Translation theme of the day:
Voere - spring
Ripaane - summer
Viskaane - autumn
Soraane - winter
The Inna people traditionally divided the year in three seasons, with spring and fall meeting without a summer in between. In the modern day the Kuerhyét word for summer ripaane is borrowed as ripənəh and sometimes used.
Akanəh - winter (mid november - mid march)
Bunəh - spring + early summer (mid march - mid july)
Nahkəh - late summer + autumn (mid july - mid november)
I’m gonna go back to Europe, I’ll come back if I don’t like it, bye
What was your first conlang like?
I made mine when I was 11. It was basically English in reverse spelling. No unique grammar. I thought I was so clever thinking people couldn't understand it in the NS forums, then I got called out. So I made my second conlang: Tagalog in reverse spelling.
e 'o t'servé meljhor?
and did that one serve you better?
The first one that i can remember and still have information about was basically a weird mix of Polish and English, as well as whatever random things i thought of, like <Ůů> for [u], with the letter <Uu> being unused... why. <Ƶƶ> for [ʒ], and all the words were a mix of what they were in Polish and in English
And i have NO idea what the grammar was, if there even was any defined, because that's all lost now, and has been for ~4-5 years
Also i remember that there was some alphasyllabary-type thing that might have been older with letters from whatever, like Hebrew, but that's also lost

Aurun is my first one but the very first version of it was a Romance + Germanic language heavy inspired by French and German but it was just some French and German vocabulary with no actual structure, just randomly put there.
If we don't count Aurun, then there was an earlier "conlang" of mine which is just a ripoff of every Slavic language.
Those two are the ones I still remember.
Aurun's development was pretty hectic until the final concept that I currently use.
Te hädie hun Renuaya! Jeame edie na gasí. :)
Goodbye Renway! It was nice to have you here. :)
Mine was a Germanic/Romance based mix, based on the multilingual warning note in the Kinder Egg boxes. Grammar was basically Norwegian with slightly altered word order. I remember the first sentence I made in it:
Dod nehi pel andeme sab dri ani, sate ale kai uites su uin nasu spires - Don't give to children under the age of three years, small parts may be swallowed or inhaled through the nose.
Such multilingual notes were my gateway into (layman) linguistics. I remember becoming really fascinated by Romanian from this Kinder Egg note; so clearly related to the other Romance languages, yet so different.. :O It was great! :D I don't know if I was even aware of the concept of Romance before this, maybe not even the language family tree model. I think I was around 10-11-12 years old.. Later, I got a Gideon bible for my confirmation (age 14), and in the back it had the Sermon on the Mount (or was it the Babel text?) in several languages; including non-latin orthography ones like Hindi, Tamil, Georgian and Armenian, as well as Russian and Greek (which I was a bit more familiar with). I made a lot of conscripts in the couple of years following that.. :)
Uhuy! Hudie hun hihu hen! :D
Aha! Welcome back then! :D
..the tongue-twistery quality of that sentence is actually coincidental. I love it when stuff like that happen. XD
â, q'bom, t'qedas
ah, wonderful, you're staying
Since i don't want to hand write every image i translate into Anmevigian, i've been trying to work on a font since atleast November, and recently i've found a way that's acutally fast (atleast compared to what i was doing before) so i could make these many characters in just 3 days, way easier (will need to fix the cuttof i think)
currently it contains all normal ANM characters (except "!", which i only realised now) as well as a lot of ot-kujy-ustd (the CJK looking characters) which are generally common
