And the map’s done. To note is that some of the roads are very wide and the blocks out here in the far side is substantially larger than 25 F a side. Also it looks like the trains here are much wider than what we are used to seeing. There are so many sizes of inhabitants in the city that there’s a gradation of the sizes of a block, though in most cases trains and buses keep a global minimum to the entire city.

Planetary classifications of the Jesdic Pasaru reject, or at least tries not to designate any planet, the description “unsuitable for life” or “death-world”, knowing full well that life can pop up in the least expected positions. Instead, it draws from a multitude of factors, and tries to find the best fit species – imagining if required, and deferring to the oddballs that make life if imagination fails.

I saw someone else make a pronominal inflect on tense and I decide that Hesmai Iok articles inflect on tense too. Oh boy!

When you read this, I am most likely preparing for university studies and other rubbish (such as travelling some 9.6 Mm and getting maybe a little bit homesick already). As such, there’s a nice beefy queue that I set up, but unlike the last time I left for travels I have no idea when I can start posting stuff again, so I can’t make a buffer that guarantees that there’s consistent updates every day. What happens next will depend on how well I deal with the whole “university” thing, but if all goes well things will definitely be back to normal by October.

Âagenzbèe makes a distinction between “02:29” (two-twenty-nine in the morning) and “02:29” (two hours and twenty-nine minutes) just like we do, but in a manner that’s unlike its neighbours.

Šiknwot

Egonyota Pasaru

Šiknwot, in its most literal, deadpan sense, means “compromise”. However, unlike the more common term for compromise “ȝřab_gi_sor” (literally: two (opposing parties) evens out (differences) into three (a third opinion)), šiknwot means a compromise that is chosen such that everyone hates it equally. This word can be used both as a noun (I bring a šiknwot) or a verb (The argument was quickly šiknwoted.)

Example

Á, jibsķekos_bib sbol řuud j Selšyaos k Férënhaoit;; aȝ, šiknwot ter Kelvîn!
intj, conclude.2du-not 2du choice nil Celsius and Fahrenheit – intj, compromise 1sg Kelvin.
Argh, you two still haven’t decided on using Celsius or Fahernheit!? Dangit man, I’m making an executive decision – use kelvin!
