Re: Conlang relay [relocated] (aka "The Cursed Relay")

Could someone get that Teyetáti lexicon back up please? Because I could really do with some more input from that language. I should probably also see about adding more Tari to the table. Yep .

Re: Conlang relay [relocated] (aka "The Cursed Relay")

Some provisional progress. Commentary is invited and welcomed. It seems that a bit over five years ago, Legolasean wrote a two-sentence article about the continent wherein he names the people "Zashai-kas" 'Sun people'. I've tried to keep reasonably close to that name (taking <z> as an affricate), co...

Just to make sure I have this right (because I'm having a little trouble making sure the colors are correct), roughly north-to-south is Cfa, Dfa, Dfb, Dfc, correct?

Go ahead! Since you're working on an almost entirely undescribed continent, there's nothing you really need to be aware of, apart from the settling date which you've already got right. Cool, thanks!

Would anybody mind if I started working on my "Antarctic" proposal again? I know I've let it fall to the wayside…

If I'm given the go-ahead, please let me know if there's any important timeline, historical, or cultural things I need to be aware of.

Re: Caber Logograms

While possession would seem (to me) to be an easily constructed extension of observation, I'm not sure the same argument for obligation would be as convincing.

Re: Caber Logograms

I'm thinking that one Caber cognitive metaphor would be SEEING IS POSSESSION . Then, from POSSESSION IS OBLIGATION , one could logically extend this to SEEING IS OBLIGATION . Maybe some verb tenses could be derived from 'see'—perhaps a future tense, or a desiderative. So you could get constructions ...

I'll go one further, that looks plausible to me just on its face. I'm pretty sure I've at least seen *j → h before.
