Updated the verb section of my grammar and added a separate section for transitivity, clearing up some things and fixing some discrepancies between how I wanted the language to work and how it actually turned out to work (again :P )

Personally, I'd use "heat-machine", vanivaili (from 'vani' heat + 'vaili' tool/machine derivation suffix)
Though I'm sure there are more creative possibilities here.

Well, I hardly use dryers except sometimes for sheets (never have used them for clothes) so I didn't think of it. "heat-machine for clothes" could be a word for that, vanivaili nuhe ejotamatiti

I guess I am just stuck in my midwestern US mindset here. In Wisconsin, that solution will only really work for you something like 2.5 to 4 months of the year, requiring an alternate solution for the other 2/3rd of the year.

Not just Wisconsin. There's a similar chance of success with outdoor drying here in the north of England.

My own accomplishment today is that I've posted an overview of Old Lemohai-Letsuri on my blog. This was the immediate ancestor of the modern Lemohai and Letsuri languages. The real world model for this is the way Galician-Portuguese split ino Galician and Portuguese in late medieval/early modern times.

With that and the timeline I did last month, I'm starting to get some real, historical depth to a conlang for the first time ever.

How in hell did people survive in Wisconsin and Northern England before dryers were invented? I guess they didn't wash their clothes outside of summer? [;)]

I thought that's what fireplaces were for - drying clothes & cooking, both indoors.

Yup, that's how it was at our house back in the '60s. There were also more stay-at-home housewives in those days, so amongst many other jobs they would try drying clothes outdoors then whip them in quick at a sign of rain and hang them on a clothes horse in front of the fire. I remember my mother doing that and getting us kids to help if we were around.

I have a drying rack that I put my clothes on, after a night they are ready to wear. I only started using the dryer for the sheets because I forgot to bring a second set of them from home (currently in a dorm) and so couldn't leave them to dry overnight. My parents don't even have one at home, when I came here I saw one for the first time in my life :P

My mother still does that, actually. I had no idea it was so old-fashioned. Though we usually have our rack in the basement, rather than in front of a fireplace.

Anyway, as for my accomplishment, I translated the A-Team intro.

Inspired by some European languages, I decided to have two different ways of forming the perfect stem for my verbs after the restructuring of the verbs of Shonkasika.

Most verbs will form their perfect by affixing -pe to the stem:
ruvat, ruvapet I love, I have loved.

Verbs of motion, inchoative verbs, and verbs in the middle and passive voice will affix -ke to the stem:
zat, zaket I go, I have gone.

His first work consisted of fragments from the minor Greek poets, with notes (Elegiaca Graeca, 1759); and in 1763 he published a fine edition of the inscriptions among the Arundel marbles, Marmora Oxoniensia, with a Latin translation, and a number of suggestions for supplying the lacunae.

:lat: Latin (SCA2 input)
Suum primárium óperam consístit de fragméntum de ípsum poétam gráecum minórem, cum nótam et in 1763 ípse públicat únam editiónem de īnscriptiónem en ípsum mármorum Arundel, cum translatiónem latínum et únum suggestiónem númerum pro plénare lacunae

(I haven't included Arabic loans at this point. This is roughly when Arabic begins to enter heavily into the language)

(I haven't included the effects of pharyngealization, or some minor vowel changes. I'm not sure what cum should become. I'm floating co, cu, cum, and con. Similarly, I'm unsure of et's realization. It will be elided in some areas. Mainly, behind vowels. Should it be elided behind unu?)

I adjusted my perfect suffixes by adding a vowel to the front, giving me -ipe (class I) and -uke (class II). This is so that I could get some interesting vowel changes for my perfect stems.

stem vowel, class I perfect, class II perfect
-a, -aipe, -auke
-ai, -aipe, -auke
-e, -eipe, -öke
-i, -yepe/iepe, -üke
-o, -oipe, -ouke
-oi, -oipe, -ouke
-u, -üpe, -woke/uoke


The i-stems have palatalization of the previous consonant in the perfect form:

katit, katsepet I work, I have worked

I finally wrote down Silvish sound changes. There's still a lot of fine tuning to do, but I can at last evolve new words without worrying I've forgotten something or that I got the changes in the wrong order.

Some days ago I had the brilliant idea of inflecting a noun based on which way you look at it. This became part of Nnn Heeel, and it'd probably be put into other languages at some point as well.
