:Here's a couple more examples. Despite the intriguingly named "ram-ship", I really haven't done anything interesting on the conworlding side. But hopefully that'll change, soon enough...
[g ram-ship]/kalh-[/g] [g make]dzo=[/g] [g past]e^,[/g] [g 1Sg.A]gi-[/g] [g near.direct]s/[/g]
"I built a ram-ship"
- /kalh/ "ram-ship" is an incorporated object; with /kalh/, the verb root /dzo/ "make" takes on the more specific meaning "build". ...

:Excellent! It definitely looks like a North American indigenous language, but not of either of the families I'm more familiar with (Penutian and Muskogean). I like the suffixes that simultaneously express subject person and number, (ir)realis, and (im)perfective. The main thing I'm wondering right now is what the difference is between acute accent and superscript 'H' in the URs.

:i'm trying to wrap my head around the "fixed temporal reference" thing. does "no fixed temporal reference" mean the speaker isn't asserting past/present/future, or just that they aren't asserting a specific time interval/point in particular? if it's the former, it doesn't seem very useful, most just for generic or habitual statements. if it's the latter, then it seems like you could use it more widely. but even in that situation, doesn't it mean that if you use a definite time adverbial, like "t...

yep! and to irc, and to annie. although i'm sure there's something else i have to be doing.
technically i still have to defend it and not fuck up whatever administrative hoops i have to jump through. but that should be easy enough.

:i can't disclose any winnings, but i *can* say i had a whole bunch of fun! i think you're right about game shows outside of home markets, so you'll have to wait for a pirated version. not that i'm providing one, since i don't want to jeopardize any winnings, if there be any ;)

:well ... so i made an appearance on Jeopardy! (the famed US game show with the erstwhile mustachioed canadian host) last week, and alex trebek asked about my hobby of language creation, so i told him about tl'acho, and made up the word [gich'aatse]. the episode airs june 16th, though i think it's only aired in the US and maybe Canada.

:Well, it's been freaking YEARS since I've posted anything on a conlang I've worked on, so here goes. Tl'acho is a vaguely North American language, with bits taken from Penutian, Algonquian, Muskogean, and others. I've been working on a grammatical sketch forever, but I think it might be more interesting and perhaps clearer if I introduced Tl'acho through examples. So, here goes (NB: I'll probably fuck up the glossing tags at first. Bear with!):
