This is just a quick temporary way to save some information from the ZBB that might get deleted (when no-one wants it to be) and that can't be put on the KneeQuickie yet because Neek can't maintain his wiki at the moment. I can organize it into a Wiki article later.

Posted: Thu Oct 26, 2006 11:16 am    Post subject: Body Parts In Your Conlangs   

Again, apologies to Janko. This goes with his "Numbers ..."; it also goes with the threads "Kinterms ..." and "Colorterms ..." which I started in this forum.

How many, and who, among us have more-or-less completish vocabularies for body parts in some of our conlangs? And which conlangs?

("Not me, yet", is, I'm afraid, my first contribution.)

Here's my attempt at an outline. If you find it incomplete, add stuff; if you find a different order would be better, re-arrange it; and if you find it makes "different" things your conlang would make "same", edit it.


Body -Blood vessel --Artery --Vein -Material of which it is composed --Bone --Gristle or cartilage (sp? cartilege?) --Skin --Muscle --Fat --Blood -Trunk (torso) --Chest ---Heart ---Lung --Abdomen or Belly ---Stomach ---Liver ---Spleen ---Intestines --Waist -Neck -Extremity --Head ---Hair ---Ear


Earhole
Earlobe?

---Eye


Eyeball
Iris
Pupil
Sclera
Eyebrow
Eyelid
Eyelash
Eye socket
Tear gland

---Nose


Nostril

---Mouth


Jaw
Maxilla (upper jaw)
Mandible (lower jaw)
Tooth
Incisor
Eyetooth or Canine Tooth
Molar (and/or premolar?)
Tongue

--Limb ---Arm


Shoulder
Elbow
Wrist
Humerus (upper arm)
Lower Arm
Hand
Palm

---Leg


Hip
buttock (if different)
Knee
Ankle
Thigh (upper leg)
Shank (lower leg, between knee and ankle)
Shin
Calf
Foot
Sole
Heel
Ball

--Digit (toe or thumb or finger) ---Nail


Fingernail
Toenail

---Toe


Pollex ("Great" Toe or Big Toe)
Pinky toe or little toe
Other individual toes?

---Thumb


Thumbnail

---Finger


Index finger
Pinky finger
Middle finger
Ring finger

--My god, how could I have left out the genitalia?!?! ---female


vagina
womb

---male


penis
testicle

-Side --Back --Front --Left --Right --Bottom (lower) --Top (upper) -Orifices --anus --urethral meatus? --vagina was covered under "genitalia". --mouth and nose and ear were covered under "head". So was "eye", but your conlang might not consider that an orifice.


I am looking forward to the answers!

Thanks, in advance.


<EDIT:> Does your conlang, or do your conlangs, use any of these terms, or reduced forms of them, as affixes? Or as verbs or adjectives or prepositions or conjunctions or pronouns? (I left out "adverbs" and "interjections". I assume the "interjections" part is "yes", because some of these are probably good curse-words. I can't think how to make one of these body-part nouns into an adverb, though.) </EDIT>


<EDIT:> What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of life? Popular answers are the liver (hence the name "liver") and the heart.

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of emotion? Popular answers are the stomach, the guts, and the heart.

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of consciousness? Popular answers are the eyes and the heart; but modern Western culture says "the brain". </EDIT>

Your forgot the Isles of Langerhans.


I tried to leave out most things that were microscopic (like the Islets), and most things that were not visible on the surface (like the Islets).

(I also left out the Organ of Zuckerkandl, which resides in the arch of the aorta. Nobody seems to know what it's for.)

(And I left out the voicebox or larynx, and other parts of the speech system. Perhaps I should have included some of them. Others are welcome to, if they feel it would be good to do so.)

Bones and blood and stomachs-and-or-intestines and hearts and wombs, however, seemed like I should include them.

Blood is often visible on the surface, after a minor injury.

If bone is visible on the surface, a major injury has occurred; but one can detect the bone from the outside by touch.

Hearts move and make a sound detectable from the outside.

The same is true of the stomach-and-or-intestines; furthermore the owner of the stomach can often tell when it's empty, or when it wants to operate in reverse (the name of that sensation is "nausea").

Wombs have visible results; and their owners know what's going on in them. (Actually, I've been kicked awake by an unborn baby whose mother slept through the kick!)

As for livers and spleens and sweetbreads and so on: They are often referred to in old-fashioned conversations preceding the advent of modern medicine; I assume that the practice of butchery, together with those of surgery and veterinary and medicine, familiarized people with some of them. In some Native North American languages, for instance, an automobile's battery is referred to as its "liver".

It would be reasonable for some conlangs not to have all of these, and for others to have body-part terms in addition to these.

Why more than one word? In some cases, viz. Kuvdamos wrote:

--Vein tamap wurpap peso --Abdomen or Belly pia pemarapup, pemarapupi -Neck pia pawa palidapa

Palm purpapimpam bla pampsam pia mipalbapsa
Ankle pebapi bliwipi
Toenail ebbi warp aspi

---Toe saweman sampi pia ---Thumb abi, abepi, pampsap abepem


it looks like you need a phrase to distinguish from some other body-part; but in some cases, viz. Kuvdamos wrote:

Body abba, blassi, ubbalap --Fat blampilpim, pilpi ---Heart wepse, wawa ---Lung ebo, ebobi --Abdomen or Belly pia pemarapup, pemarapupi -Extremity palupopi, pemiabi --Head wibu, pawapi ---Ear uma, sobopi ---Eye pamala, wamul, oppi, pispi

buttocks: porpe, perara, puru, sal urine: lop, ibbi, wapom, soba, sopa, pupi, pupu feces: wa, wam, wapsa, wawa, pilpabi, popop, porpobbum, pepabi, sepabi


it looks like you have more than one term which are interpretable by the same "English" term. In the latter cases, is that because your conlang makes a distinction "English" doesn't (actually, that I didn't?) Or do you have two different synonyms? In which case when is it appropriate to use the one, and when the other?

Yes! I have edited it. Do you have a word for "thigh" in your conlang?

I have a set of roots, with compounds to attach greater detail

like finger + nail = fingernail or mouth + lower = jaw or head + high = scalp/forehead and so on

so an amalgamation of roots or root/locatives usually does the trick (to get as specific as needed) for the Drem

I'll post my list sometime later/tonight.. _________________ Nilikuonyesha nyota (mwezi) na uliangalia kidole tu. I pointed out to you the stars (the moon) and all you saw was the tip of my finger.

Interesting! Is this suppletive, or irregular, or what? Is "soemaef" dual or plural? How are the forms "simah" and "soemaef" derived one from the other?

lip - zilh


I left that out. Should I have included it? I'm glad you got my suggestion that people should include anything they thought of, even if I'd left it out.

Is that the same as "neck", or different?

Good; these probably should be the same word in many languages.


Thanks, Goza Lesha. Thanks, schwhatever. Thanks, everyone.

<EDIT> Does your conlang, or do your conlangs, use any of these terms, or reduced forms of them, as affixes? Or as verbs or adjectives or prepositions or conjunctions or pronouns?

I can't think how to make one of these body-part nouns into an adverb, though.) </EDIT>


Many languages have bodypartaffixes that functions as adverbs of manner. He "headbutted" him for example. In mesoamerican languages it is extremely common. Whether they are adverbs or not is a case of definition but they modify verbs that is for sure.

That's the kind of thing I wanted to know about. What's the answer for Mèlw?

Interesting; thanks. (I have been told -- I don't know whether it's true -- that in "modern western" societies, men tend to see certain parts of their bodies as the "center of their sexual attractiveness", whereas women OTOH see each and every part of their bodies as the "center(?) of their sexual attractiveness". Your Vernaclerians' thinking that each part of their body is the "seat of life" sounds a little like the latter. But do they feel that way about hair and nails? And excretions such as sweat and saliva and earwax?)

Well, so far, Socialese seems to be taking an impressionistic turn with a strong emphasis on personal meaning. So the concept of "eye" might be expressed as "It lets me see" and "genital" as "it gives me sexual pleasure". So far, though, I haven't worked out all the details.

It was originally an auxlang for Turkish before I decided to build a conworld around it ... so yeah, its absurdly heavily influenced (there is quite a bit of con- in it, though )

Interesting! Is this suppletive, or irregular, or what? Is "soemaef" dual or plural? How are the forms "simah" and "soemaef" derived one from the other?


It's left over from an older plural system similar to German's lengthening system. I haven't worked out the specifics yet, unfortunately. It irregular, but with some method to its madness, as you can see the remnents of the earlier plural system, but also a worn down version of the later -(I/E)b system.

Qatama: English:

anaq head anuq ear(s) ongo eye(s) okota heart toru back taruya hip/waist tara belly/stomach utar chest/breast nogra feet/toes anuja leg udan hand/arm qongo joint gan bone gua mouth/face ogua facial hair uha skin udanju fingers/knuckles dong nose g'tla shoulder qono muscle anaqra neck guata teeth guaja tongue unuq hair

-Khang


1) Did I do that right?

2) Why did you quote yourself? 2a) Apparently you had already answered this question in some other post. Where? and what post?

3) The word "nogra feet/toes" reminds me a bit of Russian; but the rest of the list doesn't remind me of any language in particular. Is Qatama intended to be related to any natlang?

Again, Thanks.

The main Psinu belief is that there are three main parts of a person:

1) the physical body, exemplified by the hands (eg. "bring your hands over here" - come here)

2)The conection with God (this is sometimes used to mean your ability to love someone, because it is believe that this connection with God escorts your soul to heaven, so if it's gone, the person has lost their soul), exemplified in the brain (actually, they think it's just a goey good-for-nothing, yet God must have put it there for a purpose, so maybe it's our connection with God?) This is not like the christian 'Holy Spirit, because it doesn't help you in life, it just guides you to heaven.

3) The personality, the 'real you'. This is said to be in the lungs.

My current conculture project is retooling a proto-language, so at the moment I lack a total vocabulary and am not too sure on how to expand the entire ideal. However, I would like to answer these questions here.

The Paratinó should not be considered an individual, existing culture. There are are little known texts about these people, and what is drawn here is drawn as a common denominator from the cultures that arose from the Paratinó.

The assumed idea is that any given emotion has three components:

  • A fluid (blood, semen, saliva, bile)
  • An organ (any of them, really; though the genitals, liver, heart, brain, eyes, and tongue are chief)
  • Direction.

This means that the path to any emotion requires one fluid to be filtered through an organ in a very specific direction. To make it simple, there is no simple way to say "life is seated in the liver," life can be many things.

The fluid of blood is oftentimes called *adda sēυsŭ, or humor vitae. This sort of phrase stands side-by-side for the root for blood, *φĭlem. When one is lively and active, the blood flows through the heart upward. When one is wrought with anger, it is upward through the brain.

When one is virile, it is semen (*adda tmilsŭ, the water of birth, or simply sθiwar) that flows downward into the genitals; however whenever when one is lustfull and simply desires self-pleasure, it is saliva that passes through the genitals (saliva being *adda gnāstıtsŭ, the water of desire; also aspa, spit) When on is empassioned with love, it is semen that flows to the left through the heart.

Consciousness and guilt are bile (*adda graχwisŭ, the water of spite, or graχwisos that flow downward through the liver. When one is reighteous, bile passes upward through the liver.

I hope this helps, and soon I should be able to expand the vocabulary to name all the organs.

"telumàrel" and "telùmar" look related; are they? "wòxin", "wòxel", and "woxh" look related; are they? Are there other relationships I've missed?


The suffix "-el" means something like "the source of." So "telùmar" is hand, and "telumàrel" is literally "hand source", or the arm. With "woxh," which is foot, the h is silent and then dropped when the suffix is added making "wòxel," or leg. "Wòxin" is foot with the suffix for what equates to "middle." There are a few more like "ë̀ro" and "ë̀roi" for body and head. "ërotelùmar," meaning hair, is also related believe it or not, to hand, literally meaning "little hands."

I'm not ashamed of it, no; it just slipped my mind completely! I had to go back and put them in. I had been intending to include them when I started. The reason for the different capitalization patterns is just that I did them at different times.

Beftokan's still a new conlang (only about 150 words in the lexicon to date), but it does have most of the points of consonantal articulation noted (linguistics is a living science in Beftok), so I'll list them here:

lip - èman [e_M.ma_Ln] (paucal: kaèman) tooth - ghîš [GI_Hs`] tongue - šuun [s`u:n] alveolar ridge - gìkew [gi_M.ke_L.M_L] palate - bugháth [bu_L.Ga_Ht_h] velum - ughom [u_L.GO_Lm] uvula - bháplekh [Ba_H.plE_Lx] glottis - durtan [du_L4.ta_Ln]

All body parts, including these, are considered to be part of the "human" noun class, and will decline according to it once I post the grammar.

I just thought of several terms one might include here. Not all of them will apply to all non-human species, but I've bolded the ones I think are essential, or at least very likely to be used among humans.

lip(s) gums palate uvula throat, esophagus ("I've got something in my neck" doesn't mean ... quite the same thing) throat, thrachea, windpipe breast, tit, teat nipple belly button tendon forehead temple bladder calf butt, buttocks, ass/arse pelvis spine, backbone skull rib(s) / ribcage

How could you forget "breast" and "ass/arse"? _________________ Òmiç lumei ge lòmtau vi ge bleiskou, ge tiltau vi ge vighou, ge kivo vi ge prèhou.

"Breast" might not apply to non-mammals. Nevertheless it should be included. Thanks for bringing it up. "Ass/arse" should obviously apply to nearly any animal, even sea-squirts. Thanks for including it.

The conection with God (this is sometimes used to mean your ability to love someone, because it is believe that this connection with God escorts your soul to heaven, so if it's gone, the person has lost their soul), exemplified in the brain (actually, they think it's just a goey good-for-nothing, yet God must have put it there for a purpose, so maybe it's our connection with God?) This is not like the christian 'Holy Spirit, because it doesn't help you in life, it just guides you to heaven.

The personality, the 'real you'. This is said to be in the lungs.

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of life?

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of emotion?

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of consciousness?


My current conculture project is retooling a proto-language, so at the moment I lack a total vocabulary and am not too sure on how to expand the entire ideal. However, I would like to answer these questions here. The Paratinó should not be considered an individual, existing culture. There are are little known texts about these people, and what is drawn here is drawn as a common denominator from the cultures that arose from the Paratinó. The assumed idea is that any given emotion has three components:

  • A fluid (blood, semen, saliva, bile)
  • An organ (any of them, really; though the genitals, liver, heart, brain, eyes, and tongue are chief)
  • Direction.

This means that the path to any emotion requires one fluid to be filtered through an organ in a very specific direction. To make it simple, there is no simple way to say "life is seated in the liver," life can be many things. The fluid of blood is oftentimes called *adda sēυsŭ, or humor vitae. This sort of phrase stands side-by-side for the root for blood, *φĭlem. When one is lively and active, the blood flows through the heart upward. When one is wrought with anger, it is upward through the brain. When one is virile, it is semen (*adda tmilsŭ, the water of birth, or simply sθiwar) that flows downward into the genitals; however whenever when one is lustfull and simply desires self-pleasure, it is saliva that passes through the genitals (saliva being *adda gnāstıtsŭ, the water of desire; also aspa, spit) When on is empassioned with love, it is semen that flows to the left through the heart. Consciousness and guilt are bile (*adda graχwisŭ, the water of spite, or graχwisos that flow downward through the liver. When one is reighteous, bile passes upward through the liver. I hope this helps, and soon I should be able to expand the vocabulary to name all the organs.

@You, Neek ('cause there is only one of you); Oh, yes, it surely does help; thanks. Have you been able to expand the vocabulary yet to any other names of organs that you'd like us to see? If so, where can we look for them?

Thanks, -Klaivas-. I admit I'm kind of surprised the Yuiyo need a word for the gooch. I recall a discussion from my younger days about what to call the feminine version of the "gooch"; the consensus was it should be called "the chin-rest". _________________ Sappho wrote: The moon has set, and the Pleiades; it is midnight, and time passes, and I sleep alone.

When I was growing up, the male version was a "choad." (Hrm, can't blame that on regional differences either, can I?) But since then I've been introduced to the word "taint" ('t ain't one end and 't ain't the other) which appears to be gender-neutral. _________________ "When I was about 16 it occurred to me that conlanging might be a sin, but I changed my mind when I realized Adam and Eve were doing it before the Fall." —Mercator

You're doing well in other semantic fields; and in this one you're at least four ahead of me. Thanks. We'll be looking forward to seeing/hearing your expanded list. _________________ Sappho wrote: The moon has set, and the Pleiades; it is midnight, and time passes, and I sleep alone.

Well, I wasn't "brought up" with the term, but I'd seen "choad" used to mean "jism" (or "semen" or "seed" or "ejaculate"(the noun)). _________________ Sappho wrote: The moon has set, and the Pleiades; it is midnight, and time passes, and I sleep alone.

No offense, but I think nearly everyone will vote to let it die. It's not that it's not a great thread, it's just that hey, if we do it for this thread, why not 99 others? And then the museum would just be hard to browse though. I saved the thread to my hard drive though. _________________ I've always been an anarcho-socialist.

I was happy to move the kinterms thread to the Museum because it contains some very useful information on the way different languages divide up the "kinship space" differently and how this correlates to cultural factors. I can't see any corresponding justification for indexing this thread; it's a nice collection, but it is just a collection of vocabulary from our conlangs. _________________ Amaya wrote: Every now and then, the world tries to say something.

Oh then I have no idea what he's talking about nor what it looks like.

EDIT: Now that I've seen the pic I know what it is and what it looks like. Now I have a question:

What purpose does it serve?

Don't think it has any. But it is a feature often affected by deformities, it seems. A cleft palate may extend the cleft onto the upper lip, thus splitting it along the philtrum (i.e. a harelip), whereas kids with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome lack the indent entirely. Also, anecdotally, a friend of mine used to have a convex skin-bump thing instead of an indentation (she had it surgically corrected at young age).

Here are the words for body parts I have for Terpish so far:

Bol — belly Jok — eye Klit — clitoris Kof — head Kor — heart Liöshan — brain Mumbe — butt Piej — foot

Naturally, the Terps understand biology well enough to understand the appropriate place for the seat of emotion and consciousness (the brain). _________________

What's the difference between a vein and an artery? Also, I was wondering if someone could tell me what these words mean: gristle/cartilage, sclera, incisor, eyetooth/canine tooth, molar/premolar, shin, orifices? I think you've left out brain. Finnish and Swedish distuingishes between the back and front of the neck. Could you maybe add those, oh and back of the head too?

It refers more to the leg itself, in front of the bone. When I think of the word "shin" I think of how close the bone is to the skin and how much it hurts to get kicked there. _________________

As for the other questions - they are much like us, technologically and scientifically advanced, so they know the true function of each organ, but much like us, although they know the true situation, there still remain certain cultural attachments to organs. The heart and guts are the home of the emotions - the heart beats faster with just about any intense emotion, and when it gets even more intense, the stomach aches. Consciousness was associated with the eyes, although it then became associated with the brain because people who had lost their eyes still reported being conscious - the brain was the obvious choice, being behind the eyes, and able to see through them. _________________ ils wrote: Imralu: certified sane!

The oxygenation state is the other way round in the vessels going between the heart and the lungs. I dunno how it works before being born.

Oh, add "placenta" to the list if you want. _________________ Thi sisaf akecon langbu tno onec antell. Ia mwor kingo nare aloneb utver yslo wly. Kigdatsi/Humans of Su-0-0: Gae/nosf S5 Dnho Om Tc/m CL/-- SE1 CD4-3 CC1/5 CO5/1 E3 Pe,f

Heh! This is probably the only language that has three words for urethral meatus.

But what exactly is the tear gland? I tried looking it up at WP but I couldn't understnad the picture. And what is meant with bottom and top side? Is it supposed to be the lower and upper half of the body? _________________

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a fully developed conlang with nearly as much /u/ as that. Is it because you just like /u/ or did you do it to set this language apart from others in your conworld? _________________ I've always been an anarcho-socialist.

Heh! I didn't intend it to become so common from the beginning. In Lhueslue every phoneme bears a meaning and /u/ means material. As it happened, almost every noun gets an /u/. _________________

Qwynegold wrote: But what exactly is the tear gland? I tried looking it up at WP but I couldn't understand the picture. Tears are the watery, salty secretion that keeps the eyes moist. The bulk of the refracting of light during focussing is done by a thin veil of tears; the lens just fine-tunes it. Tears also contain protein (and FAIK other biological ingredients); that is why it is necessary to clean contact lenses once a day. When the eye is irritated the production and flow of tears is increased, to the point that they leak out of the eye; the usual result is to wash out whatever is irritating the eye. When someone weeps, they often over-produce tears this same way. Tear-glands (aka lacrimal glands) are in the upper outer corners of the eyes. In the lower inner corners of the eyes are ducts that ordinarily take tears down into the nose; if the tear-glands aren't overproducing, this is where tears usually are disposed of.

Qwynegold wrote: And what is meant with bottom and top side? Is it supposed to be the lower and upper half of the body? Just think either "bottom of body" and "top of body", or "lower half of body" and "upper half of body". If you want two pairs of terms, go ahead and provide both. Otherwise take your pick.

aardwolf wrote: Museum? Nah; there's no real 'important' information here.


If more people responded to the following questions, would it?

I wrote: Does your conlang, or do your conlangs, use any of these terms, or reduced forms of them, as affixes? Or as verbs or adjectives or prepositions or conjunctions or pronouns? (I left out "adverbs" and "interjections". I assume the "interjections" part is "yes", because some of these are probably good curse-words. I can't think how to make one of these body-part nouns into an adverb, though.)

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of life? Popular answers are the liver (hence the name "liver") and the heart.

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of emotion? Popular answers are the stomach, the guts, and the heart.

What bodypart does your conculture think is the seat of consciousness? Popular answers are the eyes and the heart; but modern Western culture says "the brain".

OK, I added upper and lower body to my post. I guess my conlang won't have a word for tear gland since it's something you can't see so the conpeople wouldn't know about it. _________________

I think you'd need things like discussion of (systematic) cultural associations (e.g. your original questions about the seat of emotion, etc.), strong cross-linguistic tendencies (always distinguishing certain body parts or not, words for the genitals being taboo/impolite), and derivation (e.g. how my conlang Old Gzho uses the same word for "arm" and "hand", but can also refer to the arm as the "hand-neck"). Also usage of body part terms for other things, i.e. verbal affixes, locative/directional expressions, etc. And investigating how changes to body structure would affect language, e.g. having no lips wouldn't just mean a lack of labial consonants - you also wouldn't be able to produce rounded vowels, which could have a big affect on the vowel inventory. _________________ Òmiç lumei ge lòmtau vi ge bleiskou, ge tiltau vi ge vighou, ge kivo vi ge prèhou.

I'm glad this thread is still around--I was thinking I might have to rederive all the Sdannískr body words, which would be irritating (and time-consuming, for that matter). I think this thread has just increased my new lexicon by half, or just about. _________________ TomHChappell wrote: Gazariah wrote: You mean the gnomic aorist.

I've got this list for a year already, but I still haven't got words for every single body part on it. On the other hand, I felt free to add some items you left out, Tom.

FWIW these items are still missing: tear gland, upper/lower jaw, thigh, shank, shin, calf, the name(s) of the toe(s), the name(s) of the finger(s), ovaries (for that matter, I could also include prostate) and, last but not least, buttock. And colloquial/slang/vulgar words for certain body parts. _________________

Which items did you add? I'm pretty sure I included, or added, some of those; tear gland, upper and lower jaw, thigh, shin, two of the toes and "other individual toes?", and each of the fingers. I'm not sure what a shank is. I didn't include the calf, I don't think; I guess I should. I included the hips; I didn't distinguish the buttocks from the hips. I didn't get into internal organs that a layman couldn't tell were there and doing things without opening up the body; so that's why I left out the ovaries and the prostate, though I include the womb and the testes.

My last update on that was July 15 on Page 4.

I was struck by inspiration about this a while back, after seeing a tea-towel that had a 64-point compass rose on it:

For the Kigdatsi native language I can invent short names for some extremity points, the font/back distinction, some horizontal "slices", and some lines through the body. It should then be possible to derive names for many different parts of the body using a system of dividing up, like compass direction names use. Such a system would be non-natural and "logical", but that is just what I want in my case.

People who want systematic body-part names are free to copy or draw inspiration from this system, of course. (I am thinking of Ilaksh in particular. How about it JQP? ) _________________ Thi sisaf akecon langbu tno onec antell. Ia mwor kingo nare aloneb utver yslo wly.

For instance if spherical coordinates (longitude and latitude) are used, and my idea of "16 points is natural in a plane" is true, there might be 128 "points" on a sphere (8 latitudes x 16 longitudes).

If a "spherical coordinate system" is used, there needs to be some way to indicate or suggest distance from the center. (If a "cylindrical coordinate system" is used, it would be "distance from the pole" that would need to be suggested or indicated.) There'd have to be at least two degrees (body vs extremity), perhaps three (body vs limb vs hand-or-foot-or-digit) or four ("body" might come in two grades, core vs "rind" or some such); possibly a human language might have five or six, I'd have to think about that; a non-human system might have more than six, or be likelier than a human system to have more than three.

Quote: Does Helleran use any of these terms, or reduced forms of them, as affixes?

Helleran has affixes for different bodyparts or body materials/substances to create neologisms (although I must work on them).

Quote: Or as verbs or adjectives or prepositions or conjunctions or pronouns?

Some verbs are derived from the words for heart, skin, ear, etc. Many bodypart names have adjectival forms.

Quote: What bodypart does the Megadelanian civilization think is the seat of life?

Not a bodypart but a microscopic life-form present in all cells.

Quote: What bodypart does the Megadelanian civilization think is the seat of emotion?

The heart, the diafragma, the skin and the stomach. But it really depends on the emotion. From the point of view of the Megadelanian civilisation all four bodyparts play some role in any emotion, although only one has a main role; it is said that that one is the leading organ.

Quote: What bodypart does the Megadelanian civilization think is the seat of consciousness?

The soul. From the point of view of the Megadelanian civilization it isn’t a bodypart but the essence of the living body. _________________ Izambri fadí carol geldi! Sis perans geu gasirant! Ia'mhrust no-Lhavindol suintil Lassenes tys sardanela eiseis armex

Hmm. I thought halfway between North and North-by-East was "North-a-half-East" rather than "North-a-quarter-East". And so on. You are making the (N,S,E,W,NE,NW,SE,SW)-by-(N,S,E,W) be half-points instead of points. _________________ Sappho wrote: The moon has set, and the Pleiades; it is midnight, and time passes, and I sleep alone.

North, north-north-east, north-east &c are the sixteen primary points of a compass. Halfway between north and north-north-east is north-by-east (that is, the next half-point east of north), and half of that (half of half being a quarter) is north-one-qaurter-east (said point being one quarter of the way from north to the next point in an easterly direction). _________________ That's RABBI Dude to you.

The system would necessarily be as irregular and wonky as the body is. Fortunately, their limbs all have the same basic structure, so analogising could reduce the set of needed roots. (It is not the same as the pentadactyl limb system.)

TBH I am not sure how I will actually do this, or how similar to the compass system it would actually be, though cylindrical co-ordinates look promising. I mean that (e.g.) there would be no root for "elbow", but something derived from "wrist" and "shoulder". And "knee" and one of the wing-joints would be the same word, with just one part changed because they are on different limbs. Or you could refer to (e.g.) "the bottom half of the upper-right quadrant of your back" in a simple way.

No. They are not even evolved, but designed. This makes them odd in many ways, though mostly good ones. It also means I will need terms for secondary brains, telekinesis organs, etc.

Why not? I included it in the expansion of the Helleran Lexicon of Human Anatomy, which I will post in this thread as soon as I complete it (what I included on my last post was based on your list): it will include more organs, bodyparts and substances, including the names for all human bones and muscles, and a deep view of every major organ system.

The list, as I will show it, represents the medical knowledge of human anatomy as it was in the time where my novels take place. _________________ Izambri fadí carol geldi! Sis perans geu gasirant! Ia'mhrust no-Lhavindol suintil Lassenes tys sardanela eiseis armex

Talanese motional/locational/temporal prepositions are derived from body parts or other nouns (note, /a/ is actually more central, and /r/ usually is a tap, but they written as such for the ease of transcription):

My apologies, this was a neat table

In, inside of - Tendet (heart) /ˈtɛndət/ Out, outside of - Twizo (shell, skull) /ˈtwizoʊ/ Around (static) - Natan (skin, bark) /natɔn/ Through (static) - Ped (stick, rod) /pɛd/ On top of, Over (static) - Miye (hair) /ˈmijə/ Above, Over (static) - Aol (cloud) /ɔβ̞͡ɫ/ Underneath - Bundu (underside) /ˈbɵndʊw/ Below - Neeza (grass) /ˈniza/ Beside, Next to - Stabed (arm) /ˈstabəd/ In front of - Danćod (chest) /ˈdɔntɕɔd/ Behind - Kee (back) /k͜xi/ At (in a place; at a moment) - Se /sə/ Over (dynamic) - Meyl (wing) /ˈmɛil/ Under, Before - Asper (water) /ˈaspər/ Through (dynamic), During, While being in - Ense (spear) /ˈɛnsə/ Past, After - Huś (wind) /hʊɕ/ From elsewhere towards here - Sitei (source of river) /ˈsiti/ Towards a specific location Ula (gaze) /ˈʊla/ Away from here - Pridas (buttocks) /ˈpridas/ Alongside - Dedomheyet (lover, lit hand-holder) /dədɔˈmejət/ < relatively recent addition to the pronoun list, con-historically Off - Away, from touching - Donin (fall) /ˈdɔnɘn/ Into (place, area, state) - Raowemelek (field of view) /rɔwəˈmeilək/ (always makes me think 'raw milk') Out of (place, area, state) - Meśa (leaf bud) /ˈmeiɕa/ Around (dynamic) - Malman (orbit) /ˈmɔlmɔn/, dynamic form of /ˈmɔlma/, hug Moving around the inside of area or place - Sefse (sniff around) /ˈsɛfsə/

--- And no, this is not a confusing system. Talanese requires articles for nouns pretty much all the time (because nouns themselves don't inflect much), and of course prepositions don't have articles. It all came to me when I was reading a rather interesting text that had something to do with perception of time, progress and motion in Mediaeval paintings in the library. Actually, my whole TAM system is built upon inspiration drawn from that! ---

As for the body parts list, well... I haven't filled out much, yet, because I've chosen to do it elaborately. I have more words for body parts than there are on this list, but I just haven't reached them yet while filling it out!

Thanks for providing it, though. Here's what I have so far (.htm converted from .doc) http://www.by002.net/~neuteboo/bodyparts.htm

I'll get there... some time!

Might it be a good idea to move this list to someplace it won't expire from, like a wiki? Maybe KneeQuickie? Or frathwiki? Or Chris Bates's linguistics wiki? Or the Conlang Wikia? Or even L&L Museum? I can move it to KneeQuickie, I think. I probably need Neek's permission first. Same with the others; maybe I can do it, but I probably need the owners' permission. But I can't move it to the Museum.

Edit: the KQ is back; it looks like he has monthly bandwidth caps, and he exceeded it in April, but it's back now that it's May. _________________ I've always been an anarcho-socialist. There should be no government, and it should pay for everything. --- seen on alternatehistory.com

Here's some of the body parts that I have in Danšlağ. I haven't really gotten specific with them, although I have got the "main" ones.

body- ri nose- nopu ear- yakušu mouth- slata eye- aslo tongue- zabu teeth- clač tonsils- kakraku neck- uxač hair- skoru head- baru shoulder- tuŵ arm- cura hand- ğeš finger- baklaŵer fingernail- baklaŵeruka thumb- kuku chest- orka breast- ğuš stomach- iču lungs- abačeraku leg- laŵe ankle- etai foot- teš toe- kuklaŵer toenail- kaklaŵeruka genital- irosi penis- bamu vagina- omaru

That's pretty much all I have so far. I'm sure I'll add more after reading this, though. _________________ It's about time for a sig-change.

What are the names of the days, months, weeks, ect in your conlang? Have you developed a special "ConCalendar"?

I will post my zzarnildarciz calendar, complete with the names of the months, days, festivals, ect ect soon, (But Im currently late for a rock show I'm playing at, so I'll post these later).

What a great calendar! I like your website. I enjoyed reading about how they use 366 days in a year, and subtract.

Here is the Zzarnildarciz Calendar:

The Zzarnildarciz calendar is an observation based solar calendar that begins whenever the spring equinox occurs. It's very accurate, but difficult to predict when leap days occur.

The Zzarnildarciz year has 365 days, or 366 days on leap year. Leap years happen whenever the spring equinox occurs after noon. The 365 days are divided into 15 months of 24 days, and five extra festival days, including new years day. Each month contains eight weeks of 3 days each.

Names of the months:

RROIVcav-cal MATTha-cav-cal ZAELPna-cav-cal TOORZcav-cal ADvaid-na-cav-cal TCCICvoitt-cav-cal zaic-loMARflid-cav-ca BONharm-cav-cal ROCloi-cav-cal MIPtzoo-cav-cal fpailNORcav-cal DDARLcav-cal aeczNILcav-cal TIRmadcc-cav-cal VADnlairttd-cav-cal

Word for Week: orlzLAC (Means literally "A group of Days").

Days of the week: TTAELbain ANTi-clivc ZINaih-glidd (People get off work on this day) _________________ gozz oTAIL ALdrae lliv oTAIL ALdrae GOZZin Translation: "It has been said - Nothing is always, but NOTHING is ALWAYS"

I haven't created the actual names yet, sorry. My conculture's calendar is lunisolar. They have a cycle consisting of 57 years = 705 months = 20819 days. Most months (374 out of each 705) are 30 days long, but some months (331 out of each 705) are 29 days long. Most years (twelve out of each nineteen) are twelve months long, but some years (seven out of each nineteen) are thirteen months long. (19 years = 235 months.) (Two of the 19-year, 235-month thirds of each 57-year, 705-month cycle are 6940 days long; the other one is 6939 days long. The two longer thirds will have 125 30-day months and 110 29-day months; the shorter third will have 124 30-day months and 111 29-day months.) So a twelve-month year is usually 354 days long but may be 355 days long; and a thirteen-month year is usually 384 days long but may be 383 days long. It's going to be complicated. I meant it to be. But I expect it to turn out a little less complicated than it looks from this description. They may not have "weeks" at all; if not, of course they won't have names for days of the week. But they'll probably have names for years. I'm thinking maybe 19 names for year-of-the-cycle, 13 names for month-of-the-year, and 30 names for day-of-the-month.

In Arta, the only thing like here are the seconds. Every other thing is different.

(E) means Earth, (A) means Arta.


Code:

1 min (E) = 60 s 1 min (A) = 50 s

1 hour (E) = 60 min (E) = 3600 s 1 hour (A) = 50 min (A) = 2500 s

1 day (E) = 24 hour (E) = 1440 min (E) = 86400 s 1 day (A) = 20 hour (A) = 1000 min (A) = 50000 s

1 year (E) = 365 day (E) + 6 hour (E) = 8766 hour (E) = 525960 min (E) = 31557600 s 1 year (A) = 768 day (A) + 4 hour (A) = 15364 hour (A) = 768200 min (A) = 38410000 s



I'll post the months soon. _________________ linguoboy wrote: Ollock wrote: linguoboy wrote: I believe you mean "Poilsh" /failed joke or dilexia, linguo? And I've never heard of "dilexia". Is that the state of knowing only two words of a language?

For Vinawasho, hours are the same length on both planets: Code: (E) 1 min = 60s (V) 1 min = 30 s

(E) 1 hour = 60 min = 3600 s (V) 1 hour = 30 min = 900 s

(E) 1 day = 24 hours = 1440 min = 86400 s (V) 1 day = 30 hours = 900 min = 27000 s

(E) 1 week = 7 days = 168 hours = 10080 min = 604800 s (V) 1 week = 8 days =240 hours = 7200 min = 216000 s

(E) 1 year = 52 weeks (+ 1 day) = 365 days (+ 6 hours) = 8766 hours = 525960 min = 31557600 s (V) 1 year = 48 weeks = 384 days (+ 1 hour) = 11521 hours = 345630 min = 10368900 s


When a leap year comes around, the extra day is added to the end of the 1st month, forming a 9 day long week.

I don't have names for any of them yet.

I play drumset. Ive been playing for 9 years. I consider myself pretty good. I specialize in jazz and rock, but enjoy playing all styles. I also play the electric kazoo, simultenously with the drums, by mounting it on a harmonica holder.

Are you a musician as well? _________________ gozz oTAIL ALdrae lliv oTAIL ALdrae GOZZin Translation: "It has been said - Nothing is always, but NOTHING is ALWAYS"

seeing as my conworld isn't a world, but the small illuminated section of the infinitely sized skin of the universe, it's really hard to think in terms of we're used to. the measure of time, a "minute" so to say, the time it takes the beam from the Lighthouse Palace to rotate one degree, ançawwè. so there are 360 ançawwè in a "day" ançà, and 1000 ançà in a "year" or "cycle" bactà

the Yionyooxscer and Esstam use a religious calendar and a business calendar that divide the bactà differently. i'll repost when i finish both. mostly it's like the mayan calendar, and has been used to predict events untill the end of time. the Aa'aan Church and the Theitspund use different calendars as well, but not as sophisticated. _________________ ghur wrote:

I've forgotten most of what goes on in my calendar. It was the most detailed conthing I ever did, though. It's all in a spreadsheet somewhere at home.

I will say what I can remember off the top of my head, though...

um.. there's 489 days of the year; 12 months (though I've been thinking about changing this to match my moons a bit better) with days in the pattern 41-41-41-40-41-41-41-40-41-41-41-40. There's two leap years every five years, on the 2nd and 5th year of each cycle, on a different one of the 40-length months, and there's a special leap year every 160 years (next one's in 2017, I think).

489 days there is equivalent to 471 (IIRC) days here, so their days are shorter by about 51 minutes (IIRC).

The days are broken up into four quarters, morning/afternoon/evening/night, each of which is 6 earth-hours long, and each is broken into 16 "hours" (equiv. 22.5 earth-minutes each), each into 18 "minutes" (equiv 1.5 earth-minutes each), and each of those into 30 "seconds" (equiv 2.5 earth-seconds each). It should be noted that while it's equivalent to 2.5 earth-seconds, you also have to factor in that the day is slightly shorter overall.

What else? Um... the week of 8 days is based on the cycle of the largest moon, which repeats every 8 days. You get the New Moon day off work, and most places give the day or two days beforehand as well.

Oh, and it was new year around a month ago, on 23rd September; it's just turned 1112 K.Z. (though I'm not sure what that stands for yet, I just like it...). So a belated happy new year to all!

The Kigdatsi use the simplest possible calendar: counting from a particular point. They count in units of the Planck time since some point I haven't decided, but which is in our late 19th century, and is the instant of their creation (by the humans in their sub-universe). 1 Planck time (the shortest physically meaningful period of time) is a rather inconvinient 5.39121E-44s, so they will often work in units of 60^24 Planck times, about 1/4 of a second to us. _________________ Thi sisaf akecon langbu tno onec antell.

The planet Ti Mahtinqmin, or better Hpimahttan IV, takes 24.98 Earth hours to complete 1 full revolution on its axis. To complete a full orbit around its host star, it takes approximately 466 days (465.98 if you want to fuss).

There are plenty of ways to count, though the most common (and thusly most pertinent) is the Qmuning reckoning (as they reckoned a lot).

First we must understand how the year is divided. The year is split into 4 parts coinciding with the 4 seasons. Each seasons takes approximately 116.5 days). The year is generally called a Qaqum, or a Span of 4 (seasons, or qate). Each season is named after one of the four stages of life, and starts with Fall:

I. Ahkninq, Birth (lit., Birth) :: Fall. II. Hsamqoninq, Child (lit., Sees-not (the path)) :: Winter. III. Tqasninq, Adult (lit., Walks (the path)) :: Spring. IV. Qmunninq (lit., Ascends (the path)) :: Summer.

(The words listed here are generally classifiers used in modern context, in reality, these were featured in finite phrases, that is the first day of the year would be refered to as, "When the year was born," or when referencing the III month, "When the year walks.")

Each season can be further subdivided into 16 smaller spans, refered to as Hsepqum, or Spans of 7 (days, or o). Not each Hsepqum, though, is seven days long. Four Hsepqum have 8 days (the last Hsepqum of the Qate), while one (the first Hsepqum) have 9. Each Hsepqum can be numbered IV to I, where the IV is the first Hsepqum. Oftentimes, however, these are named. The function of an individual calendar generally dictates the name of each month; furthermore, the names of some are more

Similar to Roman calendars, the month is not dated from the day it starts and counts up until it reaches the end. Rather, there are three days out of the month that are named, while the rest are counted from the close of the month.

The first day of the Hsepqum is called the Ahko, or Initial-Day. The day before the last of the month is called Qmunemo, or the Day Near the Ascent. The last day is called the Qmuno, or Day of the Ascent. The other days of the Hsepqum are refered to as E Qmuno and the number, or x from the Ascent So, the first Hsepqum would be:

Code: (This list also features modern names, transliterated from Hanáwenzo) (Ahkninq) Ahko (Axníngu so) Áxu E Qmuno VIII Kúno á VIII E Qmuno VII Kúno á VII E Qmuno VI Kúno á VI E Qmuno V Kúno á V E Qmuno IV Kúno á IV E Qmuno III Kúno á III Qmunemo Kúnemu Qmuno Kúnu

  • I don't have the numbers yet, I'm sorry


There'll be more about this later! _________________

unfortunantly, i lack the funds to run a website. but i will get around to posting all my conworld's info and resources. i've always like concave world theories for their sci-fi and fantasy aspects, especially things like the Thule Society, wikipedia them sometimes. that was the inspiration for an entire concave universe, with people living on the inner shell.

because of that, i wanted to craft a world centered around a giant new york or tokyo, and that became Haal, a city on a floating island in the center of the Centre Sea. in the center of that, the Lighthouse Palace is the tallest structure in the universe, able to illuminate an area the diameter of neptune, like a candle in the bottom of a large bowl. _________________ ghur wrote:

There are 379.5 days per year. These are divided into 19 months of twenty days, except on leap years (every other year) when one is only 19 days.

I havn't worked out the names yet; I'm still working on their etymologies. _________________ Wycoval wrote: Which makes a more comfy blanket - The Hobbit or Watership Down?

I have two calendars, one complete with names, for my conworld. A lunisolar calendar based on the northern solstice year; and a vernal-solar calendar.

The Wolven (Cénáre) had a calendar system consisting of four primary months of 79 days each, more or less corresponding to the different seasons throughout the year. In order, the months are: Oharel, Velókar, Adarel, Vaelar. After Vaelar, there is a seven-week "sub-month", which is used to honor the Seven Royal Lines (i.e. of the Kings of Ánovén).

Every four years (leap year), an additional day was added before these seven weeks began, which honored the first (and only) High King of Ánovén (Etheôn, of which the Seven Royal Lines were the descendants of his seven sons)

The Ánovénean New Year began on the 1st of Oharel, which corresponded approximately to June 21st (summer solstice). Each week consisted of seven days (the Wolven considered 7 to be the most sacred number), a tradition they brought with them to the Lands of Refuge (modern-day Europe and N. America) after the Lands of Émae (Ánovén and Kânavad) sunk into the ocean. _________________ Visit the Cénárol website!

They exist?! Wow!

Interesting calendar! Quote: Leap years happen whenever the spring equinox occurs after noon.

How would they determine this? A sort of stonehenge-like thing? Would that work?

The precise details of my conworld aren't decided on yet - its a planet around a real star in our galaxy [I had a few candidates a while ago but forgot what they were], so I don't know the precise length of the day year etc. But, the year length won't be too far off earth's, because in the story I have sketched out, it was chosen for it's earth-like ness. I also haven't got names for anything, unfortunately I'm having a bit of creative block in deciding how related my languages should be, and I can't get much further with them till that's resolved [have a look here if you'd liek to give me advice]. The calendar is pretty much applicable to any planet though.

The year is defined in terms of the observable cycle of four key features: ["day" here means the time betweeen sunrise and sunset, not the rotational period] the first day which is longer than the previous day, the first day which is longer than it's night, the first day shorter than the previous day, and the first day shorter than the previous night.

The year is split into 4 sections, each starting on one of those 4 key days. Each section is split up into 3 "months," giving the familiar twelve months of our calendar. But this is coincidence. The conrace involved have three fingers and a thumb, and as a result, tend to count in threes and twelves - their number systems are mostly base 12*. The lengths of the 3 months in each section are chosen such that they either (a) all have the same length, or (b) the first two have the same length, and the third is different. This means that at a maximum the last month can be 2 days different in length from the other two [better than our three day difference of 28 - 31].

The solstices and equinoxes always fall on the final day of each of the 4 sections. There are festivals on these days.

The calendar doesn't require leap years as the start date of each section is determined by the solstices and equinoxes, so it can never drift as ours would without leap days.

  • They count to 12 on the fingers of one hand by extending their fingers as follows [they have little finger, middle finger and index finger, and thumb, abbreviated as L, M, I, T]

1: L 7: L T 2: L, M 8: L, M T 3: L, M, I 9: L, M, I, T 4: M, I 10: M, I T 5: I 11: I T 6: L, I 12: L I T _________________ In Osage, Linguoboy wrote: Tengado kitaake atxãhe "I'm about to fight Tengado".

Yes - Electric Kazoos Exist. I have a kazooka http://www.electrickazoo.com/ .

I am able to play drums and kazoo simultaneously by mounting the kazoo onto a harmonica neck holding thingy.

If you want to learn a strange instrument, I reccomend you buy one - they are only about 20 bucks. You will need an amp though. The Electric Kazoo is very hard to play, since there are no discreete pitches, but it's one of the most expressive instruments availible, besides the human voice. _________________ gozz oTAIL ALdrae lliv oTAIL ALdrae GOZZin Translation: "It has been said - Nothing is always, but NOTHING is ALWAYS"
