Re: Obscure etymologies

Other words are explicitly constructed by agglutination of root words or weaving (semi deterministic mixing of a few parent words phonemes ). That's...

Re: Settings for your conlangs?

Xerossu is intended to be promoted as the language spoken by the Ereissu-Nifh civilisation in my fictional universe. Ereissu-Nifh are a federation of several high technological species, which are probably the result of some synthetic biology works of another civilisation or their own ancestors, but ...

Re: Longest Word In Your Conlang

as xerossu have agglutinative rules to create new needed words, there may be pretty long words, but yet the longest word in my lexicon are : hbnāȑokotlaomāruk and satimexitlahuitli hbnāȑokotlaomāruk : big bird without claws satimexitlahuitli : having consciousness of some systemic error in sensory p...

Re: First Words for Your New Conlangs?

I created actual xerossu from keeping some rare words from precedent attempts I made long ago : kenore (Hi!) , xeross (communication protocol) that was already the language name of the previous versions and became Xeroßu / Xerossu (conveniant writing, but incorrect romanization) , kerer (smt that ki...

Re: Conlang with a Mayan-inspired script

I like it ! great work

I only find the glyph for "roots" to be a little confusing about the thing evocated, in total contrast with pretty every other logograms that appear pretty clear to me once the meaning is told a first time.

Re: Phonaesthetic archetypes for fantasy races

It's not something I'm interested in that much, but I thought it might be nice if I put out a few of my ideas about fantasy-lang phonologies.
