The 7th Annual State of the Language Address


It's that time of the year again. As you can tell by the post count, it was a slow year for Nevashi on the Internet, but there were some substantial advances made offline. The language grew by about 100 words over the last two months alone, and it saw more usage in short translations and status posts on Facebook this year. 

It was another horrible year for public documentation of the ever-shifting grammar. It is beginning to settle a little bit, but there will need to be a lot more "test driving" before I've got all the kinks worked out. It seems that there's another little wrinkle around every corner I turn with this language.

There's a bit of bad news: I have started a new conlang. I don't intend to entirely shelve Nevashi (or ea-luna, for that matter), but my main effort for 2014 will be toward developing Laozhea

And I still owe y'all a video/audio post. I am trying to decide between one entirely in Nevashi and one in English talking about Nevashi. I have a laptop with a camera now, so I really don't have any excuse for getting on with it. 

Anyway -- Im ceana noa yevaséd! A peaceful new year to you!
