The Dailies. September 8

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, a lot of researching Kartvelian verbs as Native American + Kartvelian languages most closely resemble the kind of language Akachenti is.

    Made a couple tables of old data updated to reflect a lot of new research.

    I finally went with these “aspectual” stems, but they have somewhat strayed from that original usage and I’m not even sure what other “aspects” should be present to have a balanced or naturalistic set of verbal paradigms, but it’s still a nice start to realize that perfect/discontinuous are basically two sides of one coin, so it actually makes sense.

    The big differences on the agreement markers front is that I’m going with three inherent cases and when the normal patientive forms are disallowed for phonological reasons, they fall back onto the dative forms. Causatives are still up in the air.

    Like Kartvelian languages, I’m also pretty sure Akachenti has stative and active verb classes, possibly others, and that which markers are called for varies on both stem type and valency.

    Oh! And a locative prefix has emerged, da-, and don’t ask me why “want” gave rise to a locative rather than a subjunctive. avidanlanguedo is an uninflected construction meaning, “A thousand years ago.”
