So I’ve been playing with this #WIPWorldBuilders worldbuilding challenge on Twitter, and thinking about doing my own for Mastodon/The Fediverse, so when @DMoonfire greeted me this morning, I asked him how one greeted someone in (one of) his conlang(s).
Then I realized I had no way to say hello in Calenyen!
So I fixed that.
kettaar /kɛt.tɑɹ/ (from ket hey, and taar, you), Hello.
kettaarte /kɛt.tɑɹ.tɛ/ Hello (to you two)
kettaarbe /kɛt.tɑɹ.bɛ/ Hello (to a group/herd)
kettaarne /kɛt.tɑɹ.njɛ/ Hello (to an unknown group, as in greeting an audience)
