Here, for the use of the Gnomic developers, is the comprehensive (I hope) list of Gnomic as it exists (with a few words filled in or added as they can be surmised - all such 'not on site words are marked with [brackets] ) on the site so far.  Enjoy and begin adding to it with the rules we are trying to sort out!  (Sorry, can't make tables...)

delg – why
durg – who
 wan - what
(kroguk - when)
(hegit*  - how much / many
hegitguk - how often
 hegit*  - how old ) - don't know why there is a duplicate word here, have to sort that out!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Right!  You've now got everything I have, except the new words in the other thread, which should get collected and moved in here so that the other thread stays as grammatical discussion and proposals.   AFAIC, any vocab that's been proposed there is fine as long as it doesn't conflict with this list or duplicate words on it.  Check here, then move it over!

Just a thought - where are we going to show the various forms of the verbs?

Anyway, I have an idea for 'mirim.'

mirim
to reflect

mirimzer - to reflect something
mirimzergar - to reflect someone
zermirim - ?

mirimzor - to resemble something
mirimzorgar - to resemble someone
zormirim - ?
garzormirim - to ponder

mirimziir - familiar

I'd be very tempted to shove them all in the list, one beneath the other, WHENEVER THE CONJUGATION HAS ITS OWN SENSE.   If the various suffixes merely conjugate (I reflect, you reflected, she will reflect, etc.) there is no need to list them as separate 'words' - they do not have a discrete meaning of their own.  But where they change the sense, as in 'I reflect / I resemble', obviously they should be listed with their matching Tharian concept.    Work for you?

Thanks for 'mirim'!  I'll fix/replace that in the main list above.

The MasterBard coined a new Gnomic word for use in my Forget-Me-Nut entry, It as also used in Tharian.

Quote
One can speak of a person's fingers, for example, as being 'nakhoid' in appearance... somewhat spatulate yet bulky.


It describes the shape which in RL we know as a segment, from an orange, say. Or that of a Brazil nut.

Use the force, Luke.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

From the discussion about Deklitch's "Goal ball" entry:

gabumbim (verb): to bounce [an old gnomish word, loved by gnomish children for its onomatopoetic and tongue-twisting qualities]

gnogum (noun): a rubber-like substance (the result of attrition from the original: "gno-gabumbim": "substance that bounces")
