The Dailies. July 15

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. I started a new conlang today! Yay!

     

    I’ve had orcs on the brain lately, and I’m toying with the notion of making an orc-centered world a Patreon thing where I write snippets, worldbuild and conlang concurrently and post about it. So I did some¬†very¬†basic stuff for that!

    I decided that my conlang will be agglutinative and fairly highly synthetic. I’d love to try to make it polysynthetic, but I’m not sure exactly where that line is drawn. It’s probably gonna have cases because I just love the idea of orcs having linguistic features that are associated with fancy or advanced languages. I started on my phoneme-inventory but just took apart two names I used in a snippet for parts, so I only have a few so far. Not to mention the two names used all the same phonemes except one. Lol!

    Looking forward to continue on this.

      1. Yeah, that’s sort of what I’d like to accomplish, I’m just not clear on exactly where the lines falls cuz with shorter statements obviously even non-polysynthetic but highly synthetic can do them with one word (I mean, like, subject verb and object in the same word, that sort of thing).

        1. I think that’s your key right there: with shorter statements. But with polysynthetic, it’s the default way of conveying information rather than the exception, even if the sentence/idea is much longer. It all rolls together inextricably.

          1. That’s a handy thing for me to remember as a rule of thumb.

            We’ll see whether I can pull that off as I start building or whether I can’t manage it, in which case I’ll just go for the high end of synthetic.
