The Dailies. June 9, 2022

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. Have named the new lang: Mírishti. I’m currently marking primary stress syllables with an acute, whether it ends up regular enough to drop it later, because it’s new and it’s easier for me. Now to words:

    1. ilh: definite particle (declensions to come)
    2. latá: n. love, romantic partner, significant other
    3. -vos, -voer: my
    4. boakhéver: adj. “hardcore”, in the sense of intensely or excessively committed, active, and disciplined in a movement, organization, or cause, e.g. the elite of the military are hardcore, see adjectival paradigm I — n. col. boakhvé, sgv. boakhvéri
    5. yáijho, pl. yáijhoa; (when suffixed. yáijha- ): n. master
    6. ókhlamed: adj. elite, see adjectival paradigm II — n. col. khlamdé, sgv. khlamdéri
    7. ísigo: n. shield

    Adj. Paradigm I

    Class I Agreement Class II Agreement
    singular boakhéver boakhével
    plural boakhéver boakhéves

    Adj. Paradigm II

    Class I Agreement Class II Agreement
    singular ókhlamed okhlamédel
    plural okhlaméder okhlamédes


    1. Very cool! I love how the words look. And the meanings are so intriguing! Plus you already have quite a bit of conjugation/inflection, too.

      Is there a semantic difference between the two noun classes, do you know? Or between the two adjectival paradigmata?
      Or is it more of a phonological thing? Or just Unclear?

      1. Thank you! I suspect there is a semantic difference between the classes, but since I’m not sure if there are only two or if they’re traditional gender, I’m just numbering them for now. There’s definitely a difference between the adjectives on what kind of root they are, though I suspect it may be phonological. I also am 100% sure that the khlamdé and boakhvé are nominalized adjectives and that the paradigms are all gonna play a little different if one were to adjectivalize a noun instead. And like latá is probably a nominalized verb. It’ll be interesting to carry on developing. Pretty sure the only native noun here is yaijho.
