Logogram List

So I have added a page to list the logograms of Omyatloko. There are currently 350 logograms, with more being added every week. They will always be sorted alphabetically, but with supplemental lists sorting them by topic being added occasionally.

I am currently revising Kala vocabulary and this project is greatly influencing Omyatloko, so, stay tuned for updates,

Lexical change

I’ve been reviewing and editing a few lemma over the last couple of months, and one notable change is due to phonological similarities to other languages.

nye…ka to ask “Why?” is being replace with nyo…ka. It may seem like a minor change, but it alters the flow of many questions.

Midterms

As we (in the US) inch closer to the Midterms, it is our responsibility as citizens to disallow the politicians of their seemingly incurable appetite to ignore those issues that truly make a difference in our quality of life.

Those issues are different for each of us. Don’t be afraid, don’t blow it off, don’t forget, Vote!
