Re: What did you accomplish today?

I revamped my cases in Lortho to reduce the amount of syllables each ending had from two to one syllable; however, I kept one ending as two syllables to keep it unique. It was brought to my attention that it is not common for languages to have mutli-syllabic endings being that they are used so often...

Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

A Glimpse into the Discovery of Lortho I look at the development of Lortho and the culture surrounding it as a discovery . My view is that each word created is another step to cracking the code and the ultimate full translation of Lortho's lexicon and cultural significance. Case and point: I discov...

Cheers~ [:D] Wow! I have no idea how much visibility Lortho has been getting, but this is quite humbling! I am cur...

Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

For Lexember the 12th, I decided to publish a short story in my conlang Lortho . I came up with this story which is in the beginning stages of some sort of folklore.

Re: Imperative Mood - Lortho

My griuskant conlang is agglutinative, and all I did was pronoun + verb+imperativesuffix; so it works for all person/number, because all one needs to do is vary the pronoun while keeping the imperative suffix.

Re: Imperative Mood - Lortho

You could use a periphrastic construction for those, like English (“let's”) I have thought about that, but I wanted to keep it within the agglutinative/affix arena would it be the end of the world to have only one number/person-unmarked form for the imperative? you'd then be relying on the vocative...

Imperative Mood - Lortho

Hello fellow conlangers/glossopoets! I am having difficulty trying to expand the imperative mood for my language, Lortho . Currently, I have the basic idea where the vocative case is used in conjunction with the present stem, but it doesn't account for first or second person plural. I don't know if ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

After listening to the Conlanger Podcast on Possession, I was able to come up with a better reason to have two different types of genitive case endings: alienable vs. inalienable. Originally I had expressed - tho as an archaic form of the genitive; however, I could not find a suitable/realistic expl...
