CBB Conlang Relay XIV - IT BEGINS (late signups accepted)

Post by Jackk »

Hello—it's that time of year again! [:D] (For context, the previous relay may be found here.)

For any first-timers, in a conlang relay you will receive:
  • a text in someone's conlang
  • a description of the necessary grammar to gloss said text
  • sufficient lexicon to translate the text into English
Having translated the text into English, you will create:
  • a translation of said text into your conlang
  • a description of the necessary grammar to gloss said text
  • sufficient lexicon to translate the text into English
You will pass these three things on to the next person in your ring, and these + the english translation you have made of your predecessor's text on to the organiser (myself). [Optionally you may also provide an English translation of your own conlang's text, for comparison].

Turnaround time per person will be 72 hours, but we're decently lenient about late work. [:)]

RING 1:
1a. Jackk | Cambresc [tick]
2a. protondonor | Waľavaľwa (13-15 Sep) [tick]
3a. loglorn | Middle Chiñ (16-20 Sep) [tick]
4a. anonymous123 | Ghoni (21-27 Sep) [tick]
5a. Frislander | Asta (28- Sep - 4 Oct) [tick]
6a. dendana | Élouvien (5-7 Oct) [tick]
7a. Johnathan_4 | tɐ́lʒrə̬k (8-13 Oct)
8a. DzêtaRedfang | Atruozan (14-16 Oct)
9a. Mándinrùh | Atili (17-19 Oct)
10a. Acipencer | Wama (20-22 Oct)
11a. Salmoneus | Old Wenthish (23-25 Oct)
... | ...
...

RING 2:
1b. Jackk | Cambresc [tick]
2b. Davush | Osroene (13-16 Sep) [tick]
3b. kiwikami | Alál (17-21 Sep) [tick]
4b. Click | Corcyran (22 Sep-12 Oct) [tick]
5b. Man in Space | Classical Ĝate n Tim Ar (13-15 Oct)
6b. VaptuantaDoi | Añoþnın (16-18 Oct)
7b. DesEsseintes | Gùrá’aan (19-21 Oct)
8b. ixals | Zherdun (22-24 Oct)
9b. Azunite | Ansang (25-27 Oct)
10b. Iyionaku | Yélian (28-30 Oct)
11b. Titus Flavius | Epos (31 Oct-2 Nov)
... | ...
...

TIPS & TRICKS
  • If you cannot for the life of you find a word from the text in the lexicon you've been given, don't hesitate to message your predecessor. No-one is infallible and we forget random words all the time. :)
  • Once you have translated your given text into English, consider doing a quick rewrite to smooth over any awkward phrasings or non sequiturs. Not only will this improve the coherency of your English translation and make it easier to render in your language (and later to decipher!), but it will also help the process of Chinese Whispers along!
(Suggestions for more tips are appreciated.)

-

The original text will have 118 words.

I'll do it with Waľavaľwa! (Thus forcing me to speed up the glacial process of semshifting.)

Definitely up for this again! Will probably use Alál, unless I feel particularly inspired to work some more on V4.
Edit: Substituted a string instrument for a French interjection.

I'd like to join with Osroene. Could I also be placed at the top (or near) due to upcoming time constraints if that's not a problem for anyone else? Thank you!

Time to throw my hat into ring, I haven't touched Asta in a while and I've been using that before so time to bring it back.

I'd love to join! Maybe with Élouvien since I've been on a roll with that one, but might use a different conlang when the time comes if whoever's after me doesn't want a very European language and/or I get bored of Élouvien. Definitely not going to use a Ngerupic conlang though, since I know others have a bunch of those already, and not Kaxangulá since I used that last time.

Welcome! Do you know which of your languages you'll be using in the relay? :)

I will use Proto-Tenian rather than Pasethetacas. It's because it has much less SAE grammar and I like, when final text is totally different

Double-post, because in the OP I'm listed two times, as the 5th with Pasethetacas and 13th with Proto-Tenian. I should be only on the 5th position, with Proto-Tenian.

Oops, my bad—I should have noticed that you were not in fact two people.

You will receive the text (and enough grammar to gloss it, and enough lexicon to translate it) from the person before you in the ring.
Edit: Oh, you still haven't declared which of your own languages you will be translating the text you get into.
