The Dailies. July 20

Did you work on your language today? Create any new rules of grammar or syntax? New progress on a script? New words in your lexicon?

On the other hand, do any excavating or reading or enjoying stuff you’ve already created? Do you have any favorites to share?

How did you conlang today?

  1. Today, I’m attempting to get to the bottom of the weirdness that is Akachenti’s yes/no words:


    Hushi gahót?       Have you eaten? (Have eaten, yes, you (acc.)?)

    Gahi. Aviat.         Yes. My parent. (in response to question)

    Na:si gah.            Grateful, yes. (Thank you.)

    Eh. Breki.             No. It’s not quiet.

    Iehi.                       No.

    Iehi gah.               That’s no good.


    This doesn’t even get into the negative verb infix, -r-. What these words mean actually and their etymology is rather curious to me. And important to figuring out a handful of other frequent expressions/patterns in the language.

  2. It’s been a very productive conlanging day for me, thanks to the daily challenge! I’ve cemented that adjectives go before the noun, and affix pronouns still attach to the noun. I’ve also determined (at least some) adjectives are compared with the affixes eli– (more) and eše- (most). I think this might just be for shorter adjectives but we’ll see. So far I’ve only used them with ones starting in a consonant, there may be some kind of elision for ones with an initial vowel.

    Several new words too:

    sio = tea

    kiri = to drink, and possible kiramdrink, but I don’t wanna overuse my -am ending indicating essence so we’ll see.

    njehi = young, possibly also small but I don’t know

    tere = close

    1. Congratulations! With the addition of the word tea, your language has entered the ranks of Civilization. 😀

      JK, but it’s an awesome word, the best. You have such pretty words.
