Languary Day Tomorrow: A start on conjugation

Okay!

Now I have to Drop the Drop!

Which means I had to figure out that “present continuous” tense existed.

I have nuba, which is the root for drop.

Without figuring out all of the conjugations at the moment, -othe is the ending for:

Continuous present tense, third person singular.

But the whispers are plural!

Okay, then -othed.

the -a on nuba goes away, and you get Nubothed ˈnəb ō ˌthed

We’re going VOS so:

nubothed ssussusser

Whispers Drop

Edit: I said VOS, I thought VOS, and then I wrote it SV. Sign. Fixed.

Languary Day 7: Plurals

If you’re following this, you may have noticed that I’m fascinated by plurals with grammatical number.

So in making a plural to make the words Whispers Drop, I decided to make several plural forms.

-er is the most commonly used, and indicates a generic plural.

-ara indicates part of a group, “those four students,” for instance.

-ore indicates all of a particular thing.

And here’s another thing to add in!

Whisper is ssussu.

To make this plural, we’ll repeat the first consonant (in this case the only consonant): ssussusser.

(Rule, courtest [personal profile] thnidu: “When pluralizing, if the word ends in a vowel copy the first consonant onto the end before adding the ending.”)

Languary Day 6: Whispers Drop

Okay, I want to name the language:

Whispers Drop

But this means I need to make:

1. Verb conjugation

2. pluralization

3. the words for whisper and drop

Okay, starting out easy:

ssussu, the first word in my gibberish, is Whisper.

nuba is going to be some form of drop

Okay, got that done. I’ll do the next part tomorrow!

runs off
