Re: Lapdeutsch

Dative Case Remnants -Similar to the accusative, a large number of time expressions take the dative cases. Those that due are those involving the prepositions an (on), in (in), send (for), & voor (ago), e.g: am Tweiden (on the second), im April (in April), send einem Jare (for a year), voor drei Ma...

Re: Lapdeutsch

Accusative Case Remnants As requested I'll start covering actual case usage [:D]. Out of the 3 outdated cases, the accusative is by far the least used and due to this it's probably associated with older texts more than the dative and genitive are for most speakers. Below are the remaining uses of t...

Re: Lapdeutsch

I figured I’d rush through nouns since it’s pretty simple grammar. I could move on next to either more declensions, or could discuss the different ways the various cases are still used in modern speech. Which would you guys be more interested in seeing now?

Some nouns may end in -e while others may not, but regardless the plural is always formed is with -en Singular: -(e) Plural: -en Sample Noun: Maid (Girl) Singula...

Re: Lapdeutsch

A Declension Nouns Nouns seemed like a good place to start with the grammar [:)]. All nouns were traditionally declined to 4 cases but nowadays aren't as regularly encountered outside of the nominative as they used to be. The genitive still sometimes used for possession and the dative plural is som...

Re: Lapdeutsch

Looking forward to more! What happens to the Germanic strong and weak adjective inflections? Traditionally adjectives had a 3-way distinction between strong, weak, and mixed in 4 cases with a variety of forms. These still remain in some expressions and grammatical constructs such as "tu rechter Tei...

Lapdeutsch

This is a language I mentioned a few days ago about making a post on. Lapdeutsch is a Germanic language spoken in parts of Germany and Netherlands. Its name refers not to any particular place but rather to the German word "Lappen" meaning rags as the language was traditionally viewed as an uneducate...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

No it's not. Good guess though. Funny enough, the descendant of that is one of the modern English cognates for the second element <ei>. It's the one I was trying g to lead GrandPiano to in his previous line of questions. I was thinking maybe it was a compound word derived from two different stages ...

You would think that the latter would come from the former, but apparently they’re unrelated.
Woah really? Where did you read about that?

[:D] Now I'm curious. "servant who is a buffalo"? "servant to buffalo"? "servant having to do with buffalo"? "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo"?

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Just realized something amazing that has led the perfect phono-semantic matching. Ởnh·Vú has the word 陪 (bõy), a French borrowing meaning servant, and the word 㺏 (cão), which is the native word for buffalo. Because of this I think it's obvious that the Ởnh·Vú word for cowboy has to be 㺏陪 (cão·bõy) o...

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

I do think that Wikipedia and Wiktionary are pretty good resources for Proto-Germanic, though. I've made an entire Germlang using just those two. It's pretty amazing how great of a resource they are for it. Speaking of proto-Germanic what is the origin of the -t in the neuter definite articles in I...
