Working out what parts of Nyango derive directly from Classical Chinese, and what comes from Old and Middle Japanese once they reach the archipelago.

Vrkhahian and Onschen now have a cursive script, known as Oñako or the Sealbone Script.

I'm too lazy to IPA right now.

Very nicely done!

This is aesthetically pleasing and extremely attractive! Can we see a shortish text of some kind?

In a mass of vocabulary building for time words and celestial bodies, I've ended up creating my longest lexical term yet.

ra'nii neliyeliye - planet < moving star
I like the sound of it.

Which bit means what?

ra' is a clitic pronoun, which has many uses, but in this instance marks the verb as a derivational addition to the noun
nii is move or go
ne- marks a singular specific noun (star is collective when unmarked)
liye is shine or bright
liyeliye is star

Nice!

Why is liyeliye reduplicated? Or rather what's the meaning of the reduplication?

Right at this moment I’m trying to find out if a certain system of case-endings and postpositions and prepositions is logically or mathematically possible. Want me to let you know how it turns out?
Sure! it sounds quite intriguing [:)]

Wrote my first word in my ridiculous script and probably-going-nowhere language. Which, honestly, is fine. I'm just glad to get the wheels turning again and remembering the things I have forgotten in the lull between forays unto this strange terra firma we call conlanging.

Did you do this on Fonstruct? Looks a lot like what I tried to do years ago (and didn't suceed).

No, but I suppose I could have... in theory.

I made a very very impressive sentence in Learran, based on a translation in the Discord server with a Latin gloss

Secreţi me ën infărmatu por mulţe ore. Ew (si) vaţen deja destrăcarmă, fjors fïrvie
sēcrētī mē habent īnfirmātum pro multās hōrās. Et-huc1 sic ???2-quene dēbeat destruicāre3-mihi forsit fieri-volea4
[seˈkre.t͡si me ɨn infərˈmatu poːr ˈmul.t͡se ˈo.re ew (si) ˈva.t͡sen ˈde.jə des.trəˈcaːr.mə fjors fɨrˈvi.e]


1 huc, or possibly hoc, is scatter variously throughout Learran, in a quite erratic manner. This is one of those places. Et-huc is usually an emphatic 'and' and typically separate clauses, not phrases, which et usually does alone
2 unknown origin - (well, I know the origin, you don't)
3 variant of destrucāre (Romanian does this for adstruo > astruicare > astruca)
4 used to form a conditional tense

I decided to remove the Emphatic series from Vrkhazhian since I no longer think they fit with the character of Vrkhazhian.

I made a chart showing - in order - the Korean script & the IPA for each sign, then the IPA for Italian, then the IPA for Latin American & European Spanish.

I'm not 100% sure why I did all that; I think my original idea was to see what patterns I could observe & then use those patterns to expand the Hangeul(sp) writing system to cover Italian and Spanish as well.

I started looking at some Learran words, and I decided that we need more cedilles. There's now 5 different "cedillated" letters. <ç ģ ş ţ z̧>. The purpose is not to represent new sounds, but to reduce the ugliness of certain letters, where etymologically the word looks weird. Like ţoarţe > çoarţe from CŌRTEM

I just finished writing nearly 4000 words about my most recent foray into a historical reconstruction of Vuase, so-called Project Garnet. It took me like 3 days and I'm shilling it out because I worked really hard on it and I would like to hear feedback.

A related word has an unknown etymology in Romanian, and obviously that presents problems. So I decided on an etymology, but obviously, if I revealed the etymology I had chosen, the etymology wouldn't be unknown anymore?
