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. (Commenting on the right post this time.)

    Today, Firen gets an “untranslatable” word:

    gemmitif, “something that required skill and effort to produce, but which is nonetheless terrible”.

      1. To say “it is a gemmitif” most naturally, you would say “gemmitaza” (inanimate objects) or “gemmitade” (abstract concepts). If you were specifically naming something then you’d put it on either side of the verb (in absolutive (unmarked) case), but since “it” is a pronoun, it’s dropped.

        To say “this book is a gemmitif“, you would say “Vaiz kao gemmitaza.” (Or “Gemmitaza vaiz kao.“)
