The Dailies. May 18
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

I have come to accept I am not a consistent conlanger, but I’ve still been trying to write and have had need for another naming / really simple language. No phonology yet. It’s for humanoid dragon clans and I’ve expanded from the original two words I’ve had to start with for weeks now.
kacha, -os • hard, one of the primary dragon genders characterized by a more territorial nature, smaller scent glands, a lower voice, greater brute strength, broader shoulders and heavier wings and claws, and more “breath”
auffe, -es • soft, one of the primary dragon genders characterized by a more clannish nature, larger more developed scent glands, a higher softer voice, greater physical endurance, greater dexterity with wings and claws and general flexibility, etc.
kane, -esti • tempered, one of the primary dragon genders characterized by being a blend of hard and soft features that can give an androgynous appearance to those familiar with male and female. Kanesti are not all perfect tempereds and may “lean” hard or soft, which means they may opt to use their leanings as their pronouns and gender rather than their tempered nature. These are kachakane and auffekane.
geset, -os • mother, referring to the parent that carried the child to term. As all fertile dragons are capable of fathering or carrying children, different children within the same home and familial clan may call different parents geset or kafa, especially as carrying multiple children can soften a dragon’s physical features and most kacha choose to only carry once to prevent this. The endearment form of the word is gessy, plural gessos.
kafa, -es • father, referring to the parent that fathered the child.
sokon, -esti • man, refers to an adult human male
iban, -esti • woman, refers to an adult human female
dono • yes, or I hear, in response to an authority or higher ranked person
aouo, -e • to be, takes a predicate nominative
Really fascinating! I think this would fit into a book about dragons very well. There’s an enchanting alienness to it.
Thank you! I feel like I’ve got a good start on it at last. 😀
I love this gender system! Your dragon culture souns so interesting.
Thank you! I’m having fun with it. 🙂
