The Dailies. September 16, 2021
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

vrhoskuetre – unkillable, generally possessed of some sort of regenerative, self-healing, or self-protective quality which prevents death from injury, illness, or attack
dntekuetre – undying, generally referring to those who do not grow decrepit or die of natural causes after some passage of time
fiakhnar – obs. clans
feahne – clans
So a handful of things here: unkillable is distinct from undying, though some can be both (this is rare except among the gods). Also rhotics and nasals are syllabic and can be used in place of vowels. Fiakhnar is from the -nar language and feahne is what it turned into for the war clans. Oh, and on all of these, stress is penultimate.
Love syllabic rhotics! Syllabic nasals seem a bit trickier to me but doable. The fiakhnar->feahne transition is so cool! Very tantalizing worldbuilding glimpses in the meanings of unkillable and undying? (So I gather those called ‘unkillable’ still age at normal rates?)
To be honest, I find syllabic rhotics harder to pronounce. 🙂
Yeah, the unkillable typically age at roughly the same rate or sometimes a bit slower due to less general wear and tear on the body but not like they’ve just stopped aging at some point.
