Re: Yabushio: timeline

I'm really interested in this project. Were there any small clans that went along with the Satomi clan?

Re: Proto-Eurasian

I know I don't have to remind you, but please remember semantic drift is a thing! :)

I love the diachronics, I think looking at yours will help me understand how to do that better in my own conlangs. (I'm terrible at it.)

Keep going, it's looking great!

I love this. I really wanted to do a futurelang version of Catalan, but my diachronic skills are severely lacking.

Re: Conlang Conversation Thread

Kaljek alam jō lata. Faʼtan 18 (leñko) tola-ki. [kaɬ̠ʲt̠ʲɛk alam t̠ʲo lata | ɸaʔtʼan lɛn̠ʲkɔ tɔlakʲɪ] I got my hair cut. It cost 20 dollars. I'd convert prices to the Aksanji currency, but there's no Aksanji currency that I've created... Aksanji uses base 12, so 20 in decimal = 18 in duodecimal.

Re: Names

I think that most Ercun (Celtic) people would be given name based off of similar clan names, a patronymic or matronymic, then a descriptive name as they get older, then possibly a locative name based on where they were born, or when they were born. ex.: Comnert mach Bustovárí Derg Bríghoiv (with-str...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Might not develop the Celtic conlang any more right now, but I could use its quite large lexicon for borrowings and influence on this Saxon language. (as for the Romance influenced conlang, I think it should be something around France (maybe far enough south for Italian dialects).

Re: Yay or Nay?

A Germanic language derived from Old Saxon (Old Low German) but is heavily influenced by a local Celtic language?

A sister to that language but is influenced by Romance languages?

Rock on! I also thought the name was derived from neolatin, but lingualatīna makes a lot of sense too.

Re: The Conculture/Conpeople Opinions Thread

The early Ercunic peoples, including all sub-tribes, do not use a "sauce" (tomatoes did not exist in Europe at the time, and other kinds of vegetables weren't prepared in this way) as we think of it, but some food is served in a broth, especially if it's chicken broth. The modern Ercunic peoples eat...
