Lexember 4, 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. Same language, Kofnea:

    1. tsud – seven
    2. vnk – eight
    3. dmge – nine
    4. agh – ten
    5. hesa – adj. masc. bloody, of blood
    6. gunget – adj. fem. iron-strong, made of iron
  2. Today I did terms for parents (w gender neutral ones coming but I kinda need to arbitrarily decide if I want these to be old terms or more modern inventions etc).
    Anyway, 3 variants, roughly corresponding to the “vibe” of the English ones:
    Top = more formal but still used by some adults, mid = informal, used by adults and older kids, bottom = used primarily by younger kids.

    Mother – avaane /aʋɑ:ne/
    Mom – ave /aʋe/ or abe /abe/
    Mommy – ve-ve /ʋe-ʋe/ or bebe /bebe/

    B variants are especially common for younger kids who can’t pronunce /ʋ/, but some retain it into the mid variant.

    Father – onoone /ɔno:ne/
    Dad – one /ɔne/
    Daddy – ne-ne /ne-ne/
