Silvercat's Conlangs & Links

Updates: Nyji writing updated with more examples. I still need to make an icon for the conlang link.

Conlangs

The majority of my conlangs are Thundercats inspired, for different Thunderian cultures. Ylialis is the major lingua franca (like English is here) and so international standards, including language codes, are generally in Ylialis. To continue the immersion, the conlang pages are written from the point of view of an Ylialis speaker, including writing language and country names in Ylialis. Because, why not make my life that much more difficult?

Dates are given in SE (sword era) dating from the forging of the Sword of Omens. The current year is 3504 SE.

Tsɑkø

One of the influences on Ŋyjichɯn, via trade. Contributed words for legal ideas, money, trade, manufactured goods, jewelry, cooking methods, food names, precious goods, and manufacturing methods. Has complex phonotactics and vowel harmony. Pretty much complete with basic grammar and about 250 words.

Maanxmuʃt

The other of the influences on Ŋyjichɯn. Contributed words for adornment, clothes, grooming, and various other things through intermarriage. Related to Lepadi and Ylialis. Has complex consonant clusters and phonotactics, two genders, 6 cases, and strong and weak nouns.

Ŋyjichɯn

My biggest conlang. This is the language that Wilykit and Wilykat, and my OC Felino speak. Features noun incorporation, flexible word order, paucals, reduplication, and non-gendered pronouns. Has a writing system with two forms.

Old Nyji was influenced by Tsɑkø and Maanxmuʃt and developed into Early Nyji.

Ylialis

Mostly on hold until more of Maanxmuʃt is done. Five genders, relatively complex consonant clusters, and lots of affixes. Fusional. Weird vowel system caused by past vowel shifts (it looks normal until you look at the IPA...). Phonology and phonotactics are done, the rest is pretty much up in the air.
