:con: A language with 15 words
rugzectagn /ˈrʊʒət͡ʃaɲ/ fearsome
Yes, that's a weird word for the 15th word but I wanted to test how to derive the adjectives.

In Raumanœtro, the latest word is "si" (pronounced /si/). It means if.

It entered the lexicon because I realised I didn't have a way to express the conditional in it, so I decided to just use the same thing as the other Romance languages, since Raumanœtro is a Romlang. This is actually surprising for Raumanœtro due to the fact that there is neither influence from Gothic nor Etruscan.

It comes from latin sī.

belsadozahongfash -- Kankonian for "pick-up artist". Belsado is "to turn on" or "arousal", while zahong is a verb meaning "to bait", and -fash is an agent noun suffix (like -er). A pick-up artist can also be called a belsadozahongis (the same but with the suffix -is, similar to -ist, instead of -fash), or a molikslakhfash (lit. "bait-thrower"), or a belsadomolikis (lit. "turn_on-bait-ist") -- belmol for short.

I also coined a number of words related to click beetles. Hikiket woshi is an eyed click beetle (hikiket is an onomatopoetic word for "click beetle", and woshi means "eyed", like a peacock's tail -- it in turn is derived from woshas (ocellus) and the adjective suffix -i). Hikiketrami is a wireworm (rami means "larva"), and hikiketokh means specifically an adult click beetle, as opposed to a wireworm (-okh is a suffix for adult animals, the opposite of -i*: karaph, dog; karaphi*, puppy; karaphokh, adult dog).

In Kobardon, my newest word is mirepa meaning wistfulness, the feeling of missing someone. Incidentally, it seems to mean we split in the natlang Ternate.

That's a pentasyllabic mouthful. Do Basha Humrayan speakers have any everyday word that means "bug"?

Yes :) [it's "Kahnta" or "Kidta": Kidtas byojenuschascha as = a bug is an animal lifeform with six legs]. But I invented a system that makes words that describe things technically for Humrayan science and philosophy. Like how English makes scientific and philosophical neologisms, but we borrow words from Greek and Latin. I wanted to have the same concept, but using words from the language itself... maybe like how the Germans today sometimes do things :)

Cool!

I have a number of Leholangs (conlangs from the Lehola Galaxy) that have go-to languages for inkhorn words. Kankonian has Ciladian, Tentan has Bionjengese, Achel has Psaib, Javarti has Jukasta, Quispe has Mazmiza.

Wow! I don't have a go-to language for inkhorn words? I'm not sure what language ancient Sanskrit speaking people would use as their go-to language? I'll have to do some research!

My newest word in my conlang is "Krasataya" which means "Computer." From the Seed-radical "Kra" meaning "Machine / Machanism" + the Humrayan word "Sataya" meaning "Information / Data." Sataya comes from the Sanskrit word "Satya" meaning "truth / essence." I made the word "Satya" into the Humrayan word "Sataya" because a concept of quantum mechanics and Buddhism is that information [dhamma] is the fundamental essence of the physical universe.

I had to invent the concept of a "seed-radical." I got the idea from this:

Seed-radicals are single syllable radicals that follow a specific pattern of phonemes (Consonant + r/l/ll/w/y + Vowel) and may only be appended at the beginning of roots or the beginning of words and which have fixed or immutable meaning. The seed-radical "Kra" means "Machine / Mechanism" which comes from the Sanskrit root "Kr" meaning "Work / Labor / Build" which is the root in the Sanskrit word "Karman" from where English gets the word "Karma."

The newest word in Humrayan is "Racdvesatum" /rɑʔ.'dvɛ.sɑ.tũᵑ/. It means "To love and hate something at the same time. To love something a lot, but to also hate it because of how it makes you feel." Like when you hear a song you love, but that song reminds you of someone who broke your heart.

Cool!

The closest thing I have to that in Kankonian is the noun shemebet hel bades bam, which I translate as "love-hate relationship". It literally means "relationship with two heads".

The newest word in Basha Humrayan is "Kardapospa," which means "slime mold." From the Sanskrit root word "karda" meaning mud/muddy, which is in the Sanskrit word "Kardama" meaning "slime." And from the Sanskrit word Puspa, meaning a kind of fungus.

I thought I'd start naming all of the plants and animals in and around my local area that I see everyday. And so my latest word today is "Trupuuysaupa," which means Skunk Cabbage. Skunk Cabbage grows everywhere here for miles and you can smell it in the air.

Trupuuysaupa is made of two parts: Tru is a prefix that means a plant or vegetation of some kind + Puuysaupa which means skunk. The seed root of Puuysaupa is "Puuy" which is the Sanskrit root meaning to stink. Saupa is a word which means an animal that looks like badgers and squirrels.

The newest word in Humrayan is "Byoromaka" which means "Mycelium." Byoromaka is made of three parts: Byo + Roma + Aka. Byo is a prefix meaning a "Life Form." Roma is Sanskrit for "Fur / Body Hair." Aka is the Sanskrit diminutive suffix. Romaka means "fuzz," or that which is fuzzy. And so Byoromaka means a "life form that is fuzzy."
