CBB Lexicon Building

Post by Void »

Edit: (Original description) The idea is this. One person posts a word in their conlang, and then a word/concept for the next person to translate. The next person translates that word, and it keeps on going.

pxinjâya [pxɪnˈdzaːja]

1. essence, spirit, pith, quintessence
2. principle, rudiments, essentials
3. chemical element
4. basic component

Next: think-tank
