The Dailies. May 12, 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. A few words for Kofnea-Kolos (in varying formats, sorry):


    1. ginsituunnge – ish. adj. of or related to the kitchen, e.g. michm ginsituunnges “cooking utensils,” lit. “kitchen tools”
    2. ginsituung – ish. n. working kitchen where one cooks
    3. sitouangmaa – uts. n. kitchen, that is “where the cook is”
    4. sitouangntson – n. the activity of cooking or preparing food
    5. sitouangntse – adj. of or related to cooking and food prep
    6. saghia prtsonge (ish.), saghia prtsonea (uts.) – n. marriage brother, that is brother in law


    1. I have two questions!

      1. Which sound does /gh/ represent?

      2. Is there a class distinction in action between the two different terms for ‘kitchen’?

      1. 1. voiced velar fricative

        2. Dialect distinction! My sample Ishiam character comes from an area which is highly devoted to growing food and developing cuisine, and most homes have a couple of linked kitchens, one for cooking in, possibly one for washing and storing dishes, and one for serving out of. Most people north and east of that though, just have one main kitchen and use a different word for it.
