The Dailies. November 19, 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?

  1. A few days ago now I coined a couple simple words in Firen and didn’t get around to posting them here, but better late than never:

    • kůst “problem”
    • sku “sand”

    kůst is in the inanimate class rather than the abstract one, though not for any well-considered reason. Words like it (such as vůssi, “an unpleasant surprise”, which is the most similar word I can find in my lexicon, zuffu, “an omen or portent”, and des, “a task, chore, or errand”) are overwhelmingly inanimate, even though, as intangible ideas, they “should” be abstract. Ultimately the decision of which class to place a word in just comes down to intuition, of course.

    I don’t have much of anything to say about sku, though. I just like the sound of it. It is a collective noun, of course.
