Lexember 1

Welcome to the Lexember Challenge!

Every year, conlangers can take the opportunity for the month of December to challenge ourselves to add a new word to our conlang’s lexicon.

What word have you coined today? Any cultural or associated worldbuilding notes? Tell us about your inspiration!

  1. I almost forgot about Lexember but I am determined to participate. I’ve decided that if I’m not feeling inspired by anything particular on a day, I will take on of the randomly generated words I have that don’t yet have a meaning and combine with something from the list I have of Swadesh and similar lists.

    So today, I coined ihe meaning to stand. So far it only has the “plain” meaning contrasting to “to sit”, “to lie” etc but it will likely take on more metaphorical meanings as well eventually.

  2. Firen gets two new words today, from a single root:

    vůssi, an unpleasant surprise, and vůssa, to feel shocked (patientive transitive).

    I haven’t been around much but I hope to change that with Lexember. I’m not so great at streaks, but having something simple to keep me on task each day should help.

  3. Commented on the wrong post
