Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Woo! That's a delightful phrase - I especially love the metathesis I assume went on. [:D]

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Does <cuubra> descend from cucurbita "gourd", and does the phrase mean like "squash" or "pumpkin"?

Is <cuubra> related to "culpable"?
[cross]
Does it contain an <l> at all in the Latin?

Oh, ok! [:D] My bad also for not realising that word was polysemous.
Assuming the "orange" sense is what's meant, hmmmm...
Did <cuubra> begin with <cu/cū> in its Latin ancestor (assuming it has done)?

Ooh, is the second word from Latin <armeniaca>?
[tick]
Hmm, so is the full phrase translatable as "apricot X?" Is <cuubra> a food (or drink)?

Re: Carpetanian (Ibero-Romance conlang)

Very nice introduction! I don't know much about Ibero-Romance myself, being more concerned with Gallo-Romance, so I reckon I'll enjoy following this and finding out a bit more about it. I especially like the combination of /ka ga > tɕ dʑ/ with /w > v/ (and of course I'm a sucker for both uvular r an...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Ah, thank you! That's a great word; I actually can't think of a good equivalent in English. Once I realized that the second part of the word might be "lust", terms like "thrill-seeker" and "adrenaline junkie" came to mind, but those refer to people, not the feeling itself. I guess it's like Wanderl...

Is the French word luxure? If so, does perigllussour refer to the "lust for danger" that some people have?
Wow! [:D]
Absolutely correct; in my mind I was thinking of that exact adrenaline-junkie "desire for danger".
Well done!

Does lussour have a cognate in French?
Yes, an switch the same basic meaning, although in French the word was borrowed directly from Latin, while in Boral lussour is a direct descendant.

Is it "danger, peril"? I have a feeling there's more to it, but I figured I'd ask just to be sure.
[:D] "Danger, peril" is indeed the meaning of the first component of the word, but there is more to it.
