Hālian's Alleged Scratchpad

Post by Hālian »

I'm finally joining the cool kids in 2011 and getting myself a scratchpad. Expect clonging and worldbuilding stuff to be posted here intermittently. Or not.

To start out:

Nouns in the Lessan language are collective-singulative, with a polysingularizing noun class system, listed and exemplified below:
  1. Sacred concepts: deities, radioactive chemicals, most magic/psionics terminology
  2. Persons: names of sapient species, personal names, names of ethnic groups, sophont body parts
  3. Pack animals: birds, termites, fish, animal body parts
  4. Wild animals: dragons, boars, shellfish, cuts of meat
  5. Fruits: includes all native food plants, even if not fruit
  6. Plants: trees, moss, algae, non-native food plants
  7. Things: "other", includes qualified nouns from other classes like "red hair" or "broken bone"
  8. Abstract concepts: locatives, diminutives, infinitives, some magic/psionics terminology, most scientific terminology
  9. Animate singulars: singularizes classes 2, 4, 5
  10. Inanimate singulars: singularizes classes 3, 6, 7
  11. Abstract singulars: singularizes classes 1, 8

Including by reference this post about number words in Classical Āirumāli, and soliciting feedback on everything that was, is, & will be in this thread.

Also this post about number words in Lessan, along with a brief overview of the language that mostly duplicates what's in the OP of this thread.

TODO: assign a meaning to every possible single-syllable Lessan word.
