Lexember 2017

Post by gestaltist » Fri 01 Dec 2017, 19:18

Since nobody has started a thread for Lexember yet, let me. For those who don't know, the idea is to coin at least one new word every day of December. This thread is to be able to share what we have created and/or get motivated by others.

Let's start.
Spoiler:
I'll probably post two words tomorrow as its 7pm and I'm still at work...

Proto-M̟oḩaic:
ʕəjnawb "Grape vine"

Daa Sevǔihk:

I'll participate with Cissian. I try to do two words a day, because my December will be very busy and I still would like to coin about thirty new words.

Lexember 1st:

:con: Cissian


почотак m/inan - beginning, start, commencement, (rarely) origin
  • počótak /poˈtʃo.tak/ ; gen. singular: почотка počótka /poˈtʃo.tka/; nom. plural: почотки počótki /poˈtʃo.tki/
  • From почоцi (počóci) "to begin (perf.)", from Proto-Slavic *po- and *čęti "to begin", suffixed with *-ъkъ.
Дэцэмбр m/inan - December
  • Decémbr /deˈtsem.br̩/ ; gen. singular: Дэцэмбра Decémbra /deˈt͡sem.bra/; nom. plural: Дэцэмбри Decémbri /deˈt͡sem.bri/
  • From Latin december "December", replaced older Грудян (Hrúdjan) "December, November" from Proto-Slavic *gruda "heap, clod", suffixed with *-ьnъ.

Wäjāpu (Day 1):

Example:

Ning qyōrä re qmūcatang čiyō.
ning qyōrä=re qmūca-ta-ng=čiyō

I can kind of see in the dark.

I will be running with Nakarian. It's a temporary name for a language of a culture set in the conworld I mentioned a while ago. I'm sure I'll get around to writing something about them sometime in the future.

Lexember 1
I have added a copula to the language. It is marked by a floating high tone. Usually, verbs in Nakarian agree in person and number with the subject of the phrase. The copula is formed by adding a high tone to the first syllable of the agreement marker.

E.g., /-taŋ˨/ is the 1SG marker. So /taŋ˦/ means "I am".

Well, now I had to add a word for fire, too.

Lexember 2

so - fire, glow, desire from proto-Nakarian *ʂau̯r.
Spoiler:
Actually, this isn't the word for fire. It's the root meaning fire. Nakarian has over a dozen noun classes which double as the main derivational tool in the language. Only by adding class prefixes do you get actual well-formed words.

Following the temperature theme...
Proto-Takur *hénéo-, cold (adj.)
→ Tōkretū /anœ̂-/
→ U:ku:jéθétá: /hénuː-/
→ Dékrena /hené-/

Proto-Takur *hénéoéq, cold weather/incoming cold
→ U:ku:jéθétá: /hénuːt͡sˈá/ snow
→ Dékrena /héneja/ winter

And some additional developments from yesterday's root
Proto-Takur *dóñéeseté'o, little fire
→ Dékrena /téɲestʰeʔo/ hearth

Proto-Takur *dóñéesed(é), to burn
→ Tōkretū /táɲêːsìt/
→ Dékrena /téɲestehor/ to set on fire
→ Dékrena /téɲestekʰ/ to burn
→ U:ku:jéθétá: /t͡swéŋeːθet/ to burn
→ U:ku:jéθétá /t͡swéŋeːθet͡sé/ to set on fire
