The Dailies. January 4

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. #Lextreme2018

    This is the hashtag I created on Twitter for those of us who wanted to continue the Lexember challenge. This challenge is to create one word each day for the entire year of 2018 without derivations nor compounds. Of course, one can still derive other words from those freshly added to one’s lexicon. I already made at least one word per day since January 1st, so I will update you all here. If you are so inclined, please participate! I think with all of the added words, I should be able to whip up some of those translation challenges!

    • Day 1:
      • lahet (lahed-) [ˈlɑ.hɛt]

        1. to carry, bring
        2. to deliver
    • Day 2:
      • dhashit (dhashid-) [ˈdʰɑ.ʃit]

        1. to play (an instrument)
    • Day 3:
      • moilaro (moilar-) [mɔɪ.ˈlɑ.ɾo]

        1. to sing, chant
        2. (of a bird) to warble, chirp
    • Day 4:
      • kashet (kashed-) [ˈkɑ.ʃɛt]

        1. (intransitive) to play a beat, drum
        2. (transitive) to beat (something or someone)
      • kashada [kɑˈ.ʃɑ.dɑ] (from kashet)
        n. neut (pl. ~ne)

        1. beat, rhythm
        2. (linguistics) syllable
    1. Congrats and awesome! Great words and I love that you’re doing such an ambitious challenge. I’ve got a little murkier foundational stuff to work on before I get back to lexiconning.

      I think my favorite of this batch is kashada.
