The Dailies. November 10, 2019
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

So actually did these a week or so back but haven’t had much health/energy so only posting them now. For Anhouegessi:
Now, oddly enough, adjectives usually follow their nouns, so these rather older compounds seem to imply that once upon a time, adjectives preceded their nouns.
These terms also get at the original understanding of how we ended up with single-sexed, three-gendered dragons, though modern dragons acknowledge that they don’t have a good handle on where their traditions of their history diverge from the facts.
There are two original basic kinds of dragons, lesser and greater, and the entire biological phenomena of kanues and ausnos (kings and queens) emerged from the greater dragons. Greater dragons also were all pretty much kane, or tempered—neither hard nor soft. The lesser dragons had dimorphism between hard and soft and did not have tempereds until they mated into the greater dragons a lot.
That said, there’s a modern day association between softness and clannishness and territorialness and hardness that isn’t entirely borne out by reality, considering among the greater dragons, there were three great races—the red dragons, storm dragons, and black dragons—with the former two being clannish and the latter being territorial and not clannish at all, and even today, black dragons are the least clannish of all the dragon varieties and red dragons remain the most clannish, so while there is a legitimate correlation between gender and clannish nature, those features depend somewhat more on racial lineage than gender.
