So I added another addition to Vrkhazhian weaponry; it's basically a katar fused to a small egg-shaped buckler.

Re: Imperative Mood - Lortho

My griuskant conlang is agglutinative, and all I did was pronoun + verb+imperativesuffix; so it works for all person/number, because all one needs to do is vary the pronoun while keeping the imperative suffix. I don't see why you can't just do this: fa+1PLpronoun, konphar; (Hey us, let's speak) ; O...

Re: Imperative Mood - Lortho

You could use a periphrastic construction for those, like English (“let's”) I have thought about that, but I wanted to keep it within the agglutinative/affix arena would it be the end of the world to have only one number/person-unmarked form for the imperative? you'd then be relying on the vocative...

Imperative Mood - Lortho

Hello fellow conlangers/glossopoets! I am having difficulty trying to expand the imperative mood for my language, Lortho . Currently, I have the basic idea where the vocative case is used in conjunction with the present stem, but it doesn't account for first or second person plural. I don't know if ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

After listening to the Conlanger Podcast on Possession, I was able to come up with a better reason to have two different types of genitive case endings: alienable vs. inalienable. Originally I had expressed - tho as an archaic form of the genitive; however, I could not find a suitable/realistic expl...

Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

So, as Dhamashi develops, I have been thinking about other cultures that might coexist on this world and one came to me. The language is called Dhakhsh [ðæxʃ] and the people who speak it call themselves Lœsheq [ˈlø.ʃəq]. They live on the continent Shardhelikh [ˈʃær.ðə.ˌlɯx] which is the continent Ka...

However, the character for "word" (it's the one after the first mid-dot) is the ugliest one I've yet made. Blech. Any ideas to improve it?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I just created a preliminary phonology of my next language, tentatively called Dhakhsh [ ðæxʃ ]:

Consonants:

/ p b t d k g q ɢ ʔ /
/ m n ɲ ŋ /
/ r ʀ /
/ f v θ ð s z ʃ ʒ x h /
/ j /
/ l /
/ t͡ʃ d͡ʒ /

Vowels:
/ i ɯ u /
/ o /
/ ə /
/ œ /
/ æ ɒ /

Quite the work in progress, but it's a start.

Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

Any linguistic variation or is this just a lingua franca of sorts? Right now it is the only language that I have for this world at the moment and that is because this specific part of the world is coming to me from Lortho as it develops. I want to create other languages as well, but for now it is t...
