• Late to 2020: Reviewing 2019

    I’m not terribly proud of myself for falling behind in December, but I also worked much less on my writing and my conlang. For the first time in a long while, I had a huge boost in motivation to work on GURPS stuff. So, that’s what I did, but I didn’t post about anything because […]

  • End of November writing report

    I’ll admit that I used a time machine to send this post to actually be at the end of November because I didn’t want to see a month-long gap in posts on my blog. I’ll also admit that I did absolutely zero work on my conlang, which is why this is not a greyfolk language report—it’s […]

  • End of October greyfolk language report

    To be honest, I wrote my last post because I got caught up on whether I should capitalize ‘greyfolk’ or not in this post’s title. During October, I had 15-ish strong days of work on my conlang, which isn’t too much more than last month, but, somehow, I put out six posts this month (not […]

  • Is it Greyfolk or greyfolk?

    That’s a question that I’m still asking and answering myself! Proper nouns—such as names of countries, nationalities, and languages—should be capitalized. However, when I’m talking about greyfolk, it’s like talking about humans/humanity, which are concepts that aren’t capitalized. So, ‘the English language’ is capitalized, but the idea of ‘human language’ isn’t. Of course, I could […]

  • New greyfolk language typeface, syllable blocks, numerals

    After working on other pieces of the greyfolk language for so long, I am genuinely proud to present the new typeface: klepalka (it’s in a .zip file since .ttf files aren’t normally allowed by WordPress). The name is just a transliteration of the work ‘greyfolk’ into the greyfolk language. Instead of just containing a few […]

  • Greyfolk language’s monosyllabic roots and words: roots 6–11

    In my previous post, I covered the first five monosyllabic roots. In this post, I will cover the next six. «me» «se» «ke» «tle» «yel» «yil» «nel» «nil» «ten» «tin» «lem» «lim» «pem» «pim» «pum» «pli» «plu» «min» «mun» «kyu» «kul» «num» «sul» «lun» «yum» «myu» «hu» «syu» «nel» translates into English as ‘past’ as […]

  • Greyfolk language’s monosyllabic roots and words: roots 1–5

    In my previous post, I gave described the background and the process of coming up with the monosyllabic roots and words for the greyfolk language. There are 20 of them, but, in this post, I will go over the first five. «me» «se» «ke» «tle» «yel» «yil» «nel» «nil» «ten» «tin» «lem» «lim» «pem» «pim» […]

  • Greyfolk language’s monosyllabic roots and words: the background

    Before I start talking about the nouns formed from the 20 monosyllabic roots in the greyfolk language, I want to explain some background concepts as well as the process. After almost two months, I finished these suckers about a week ago, and then I gave them a bit of time to rest because I knew […]

  • Belated end of September Greyfolk language report

    During September, I had 13-ish strong days of work on my conlang. Even with all of that work, it feels like I have so little to show. I’m mulling over the idea of making more regular posts that talk about what I’m working on instead of just what I’ve finished. I merged my possessive/genitive particle […]
