Re: Case Survey

Evelēranēl has an accusative, possessive, and dative case. That's... it, really. It's prepositional. Genljøŋ has... lots of cases. Upwards of forty. But that's nothing compared to HyPry. It has about 75 or so - I'm adding them as I need them. They mostly take the forms of suffixes, derived from post...

Re: Capitalisation

HyPry capitalizes the first word in a sentence and all verbs, unless the verb is preceded by the general auxiliary a or its modifier form ta , in which case the capitalization shifts to them. Names are not capitalized, nor are proper nouns, although all words in a title will be capitalized. So: Co é...

Re: Things that are too common

I thought you were saying (Object)(Subject)Verb(Subject)(Object). That's what I couldn't get my mind around. That'd be an interesting word order [:)] Something to consider if you want to create a fissional language. Each noun is represented by two words; one before and one after the verb. la (V) na...

Re: Nonconcatenative morphology

Genljøŋ does something like it with verb conjugation, changing the last vowel to reflect the subject, although it uses suffixes as well. I really do like it as a feature in a language, but I haven't used it extensively. Unless you count Bų́ép'û̀dsếvề. It was intended to be an over-the-top form of th...

Re: Con-scripts (survey and random ideas)

Evelēranēl has an alphabet of its own. HyPry has a long history of writing systems, three of which are in use: two alphabets and the circular Orbital logographic system... and an ancient alpha-syllabary that they don't use much. The Orbital form is still in its raw, underdeveloped stage. Here's an e...

Re: Lexicon milestones

Evelēranēl, my first real conlang and, despite its n00blang tendencies, a personal favorite, has upwards of 1500 words - my lexicon also counts idioms and loanwords, so the number isn't definite.

Re: Constuff Quirk Thread

Evelēranēl has two sets of verb tenses depending on whether you are referring to your personal timeline or the universal one. It's all set for time-travel situations. Genløŋ uses nouns as verbs, and conjugates them through vowel shifts. Thus you have, from ris , death: Rïs - I am Death. Rïsï - I am ...
