I have updated my Almaqerin & Sitarwelas web site with a few
new documents (the previous update dated from last July). The major
changes are summarized below.
-- [Module:5] Verbal and nominal aspects
Description: This Almaqerin module results from a discussion
with Nik Taylor on the CONLANG list. It deals with
"aspects" for verbs and nouns, such as inchoative,
desiderative... and includes a section on verbal and
Comment: A draft version of this document was 'hidden' on the
site since July, and has been largely discussed on the
-- [Module:7] Prepositions
Description: The sections devoted to prepositions in the
Almaqerin Grammar are rather brief and do not present
the system used in this language consistently. This
modules is therefore an effort to provide a complete
account of its peculiar structures.
-- Ui.mathan anBabel cu dirv anTyesedis
Description: The Almaqerin translation of the well known
"Babel" text (Genesis 11:1-9) is at last available.
-- Language evolution: The History of Almaqerin and Sitarwelas
Description: An internal history of these two languages. The
page also features some less developed conlangs I had
never presented before.
-- Sense adjectives
Description: This module describes how color, scent, taste and
touch adjectives are formed in Almaqerin and Sitarwelas.
Change: There is now an additional section "Comparison degrees"
which describes the formation of comparatives for such
adjectives in Almaqerin.
Feel free to comment, either on the list or privately.
