The Dailies. July 23

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. Last week I poked a little bit at my orc conlang (currently very creatively called Orklang) every day, including yesterday during my weekly stream. I’ve landed on trying for polysynthetic, ergative-absolutive with free(ish) word order. Yay choices!

    As I mentioned before I had picked out a line (from a fiction snippet) that I wanted to be able to render in Orklang as a first goal of building it. Yesterday I sort of split that sentence up into what parts the Orklang original might need, so I have something to go after. Here is my “sketches” for how it might hang together (several options). Excuse the lack of proper glossing:

    I also started making my phoneme inventory! Here that is (click for bigger, I think):

    As you can see, I’m going for few vowels and a lot of consonants. I’m a bit concerned I might have too many consonants, but I also don’t wanna give up any, hah! I’m considering maybe making some (the affricates and/or the emphatics, maybe) strictly allophonic and maybe having some sort of mutation that happens to some sounds after some vowels but… at the same time I just really want a lot of consonants! So I’m having trouble deciding.

    I’m really enjoying working on this so far, though.

      1. They are, I love them! “Emphatics” for life, lol.

        And I’ve been wanting to use [ɢ] somewhere since I found out it was a thing, but it didn’t fit into Lǣš-enne. So yay.
