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 dialectical sound change isn’t something I’ve been tracking in a perfectly organized fashion. Guilty me. But I gleaned a lot of info on Leshet’s dialect by just taking and finalizing the path of her hometown name:

    Kinunqa > Kinaang > Kiniang > Kinieng > Ginieng

    The stress on Kinaang is the only one where it’s on the last syllable, which always struck me as odd, since it’s supposed to be penultimate, but basically that’s how Leshet pronounced it before it corrected itself after the final -a was lost and Ginieng is stressed on the first syllable, which is the penultimate.

    Separately, due to knowing how the pronouns went, I also get to make paths for the way consonants moved around. It’s one of the few dialects to still have uvulars, but there was definitely some chain sound shifts on the consonants.
