Lexicon sculpting

Post by Void »

Edit: (Original description) In this thread we suggest words, and somebody who likes it may adjust it to the phonology of their language - or adjust the phonology to the word, if they like it that much, I suppose - and bring it into their lexicon along with the sense that was given, then showcasing the final pronunciation and spelling and whatever of the word after taking it, and any slight adjustments that perhaps had to be made to the sense.

kʼortosuy /kʼor.tos.uj/ n. spider

Next: siqʼoy /siqʼ.oj/ v. to love, be fond of (said of love amongst family or friends)
