Thematic vocabulary

Postby Lippinhoo » 2017-06-22, 2:16

Hi everyone! I'm proposing this topic so we can share our conlangs with thematic vocabularies. So, I start with the animals vocabulary in my new project, the Argest-mugrar language.

Your language really reminds me of Hungarian. Except the e with the dots above. :silly:

OMG [flag=]hu[/flag]! I really love the magyar language and it's certainly one of my influences in this project, although, in Argest, very few words have hungarian etymology. And I must say that the pronunciation of "ë" is the same of hungarian "e", that is, IPA [ɛ].
PS:And nothing of vowel harmony, cause it drives me crazy! lol :silly:

I think it's mostly the áéíóús that give it away. Pluss the letter combinations like zs.

Is "ár" plural or something?

That's not so hard. You only got to learn the combinations for every ending. :mrgreen:

How well do you know Hungarian? :hmm:

I replaced the use of macron or doubling vowels by adopting the acute accent above the vowels to represent long vowels. In the same way,the digraphs and trigraph (cs; czs; zs; dzs) serve to replace the use of diacritics to represent phonemes as
[ʃ]; [tʃ]; [ʒ] and [dʒ]

Yap. The plural of nouns is formed by adding -sár at the end of the word. But, if the last vowel of the word is tonic, it is elongated.
Example:
huzot - animal ---- huzótsár - animals

What I know about Hungarian does not come close to the basics: some vocabulary, pronunciation, some grammar. But I can say your language enchants me and makes me very curious about it.

Were Turkic languages your inspiration for this? (Did you copy-paste from Turkish or Khazakh?)

Not exactly, in Turkish the plural is formed with "-lar / -ler" or something like that. About Khazakh, I don't have much knowledge about the language. But Turkish influenced some of Argest's grammatical and lexical constructs, such as the locative with -de termination, for example.

Anyway, it's a language still in development, and I am not sure which routes Argest will take.
