Share something interesting about your conlang
Maniolan conjugates its verbs using a variety of ways. One is something ike "delicious > de-freaking-licious", another like "diverse > divers-ify", and "light > en-light-en." You can also repeat a syllable, but that doesn't exist in English. Thus, we can conjugate something like "light" to "en-li-li-bloody-ight-en-ify" or something

Hello to you two Renway and The maniolas, and welcome to the Council of Constructed languages! :)
I'm guessing pro drop with 1p assumed and a verb sta(g) meaning staying for a while, with -(g)a being a TAM suffix signifying future or intent or something. Could also be that staga is unmarked with present assumed, so literally I stay here for a while, which could easily be translated with an intentive in English. (How far off am I Renway?)
Your language is compact in a whole other sense Kowani. :D
That's neat. :)
Something interesting about Kuerhyét, well.. I guess it has a kind of an interesting nominal gender system:
* 3d person pronouns distinguish two levels: human / non-human
* Demonstrative/numeral articles distinguish three levels: human / animate / inanimate
* Lower numerals distinguish three levels: human / diminutive / general
I realise it's not that interesting, but it's all I can think of rn. Hm. :/

Hello and welcome to the Council of Constructed Languages, Luthoulia, Renway, The maniolas!
Not too late for greetings?
Nice, and it sounds familiar to me for some reason.
I'll try to do two of my conlangs.
(Copied from an earlier post)
- Following the Uralic tradition of having a lot of cases, Aurun has 17 in total.
- Vowel harmony is slightly different where ü [y] is a neutral vowel but ˙ (üü) [y:] is a front vowel.
- The ˙ deserves a special mention as the long ü, which is written as üü in some languages but in Aurun, it has its own letter.
- The y can be pronounced in different ways but it's usually [i:] and in some cases it's [j] if it's at the start of the word.
Ya (yes) is ['ja]
Ya (I/me) is ['i:a]
In some Aurun dialects, ya (yes) is written as ja.
- Forming compound words usually has the connecting -n- between the two words if the former ends in a vowel. Sometimes it's not the case like in keikakö (cake month), because of phonology and stuff.
- It features sentence-final particles and one dialect uses it extensively.
>> That dialect is the Karalinne dialect.
- The Nörjänlappi dialect has two plural forms for two and more than two of said noun.
>> Example: Käivhä (Coffee) > Käivhäkäit (Two coffees) > Käivhäkäitet (A lot of f------ coffee)
- Long numbers, long words. Due to the heavy agglutinating feature of the language.
- Aurun is related to Aruzhin, Tälevani, and Kuyonnen.
(Also copied from an earlier post)
- Influenced Aurun, canonically.
- It is where Aurun got the ˙ with extensive use.
- There are 45 noun forms total, not counting the plural forms.
- The definite article "the" is a suffix in the form of -ke and "is" is a prefix as... well, ke-.
- Numerals alternate between the -imi (-ini) and -iri endings that's leftover from a system in (Old) Aruz / Proto-Aruzhin where the endings determine between light / kuipiri and dark / kiitenimi (even and odd) numbers. With the literal meaning of "_ of light" and "_ of dark" respectively.
- Aruzhin writing system has the logographic Zuikiinti and a syllabic Röna that is used alongside the Latin script after it was introduced through contact.
>> Old Aruz used a runic alphabet that was adapted from the nearby Germanic areas and modified to fit the Aruz orthography.
Some of these might not be interesting and it's alright.
I don't have my language totally fleshed out but anyway, we're a (mostly) non-human sci-fi region operating through discord, we're currently going through our early beta phase of the roleplay, and if anyone's interested in hanging out or making languages, we'd love to have a chat.
Renway and Varna state
Current flag of Varna city with star of David and Romani spoked wheel.
Stripes from current flag of Varna with flame symbol of Romani people. I'm thinking maybe the flame symbol would more easily be accepted as a national symbol and not just the symbol of one of the ethnicities of the state? Also, I don't think the spoked wheel was in use until the 70ies IRL. Don't know if Israel is a thing in your timeline or if Varna is the "solution" proposed instead - but as long as it's not portrayed as an exclusively Jewish state the star of David might be problematic. I'm guessing the flame is to accentuate the travelling aspect of Romani culture (camp fires), which Jewish diaspora culture to a degree (used to) share. It could also be used to symbolise Varna as a final resting place for all persecuted people of Europe. (Can you tell this is my favourite proposal? XD )
I'll have one with everything, pls. XD
Nice little tricolor to finish off. Blue from Varna city flag and common color in Jewish symbolism. Green from Romani flag, red from flame symbol. Incidentally a reversed version of an early proposal for a Romani flag, with a darker blue. (Disclaimer: I haven't checked if this tricolor is actually in use somewhere (though I don't think it is)). This flag is in use by the city of Cajibio in Colombia, though if you like it this shouldn't stop you imo.
