Lexember 4th - Nakarian

ɾɛh˨ - "(that one) there" - distal demonstrative pronoun. It comes from the root *res meaning "place" which conflated with the root *ta̤i̯s (personal pronoun for "lower" animate beings like children and animals) creating Noun Class 5 referring to both animals and terms of time and space in modern Nakarian.

ɾɤhso - main square, market, agora (semantic shift from the original meaning of "place of fire" which came to mean the village bonfire, and then by extension - the main square of any settlement.) This is Class 5 from "so" - fire. Please note that typically, Class 7 is used for expanses/places, and Class 5 is used for "terms of time and space" such as "daytime" or "foot (as measurement)". However, in some cases the original meaning of "place" was preserved in nouns of Class 5, and this is one such example.

Lowland, fertile plains
Qáshar
Gāshar

The word is related to the toponym Qashrus, which is Qutrus’ sister-province possibly from Proto-Qutrussic *k’a:ʃar

I don’t know if I want such transparent etymologies though.

Heh, clearly. I reused pretty much the same example sentence that I had for "moon", and it looks like I missed something while I copying and pasting.

Dang, I need to catch up! As last year, my used conlang will be :con: Yélian. I'd love to participate with all my five languages, but I guess that would flood the board so I'll do that offscreen (and maybe publish it in the end)

Lexember 1st

maicupalitín [maɪ̯kʉpɐlɨˈtiːn] - programming language

From maicut - program + palitín - language

Lexember 2nd

yesé [ʃəˈseː] - youth

Portmanteau word from yeʻal - young and the status suffix -sé

Lexember 3rd

veras [ˈveːɾɐʃ] - blocked, in the way

Derived from the verb vera - to block + adjectivizer -s

Lexember 4th

púcvena [ˈpukvənɐ] - to insert, to enter

This lexeme has already existed, but so far it only had the meaning "to fill in"

Lexember 5th

arpǽr [ɐɾˈpœd̟] - board

Portemontau word form arpul - flat object and abár - tree
Heaven and Earth, but I feel the color of the cake when you keep the Victoria.
I had a mantra on the moss and I had to go to bed.


Oh, and there is a [ɕ] in my name!

I've realized I enjoy creating toponyms and endo/exonyms more than general vocabulary because of the layers of etymology, folk-etymology, and so on. So my words today are mostly from that.

'The White Mount' (referring to the northernmost province which has the highest mountain range)
Shirilzúr
Eshīryōr


From shiril 'white' and zúr 'mountain'. I don't know whether the sisterlang will use its own word, or just borrow from Qutrussan.

Also:
qúllur / gūduor 'East' possibly from Proto-Qutrussic roots *k'u:t (dawn?) and *loro (place), possibly related to 'Qutrus'.

Also:
Desert (loaned from a non-Qutrussic lang)
Stias

6:

Lavender
Vallar
Wagħlar

from *walʕar

Orange
Phélŭs
Heilas

borrowed from *feilɤʂ

Suffix -nóya / -noi meaning 'cultivator/farmer of', probably from the root *nauj- 'to cultivate' (even though such a form should really mean 'cultivation'...)
Vallarnóya, Wagħlarnoi - Lavender farmer
Phélŭsnóya, Heilasnoi - Orange tree cultivator
