Re: A Collaborative Stone-Age Conlang

Also for 6. if you want some inflections on verbs, what would the categories be? I was thinking a bit of TAM and some person-marking. For number seven, you suggested pro-drop. I was thinking that perhaps for a parent-child register, there could be explicit person-marking on the verb. And for the ad...

Re: A Collaborative Stone-Age Conlang

well I am mainly here to give ideas.

Also for 6. if you want some inflections on verbs, what would the categories be?

And for 14, yeah maybe the "-ty" affix should be at least etymologically related to "ten", but you decide what to do.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I guess the area for Sitr speaking people is similar to West Europe and North Europe, and many parts of the area can be pretty forested in their natural states. @Nachtuil

The south might be drier and could be similar to South Europe and the coastal area of North Africa.

Re: A Collaborative Stone-Age Conlang

hello I want to make some proposals for the grammar: 1. SOV as the basic word order 2. postpositions instead of prepositions 3. the nonexistence of nominal cases 4. adjectives are nouns essentially meaning "someone/something that is...", thus adjectives modifying nouns are actually appositions meani...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

thanks ><

I have reformed the Sitr script and made two types of notational systems for writing numbers: the alphabetic system and the positional system. The alphabetic system works in a manner similar to roman numerals and are the older notational system in the Sitr script.

Just started a page about something related to Classical Sitr, Likepeg People(the ethnic group speaking Sitr languages) and Kompalia, and have made a page about their religion. Most Likepeg People(or Likepegs) follow Paarism, a dualistic religion that features struggles between two gods, anti-idolat...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Theoretically every wiki on fandom is open to everyone, so you don't need specific rights to edit article.

But that means we might need guards keeping an eye on potential trolls everytime, as they can occasionally appear.

I put many of my things about Classical Sitr on CWS.

The Classical Sitr word moushana is an adverb mainly used in situations similar to English "happen to V" and "by chance"

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Sitr peoples traditionally did not have a national flag, and there are no laws about the national flag so far, and they used something similar to a Mongolian-Turkic tug/sulde for military banners in the past. A flag consisting of solely orange is the de facto national flag since the time of the 5th ...
