The Dailies. April 28
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?0

More for Nahul. (Is anyone reading this?)
I’ve decided that go- is the general negative prefix for new word coinages, like English “un-“, Swedish “o-” etc.
su (adj) equal
lo-mem (v) to weigh, memá, ‘I weighed’
sumem (n) balance, equilibre; lit. ‘equal-weigh’. I wanted something that meant ‘equal weight’, just like “equilibre” and Swedish “jämvikt” – but that would be suhim memoth, which is a bit unwieldy.
sumerem (n) also balance. Just a variance born from reduplication
gosumem, gosumerem (n) imbalance, disruption. A strongly negative word when used in a wider sense.
lo-kur (v) to sound, to make noise
kuru (n) sound. I wasn’t happy with using any of my existing nominal affixes here, so I decided that -u is yet another such affix, if not a productive one.
mekuru (n) harmony. Lit. ‘together-sound’.
gomekuru (n) disharmony, disruption – another strongly negative word
Every once in a while! I’m afraid I don’t follow other users’ contributions particularly often but I’m glad to see the activity.
“harmony” is a great coinage 🙂
And that’s fine! (I mean I was inactive for many months myself…)
I’m reading! Just on delay. I keep dropping off for days because work or health then come back and try to catch up.
I love your words, especially gomekuru.
And that’s cool!
