The Dailies. October 19

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 went back to an old collaborative language project I did with a couple friends, and wrote a sentence generator for it. It’s not complete yet, since I only spent about two hours on it, but it’s fairly impressive already. The language is a simple verb-initial language called Dab Vi Suxi Kidap (“That which is spoken”). I put the generator on my website here, feel free to take a look. (There’s a couple other generators there too, as well.)

    Hopefully my efforts will spur a bit more activity and we can flesh out the vocabulary, after which it should be mostly usable as a language.

    I didn’t bother adding IPA transcriptions to the file and it’s too late to add them now, so instead I’ll just post the phonology in this comment. (It’s simple and (not unintentionally) not totally naturalistic.)

    Vowels: <a i u> /a i u/
    Stops: <p b k g> /p b k g/
    Non-sibilant Fricatives: <t d f v> /θ ð f v/
    Sibilants: <s z x j> /s z ʃ ʒ/
    (<z j> are disallowed in roots, instead being introduced solely by duplication of <s x>. That is, ss->z, xx->j)

    I must go to bed soon, though. So, “Ixu fufu-gabafig”! (That means “don’t die”, and it’s an informal/familiar farewell.)
