dainye, -i • [ ‘dain.jɛ ] • adj., n., shield arm, in reference to the Chulotti warrior tradition of swearing loyalty and partnership to a fellow warrior, to fight and stand beside each other until death; commonly called shield brother, brother in arms, or shield arm in translation, sometimes simply shield. These partners are considered as family and take an active role in caring for and/or training each other’s children and caring for each other’s elderly when necessary.
Also, discovered that Chulotti is a zero copula language. Nice.
I like that concept!
Also yay zero copula.
Thanks! I feel like a lot of my conlanging comes out of my worldbuilding, and this world is way too much fun to play in.
I’m just going random on Lexember tbh.
wæna = meat. Note sure of the exact semantic limitations.
vōv: elegant; deriving beauty from simplicity (as in science or epistemology)
Firen: sek, side or facet.
Oooh! I really like this one. It’s one of my favorite meanings and it’s got a nice sound to it.
