The Dailies. November 13
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

Today I finalized a grammatical piece that’s been a thorn in my side, lately. Earlier I mentioned that the word, “Lortho,” is the combination of the name of the god Lor plus the archaic genitive form –tho. I really didn’t like that explanation since I couldn’t come up with a history of this form. However, after listening to the Conlangery Podcast on possession (Conlangery Episode #24), I decided to make –tho the inalienable genitive, meaning that the possessor and possessee are inseparable (such as family members, et al). I think this will also open up more options to use –tho in other situations within Lortho.
Oooh, I like that!
So I forgot to get a challenge for today scheduled before I left to spend the night out of town, so I’ll just have two for tomorrow, I guess. Hopefully I can find some good and fairly grammatically simple quotes that other people can translate.
