Lexember 1, 2019
Welcome to the Lexember Challenge!
Every year, conlangers can take the opportunity for the month of December to challenge ourselves to add a new word to our conlang’s lexicon.
What word have you coined today? Any cultural or associated worldbuilding notes? Tell us about your inspiration!2

ingno: to avoid, be averse/allergic to.
Ingnoko dūmono dugo efdō nobādipdi: My father is allergic to cats.
Ofpobo kābin; ingnobon dumo. My head hurts, I’ll avoid the sun.
I might try to keep up with ConWorkshop’s themes but who knows about that. I didn’t today.
I’m doing Dab Vi Suxi Kidap today, I might alternate between it and Firen. Possibly even some Jafren (that musical logical divine language I was doing) if I’m feeling adventurous, but it’s not really at the point where I can feel confident that the “phonology” will stay the same moving forward so coining a lot more words might be wasted effort.
I haven’t touched this language since last December, whoops. Then again, I haven’t done that much conlanging in general this year. In case you don’t recall, DVSK is a simple isolating language originally started as a three-person collaboration, then became a 4-person collaboration, and then the other people dropped out of once the grammar was 90% complete, leaving just me and a silent Discord server about a year and a half ago, though it was very quiet and slow for at least the 6 months prior to that so it’s basically been two years.
Hopefully I’ll be able to keep up some of the momentum I get from Lexember through next year.
You and me both! On not conlanging much.
Good word, tho. 🙂
I like the sound of it, uvik, and the distinction of what kind of day. Do you have other “day” words?
I almost forgot to make my word last night but remembered at the last minute. I’m working with Lǣš-enne this year.
Day 1 word(s):
Aze = yes
Za = yes, yeah (bit more colloquial than above)
Tše (tʃe) = no
I’m already doubting the yes-words. Somehow that z just doesn’t sit right with me, but we’ll see.
I do like them and how they use similar sounds but sound snappy enough to be used all the time.
