Lexember 14, 2022

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. And today’s words are basically just nominal versions of known adjectives:

    1. gunga, masc. n. iron (gungaiï is the feminized version used in names)
    2. nkaha, masc. n. mountain
    3. yesh, div. n. sea


    Technically, these are both Adan generation, so might be different by a bit in Kolos (story’s present day).

      1. Yes!

        The War Clans have four grammatical genders / noun classes at this point, which are basically masculine, feminine, divine/natural, and neuter, with a predictable penchant for this to be more grammatical and less semantic over time. Feminization and masculinization of names and use of personal pronouns are currently the only real instances of semantic gender taking precedence over grammatical.
