Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

btw, below is a list of the current lexicon of Classical Sitr: https://conworkshop.com/dictionary.php?L=XSO it is still far from complete yet though. I like it. I hope to borrow a few words for sure. Maybe "moushana" can be taken for a word for fortune, then wealth in Kojikeng. I'd need to figure o...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Yes I did want quite big changes as I tend to err on the conservative side of the SC spectrum due to not knowing much about them, so I'm usually wary of introducing any. Having just been working with a set of them recently I could see why! Yikes, so easy to make mistakes. I may invest the time in l...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

Update on "star" and also goddess. Again, I'm just doing a bunch of these to see what the inflection system of Txabao would look like should it survive the millenia. I'm getting faster at my phonological change rule set. “Star” Singular Nominative: kɾeʃ -> kʰeʃ -> kʰeh -> kʰa Accusative: kɾeʃʔun -> ...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

I'm going forward with the idea that this language belongs to the Txabao language family and I'm exploring the options. I definitely want the people that deliver Kojikeng to the modern world to run into a few other groups so the grammar will change and I'll have new words from other sources etc. I'l...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

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 Ah yes. My...

Nice work on that history brblue! I'm really glad you like the numbers Khemehekis! I'm going to rederive them forward again haha seeing that the glottal stop would be required in onset. I'm going to "send backwards" a few lexical items with possible root forms to you at some point and their current ...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Alright, these are the numbers I came up with. On the left is the original form and on the right is "modern" Kojikeng. Are these workable? 1. zip -> zeɸ -> zeh -> reh -> rḛ 2. mentu -> me:ndu -> me:ndi -> me:n -> men 3. ksˤao̯ʔi -> sˤo:ʔi -> sˤo:ʔe -> sõ:ʔe 4. tɾai̯ŋke -> tɾa:ŋke-> tɾa:ŋge -> tʰa:ŋe...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Yeah so, it turns out some of my previous word forms are not possible with the phonological pathway I've chosen so I've been trying to approximate them the best I can. It's been a good process though as some of the phonological changes in the second version don't make sense or won't ever occur due t...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I can tolerate elves and such but I'm really not keen on high magic at all. haha I agree that low magic or no magic worlds are way more fun. Maybe because it is easier to conceptualise the behaviour and don't need to suspend disbelief all the time that major factors of the world would be identical t...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

As for Nachtuil, I believe you mean "elk", not "elf". We're not writing Tolkien, are we? [B)] Yeah... hahah. We are not making ~that~ kind of conworld. :p I've taken a first attempt at deriving a phonoloy to get to Kojikeng but I'll likely change it. Stage 1: Inventory: /m n / /p t ts tˤ tʃ ʔ/ /b d...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

No problem for being quiet for a while. I suffer the same afflictions on my spare time. haha I love the idea of duck billed animals being either domesticated for food or as mounts so I'll offer no objections. I think the idea was in the south these animals would fill this role eventually and in the ...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Wouldn't more than 15 billion light-years mean it's in the future? I think it would just mean that it would take 15 billion light years for light to reach where we are given the current age and size of the universe. The observable universe has a current diameter of 46 billion light years but the bi...

Re: The Txabao language

That's awesome! And your descendant will be no more of a "phonological massacre" than English, Spanish, Greek, Russian, Farsi, or Hindi is a phonological massacre of PIE. I meant it a little tongue in cheek but I guess used the wrong emoticon :) It's been fun so far. Kojikeng's phonology will actua...

Could this be a proto-language for this project for an unknown family?
Yeah I definitely think so! :) I like the sound system!

Re: The Txabao language

Sandhi /m/ will morph into /n/ (which may mean one of /n/'s allophones) if the following phoneme is /p/ or /b/. Is this intended to be dissimilation or a typo? I like the language so far. I've been working on deriving a phonological progression from it as you know. I apologise for the resulting pho...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I've just been thinking a lot of how to derive the modern phonology from the ancient Txabao. The easier solution would of course be to just keep them as separate language families that for at least a time were in fairly close proximity so that lots of sharing and some areal effects occurring between...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Oh, that sounds so cool! I'd love the idea of a sort of Atlantisesque city in the oasis! Perhaps that tree will be named by the Txabao, or be named by some other people in the desert, and become a Wanderwort. (We've got to work on some Wanderwörter for plants, animals, and foodstuffs once we've got...
