The Dailies. August 23, 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. I’m finally typing up notes! So this was actually done… a bit ago but have an update.


    So for Mirishti, I noticed a bit of a pattern and wrote it up.

    Where adj. root > nominalized (coll.) > verbed:

    1. ókhlamed > khlamdé > okhlamdót / okhlamdét
    2. boakhéver > boakhvé > boakhvrót / boakhvrét
    3. náiager > naiagé > naiagrót / naiagrét
    4. boaséd > boasdé > boasdót / boasdét
    5. ekhléde > khledé > khledót / khledét

    That is, the nominalized form of an adjectival root is consonant-initial (loses any initial vowels), loses the last vowel before the last consonant, then adds the nominalizing vowel -é, which takes the stress.

    1. Oh, very neat!


      What is the distinction between the two different verb forms, like okhlamdót / okhlamdét? Wait, never mind, found the answer in an earlier post – it’s Class I vs Class II agreement, right?

      (By the way, I haven’t gotten post notifications for a while … I thought this place had gone all quiet again!)

      1. Yes! I’m very sorry about that. The notifications plugin is… not working right. Basically, I unwisely upgraded to a version I didn’t realize was going to just die ignobly and had the wrong version saved on backup.
