New Section: Pronouns

The pronouns section has arrived. It can be found at the top menu. 🙂

Update: Phonology

The phonology page has been updated and rebranded. It is now the “Phonology & Orthography” page, as it now contains information about the orthography. The page has been expanded with additional information.

New Section: Plain Aspect

I have added an extensive page for the plain aspect verb derivations. This page can be found from the menu at the top of the site under “Verbs”, or it can be found from the Derivational Verb Aspect Chart on the Verbs page. I put a lot of thought into it, and it took a long time. I hope that it’s helpful and informative.

Some Alterations

So, in creating the new verb sections, I also made a few alterations to the derivational verb chart. These changes need to be updated in the example sentences on the rest of the site, so I’ll be doing that. For now, there might be some conflicting information that needs to catch up, but I’ll be clearing that up. This post will be edited with a note at the bottom when that task has been finished.

EDIT: January 22, 2018: The alterations have been completed.

New Sections: Verbs, Perfect, Protractive

Not just one, but three new sections have been added! I’ve spent many days composing these, so I hope they’ll be appreciated by at least a few people out there. We’ve got a whole new main section now:

Verbs: This page explains how verbs are built in Duojjin with a great deal of examples. This page also contains the charts for verb derivation, which includes the Tense & Aspect Derivation Chart and the Mood Suffix Chart.

Perfect: This page explains how to derive a verb construction in various perfect aspects. It also includes an abundance of examples.

Protractive: Like the perfect, this page explains how to derive a verb construction with a protractive aspect.

These pages are very important, as these derivations are critical to Duojjin grammar and semantics. Like noun case, there is rarely ever a sentence that won’t contain any of these derivations.

I used the word “word” as the primary root word for most of the examples across these pages. Admittedly, some of the examples would likely never (or almost never) actually be used, but I wanted the root word to remain consistent across all the different examples, so as to hopefully help the reader get a better idea of the meanings of the derivations. These pages aren’t meant to teach you words, they’re meant to teach you how the derivational affixes work. I hope that they can help to do that.

There’s still several more pages to be written up yet as far as verbs are concerned, but I think this is a pretty decent start.

Also, I know that I use a lot of technical terminology on the site, but I also do try to explain things in laymen’s terms. But if there’s anywhere on the site where you feel my explanations are lacking, whether technical or laymen’s explanations, please don’t hesitate to contact me and let me know, and I’ll see what I can do about expanding the relevant section.
