In a bit of a rut…

kardak seems to be stalling a bit. All it wants to give me at the moment is more vocabulary, of which I still have not updated the lexicon with the last 100 or so terms created during the last rut. I have been spending a small amount of time googling linguistic terms that my pea brain can’t seem to grasp. I’m the first to admit that I don’t particularly care how certain structures work, save a small bit of general curiosity. OH, OH!!!! I almost forgot….The Conlanging Film is finally out!!! You can either rent it or buy your own copy here! I have watched it probably 15 times already. It is worth every penny. I am thrilled to have been a part of it and featured in it.

One thing I have been toying with now and again is music…I want to find someone or a few someones that can sing kardak lyrics int he style of monkchants, since I don’t believe kardak can really be sung any other way. My problem is that I get so many ideas that my anxiety kicks in and I start shaking any time I start any projects.  anywho…. I’ll check back in soon. -Esh sethir,ii thalovn…

Clusivity in kardak

One of the many features of kardak that I am quite fond of is its clusivity, a special distinction between inclusive and exclusive that allows for first person pronouns to be a little bit more direct. For instance, when you use the pronoun ‘you’, who you is, is at best, implied. In kardak, there are 3 distinctions that make this more specific. This also works for they/we/us as well as for they/them.

Clusivity.
