I’m a bit behind, but I’ll catch up tomorrow or so. I’m trying to get the entries in my lexicon that are in progress finished so I can tell what I’m missing. There’s about sixty of them. Anyway, here’s a word derived from an entry I worked on today. Lexeme: kymiirary Gloss: to frighten, to scare, […]

I suppose I should give some quick background on my language. It’s called Ŋyjichɯn ( /ɱɪ.ˈdʒi.ʧɯŋ/ ) Because of its stress and alternation the pronunciation doesn’t match the spelling, although it’s predictable if a bit complicated. It’s a polysynthetic language with heavy noun incorporation, affixing, and reduplication. The default word order is SOV, but in practice the most … Continue reading “”

Lexeme: sai Gloss: a common tree with smooth speckled bark and large lobed leaves Irregularity: Static Noun Combination Form: sai Stress: IPA: Nyjichɯn … Continue reading “”

I’ve been working on my conlang a lot. I have a newer version of the tiddlywiki to upload, but since everything is tagged ‘wip’ I’m holding off. I also started a tiddlywiki lexicon instead of doing it in Excel, because it’s more useful for translations and notes. I’ll upload that as well at some point. … Continue reading “”

I’m working on Ŋyjichɯn again. I’d like to get it up to 500 words and get the tiddlywiki cleaned up enough that I could submit it to the Conlangery Podcast to be considered for the featured conlang. Since I’m currently obsessing about it, I’ve decided to do a Ŋyjichɯn word of the day for at least a while. Our […]

Mirrored from Shenanigans - Curiously Lydean.

Been working on a conlang that’s supposed to be a naming language for some of my comic characters (specifically Delia Troy Burton). I have an Hawaiian grammar from the 70s which I’m using as a model, because it’s the only grammar I have for an analytic language.

It’s called Ie.

At some point, I’ll probably upload my grammar like I did for Nyjichun. I’m currently doing it in HTML instead of in a TiddlyWiki. That may change or I may just make it more than one page at some point. I dunno.

Anyway, the point of this post was to share some words! It’s tonal and differentiates between aspirated and non-aspirated words, but for simplicity’s sake (and to keep from having to post the phonology) I’ll just give the romanticized form. The only note I’ll make is that /c/ is pronounced like /ch/ in English). No, I can’t pronounce most of it. See if you can pick out which words are compounds from other words! (Hint: not all the meanings are given here).
