island

Fun Note: the Vuase word for island is ilahe (/iˈlaxe/) which comes from a redundant marking which literally means "island-land."

Lexember 15:


/ʔaguhɛ’nuzma/ v 1. to be passionate 2. to passionately crave or yearn for somebody or something

This verb comes from a deity of the /xiʔosaku/ pantheon, the main religion of the Bokisig people, which is split into two complementary branches which form the basis of the moiety system for Bokisig society; children are allowed to choose their branch upon reaching puberty, with the possibility of switching later one single time. A member of one branch can only marry a member of the other, and the choice is “locked in” upon marriage – or the decision to pursue a religious office. Which religious offices are available and the selection process for them depends on the branch. These offices encompass functions that would rather be considered in the realm of guilds or public offices in other systems, such as teaching, translating, science and public administration.

/ʔaguhɛ nuz/, which means “fickle lover (or friend)”, is a shape- and gender-switching god of passions and nightmares; in one branch, they are regarded as a positive creative as well as cleansing force, while in the other the focus lies on avoiding the influence of the fearsome creature. The connotations of that same word may thus differ between the two religious branches.

Lexember 15th - Yélian

cîyidal o'climar [kɨˈɕiːdɐl ɔ̈ˈkliːmɐd̟] - natural climate change
ʻareyal o'climar [ʔɐˈɾeːʃɐl ɔ̈ˈkliːmɐd̟] - anthropogenic climate change

Etymology: cîyidal/ʻareyal "change" + definite attributive article o' + climar "climate"

Usage notes: Yélian distinguishes between two types of change (and already did so prior to this Lexember). cîyidal means a natural, uninfluenced change, while ʻareyal means a forced, influenced change. The term cîyidal o'climar has been the usual term for climate change, but environmentalist lobby groups pushed the usage of ʻareyal o'climar as a neologism to emphasize the human nature of the current change. Since 2018, the term has found its way into most standard dictionaries of Yélian.

Pur iben sai on'ilvatan pun karasé fecun pulvoca cud Ɲ̇i 35, narnanen æ'areyal o'climar.
[pʉd̟ ˈiːbən saɪ̯ ɔ̈nˈilvɐtɐn pʉn kɐɾɐˈseː ˈɸeːkʉn pʉlˈvoːkɐ kʉd nɐˈkuːɾi ˌmiŋkɐˈtiːdɐ, nɐɾˈnaːnən əʔɐˈɾeːʃɐl ɔ̈ˈkliːmɐd̟]
for experience-1PLIN some DEF.GEN=day.PL in following with temperature over temperature_degree-ENUM 35, really-feel-1PLIN DEF.CONC=change DEF.GEN=climate
Since we have had multiple days in a row with more than 35 degrees, we can really feel the climate change.
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

Ah I've been forgetting about this:

Lih.

12th

félsis - ladle

13th

wéher (gen. uhrés) - cow

14th

hléitami - I dig

Arc.

15th

blitacúnos - confused, bewildered, baffled

(I had this word written down in my notebook as blicatúnos, with the c and t transposed. Not sure which I like better. Both good. :) )

16th Lexember

Boral

quemant /kweˈmant/ [kwɪˈman(t)] comfortable, cosy
< Present participle of obsolete verb quemar "to be comfortable, to be suitable", borrowed into Old Boral ca. 9C from Old English cƿēman "to please, to satisfy".

Cossy asseïr sull'ig caðer no sera scur quemant.
Surely sitting on the chair like that is uncomfortable.
/koˈsi asiˈjɪʀ siˌlaj kaˈðɛʀ no seˈʀa xɪʀ kweˈmant/
[kʊˈsi asɪˈjɪː sɪˌlaj kɐˈðɛː no sɪˈʀa xɪː kwɪˈman(t)]

Lexember 16th - Yélian

linvala [lɨnˈvaːlɐ] - to admire
cudlinvala [ˌkudlɨnˈvaːlɐ] - to admire

Etymology: cud "over, above" + lin "high, highly" + vala "to see"

USAGE NOTES: both words are mostly interchangable, but cudlinvala is predominantly used for persons and a little stronger, while linvala can be used for objects, animals, means of behavior and persons alike. The example sentence however shows that this is not a strict rule, more like a rule of thumb.

Vat nacu yirityerisatsbut. Brayé, narcudlinvalai tao nacazosár, dailevenain pi ivit dityanacvain.
[vɐt ˈnaːkʉ ɕɨɾɨt͡ʃəˈɾiːsɐt͡sbʉt | bɾɐˈʃeː, nɐɾˌkudlɨnˈvaːlaɪ̯ taʊ̯ ˌnaːkɐɟɔ̈ˈsad, daɪ̯ləˈʋeːnaɪ̯n pɨ ˈiːʋɨ‿dɨt͡ʃɐˈnakvaɪ̯n]
DEM speech PST-so-inspiring-COP.3SG.INAN | damn, really-admire-1SG 3SG.FEM.POSS rhetorics, COND-wish-COND.1SG that like_that.COND COND-POT-speak-COND.1SG
That speech was so inspiring. Oh man, I really admire her rhetorics, I wish I could speak like that.
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

In my defense, for forgetting Lexember 15th, my sleep schedule is so screwed up that it's basically the 15th still in me

Lexember 15

*wl̩ːm-e v to find, to discover, to uncover, to dig

:it-sa:maglioru nm bull, steer. Possibly from Latin malleolus

Lexember 16:

Idiom / phrase:

muaguma no.m’o.mɛ ʔudhe-ʔo pɛlma-mɛ
bow too.much stretch-CVB.CAUS.SS break-PFV
“Because the bow stretched too much, it broke.”

Used to convey frustration - this would be a bit of a calque from German “den Bogen überspannen” (with slightly different meaning) if German existed in the Damta conworld, but luckily it doesn’t :p

ʔe dasomhu sɛ daduma
DEM.PROX scythe NEG function
“This scythe does not work.”

muaguma no.m’o.mɛ ʔudhe-ʔo pɛlma-mɛ
bow too.much stretch-CVB.CAUS.SS break-PFV
“I am frustrated.”

The phrase has become so idiomatically frozen that it can even be used in a sequence of converbs, though the reason for the frustration then usually employs the converb for sequential events:

ʔe dasomhu sɛ daduma-kusmɛ-ʔe muaguma no.m’o.mɛ ʔudhe-ʔo pɛlma-mɛ
DEM.PROX scythe NEG function-CVB.SEQUENTIAL-DS bow too.much stretch-CVB.CAUS.SS break-PFV
This scythe does not work, then the bow stretched too much and therefore broke.”
=> “I am frustrated because this scythe doesn’t work”

Both /muaguma/ and /no.m’o.mɛ/ can even be left out as this has become a fixed expression.
