24.

Let's try something a slight bit more convoluted for Christmas, as this one is strictly speaking not between any of the three proto languages I've been using here.

Sei

jɨɨ, water n
c'eł, live at v

Early pre-Janti

jɨt'ełwa, minor local water spirit n

This name for a class of spirits is only found in the Janti branch of the Seic family but it's build on fully inherited Proto Sei material as < *jɨɨ-c'eł-wa, where the final suffix -wa is the agent noun suffix. Thus I have defined agent noun morphology for all of my three Lexember languages. A very useful morphological category it is too.

East Inaki

jətiθva, a spirit bound to a locality n

The East Inaki word jətiθva for local and typically minor spirits is a loan from the pre-Janti jɨt'ełwa. As the Inaki speakers first expanded far enough east to gain contact with early Janti, they became intensely aware of the huge amount of minor spirits that the Janti associated with various very specific water features. They borrowed the Janti term for these spirits, which eventually became to denote any spirit of a specific locality.

East Inaki is the common ancestor of the two easternmost branches of the Inaki family. These include Kišta as their descendant. This development stage wasn't terribly far removed from Proto Inaki proper, but it did include a newly gained dental fricative from the sound change s > θ. This provided a handy loaning substitute for the lateral fricative found in Seic words and in this case gives us the cluster -θv- that's both alien and unstable in the Inaki context.

Y²KS (Day 24):

sājarijī /ˈsaːd͡ʒarid͡ʒiː/ (n.) monk, nun, monastic, ascetic, saint, prophet
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true" + *íḳ- "person"
  • In search of the fundamental truth of reality, some people chose to live as ascetics
  • At times, these people withdraw to the wilderness to think, but at other times, they wander from town to town, doing good deeds and preaching in hopes that some of the local people will provide them with food and temporary shelter
  • Such people are prophets in the sense that they are thought to be in closer contact with the truth of reality than most people, not in the sense that they necessarily can see the future
  • Prophets are sometimes believed to be in touch with gods and/or spirits, but this is not always the case, and even when it is, they are not necessarily thought to be demigods or "chosen ones", although some are eventually deified by the communities they frequented
  • There are few real monasteries, as ascetics rarely live together, but the few that do exist are meant as places where novices may come for guidance
  • Most nomadic saints are independent, so to speak, but a few major monastic traditions exist, holding meetings at most once per year
  • Asceticism and monasticism are far more common among the Abil, as the Yaunite people, particularly the residents of Iskuyyand, tend to prefer a more academic than spiritual pursuit of truth
Derivations and Related Terms:
Spoiler:
sājirkiwayyi /ˈsaːd͡ʒirikiwajji/ (n.) monasticism, asceticism, sainthood, prophethood
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true" + *kìwa- "to start"
  • Refers to the practice in general, or to a particular saint's career
sājirmaru /ˈsaːd͡ʒirmaru/ (v.) to wander, to beg, to be a monastic, to be an ascetic, to be a saint, to be a prophet, to prophesy
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true" + *márʸ- "to go"
  • Used to describe the actions undertaken by monastics
sājarī /ˈsaːd͡ʒariː/ (adj.) so, true, correct, right
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true"
  • Can be used to describe something as fundamentally true, but can also be used more generally
sājarsulī /ˈsaːd͡ʒarsuliː/ (n.) truth, correctness, rightness
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true" + *θùlʸ- "face, quality"
  • Can refer to fundamental truth, an important philosophical and religious concept, but can also be used more generally
sājiršēdī /ˈsaːd͡ʒirʃeːdiː/ (adj.) fundamental, real, existing, essential, basic, elemental, universal
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true" + *θʸàğid- "day, era"
  • Specifically describes things that are fundamentally and universally true
  • More concerned with the world on a metaphysical level than as a physical space
sājiršētsulī /saːd͡ʒirˈʃeːtsuliː/ (n.) fundamentality, reality, existence, essence, basic, element, universality
  • From Proto-AY *śā́gar- "thus, so, true" + *θʸàğid- "day, era" + *θùlʸ- "face, quality"
  • Specifically refers to fundamental and universal truths
  • More concerned with the world on a metaphysical level than as a physical space
wāšēdī /ˈwaːʃeːdiː/ (n.) world, universe, cosmos, space, time
  • From Proto-AY *wàˤi- "one" + *θʸàğid- "day, era"
  • Can also be used as an adjective: "universal, cosmic, limitless, all-encompassing"
  • Refers to more than just the known, human world, but nevertheless refers to what is generally thought of as a more-or-less physical realm or space, theoretically accessible to people
wāšētsulī /waːˈʃeːtsuliː/ (n.) universality, limitlessness
  • From Proto-AY *wàˤi- "one" + *θʸàğid- "day, era" + *θùlʸ- "face, quality"
  • Refers to physical scope of the cosmos, rather than to things that are fundamentally true and universally applicable
šēdī /ˈʃeːdiː/ (n.) era, duration, time, time period, reign, sphere of influence, kingdom, domain, power, importance, force, luck, fate
  • From Proto-AY *θʸàğid- "day, era" 
  • Also used as an adjective: "durable, lasting, everlasting, permanent, eternal, immortal, unchanging, powerful, influential, important, fated"
  • Can refer to a wide variety of things, ranging from a particular moment in time or the natural place for something to all of history or a fundamental aspect of reality
  • This is a word that the speakers of the language and its descendants often consider "untranslatable"
šētsulī /ˈʃeːtsuliː/ (n.) endurance, lastingness, everlastingness, permanence, eternality, immortality, strength, importance, fate
  • From Proto-AY *θʸàğid- "day, era" + *θùlʸ- "face, quality"
  • Refers to a quality that supernatural beings, fundamentally real things, and people who leave their mark on the world have
Example:

Sājarijī fiš-šuḫāman tōmajaman fiš-šuḫēnd šēdind suryu.
/ˈsaːd͡ʒarid͡ʒiː fiʃʃuˈxaːman ˈtoːmad͡ʒaman fiʃʃuˈxeːnd ʃeːˈdind ˈsurju/

Theodish (Day 24):

blessen /ˈblɛsən/ (v.) to bless, to sanctify, to consecrate

  • Originally referred to marking things with blood before the introduction of Christianity
Derivations and Related Terms:
Spoiler:
bloed /ˈbloːd/ (n.) blood
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōþą
  • Because of Verner's law, the Proto-Germanic word had *þ in the singular and *d in the plural
  • Most dialects eventually adopted *d throughout the paradigm, but in some areas, *þ was preferred instead
  • Therefore, the word is also found as bloet /ˈbloːt/, with the same meaning
bleden /ˈbleːdən/ (v.) to bleed
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōþijaną
  • An intransitive verb
blodeg /ˈbloːdəj/ (adj.) bloody, bloodthirsty
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōþagaz
  • Can describe things as being similar to blood in some way or as being covered in blood
  • Can also be used as a general expletive
blodrode /ˈblɔdˌroːd/ (adj.) blood-red
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōþaraudaz
  • Can also be used as a noun referring to the color
blodyrnend /ˈblɔdˌɪrnənd/ (adj.) bleeding, hemorrhaging
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōþarinnandz
blodriss /ˈblɔdˌrɪs/ (n.) bruise
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōþarisaz
bloten /ˈbloːtən/ (v.) to offer, to sacrifice
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōtaną
  • Used to refer to an aspect of pre-Christian worship
  • Not used in any official context in Christian churches, but still sometimes found in poetry or in informal, hyperbolic speech
blote /ˈbloːt/ (n.) offering, sacrifice
  • From Proto-Germanic *blōtą
  • Used to refer to an aspect of pre-Christian worship
  • Not used in any official context in Christian churches, but still sometimes found in poetry or in informal, hyperbolic speech
Example:

Blesse dis blodeg sode, Fader, ig bidde dig.
/ˈblɛsə dɪs ˈbloːdəj soːd | ˈfaːdər | ɪj ˈbɪdə dɪj/
[ˈblɛz dɪz ˈbloːde ˈzoːd | ˈfaːdər | ɛj ˈbɪ‿dɛj]

Lexember 25th - Yélian

vendiæder [vənˈdɪ̯œːdəd̟] - star sign, zodiac sign

ETYMOLOGY: from vendó "spiritual sky" + iæder "symbol"

USAGE NOTE I: This word describes the Western and Chinese models of star signs after birth. This is unknown in Yélian culture, where the parents instead assign a brandevin ("birth deity") to their child at their 1st birthday. They can decide for themselves which one of the twelve dieties they want to assign their child to.

USAGE NOTE II: If you talk about zodiac signs, all of the signs are in animate gender. For example, if someone is Libra (ziger in Yélian), you use the animate gender instead of the inanimate one what you would expect normally when talking about an inanimate object like a scale.

Reo vendiæder but a'prenîyi, vaget æ'tat reo o'gimir but a'ziger. Barcai anei pi rogartúscurest?
[ˈɾe.ɔ̈ vənˈdɪ̯œːdəd̟ bʉt ɐpɾəˈniːɕi, ˈvaːxət əˈtat ˈɾeː.ɔ̈ ʔɔ̈ˈxiːmɨd̟ bʉt ɐˈɟiːxəd̟ | ˈbaɾkaɪ̯ ˈaːnɛɪ̯ pɨ ɾɔ̈gɐɾˌtusˈcuːɾəst↗︎]

25th Lexember

Boral

jonnovar zucarrað /ˌʒonoˈvaʀ zikaˈʀaθ/ [ˌʒonʊˈvɑː ˌzikɐˈʀah] candied butterflies
< first word from Old Boral ȝenhovar and similar forms, from Old Welsh gwenhwyfar "white spirit", possibly via an Old English form *ġenovare, though this is disputed. Equivalent to English names Guinevere, Jennifer. Second word the past participle of zucarrar "to sugar, to sweeten", from zucar "sugar", coming via Old Italian zuccharo from Arabic سُكَّر‎ (sukkar).

A type of sweet, shaped pastry spiced with cinnamon or nutmeg, traditionally in the form of butterflies. From early Borlish symbols of rebirth, associated originally with the winter solstice but now linked strongly to Christmas Day.

Scant noc y jonnovar zucarrað ancour – nos despardreu eç fam.
Don't bring out the candied butterflies yet – we'll ruin our appetites.

Y²KS (Day 25):

Cēnḥōśanōttilə /ˈt͡seːnħoːɬanoːttilə/ (n.) a spirit or type of spirit associated with the midwinter festival
  • From Old Abil Cainḥaûśanauttilɨ "Destroyer of Demons", from Proto-AY *carʸ- "between, apart" + *ḫámśʸa- “god” + *nà- “to fight” + *-uṭʸ- “agent”  
  • Followers of traditional Abil-Yaunite paganism celebrate Shanchasmajjin, the Feast of Death, on the winter solstice
  • After dark, the people of a town or neighborhood all light lamps, dress for the cold, and gather outside for a communal meal
  • In the morning, individual families remember loved ones who have passed away in the last year or so, but the holiday's main event serves as a lighthearted memorial service for the plants that die during the winter
  • Some parents tell their children stories of a spirit who comes around to pagan households on the day or night before the winter solstice, leaving gifts of food to help contribute to the following day's communal dinner
  • The spirit typically brings meats and pastries, and some communities will have someone dress as the spirit to help distribute food for the feast
  • The spirit is often depicted as a young woman dressed as a sailor or seafaring merchant carrying a brightly-shining lantern and a woven basket of wrapped food
  • She is frequently connected with the Goddess of the Woodlands in some way, and is sometimes believed to be the one who guides the souls of plans to the underworld in the winter and then back out again in spring
  • Therefore, she is commonly depicted as being crowned with a wreath of yew or holly, although some regions prefer the more extreme image of a woman with wooden skin and pine needles for hair
  • She is a benevolent spirit, thought to ward off evil and misfortune, although she is not portrayed as a jovial, entertaining figure
  • While delivering her gifts of food, the spirit silently greets anyone she comes across with a calm smile, appearing somewhat solemn yet peaceful
  • As her demeanor does not fit with the festive atmosphere of the main feast of Shanchasmajjin, she is always gone before the celebration begins, walking off in the direction of the sunrise on the winter solstice
  • Her name is derived from one variant of a common epithet for the prophet/founder of the new Abil religion: Ḥōśanōttilə /ħoːɬaˈnoːttilə/, from Old Abil Ḥaûśanauttilɨ "Fighter of Demons"
  • On the winter solstice, the Abil celebrate Gossargedilan, the Festival of Fire, which marks the beginning of a period of fasting from meat which lasts until the summer solstice
  • Abil families, especially more wealthy ones, are encouraged by their faith to give away any meat they have left over from before the winter solstice to their pagan friends and neighbors, and as most affluent Abil people living in non-Abil areas made their money as seafaring merchants, this is thought to explain why the spirit is believed to dress like a sailor and give away mostly meat
  • Gossargedilan commemorates the first death of the Abil prophet, which is thought to explain the spirit's general demeanor
Derivations and Related Terms:
Spoiler:
sēnī /ˈseːniː/ (n.) aunt
  • From Proto-AY *cʸáźiŋ- "aunt, grandmother"
  • Commonly used as a friendly form of address for a woman roughly belonging to the speaker's parents' generation
  • Refers to a woman who is older than the speaker's siblings but younger than the speaker's grandparents
  • In some descendants of the classical language, the beginning of the name of the spirit Cēnḥōśanōttilə was reinterpreted as meaning "aunt", as the /t͡s/ in Old Abil loanwords typically merged with /s/, and the epithet Ḥōśanōttilə became a common given name, even among pagans
Example:

Ḥaš ˤiyas sēnwēn lib-yitsadind šēdind fiš-šuḫāman šērmajaman fis-Cēnḥōśanōttōn bōtwa?

Theodish (Day 25):

Kirstmesse /ˈkɪrstməs/ (n.) Christmas
  • From Latin Christus + missa
  • Also found as Kirsttide /ˈkɪrstˌtiːd/, Kirsttime /ˈkɪrstˌtiːm/, Kirstnaght /ˈkɪrstˌnaft/, Kirstfeeste /ˈkɪrstˌfeːst/ or simply Kirst /ˈkɪrst/, all with approximately the same meaning, although the first two are more likely to refer to the Christmas season or the Twelve Days of Christmas, and the third may be used specifically for Christmas Eve

Movard

feitt Sgt. Estevan /ˈfai̯t st ɛtɛˈvan/ [ˈfæi̯stətəˈʋã] fn. Boxing Day / St Stephen's Day. MM fieistâ sainte Estevane, OM festa sanhte-Steuane "feast of St Stephen." Possibly a remnant of the Latin genitive (festum sānctī stephānī), or an unusual instance of a non-adpositional genitive.

eil avorproantepenultimat /ai̯ aˌvoːpʁoːˌantɛpɛˌniːtiˈma/ [ɨ̯əˌʋʊˑpʁuˑˈãtəpəˌniˑtiˈma] mn. A jocular term for Boxing Day; literally "the forepropreantepenultimate" of December (i.e. the 16th). por- and pro- (MM por, pro) are both variants of OM pór "for," VL por, L prō ~ per. antepenultimat borrowed from English antepenultimate or L antepaenultimus.



Cartaguinhisi

sanhtificaturi /ˌsaɲtifikaˈtuɾi/ mn. A form of address used for priests or other eclesiastical people. Formed regularly with the occupational suffix -aturi (L -ātōrem) from sanhtificáe; PRC sagntificare; borrowed from L sānctificāre "to consecrate;" literally "consecrator." Eastern Dialect sagncificaturî /saɲtʃifikaˈturiː/, sagn'fic'turî /saɲfikˈturiː/.


Standard

vostri sanhtificaturi, sun ninhi colhpati quesi offéndravi
/ˈvɔstri ˌsaɲtifikaˈtuɾi sun ˈniɲi kɔʎˈpati kɛsi ˌɔfˈfɛndɾavi/
VOSTRI SANHTIFIC-ATUR-I SUN NINHI COLHP-AT-I QUE-SI OFFEND-R-A-VI
2PL.POS consecrate-ONE-NOM, be.1SG very-M.NOM.SG regret-PPPL-M.NOM.SG that-if offend-PAST-1SG-2PL
"Your holiness, I am very sorry if I have offended you."

Eastern Dialect

vû sagn'fic'turî, sun mulhtû c'plhatû si 'ffend'ra m'vû
/ˈvuː saɲfikˈturiː sun ˈmuʎtuːk ˈpʎatuː sif ˈfendram vuː/
VÛ SAGN'FIC-'TUR-Î, SUN MULHT-Û C'PPLH-AT-Û SI 'FFEND-'R-A M'-VÛ
2PL.ACC consecrate-ONE-NOM, be.1SG very-M.NOM.SG regret-PPL-M.NOM.SG if offend-PAST-1SG 1SG.ACC-2PL.ACC

Spoiler:
The possessive also functions as a vocative for second-person pronouns.
ninhi comes from L nimiē "excessively," which has no other descendants in Romance languages.
colhpati "sorry" is the past participle of colhpáe, a verb derived from colhpa "a strike," from VL colpus.

The difference between the two dialects/registers is less than it looks; syncope plays a major rôle in Eastern.
