Thanks for the writeup. :) Sounds like a map with a timelapse of border changes for The World would be really cool to watch.

Glad to help. :) I love Ngolu BTW. It's the conlang spoken in a tube on an orbital station, right? Thanks so much. Yep, that's the one!

You're right. Honestly, I wasn't expecting anyone to read my gloss. [xD] Anyway, thanks to you, I noticed I forgot a clitic so I fixed the gloss now.

Re: Some Snippets from The World

I was thinking about one thing recently. Auntimoany feels like it's kinda your "Europe" or "England" from the way you describe it, but geographically, it is your China. I have two questions: 1) do you have any culture that is actually based on China or similar to China in The World? 2) how is your "...

Koren has two synthetic tenses: Non-Future and Future. Non-Future is zero-marked and Future has suffix -e.
Future is also used to express imperative.
Wouldn't that then be more of a realis-irrealis distinction rather than tense?

The gods didn't create us....

I decided to translate a short bit of Ismaic mythos. Perhaps someone else will find it interesting to also try. "The gods didn't create us. They revealed it to us themselves.

Re: Bear isn't brother to cow.

:con: Arka delt de aruuj e bak. bear COP.NEG younger_brother GEN cow There are two words for 'brother' in this language: alser (older brother) and aruuj (younger brother). Same in Īsmay. I find it interesting that you chose "younger brother" and I chose "older brother" for the same translation.
