Re: Lexember 2017

I've been sick for a few days, so I'm gonna post four. Also, I feel kinda like I'm cheeting because they're all borrowings and all the same root: сѫд /sõd/ "court (of law)" Neut. 1 from OCS сѫдъ "justice, judgement, court of law" сѫѕи /sõd͡zi/ "judge" Neut. 2 from OCS сѫдьи "judge" сѫѕиан /sõd͡zian/...

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

Not to say it wouldn't be helpful to know the approximate dates you're asking for, but you could probably borrow from both, like how English has borrowed from both Latin and French. Sorry, I’m thinking sometime around the 10th-11th Century. I do borrow from both but I’m having trouble with this one...

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

I’m asking because the Gotski were conquered by South Slavs by the 9th Century and they continued to be the ruling class until the 15th Century. The situation is meant to be similar to Norm...

Re: Government

There are many cultures and countries in my conworld, so I'm quite sure one can find all kinds of government systems. Though, most griuskant regions seem to prefer anarchy/ minarchy .

Re: I see you

This is actually the word for "hello" in some of my languages, and in others the word for hello is derived from what once meant "I see you". Translations of both meanings follow: :con: Poswa: Vabo!
