I agree, that's an awesome avatar. It even shows the order of strokes!

When Nakarian and Núta reach 100, be sure to post in this thread. Then we can have some e-cake.

I have discovered a new sound rule in Old Albic, the "phangcva rule". In Old Albic, there is a dissimilation rule affecting aspirated stops which resembles Grassmann's Law in Greek: of two aspirated stops, the first loses the aspiration. So /thakh/ becomes /takh/. But there is an exception: if the first aspirate is in free position (i.e., immediately before a vowel) and the second in a cluster (followed by a consonant), the second one is deaspirated. This happened in the word phangcva 'hand; five' for which this rule is named: /phaŋkhwa/ > /phaŋkwa/. (The word is a cognate of PIE *penkwe 'five'.)
Also neat when you bump it up aganist Oscan fangva 'tongue', and it's Aspiration Metathesis from PIE *dn̥ǵʰwā > Pre-Oscan *dʰn̥ǵwā.

I've picked up work on Keṭ Lixuem again, and in addition to shaking up the vowel diacritics (as discussed on the discord), I've also started making stative verbs, as well as a new dynamic root kom [kɒm] (pre-KL *taʔw-), with a kind of general meaning of "multiple individuals moving in different directions", with the following forms when combined with different theme suffixes:

kom-mu (with cislocative): "to gather, come together"
kom-pa (with translocative): "to spread out, scatter, disperse"
kom-mil (with vocal) : "to speak disjointedly, talk gibberish"

kikomalamilkiselakpuexpuos.
[kekɒmalamelkesʲɤlakpɯəxpuɵsʲ]
<ik>kom-al-a-mil-ki-sel(a)k-puex-puos
<PRF>kom-REP-ANI-VOC-CAUS-CESS-NEC-1PAUC
Apparently we have to make them stop talking nonsense.

I finished the basics for verbs in my language, giving them three conjugation classes: strong-no conjugation requires aux verbs for all forms; weak-conjugates to witness/nonwitness and present/future, but requires an aux verb(was) for past; and irregular-conjugates for past, present, and future, but not to evidential.
All verbs use the past tense of do to create a perfect, and past tense of was/did contraction to make past perfect.
Weak:
nala(want)
nale(present nonwitness)
nalal(present witness)
nalo(future nonwitness)
nali(future witness)

'ayat-nale (past nonwitness)
'ayat-nalal(past witness)

nay-nalo(Future perfect)
nay-nale(present perfect)
'aynay-nale(past perfect)

I tweaked Núta diachronics somewhat by deciding that Proto-Núta had a vowel inventory of /a i u ə/ instead of the standard five-vowel system I had originally envisaged. The schwa then goes on to elide or become either of /e o/ in Middle Núta according to a number of factors, including the following:

a) it becomes *e word-finally
b) it elides as much as possible in pre-tonic syllables
c) it becomes *e before a syllable with *a *u *wV in nucleus
d) it becomes *o before a syllable with *e *i *jV in nucleus.

*o becomes u in modern Núta, and the last two rules are therefore the basis for a neat e/u alternation in the modern language.

There are further complicating factors such as the sequences **jə **wə **əi **əu and I’m hoping to post the full thing in the Núta blog when I’m done, but I just felt the need to share this first.

I made a new sentence in Onschen which shows off some of its morphology and religious perspective of the Jars:

I would really suggest you fiddle with those paragraphs a bit. Making the par-indent go away would make it look so much better. Here’s hoping you made a \dictentry command or something along those lines for easy editing (if you didn’t, that’s a habit you absolutely need to get into)

Pragkšpan has received a lot of love lately, many idiotic grammatical features have been added to this kitchen sink-lang. Lozkazmat won't receive new words until a new computer charger arrives.

Made my least favorite conlang family, Fojy, a little more interesting by exchanging the voiced stops out for pharyngealized voiceless ones, which helps because the parent language had also had pharyngealized nasals and now I can retain those as well. The full inventory of consonants gained is /pʕ mʕ tʕ nʕ/, and the consonants lost are /b d/. The alveolars will become dental ... and I may decide that they were dental all along ... therefore giving this language a new PoA not found in most of the other languages r elated to it. Thus, pharyngealization well still be lost, and that would leave only ythe labials ... so i will need to make a way to get rid of the phranygealizsation on the labials as well, which i will probably do differently in each daughter luggage. at least one will probably make t he *non*-phranygealized labials into the marked form, possibly rounded /pʷ mʷ/, since the language already has labiovelars.

I've started work on a modern version of Cuneiform, along with a cursive version of the modern version.

W00t!

My conlang Rozwi's main script is a cursive derivative of Old Persian Cuneiform.

Many of the characters in the script used in my conlang Yauchuan are originally Cuneiform ideographs reimagined thru a Chinese brushstroke lens.

I have uploaded many images of text in both langs. Unfortunately, they have been Photophucked by Photobucket. [}:(]

Phuckit! :mrred:

You can surely find images of them if you search google images using Lambuzhao + aveneca + cbb OR +zbb + zompist

I will once i have more done.


I've been translating a three page article into Lozkazmat, i chose something relatively simple to start with. I plan to translate two articles of this form every week.

Sadly my goal for creating 1000 words in a week has fell through, i lost my momentum when my computer charger broke(It took three days for my new one to arrive). Though i'll have 1000 within a few days.

We should all translate articles like those into our own conlangs, then collate them into a single publication, like in those Esperanto magazines.

With a tabloid-style front cover and click-bait headlines. OMG You wouldn't believe this conlanger's secret!
