Not sure why you put that in code markers if it wasn't to line up your gloss.

Doesn't that look better and easier to read? :-)

You're right. Honestly, I wasn't expecting anyone to read my gloss. [xD] Anyway, thanks to you, I noticed I forgot a clitic so I fixed the gloss now.

Georgian
ნურც მე ნურც ჩემს შვილს ნუღარასოდეს დაგველაპარაკები!

Code: Select all

nur-c    me        nur-c    čem-s  švil-s    nu<ġa>ra-sodes        da-gv-e-laṗaraḳ-eb-i
PROH-TOO 1SG(.DAT) PROH-TOO my-DAT child-DAT PROH<ever_again>-when PVB-1PL.B-APPL-speak-THM-NPST.1/2
  • I'm not really sure how agreement works with arguments in a "neither... nor" disjunction. Googling around suggests the features are combined (1SG + 3SG = 1PL), which I've done here. An alternative would be to use stripping (a kind of ellipsis) to avoid the question of agreement resolution altogether: ნურც მე დამელაპარაკები, ნურც ჩემს შვილს nurc me damelaṗaraḳebi, nurc čems švils "neither me(.DAT) speak:FUT.1SG>2SG, neither my child.DAT".
  • Georgian has this remarkable way of forming negative indefinites. The language has three flavors of negation, and you can build combine them pretty freely with any indefinite pronoun base: e.g., არასოდეს arasodes "never" (normal negative), ვერასოდეს verasodes "can't ever" (modal negative), ნურასოდეს nurasodes "don't ever!" (prohibitive). Then, there's this little infix -ღა- -ġa- that adds an "any more / again" meaning: აღარასოდეს aġarasodes "never again", ვეღარასოდეს veġarasodes "can't any more", ნუღარასოდეს nuġarasodes "don't any more!".

RED-never AUX.2SG-2SG-LOC or=SELF-1SG or=child-1SG speak-NEG=PFX
  • Again dealing with the disjunction is challenging... Here I went with the default LOC marker on the auxiliary to index the disjoined indirect object. I haven't thought about how stripping would work in this language, maybe I'll play around with that.

for my conlang Ðaujai:
Je bneiye keni aifenne jade sikke se za ziya taiü.
[d͡ʒɛ 'bne.jɛ 'kɛ.ni ai.'fɛn.nɛ 'd͡ʒɑ.dɛ 'sik.kɛ zɑ 'zi.jɑ 'tɑi.u]

Code: Select all

je    bneiye    keni       aifenne  jade       sikke    se  za                  ziya taiü.    
not  talk-IMP  once_again  never    neither  to.1.MASC. to  ART.ACC.MASC.ANIM.  son  my.
Ðaujai's conjunctions tend to go before the first of the items that they are linking. Jade is a contraction of je, the negation adverb, and ade, akin to English's "not". Because ade is such a conjunction, jade precedes the first listed item, sikke. For instance, the expression (excuse my romanization), "with scythe and sword", or "with all they've got.":

Code: Select all

yei      an        ȿîmata     an       surr       
[je      ɑn        ʃɪ.mɑ.tɑ   ɑn       sur]
CONJ   PREP.INSTR  scythe     PREP     sword
But yei is archaic. The modern conjuction is kvi: "Mark and Keuyeȿí are going to London."

Code: Select all

Tirr   kvi    Marku  Keuyeȿí  drei      Londra.   
Go-PL. CONJ. Mark    Keuyeȿí  PREP.ALL  London
.

We see negative concordance, of course. Conjugating prepositions too: sikke, but unconjugated se before the modified noun.
Well that was fun. Thanks.
