Re: Саха Тыла үөрэн! Learn Sakha!

As promised in my last post of yesteryear, I present the next lesson on the Sakha language about the ablative case. A major difference with Sakha compared to other Turkic languages such as Turkish and Crimean Tatar, is that the ablative is not used to convey the meaning of the comparative. In Sakha,...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Is there a grammatical mood that implies "should" such as in English: "I think you should go", or "you should conduct yourself in a good manner" ? A single word in English, like "should", could serve many different purposes in different context. Sometimes, "should" can be used as a form polite requ...

Re: Саха Тыла үөрэн! Learn Sakha!

Don't worry about responses just yet!
Once I've covered a bit more in Sakha, such as possessives and tenses, then I will set an easy translation challenge. :)

Next lesson will be the Ablative Case.

Re: Саха Тыла үөрэн! Learn Sakha!

Lesson 5: Dative/Locative Cases In most Turkic languages, distinction is made between the Dative and Locative cases, but in Sakha, the function of both cases have been morphed into one case. One can usually make the distinction in sentences such as the ones below: Мин күөл гэ бардым I lake DAT go F...

Re: Саха Тыла үөрэн! Learn Sakha!

I'm so clever. It should have been э not e. <üören> is where Turkish <öğren> comes from. The word for house, I believe is a Mongolian borrowing as it's <gyie> дьиэҥ = Your House <gyieng> ҥэ = locative case бин = I am = I am in your house! So is there a four-way allomorphy? ... Nope! In fact there's ...

Hey Ambrisio! Correct again as always! Ааҥл = English (borrowed from Russian английский?) тыла = language (nom. or acc.) -ҕа = locative case suffix (like Estonian -es)? Yep! with Ааҥл, it's likely its a borrowing. the fact that it doesn't end in a vowel makes it suspicious. тыла is language! and -ҕа...
