The Dailies. November 9, 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?

  1. So in my copious amounts of reading, I have run across this wonderful resource: Grammars for everyone!

    And discovered that the idea that my proto-language already had noun class actually drastically simplifies the path to sex-based gender in Kofnea as adding animacy or starting from animacy and adding sex is a natlang thing. Joy!

    Also, did a better job of sorting out how my language stops add up, though I’m waffling over whether the Traders split off before or after the Five Worlds migration.

    Still looking at the necessity of sound changes in the vowel system going backwards with distaste because I like the sounds of things where they end up in Modern Nar, but Kofnea’s branch split off way back up there, so it’d be unreasonable to evolve some of those sounds the same way. So we’ll see how that plays out in practice. I actually don’t think of sound changes when I think of diachronic processes; I love grammaticalization and see sound changes as a slog that cannot be trusted to any amount of randomness either, so good luck to me.

    1. Ooh, I must remember to check out that link! It seems very interesting.

      I’m very, very bad at systematic sound changes myself. You are sure to make a better job of it than I am, I keep forgetting to be consistent and what I’ve permitted before.
