The Dailies. October 5

The Dailies. October 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?

  1. Making progress on my paradigm and also figured out how to properly refer to a number as noun, e.g. ihanguede is the impersonal verbal “a thousand (of them)”.

  2. I made the passive voice, but I have to tweak it. At the moment, the passive voice includes the Accusative Case, which for me seems like an active-passive hybrid and leads to confusion.

    This is the current construct:

    madhid-ikh-in khanishu-me u-mela
    give-PST-1MSG book.F-ACC PN.3FSG-DAT
    I gave (the) book to her.

    madhid-im-ikh-u khanishu-me u-mela
    give-PASS-PST-3FSG book.F-ACC PN.3FSG-DAT
    (The) book was given to her.  

    What I don’t like is that I left the noun receiving the action in the Accusative case. Therefore, I think I will go with this construction:

    madhid-im-ikh-u khanishu u-mela
    give-PASS-PST-3FSG book.F PN.3FSG-DAT
    (The) book was given to her.

    In the last example, the book is now in the nominative and the verb has the passive suffix -im which signals the reader that the sentence is passive and that the noun in the Nominative case is actually the object.

    Does any of this make sense to all of you?

  3. Computer was being weird last night so I never did my Thursday stream, which means I never did my conlaning XD. Will try to get some time for it this weekend since it should be fairly chill.
