The Dailies. October 2, 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. So on Kofnea-Kolos, like very, very¬†Kolos generation and not older, we’ve got some interesting developments on the verb front with pronominal endings popping up for the absolutive argument of intransitive verbs.

    Example sentences meaning the same thing:

    • ou yagueshi-nihaenn nihn – I (give) love (to) you (intentionally)
    • yagueshini-chahaenni – I (give) love (toward) you (intentionally)

     

    We’ve previously mentioned the hey, let’s just detransitivize via allative verb agreement, but that finally appended pronoun is kind of an obvious development with all those¬†n sounds bunched up together. So starts with 1st person pronouns and sort of starts grabbing other pronouns as long as they flow well and can be easily differentiated. Not sure if this is going to end up being used as verb agreement in any cases, as most of my examples, it seems to really just replace the freestanding pronoun, since it’s a contraction more than “agreement.”
