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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    • uvik, n. “day”, in the sense of a calendar day, or one daytime and one nighttime.

    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.

  3. 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.
