Prolly mutilated one or three things. So, it seems like after rœsa you keep a verb /a/, but mebbe not after zhosta? You prolly mentioned this somewhere in your Griuskant notes. I'll be more careful in future. Prolly didn't make the direct question into an indirect question properly. Still, be careful what you wish for [:P]

Lou silvé l' a deu djanrou liyet â sessou : lou masculé e llou femin-é.
[lu.siˈve la.dœˈʑɑ̃.ʁu liˈjɛt ʔɑˈsɛs.su | lu.ma.skyˈle ʔɛl.lu.fe.mŋ̩ˈe]
Silvish has two sex-based genders: masculine and feminine.

Jou pran l' accor masculé, alleu pr indiqué mon ettà coume tchitteyant dî-z Ettat Unit, jou m' appel « americant ».

I take masculine agreement, so to indicate my status as a U.S. national, I call myself "americant".

Le Corphishy l' a remarqué la resimblancha entre tchu meû e llu derryê meû dî jeu de mot anglé « It's American, not American't ».
[le… la.ʁe.mɑˈke la.ʁe.sɛ̃ˈblɑ̃ɲ̟.ɕə ʔɛ̃n.tʁɛt.tɕyˈmœː ʔɛl.ly.dɛʁ.ʁjɛˈmœː diˈʑø dəˈmɔt ʔɑ̃ˈgle …]
Corphishy pointed out the similarity between that word and the last word of the English-language pun "It's American, not American't".

Chetta fraza communica, dyin manyêya plejanta, lou « can-do spirit » dî peuplou americã e llou mo « americant » simbla d' la contraddire.
[ɕɛt.təˈfʁa.zə kɔ̃m.myˈni.kə | ˈdjɛ̃ŋ məˈɲɛː.jə pləˈʑɑ̃n.tə | lu … diˈpø.plu ʔa.me.ʁiˈkɑ ʔɛl.luˈmo ʔa.me.ʁiˈkɑ̃nt ˈsɛ̃m.blə dla.kɔ̃n.tʁɑˈdi.ʁə]
That sentence communicates jokingly the can-do spirit of the American people, and the word "americant" seems to contradict it.

Mé s' que jou pris l' accor femin-é — s' que jou fus finna, pr ezzampla — jou m' appelleyê « american-a », rezoûvan chou « problemou ».
[ˈme ske.ʑuˈpʁis lɑˈkɔʁ fe.mŋ̩ˈe | ske.ʑuˈfys ˈfɛ̃n.nə pʁɛˈzɑ̃m.plə | ʑu.mɑp.pɛl.ləˈjɛː ʔa.me.ʁiˈkɑ̃.ə | re.zuˈvɑ̃ŋ ɕu.pʁəˈble.mu]
But if I took feminine agreement — if I were a woman, for example — I would call myself "american-a", solving this "problem".

Fascinant ! Boral es part di famil galloromanç bien, parolað an isr ni Mar Norðesc. I no's parcanç stonnant, l'ig meðes som-nos d'eç lengag pareil inspirað, y resultað aun lour æsthetic si destinct.

Cal es l'origin de ty parol « coûhan » (Jo stim sy signfienç « west »)? Y part di boussol ni Boral son for de germanic pres : norð, ast, souð, west.


[faʃˈnan ‖ boˈʁal ɛs ˌpɑːt di faˈmɪl gaˌloʁəˈmant͡s bjɛn | ˌpaʁəˈlaːð‿an ˌizə ni ˌmɑː nɔɐ̯ˈðɛç ‖ i ˌnɔs pɑːˈkant͡s stoˈnan | laj meˌðɛs sɔnˌno dɛs lɛŋˈgɛj paˌʁɪl inspiˈʁaː | i ˌrezɪlˈtaːð‿ɔn lʊɐ̯ˌʁ‿ɛsθeˈtɪk dɛsˈtɪŋk ‖ ˌkal ɛs ˌloʁəˈʒɪnd ti paˌʁɔl kuˈhɑ̃ŋ | ʒo ˌstɪm si sajɱˈfjɛnt͡s wɛst ‖ i ˌpɑːt di buˈsɔl ni boˈʁal sɔɱˌfɔɐ̯d ʒɛɐ̯məˈnɪk pʁɛs | ˌnɔɐ̯θ ˌas ˌsuθ ˌwɛs]

Fascinating! Boral is also part of the Gallo-Romance family, spoken on an island in the North Sea. Perhaps it isn't surprising that even though we have the same inspiration our results have such distinct æsthetics.

What's the origin of "coûhan" (I imagine it means "west")? The compass directions in Boral are just borrowed from germanic: North, East, South, West.


(EDIT: Thanks for the kind words re Boral, Dormouse! ☺️)

The languages are pretty far from each other. Silvish is spoken in the Alps between France and Italy.

Lou laté « colloco ». Adjetya ensi lou franché « couchant », qui veu dire de cat qu' l' i-y à « coûhan ».
[lu.ləˈte … | ʔɑˈʑe.tjə ˈʔɛ̃n.si lu.fʁɑ̃ˈɕe … ki.vəˈdi.ʁə dəˈkɑt kliˈja kuˈhɑ̃ŋ]
Latin "colloco". Compare French "couchant", which sometimes means "west".

Lou ppant cardin-alou i ssont erettet, sâ é : nor, myajour, levan, coûhan.

The compass directions are inherited, except one: North, South, East, West.

Ah, that makes sense. I was wondering if Silvish marks number on its nouns, because I can't see any evidence of it. Since it lost pretty much all final sounds, Boral necessarily doesn't mark it any more.

I'd like to have it result from regular sound changes, but the current changes don't allow it.

Silvish sometimes marks number. There are a few strategies: add T, change the stressed vowel, double the initial consonant under the influence of a preceding plural word.

L'opportuntað dað, me falra y trilogy « Endeavour » commendar, scaut par Andy Colke. Sy prim episod a log (y magn part) avant un apocalyps oyon y ci detail son cos gradual revelað a mesur di romany.
Given the chance I'm gonna have to recommend the Endeavour trilogy, written by Andy Cooke. The first instalment takes place (mostly) before an apocalypse whose details are slowly revealed over the course of the novel.
