I have added about 70 words to my germanic conlangs lexicon.
It now has a total of 260 words, a rather small number still.

I'm kinda stuck on how to go on from now. PIE downlink is fully in and produced meaningful Proto-Hellenic words in a Arcado-Cypriot dialect. I need diachronic changes, and I can't think of any.

Diversed how "until" is translated into Yélian. There are no words in Yélian that are both prepositions and conjunctions. na is the preposition, and nabetál (coined with betál, "then") is the conjunction.

Well, I finally got around to creating a tense and aspect system for Xosyo, as well as some notes for possible sound changes for if I decide to go towards a fusional morphology.

One example is the infix -na- for the progressive aspect merging with -ke, the negative suffix into -nge- which combines the progressive aspect with the negative.

poyek means "to eat", so pongeyek means "am/is not eating."

I did manage to separate the noun system of my conlang into five fairly-neat classes (or "declensions" if you must). Unfortunately there's the precarious situation of the devi-type long-i-stem nouns and whether or not they are reconstructable to PIE (and not an Indo-Iranian innovation) and whether or not I should include. So far I have created no nouns of this type. [:S]

I have 14 glyphs so far in my Onschen syllabary. Still going to need 326 more.

Not bad, although that sounds like a big engineering...

Maybe you can consider to make something similar to the dakuten of Japanese kanas to reduce the amount of glyphs that need to be made?

I realized that, despite it being a language with phonemic tone, I hadn't given Project Jade any minimal pairs differentiated by just tone, so I decided to change that.

pçeıv /pʕ̞ʷeβ˥/ (n.) goat, sheep, caprid

pçev /pʕ̞ʷeβ˧/ (n.) center, middle, core

Which gives us:

ľâ (daı) pçeıv
/ʟ̝a̰˧ da˥ pʕ̞ʷeβ˥/
leg of caprid
mutton/lamb shank (Lit. "caprid's leg")

ľâ (daı) pçev
/ʟ̝a̰˧ da˥ pʕ̞ʷeβ˧/
leg of center
center leg (Colloq. "penis")

Because why not?

Also, I'd forgotten how absolutely hideous Project Jade's orthography is, but to some degree it can't be helped, and I personally feel it was worse in the past. Behold, my ugly child.

Also, i have translated a couple sentences into my germanic conlang.
And last i have been working on learning german again.

There's nothing more dangerous than melted cheese, which is one reason I tend to stay away from pizza.

Yes. This is in the accomplishment thread because yes.

I would have no means of justifying them. Because the possible syllables would exist before the development of the syllabary.

Am working on a myth of the origin of the Sixteen Winds. And also, coincidentally, the origin of the two basic kinds of besoms.

I had an 11-hour delay on my flight from Hong Kong to Shanghai last night/this morning, so I made lists of all the possible rhymes* (nucleus+coda) that start in ı ıı o oo in Híí.
I refuse to use the spelling rime.

This led to several discoveries:
- Glottal stop + resonant clusters such as ’n ’w ’ł are permitted, but I have no idea still whether resonant + glottal stop clusters such as n’ w’ ł’ (phonetically realised as glottalised resonants) are permitted underlyingly or whether they are all the result of vowel elision. There is a noun óón’e berries that suggests the former, though I could get away with an elided /o/ which would yield the singulative oonó’no rather than the preferred óón’no.
- hs hł can occur after long oo while ss łł cannot occur after long ıı. See here for what I'm talking about.

The actual lists are in the spoiler:
