Thanks Davush. Sure you can use it. It's not like Nakarian is patented or something. [;)]

Lexember 19 - Nakarian
Spoiler:
Continuing the theme. You probably noticed ta- is the class prefix mostly used for plants. Here, we'll have the class prefix used as a root and reduplicated for a collective meaning.

Slowly catching up, although I realise I have made very few verbs. I used to think verbs were the fun ones to create as well...

táha
'plow' (from *ta:ʔa)

vahralur
'park with lots of trees' (as opposed to hitsallur)

mŭra
'fruit'

vahmŭra
'tree fruit' (maybe replaced mŭra due to synonymy)

tséra
'tree' (maybe a more canopy-like tree, as opposed to vahra)


táhĭsh tséra

the Tahish tree (a type of tree common in Saraqlás)

Day 19

ivas /iˈβas/ - (n. human) daughter

itan /iˈtan/ - (n. human) son

Spoiler:
These terms were probably be used for "sister's daughter" and "brother's son" as well, but I still need to decide how families worked in this culture.

This year's december appears to plot against me doing much conlanging, but I've still managed to come up with a couple of new words for Ndok Aisô, so here's a massive catch-up post. Most of the word meanings are inspired in some way by other people's Lexember posts here, on the ZBB, or on the Conlang Mailing List:

1) ristêd (v.) [C-II] 'have bad luck, have circumstances conspire against you, be thwarted' < Ndak Ta risten 'lose (habitually)'

2) miskeu (v.) [C-III] 'blame, accuse' < NT miskwi 'blame'

3) ndêbuteu (v.) [C-I] 'forgive, pardon' < NT ndimu ta 'mercy-DYNAMIC'

4) moiboi (v.erg) [C-V] 'sleep' < NT maubai 'not active'

5) kedeu (v.erg) [B-I] 'be ready, be prepared, anticipate' < NT kweda 'ready'

6) tsateuna (v.) [B-VI] 'propose, suggest, recommend' ← Tlaliolz tsateonna 'recommend' (borrowed)

7) esteleu (v.) [A-I] 'burn; be emotionally agitated' < NT estela 'burn'
7a) estelteu (v.) [A-I] 'burn, ignite, set on fire; anger, upset' < NT estela ta 'burn-DYNAMIC'

8) gets (adv.) 'likely' < NT gets 'likely'

9) goit (adj.) 'easy, simple, trivial, boring' < NT gaut 'dull'

10) gêheu (adj.) 'hard, solid, sturdy, durable' < NT gingko 'hard'

11) wêg (adj.) 'damp' < NT wing 'wet'

12) mbefêleu (n.) 'raindrop' < NT mber mpêlo 'tear of rain'

13) goise (n.) 'snowflake' < NT bwai aise 'star of snow'

14) wêbloi (n.) 'house, home' < NT wimlau 'live-place'

15) tixeu (n.) 'door, gate' < NT tiri 'door, gate'

16) gop'eu (n.) 'crowd (of people), herd (of animals), ensemble (of things); any large group' < NT gomba 'people; the public'

17) raug (n.) 'countryside, open landscape (anything that's neither human settlement, forest, or mountains)' < NT raung 'fertile plains'

18) sob (v.erg) [B-II] 'drink' < NT sab 'drink'

19) ihix (v.) [A-II] 'whisper, murmur' < NT idgir 'whisper'

20) kóbôxeu (n.) 'language' < NT komwa 'tongue'
