I quite like the aesthetic you've achieved here. Kind of a Khmer meets Hebrew lovechild feel to me, even if that wasn't what you were going for. Sally forth!

Indeed.
And it also has the look and feel of Tocharian/Yuezhi script as well.

I second the forth-sallying, and ¡Soho! even [:D]

How interesting. I never researched Tocharian, but now that I have I can see where you drew that conclusion.

Nor ever have I, but that's our Lambu for you, sprinkling a little cinnamon sugar about the place...

A few members of the conlanging community on FB got together and started a "passport" exchange. Each participant creates a passport in their respective language and then all of the passports are sent to one person. The recipient of the passports "stamps" each passport, then sends all of them to the next participant and so on. This is the info page of my passport (my photo is in the original):

Very nice! I hope you'll share the version with all the stamps as well! I'm sure it will look very cool.

Please do share the results here! I also bet a game like that would be interesting to play here at CBB. I know vampireshark and maybe a couple others here have actual in-world passports.

Lamona
  • Flora
    1. Kansapune (Trees)
      • Beru
        1. Introduction

          The beru is a deciduous tree found commonly throughout Lamona.
        2. Description

          The beru tree is a round tree which can reach heights of up to 15 to 20 m and the trunk a circumference of about 8 m. Though not as large as the neilanu, it is one of the most reliable and abundant trees for woodworking. The overall shape of the tree is round and the lower branches are great for climbing or relaxing. The roots are flat which allows these trees to withstand extreme high winds. The seeds of the tree are nuts encased in a hard shell and grow in bunches (similar to grapes). The nuts are extremely toxic to humans if ingested; however, they are harmless to most animals such as the khonami* and the thumu*.

          * These two animals have recently been discovered living among the beru trees and have yet to be thoroughly documented.

I just recently discovered a word I was not expecting. In fact, I have no idea how this correlates to the culture or if it belongs to a cult within.

thartero [tʰaɾ ·ˈtɛɾo] v. communicate telepathically

There is also an agentive noun which comes from this verb:

motharteri, -u [ˌmo · tʰaɾ ·ˈtɛɾi] n. masc, -fem telepath

This is the first bona fide compound verb I've discovered thus far, which can be broken down as such:

tharu [ˈtʰa · ɾu] n. fem mind, psyche, ego and tero [ˈtɛ · ɾo] v. communicate, convey

Based on my initial assumptions, this could be associated with moshtharu (an enlightened person), but at the same time, somehow not. There is no mention of who could be a motharteri from the limited information I could gather. I am hoping that more information will surface to help understand this.

A lovely word!

Question: does it háve to correlate to the culture or a cult for L to have a word for something? I mean, English has the word "telepathy" but humans aren't telepathic.
I am hoping that more information will surface to help understand this.
Will probably happen when you least expect it to! In any event, I look forward to learning more. When more presents itself!
