The Dailies. October 1, 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. Kofnea-Kolos vocab-wise, we have:

    • agnshi – to bloom


    Now, as for grammatical stuff and how to log it stuff, for adjectives, we are now describing them as five classes:

    1. m-class, that is the base form of the adjective is the masculine form
    2. f-class, that is the base form of the adjective is the feminine form
    3. d-class, that is the base form of the adjective is the divine/natural form
    4. n-class, that is the base form of the adjective is the neuter form
    5. x-class, that is the base form of the adjective is appended to in all forms of gender agreement


    This is an important development for ease of logging the correct paradigmatic variation. If the base form is the divine/natural form, then the same paradigm is going to vary from if the base form is masculine, etc.

    And paradigms!

    • a-paradigm: -a, -i, -e, -r
    • e-paradigm: -e, -et, -es, -er
    • t-paradigm (uts.): -tre, -tri, -(t)los, -tr
    • d-paradigm (ish.): -dre, -dret, -dlos, -dre


    These are the three adjectival paradigms, the last of which really only sees use with negative adjectives (-tre generally means “without” or “-less”). I say three because t- and d- are just dialectical variations of the same paradigm. I believe I’m going to impute a t- version of the d- paradigm to some other dialect but haven’t really hammered down who has it.

    This should basically make it so I can stop writing out variations altogether and just write the base form of the adjective, its class, and its paradigm, and then I won’t have to wonder whether or not this is a word where a-paradigm substitutes a -∅ for -e.

    Though obvs. I’m gonna need to actually write out the paradigms per class, but that is a suitably reduced amount of effort.
