Re: CBB Conlang Relay IX

Re: Yay or Nay?

Fixed stress in Cissian, yay or nay? Either on the first syllable or the penultimate syllable. I like the current unpredictable stress but it's a lot of work to work out the individual stress pattern for every new word I create. For fixed primary stress, IIRC, penultimate is first choice, initial i...

Fairly awesome of you to have handled Atruozan in under 24 hours.
The documentation I received by DzôtaRedfang was pretty good. But I don't think I covered the previous meaning 100%. Let us patiently wait for the final result to see if I instead have completely fucked up.

Re: Grammuary 2018

Grammuary 18th In many Southern Yélian dialects, the use of the standard plural starts to decline. Instead, the people from the Southernmost Yélian states (Narfe und Gralák) will generally use the suffix -locan [or iòha in this dialect) to mark the plural. This suffix means "many" in Standard Yélian...
