This post will focus on one of the Donsilan languages I have in development. Datutan is the principal common language of the pendant holders and Alcea, and shares a great resemblance with the Indo-European languages (see my previous post for the reason). While it is still in its infancy, I can mention some things here.
This post will go over the languages spoken by the Donsilans. By nature, the Donsilan languages have more grammatical “complexity” than human languages, making them rather difficult to learn for humans. In addition, Donsilan languages change little over the years (for the common language of the pendant holders, the writing system used can easily be written for 7,000-year-old language as it can be for the modern language).
With September coming to an end, I felt like posting something, anything, on this blog for the month. This will be my sixth post on anime and manga, and I find it fitting to post this at this time, given the transition to a new anime season.
I had planned to release the first episode of the fourth chapter of Innocence Seekers: April Light sometime around August 24, but due to the death of my grandmother I have decided to delay the release of this episode. The episode’s release date has been pushed back to early or mid September, and I plan to take a break from site activities as I mourn.
While I have been working on my projects, including Innocence Seekers, in the last few weeks, this post will go over something different. Over the past few months, I have been gathering parts to build a replacement for my aging machine, and in the past few days, the last parts I needed arrived.
This will be my fifth post on anime and manga, and I will make it a quick post. This season, I have only picked up one anime, but there are a number of anime I’m considering for the following season.
This post will detail two particular categories of Namari verbs. One thing I noticed when going through Japanese verbs is that there are only a small number of upper vowel-stem verbs (ending in -iru) compared to their lower counterparts (ending in -eru). As such, I will analyse each Japanese upper vowel-stem verb and see if its Namari counterpart is also upper bigrade or upper monograde.
I am close to finishing the final episode of the third chapter of Innocence Seekers: April Light, but this blog post will show a few of the plans I have regarding the next chapter. It will be largely set on Elrodom, and follows the pattern of the previous two chapters, both of which involve searching for the World Orbs. However, there are some complications that set this chapter apart.
While I’m still working on Innocence Seekers: April Light (I hope to have the final episode of chapter 3 finished by the end of June), I’ve decided to take the time to announce a new side project. What is unique about this project is that it will actually be entirely written in Namari. Its title will be Five to Save the World (Namari: よお そくお たん えつつ Yō Sokuo tan Etutu, Japanese: 世界を救うために五つ Sekai wo Sukuu Tame ni Itsutsu), and it will follow five pairs of sisters (aged nine and ten in Earth years) as they try to save everyone in their world from a strange force that “froze” them by venturing into another world.
