I have begun a revision of omyatloko. It’s not ambitious, but I’m simplifying the majority of glyphs and using a new radical schema to order and keep track of them.

Stay tuned for updates.

Been working on this for Amal:

The full alphabet

vowels and vowel marks

Vowels are not usually written within words. /e/ has no mark and is only written when it begins or ends words. /o/ has no full form and is written over /u/ when it begins or ends words.


Comparison with Semitic abjads.


Amal family terms

In the spirit of #Lextreme2018, I’ve been working on Amal. I just added some terms for family. I’m still working on some other terms for extended relatives.

I am also closer to completion of a writing system for Amal. It is based on Semitic abjads, but functions more like an alphabet.


I have reached a point.

Not a point of no return, but rather one of contemplation. I have realized that my efforts with Kala are sporadic and ill-organized. I will be greatly reducing my posts on this blog. In fact, it may be a long while between any posts henceforth. I am somewhat unsure that Kala is becoming (or has become) what I’d intended when I started. In fact, conlanging has, for me, lost much of its wonder and joy and has instead begun to feel somewhat like a chore.

I thank anyone that reads this for your companionship on this journey.

That being said, I do intend to post, albeit much less frequently.

New Kala word
