Progress is slow.

As of late, kardak’s progress is slow, in part due to my fight with whatever mental issues are plaguing me at the moment making concentration very difficult. So, to give you a little snapshot of what is going on at the moment, kardak is still engaged in the twitter challenge deemed #Lextreme2018, which is going fairly well. I have also begun to completely re-do/revamp kardak’s entire grammar system. This is taking a great deal of time due the a fore mentioned circumstances. I have been studying the grammar systems of a couple other languages in the hope that something will sprout in my brain. I’m not sure how I feel about what I have so far, but it is a step in the right direction. I barely recognize it right now. I’m hoping the changes will make it easier to learn not only for myself, but for anyone who might want to give it a go.

Recently, a friend and fellow conlanger, Trent Pehrson, proposed that we create a makeshift passport and send them around the world to other conlangers to get stamped. You can see my entry and stamp if you simply peruse my Instagram page here…  This has been a fun project thus far. One of my fellow conlangers said I was going to end up like Tolkien. I guess I should take that as a compliment seeing as I always thought I would end up like Van Gogh…

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.
