Working on getting myself a proper desktop computer for gaming / video editing / 3d modeling purposes after years of secondhand laptops; figured I'd add a heap of miscellaneous computer terminology to Alál's noun lexicon. In general, I think in the digital age the language ends up co-opting the somewhat archaic handling class / nominalizer / derivational morpheme KLAŔ ("symbol"), whose meanings had largely been absorbed into MUŔ ("visual abstraction"), for digital or virtual manipulations of things. So a lot of verbs to do with affecting virtual objects will incorporate KLAŔ as a handling morpheme, and a few nouns will use it as well.

I think "paint-palette mind" is my favorite.

lım·ùḳîu|lım·ùḳâu|lım·ùḳùr (LMÙḲ) "cache" (little memory box)
mûh·ahaıṭ|mûh·ahaṭa|mûh·ahaúṭ (MHAH) "compact disc" (information disk)
 -also mhaıh|mhaha|mhaúh
ḳmárıù|ḳmâru|ḳmâraù "computer" (great parsing machine)
klá·alaıs|klá·alasa|klá·alaús (KLAL) "CPU" ("symbolic"/virtual mind)
klaımramıuà|klaımramuà|klaımramàuà "cursor" (visual abstraction that manipulates "symbols")
múklah·ùḳıù|múklah·ùḳàu|múklah·ùḳúr (MHÙḲ) "drive" (box for "symbolic"/virtual information)
 -also mhíuḳ|muhàuḳ|mhúḳ
mıḳàıẓ·alaıs|mıḳàıẓ·alasa|mıḳàıẓ·alaús (MAL) "GPU" (paint-palette mind)
xmaḷı·úmhíuḳ|xmaḷı·ûmhauḳ|xmaḷı·úmhúḳ "HDD" (magnet drive)
kalàẓhaıs|kalàẓhas|kalàẓhàs "keyboard" (sheet of heterogynous set of letters)
lîẓım|líẓıám|líẓumı "memory" (great heterogynous set of memories)
kahaıt|kahat|kahat "monitor" (sheet of light)
mùurhaıṭ|mùurhaṭ|mùurhàṭ motherboard (little internal lattice-sheet)
mıumrataıà|mıumrataà|mıumratàa "mouse" (tool that manipulates a visual abstraction)
mlaru·ìrıẓkalaì|mlaru·ìrıẓkalà|mlaru·ìrıẓkalàr (MRÌR) "OS" (governing program)
 -also mırìr|mrıár|mrurı, which is coincidentally also parse-able as "great ear" or "listening one"
kàh·ílíṭ|kàh·îlaıṭ|kàh·îluıṭ "pixel" (little color square)
rıẓkalaì|rıẓkalà|rıẓkalàr program ("symbolic"/virtual heterogynous set of actions)
lîẓım ítxıùzûak|líẓıám ítxıùzûak|líẓumı ítxıùzûak "RAM" (memory that is written to)
lîẓım ílıìrîak|líẓıám ílıìrîak|líẓumı ílıìrîak "ROM" (memory that is read)
lùmuk·úmhíuḳ|lùmuk·ûmhauḳ|lùmuk·úmhúḳ "SSD" (circuit drive)
lumak·umhíuḳ|lumak·umhàuḳ|lumak·umhúḳ (LKUḲ) "USB drive" (traveler drive)
 -pun on the term for SSD, since lùmuk "circuit" and lumak "traveler" share a root
 -also lkıuḳ|lkaḳu|lkúḳ for any removable storage

Writing things out this way really brings home just how many declension classes there are. Nine "simple" ones and then a trio of others for nominalized verbs and nouns with certain infixes (-kla-, -ha-, -ru-, -ta-, -mu-, -ma-...).
Edit: Substituted a string instrument for a French interjection.

I’ve gotten pretty much all of the CT logosyllabic canon mapped out in my notebook. Now I can work on new symbols to supplement what I have so far.

Did you never think to ask the barbarian whether they want to hack sth. to pieces? [:O] [:P]

I did enjoy puzzling out what each morpheme must be, though [:)]

That's a lot of derivations! I usually borrow my Kankonian computer terms from Javarti or Achel.

I see you also have some that aren't on my list, such as "GPU" and "motherboard". Good job!

Oooh, many thanks - I'll tackle some of these at some point!

I re-made my old one-page reference/morphology cheat-sheet for Alál. Funnily enough, despite containing more information than the last, it actually has a bit of empty space because I reformatted everything and removed no-longer-relevant information. Could probably make even more space if I shrunk down the whitespace in the noun declension bit. So there's room for some extra syntactic tidbits if I think of anything that I don't currently have memorized. This thing, in conjunction with the root list and slowly-growing nominal dictionary (I should eventually start one for verbs...) is all I need these days to put proper sentences together - assuming I don't forget everything else.

I'm mostly glad to have the full set of handling verbs / nominalizers / derivational affixes in there, since I'm trying to make more use of them. There's a rather large difference between bringing your uncle to a party using the verb root MAŔ (people), bringing your very drunk uncle to the party using the root ḶIŔ ("mushy matter" held loosely in one's hands), and bringing your stoic and not-party-friendly uncle using the root ḲIŔ (long stiff slender objects). I suppose you'd use TZIŔ (thing on display / thing carried on tray or platter / food) if he was famous and you wanted to show him off, and that's absolutely used as a cannibalism pun equivalent to "having someone over for dinner". Many of these aren't being used productively anymore and some have been repurposed (KLAŔ has seen new life for digital constructs and computer-related terminology). It's fun to hearken back to Alál's very, very distant roots during my time at the Navajo Language Academy.

Today was a wonderful day! I have long been interested in carpentry and I managed to make a small business out of my hobby. Therefore, now I am engaged in its development. Perhaps so far it doesn't bring such a large income, but it makes me happy. Developing partnerships is also an important part of the process. For this, I have been trying for quite a long time to find something that would help me with this question. And today I was lucky to stumble upon https://afreeadvice.com/best-affiliate- ... beginners/ and find the first partners. The partnership brought me not only my first clients but also my first earnings. I'm happy!
