Title: The New Word Suggestion Threads -- El Fil dels Noveux Mocts Suxhestats
Post by: Marcel Eðo Pairescu Tafial on April 10, 2020, 06:20:22 AM
Estimats membreux dal SIGN,
this is the thread where we discuss the inclusion of new words into the Treisour This is how it works: The suggestions are taken directly from the Översteir suggestion box (https://forms.gle/aZp1YYN6Qrz2oXzd6). I post them here, and then we have a vote on whether or not to include them into the Treisour. The changes are then effective immediately.

To start off, here are the first two suggestions that I received:



Talossan word: Micar
English translation: To mick
Part of speech: Verb
Context (e.g. citations for use, word origin, etc.): You know

Infinitivemicar
Present Participlemichind(s)
Past Participlemicat(s), micadă(s), michescu (-schti)
éutuo/a/çanoivoios/as/ça
Presentmichéumicásmicamichent (micameux)michetzmichent

Futuremicarhéumicarhásmicarhamicarhent (micarhameux)micarhetzmicarhent
Conditionalmicadréumicadrásmicadramicadrent (micadrameux)micadretzmicadrent
Imperative¡mica!¡michetz!

ADDED (April 12, 2020 21:22)



Talossan word: Gordò
English translation: Gordon
Part of speech: Noun (masculine)
Context (e.g. citations for use, word origin, etc.): Glüc's nickname is Gordon.

ADDED AS "Gourdò" (April 12, 2020 21:22)

Something about "micar" doesn't seem very aesthetic to me. I might prefer "miqar".

And Gordò means "fat" in Spanish, not sure if we want to go there :D Given one suggested etymology (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_(given_name)), can we go with Gourdò?

I couldve sworn that I've seen "micar" used on OldWitt, but I cant find it anymore...


EDIT: Found it (https://talossa.proboards.com/post/87508/thread). Either micéu was a typo of michéu, or it's an inflected form of a verb like micear, which has a stem ending that is completely unprecedented and would probably require introducing new irregularities -- I'm guessing its the former though.

I'd be fine with that.

If micar has already been used in practice, I withdraw my objection

Can I add micar and Gourdò then?



EDIT: Done.

Could I interest somebody from the esteemed body of SIGN to take a look at our Ohio Cjováni lexicon? We have attempted to make new Talossan words when we couldn't find them in the Oversteier. We have words like baeóuc, balineu, branocea, Caxhiesc, and cofeu, among others. I'd like if someone with more knowledge would peruse our lexicon, and maybe make suggestions/improvements. (I've just entered a few words in the Oversteiers' suggestion box.) All I need is your email address and the promise that you won't go crazy and try to destroy everything us poor Ohio Benitians have been working on. (This thing is in Google Docs)

I was amazed to find out that there is no formal title for the Leader of the Opposition on ár glheþ naziunál. In the Republic we used el Tanaïschteu, from Irish tanáiste, "successor"; in Irish it means the Deputy Prime Minister, but we took their Taoiseach to mean our speaker of the Cosa, so I don't see why we can't repurpose another Irish term.

Post by: Marcel Eðo Pairescu Tafial on September 17, 2020, 03:35:11 PM
Heres my opinion on them:

Roux, Cajun:
Assuming there arent already established words for the two, I'd suggest ros ~ roßeu (Sardinian rosso, same origin as French "roux") and Caxhïan (based on Acadzïan "Acadian", from Acadzïă "Acadia", same origin as "Cajun"). If there are words for them already in use, I'd be in favour of adding those instead obviously.

Instruments:
Switching words around is a bit weird but other than that, no objections. For sousaphone I'd suggest sousafon (based on saxofon and all the other -fon "-phone" words)

Ziluviar:
No objections.

Femnel:
To be frank, this word is my idea. There's been some sort of concensus to move more towards the African Latin Berber thing (see the The Shape of Glheþ to Come (https://talossa.proboards.com/thread/13645/shape-glhe-come) thread on OldWitt) and I've since warmed to this idea, so I figured it was weird that we have "goofy" words for masculine and feminine based on the pre-97 words for them (cióvec > ciovechesc, fru > frunal), as well as an African Latin word for masculine (maschcel < maschili) but not for feminine. Femnel is an attempt to complete the set, so to speak.

Since no one objects, I'll consider these words accepted.

Can we get an opinion on Tanaïschteu (m) "leader of the opposition"?

Thats from tánaiste ['t̪ˠaːn̪ˠəʃtʲə], right? Considering the Irish pronunciation, wouldnt *Tánischteu ['taniʃtɪu] make more sense than Tanaïschteu [tana.'iʃtɪu]?

Post by: Miestră Schivă, UrN on October 12, 2020, 05:21:15 PM
Possibly. The latter is the spelling we used in the Republic, but you're right that the former looks more linguistically correct.

Ah, if it's been in use already then I of course rescind my objection.


Wait, TalossaWiki says the spelling was Tanáischteu. What gives?

I honestly don't have a clue. The Wiki is not to be trusted, too many people edit that miéida and some of them have a trolling/disinformation agenda. And the Republic Witt is offline so I can't check it out. I advise you to use your best judgement.

Post by: Miestră Schivă, UrN on October 13, 2020, 01:51:27 AM
Since clearly I don't remember, and Republic Witt is down, I endorse Tánischteu as the reformed spelling.

Post by: Marcel Eðo Pairescu Tafial on October 13, 2020, 05:05:24 AM
I found something:

Quote from: Miestră in 2014
Eric: the Talossan word I chose for Opposition leader - amazed that there was none in the formal dictionary - was tanáischteu, from the Irish meaning "successor" or "alternative".
source (https://talossa.proboards.com/post/122157/thread)

I think Tanaischteu (no accent mark since leaving it out wouldnt change the pronunciation) is good.
