The Dailies. April 16

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. So the other day, I figured out Veset meant blade, so since there’s a blade class spaceship, it’s been noodling in the back of my brain how to call that. Today, I settled on hamahe vezesot, with the first word meaning “integrated spaceship” vs. a ship that has no human avatar, and -esot meaning “class” essentially, though I can tell it’s not that simple were I to unpack it. Hamahe is also my first riftspace word with stress on the second syllable rather than the first and the medial <h> is silent, particularly interesting to me because it is not silent in the name Nohe.

    1. Oh, I thought you meant “class” as in grammatical noun class/gender! What’s a blade class spaceship, is that an SF category I should know about?

      I like the word hamahe.

      1. Thank you! I’m fond of that one.

        My worldbuilding notes (which are… uh… wip? and seriously character-focused, one of the “innovations” is shimmer, a new way of using riftspace for camouflage in this story):


        Blade Class: The first infiltration warship of this class is considered a stable prototype, nevertheless proved stable enough for active duty usage. On integration, the integrate synced with an eight-year-old girl with previously unheard of native-syncing ability, due to her leveling affinity of 5, but who was untrained as a pilot and had not been tested nor fitted for syncing. Due to the inability to fully test the ship for battle conditions, etc., no further ships would be developed in the class until she was of age and skill to properly pilot. Nevertheless, several of the innovations featured in the class were able to be tested then implemented in other ship classes.


    1. The Lextreme2018 challenge is a tag I created on Twitter that documents a new word each day for the entire year. I started it on January 1. Mike Bacon (creator of Kardak) suggested it after Lexember (the December challenge of making a word each day for the month of December). There are a few of us who are doing this challenge.
