Edit: As in does the cleanup process create that?

I doubt it, given that the thread titles are real, created by their real OP, and "opened" around proper dates, with 0 replies. The Guest from 1969 seems to be a glitch (or a Time-Lord).

Re: Daa Sevǔihk

The locative cases are the same for all genders. They come in two types, the plain and the honorific. The honorific cases are used for Palaces, Shrines, Hnaula (a Hnau is a place declared clean of evil spirits by priests, that many believe have healing properties) and Monasteries. However, a King ma...

Re: Daa Sevǔihk

I just came here to look if Shemtov, the master of nasal consonants, has again issued a language with 10+ nasal consonants and I have not been disappointed. I actually haven't created a language with 10+ nasals in a while. Proto-M̟oḩaic, Southeast Lumubuhudåg and Karèwaho, all have six, which is th...

Re: Daa Sevǔihk

A note on the name: Sevǔihk was the title taken by the first King of Kings, the unifier of the Sevǔihk Archipelago, and the name means something like "Noble one" or "Honorable one". As a Masculine name, Sevǔihk is a masculine noun, even though it refers to a place, which are normally neuter. Daa is ...

Re: M̟oḩaic Language Family Scratchpad

Pronouns: I unabashdly stole the nominative personal pronouns from Hebrew, though they inflect very differently. The personal pronouns, when used in the locative cases, mean "at" "to" or "from" "X's location at the time of speaking." and also can be used as demonstratives (see later in post), but th...

Valency Part 2: The causative is the suffix -rəʔ put between the stem and the person/number/tense suffix. ʒˤɨɦrəʔas "You will feed" Causative verbs are treated as Ditransitives, so in the past the the suffix is rɨʔ: ʒˤɨɦrɨʔt͡ʃaʃ "you have fed" The Intransitiver: This suffix, which acts like the caus...

Valency Operations Part 1: Proto-M̟oḩaic was rich in Valency changing operations. Verbalazation: Nouns can be turned into verbs by the suffix -aʒ, if the noun ends in a consonant and ʔaʒ, if it ends in a vowel: ðˤaħ "sun" ðˤaħaʒ "To dawn" t'abˤɨ "wife" t'abˤɨʔaʒ "to get married" Nominalazation: This...

The current background color for forum posts isn't brighter than say, Facebook or Wikipedia. With all due respect, FB has that dark blue theme at the top, as opposed to the sky-blue the current CBB has, which works better contrast-wise.
