The Dailies. August 5
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?0

I made a paragraph for the challenge on Day 3! I made a brief description about the land and its inhabitants. Yay me! In the process of doing so I made a few new entries:
phash [pʰɑʃ] (deter., adj.) many
dir- [diɾ-] (superlative prefix)
hanar [‘hɑ.nɑɾ] (adv.) also, too; derived from hana and
Yay for challenges!
I did the following for the challenge, and had some thoughts:
Ælaw kašiwyl, to-deu om yhwǣlam i-ælaw. Relšiwyl-tu yr nadehatu.
Blue we-like, because the ocean is-blue. We-wear-it at holidays.
We like blue, because the ocean is blue. We wear it at holidays.
I keep wanting to say Relšiwyl-tu as Relšwyl-tu but I don’t know if that actually makes sense because so far I haven’t had big consonant clusters like that. I have attested, however, sašet (weather) having the e swallowed with an affixed pronoun into sašt-leu (but it does not happen with pronouns that begin with a consonant cluster). So I’m thinking maybe it’s a thing that happens with affixed pronouns with one consonant? Admittedly, with the verb the vowel that goes is at the end, and in sašet the placement is obviously different so I dunno how logical this is…
I can’t see why it couldn’t happen. I would consider this a colloquialism since it is so easy for you to want to pronounce it with the consonant cluster. What do you think?
Hmm, yes, I suppose that would be a rather easy way to solve it. It’s “supposed” to be relšiwyl-tu but everyone just says relšwyl-tu, that sort of thing. I’ll keep that in mind as a sollution.
