Humrayan has a new word: "Sarpanagha," which is the Humrayan word for a plant disease called "Witch's Broom":

Sarpanagha has two parts to it: "Sarpa" comes from the Sanskrit word "Sarpa," meaning "Snake," which is related to the word "Serpent." And "Nagha" means "Knot." Sarpanagha, because the Witch's Broom looks like a "rat king" of snakes.

Oh, cool. Broom is known as frazhea in Kankonian.

The newest Kankonian word is nakhiy, a one-morpheme word meaning "to descry, to catch sight of, to spy". I don't know how the absence of a word for this in Kankonian escaped detection for so many years!

The newest word in Basha Humrayan is "Hebragnayaca" (he-brag-NAY-ah-cha) which means "June Bug."

Hebragnayaca is made of two main partsː Hebra + Agnayaca.

Hebra comes from the Ancient Egyptian word "hprr/hprj" (Kheper/Khepri) meaning a Scarab Beetle. Agnayaca is the Humrayan name for the month of June. Agnayaca is named after the Vedic god of fire Agni, and the final +ca ending of Agnayaca is a truncation of the Humrayan word "Candla" [from Sanskrit Candra] meaning moon and month.

Hebragnayaca literally means the Scarab of Agni's Month (the beginning of the season of Summer, the hottest season of the year).

The Hebrangayaca is the sacred Sun Beetle of the Humrayan Sun god "Sulaya" [from Sanskrit Surya + Latin Sol]. It is sent by Sulaya to the earth as a sign of the commencement of Summer.

Interesting you mention this bc in my conlang I have roots for kheb- where khebra means mystical land of the lion kings. Kheb means abode/heaven. Different to -álce meaning place/location. In this lang you can't do khebálce as this would mean death's door. Oh a new word I just made up.
Sikatāyām kaṇam lokasya darśasi, svargam phale vanye ca.
See a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower.
Ānantam tava karatalena darasi, nityatām ghaṇṭabhyantare ca.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

Kuhlakaruugma Kuhphikan is my newest word in Humraya.

Kuhlaka = spot
Ruugma = disease
Kuhphika = monkey [+N suffix makes it an adjective]

Kuhlakaruugma Kuhphikan means "Monkeypox."

Newest word in Kuana:

/ɸ/, /ʍ/, and /ɴ/ are great sounds, and nothing you say can convince me otherwise.

The newest word in Proto-Western-Archipelagic (PWA) is:
ḱcɛ̀ /kʰʦʰɛ/
  • 1. to drench, to make thoroughly or completely wet
    2. to soak, to soak through
    3. to drown X (in Y)
    4. to flood X
    5. to radiate
    6. to emit a lot
    7. to be (very) noisy
    8. to jam a signal
    9. to drown out a sound
    10. to overwhelm enemy forces, to overwhelm in a fight
    11. to be too much, to be excessive
    12. to spread messily
    13. to make a mess, spec. with liquid, gelatinous material, gushy material, and/or granular material, to make a mess that is quite difficult to clean up
    14. to arrive, after a long and arduous trip or journey
    15. to realize, after a long and arduous time of studying and/or not understanding
The verb is quite flexible. I've been on a polysemy kick recently which really adds particularity to the flavour of a language. It's also notable that the realizations of the verb will often require slightly different syntactic environments as well as different nouns. I didn't separate these out based on their transitivity either, but I'll clean it up as I continue.

My most recent word in Ligodu is lo'omssaf /lo:mʃaf/, which simply means 'field'. Ligodu is still in a pretty early stage of development, so lo'omssaf literally just means 'grass place'.
