The Dailies. March 24, 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?

  1. Kinda been sick and I should be bringing gifts of the Kofnea language, but nope, a little more Brín:

    • shánngun – n. 1. a history, not referring to all of history but the history of a particular story, people, event, etc.; 2. historian, a member of the semi-formalized group of those who learn the histories, and who preserve and pass them down in the form of songs and dances. Note: this institution is technically an inheritor of the temple “historian” and dancer tradition begun by one of the southernmost settlements of the True North, where Shinogánn and the founding families of Emárrel originated, though the shánngun of the Brín perform in the town plaza and are not attached to any other formalized body or temple
    • márre – n. 1. body of water, 2. a type of pearl harvested from a large-bodied carnivorous fish native to the lake of the Burín
    • Emárrel – n. the capital city of the Brín, lit. “beside the waters,” located to the east of a large lake fed by mountain rivers
    1. These are great. Having a single word for ‘body of water’ is way neat! Does shánngun come from Shinogánn?

      The capital city has a pretty name, I love the meaning!

      1. Thank you!

        So shi-no-gann actually means fairly literally “person who swallows the sun,” whereas shanngun seems to be entirely unrelated and its originating tradition is now called Hangein up north.

        I’m pretty sure shino actually came from jiyon (sun) nau (person) gam (to swallow), but both the j sound and the kh sound turned into sh in Brin.

        Sorry for all the missing accent marks for today.
