TECH: Easy way to build you conlang vocab
|Date:||Saturday, March 1, 2003, 0:11|
Many reccomend you build your conlang's vocabulary a bit at a
time. Well, I've found one easy way to do this:
Word of the Day mailing lists.
Every day, a selection of words appearn right in my inbox. More
importantly, their MEANINGS appear.
I scan that day's crop. Sometimes, I decide that certain concepts
don't exist in a language and make note of such. Sometimes it gives me
a new meaning to add to an existing word. And sometimes, it inspires a
GROUP of words centered on the same concept.
This resource has helped me infinitely, and seems to help my
naturalistic conlangs develope an organic feel.
