Re: Damta: A collaborative world

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: Discussing basic vocabulary

I have made a reference list of basic vocabulary, which is an combination of Nerrière's Globish list , the Basic English combined wordlist of Simple English wikipedia(the Basic English combined wordlist is itself an extension of Ogden's Basic English list) and the Swadesh list. Which ended up giving...

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 ...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I'm not familiar with the concept. Does this means that in the writing systems numbers just use different symbols for larger units and place them in a group without concern to order ? If I = 1, V = 5, x=10, U = 100, then 27 could be XXVII OR IXXIV and 253 could be UUXXXXXIII OR XXIUUIIXXX? I'm just...

a proposal:

Damta did not have positional notation for numbers at all before the time equivalent to around 500 CE or something.
Would that affect the words for numbers in any way?
uncertain.

Re: False friends and other unfortunate coincidences

within English:

kingfish v.s. kingfisher

kingfish are fish; kingfishers are birds

it seems that kingfish are pretty large; while kingfishers are small birds, it is hard, if possible, for kingfishers to fish kingfish.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Sorry for double posting, I just made all words in the list for Classical Sitr, and Classical Sitr now has 1,800+ CWS entries. Also, I decided to not give Classical Sitr a verb for "to thank", but an adjective meaning "thankful" instead. Besides, I found that I already had some roots on the list, ju...

Ky, I like the sound of your numbers (well judging from my interpretation of the romanization anyway). Just to make sure I understand it right, would 21 be "nvsaam as" and 54 be "kaldal kal" ?
you are correct about 21, but for 54 you did it wrong, 54 would be kaldal athal, as 4 is athal
