Re: Grammatical Sketch for Classical Sitr

It's apparently about progressive, not negative? yes, the negative thing in that paragraph is wrong. Did I understood correctly that the two conjugations only differ in the present marker? Are there other conjugations I don't think so, if there are any verbs that conjugate differently, they are pro...

What timeframe would you set Classical Sitr in? For orientation, you can use the table I posted in the general thread for the conworld [:)] maybe like 2000-3000 years before present Cool, if we assume the present day is around 2500 CE, that would be between between 500 BC and 500 AD; or, in the Dam...

I'm glad I could finally get around to reading this. I like what you've done so far.
If classical Sitr is old enough maybe we could use its scripts as a basis for later scripts?
maybe

I guess the script was itself inspired by older scripts though.

The Sitr people is a group of people that has a persian-/central asian-esque culture, they live on the west coast of the temperate to sub-arctic area of the continent. The Classical Sitr language is not the modern language, but the classical languag...

Great work on the map! :D Thank you so much for putting that peninsula in! Would it be possible to add a handful of small island specks to the south west of it? :)
feel free to add it (:

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I based my map proposal on an old map of mine:

The blue area is the ocean, the white and grey areas are landmasses, with the grey areas signifying the area of major mountain ranges and highlands.

I was going to have mixed but I'll consider making it more heavily post position.
That's a good idea about the DOM. Any suggestions?
definite direct objects receive a distinct marking, probably an adposition, but indefinite objects don't receive a marking different from nominatives

Re: Surprising cognates

Chinese 蜜 (pronounciation in Middle Chinese: /miɪt̚/) "honey", English mead and Russian медведь "bear"(and its cognates in other Slavic languages), all of them contain a part that is from Proto-Indo-European *médʰu (“mead, honey”). The Chinese word is an ancient borrowing from Tocharian, which is fr...

FrathWiki sounds like a good idea. We will name the project once we have the basics of a language or two.

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

A couple options come to mind: a thread (here in C&C) seems a practical solution for discussion and working out of details. Just name the thread after your project's name! An external wiki is an excellent idea for finished bits of lore! I'd like to recommend FrathWiki as it's well established and c...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I've never done one of these before so how does it work? Do we fill up a thread somewhere with our stuff? Do we use an external wiki to document things? we can use an external wiki to store things. also we need to decide the technological level and maybe the name of the world first. I suggest the t...
