Conlang all year round – DisMayCourse in August

Turns out I missed conlanging, and as I’ve missed many months of “365 Conlang thingies beyond #Lexember,” I decided in the remains of August, I would cycle through the first 8 months twice of conlang-exercises twice.

And bog help me, it’s Dis-May-course!:

Write a speech, novel, epic poem, folk tale, or chat log a day to fill out your examples of discourse. Or one of the above if you have a real job.

Okay, so I’m going to write a line. In English, there once was a man from Kalakaig…

Subject-Object-Verb: [A man from Kalalkaig] [There] [is-past tense-long ago]

You know, I’m going to start with something I have SOME words for.

Okay, here’s some words already in my Lexicon:
kaalopato->fake, poser, someone pretending to be something they’re not, Yellow-face.
gilon-> to shout
baado, baado, “some ancestor way back in the (father’s) line.” “baa, baa” some ancestor you’re not clear on which line.
-ba possessive pronoun

A poser was shouting his pedigree

[Kaalopato] [baa-baa-ba-ne] [past tense-gilon-subject agreement]

Kaalopato baa-baa-ba-ne ulie-Gilon-tyat …

Lazy notes on vowels: ai, i, aa, a, e, ie, u, o, oo (light, chit, car, cat, let, reed, mud, note, roost)
