The Dailies. January 30, 2023
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?0

Speaking of that sequence, it ends up doubling ways of counting. They wouldn’t actually say a six-ten. They’d say a huntingbird ten and mean 60. I haven’t actually worked out the words for the sequence, but I do have the meanings, so I’ll get on that at some point soonish.
Separately, Lehwa words:
ETA: If forgot: he- is a noun prefix. kaiuk / kaihi are the adjectival versions.
Not quite following! Can you gloss aghourrar for me? Also which grammatical gender is it?
Aghourrar is the plural of aghourre (unit of ten) and glosses as “unit of hundred”, but just about literally means “tens.”
Ten is used in the singular when going through multiples of ten, with the plural indicating multiples of a hundred. Which seems unusual enough to me, I felt a need to make note of it, lest future-me thinks I made a mistake and changes it.
