Re: What did you accomplish today?

I decided to sit down and figure out ways to derive nouns from adjectives in Pazmat. As of now I have one method, for adjectives derived with the common suffix . This goes back to historical *-ē, so I decided to simply bump that up an ablaut grade, with creates the diphthong -ay-, to which the normal -ar stem suffix -ar/ō is formed.

To give an example: juq- "to burn" > juqō "a burn" > juqrī- "painful" > juqrayyō "pain, torture, difficulty".

The result is a normal -ar stem noun (though I may use other noun suffixes as well, for added variety). Here is juqrayō's paradigm:
Spoiler:
juqrayō
juqrayyōya
juqrayyaraym
juqrayyōva
juqrayyōmi
juqrayyōsam
juqrayyōsit

juqrayyōvo
juqrayyarvē
juqrayyarīm
juqrayyarvē
juqrayyarmau
juqrayyarsaum
juqrayyarsaut

juqrayyarā
juqraṣṣrāya
juqraṣṣrāyīm
juqraṣṣrāva
juqraṣṣrāmi
juqraṣṣrāsam
juqraṣṣrāsit

juqrayōyeṣṣ
juqraṣrīyya
juqraṣrīyyīm
juqraṣrīṣṣva
juqraṣrīṣṣmi
juqraṣrīṣṣam
juqraṣrīṣṣit
Looks quite arabic, doesn't it? But with it's own unique flair too. I really love the way Pazmat looks. It's just so beautiful. I especially like how compact this is; juqrayyō- is almost as short as juqō (underlyingly juqar) itself!

As for the other kinds of nouns, I'm thinking of having normal -ar stem nouns have the ability to derive other nouns from increasing the -ar- suffix's grade to overlong, creating -au-, which then collapses to -aw-, though these use -at for their suffix; for another example: ot- "to give" > ātō "gift" > ātawat "reward". This has some nice variation in the paradigms as well; the DEF.SG.NOM is ātawatā [a:.ta.wa.ta:] but the DEF.SG.ACC is ātautāya [a:.taw.ta:.ja].

...This post could practically be a whole damn post in the Pazmat thread. I really am talking to myself here, but I have 3 and a half hours till my next class begins so I might as well ramble here.

I have the full declensions of my adjectives:
dabna / dūbnūm
dbūna / dabnūl
dbūnē / dabnīn

toḵlek / tōḵlakīya
toḵleka / tōḵlakyal
toḵlekē / tōḵlakyēn

ʾīhrōda / ʾīhrōdīya
ʾīhrōda / ʾīhrōdyal
ʾīhrōdē / ʾ īhrōdyēn

ʾīfmanab / ʾīfmīneb
ʾīfmanba / ʾīfmīnbal
ʾīfmanbē / ʾīfmīnbēn

I also created a new proto-root and many verb roots:
√zr - related to stretching, pulling
√ḅzr - to span
√yzr - to stuff into
√gzr - to stretch
√pzr - to journey
√šzr - to cross
√zlr - to reach
√zrt - be pregnant
√zrw - to eavesdrop
√zzr - to adapt
√zrm - to be long
√zrf - to pull
√zrq - to tempt
√zqr - to drag
√ṟzr - to trudge

It does look quite Arabic, mainly on account of those q's, yy's and 's, especially if one is used to an Arabic transcription using the latter. However, the Sanskrit heritage comes through even more strongly in my opinion.

It goes without saying that above all else it looks like Pazmat, and yes, it's beautiful. [:)]

Yes, beautiful Pazmat is beautiful.
I added yet more roots to Vrkhazhian, and compiled them into a Journal article on ConWorkshop:
http://conworkshop.info/view_article.ph ... 2ce0b5223a

I organized the biliteral roots by Vrkhazhian Abjad order, and each tricon root within that is also organized by said order.

Yes, I'd say that Pazmat is a mixture of Arabic and Sanskrit. Sometimes the Sanskrit influence is very strong like this thing I just posted in the Translations forum: Nūdhrēmnāva naraśva, dṛk śraṣrāsam nūdhrēmēneṣṣ iźdatīyyīm woḥīm madhēyyaṣṣi.

The arabic influence is more subtle; things like /q/ and the voiced fricatives. And the uvular trill represented as <ḥ>.

Not exactly today, but i have been fleshing out interesting infinitive usage in Proto-Tjivnjïs and Expanding Proto-Gigxkpoyan lexicon.

And yeah, everyone agrees Pazmat is beautiful.

Well duh. Pazmat 1 was just really bad in general. Hence why I scrapped nearly everything about it.

In two years you'll say the same thing about Pazmat 2, and you will truly understand what it means to grow as an artist.

I added yet another case to my language; the vocative. The vocative affix is "saʾ or "sa-".

Saʾīkanē saʾīfmanbē!
O beautiful Ikane!

I decided against it.
There is also the distributive case:

Šarhaz, šarṉaj, lav šarẕat jīṉrebam...
Each man, woman and child must be strong... (in these hard times)

Yep. The only reason there is a uvular nasal in Japanese phonology is that the speakers sleep on futons. :mrgreen:

The placement of the word "waist" is suspiciously crotchward...

It's leaving room for the Vrkhazhian word, either way, I didn't draw it.

I decided to kill off the Canoman conculture in my conworld, but not the Canomans as a conspecies.
Rather, they will be domestic dogs to my chinchilla conculture, descending from earthly wolf-dogs.
Edit: The Germanic languages that would have been used by them will be used by the chinchilla conpeople ceplacing them.
Also planned: a Greeklang and a Slavlang, maybe a Celtlang.

You mean you drew upon your cosmic conworlding powers to rewrite the course of the entire Canoman race.
