Re: What did you accomplish today?

I created some new Tim Ar words and began work on a hieroglyphic script for them:

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I guess this was yesterday, technically, but I took the Tim Ar terms for the Six Great Thefts, worked them backwards to Proto-Tim Ar-O, and found the O reflexes:

Why is "continents" in quotes? Are these really just large islands, subcontinents or continent-sized political units?
The first five are continent-sized political/cultural/geographic units that constitute a supercontinent. The remaining three are their own separate entities.

Re: Another triconsonantal project

nice patterns (: do they have something similar to the construct state? No, at least not at present. My conlang Vrkhazhian also has a chaotizer morpheme though it's lexicalized instead of being a verb form. Vrkhazhian is like the type specimen of triconsonantal conlangs. I really should look into i...

Re: Another triconsonantal project

These are great ideas 💡! If it’s a consprachbund, maybe one of my WIP 3Cons could have some of these features? Would that be OK? Thank you!

This looks really interesting. I love the idea of a triconsonental sprachbund. Thank you! Yeah, I was kind of thinking, "what if triconsonantal morphology were an areal feature?".

What is the Chaos form of a verb? What does it mean? Is it shiny? [:P] The "chaos" form came about due to Conlang Wiki , which lists a verb-to-verb derivation described as "Scattering, chaosizing"; the examples given are "break > shatter", "fall > fall apart", and the Volapük prefix dä- . wow that'...
