to be (to exist) is ozal (revisited)

ozalozal = to be (verb "to be/to exist" - to be - infinitve) (some things Google found for "ozal": a very common term; similar Özal (or Ozal) is an uncommon last name, notably former Prime Minister and President of Turkey Turgut Özal; name of a character in Clash of the Titans (2010); an unusual first name; Özal Group is a Turkish conglomerate; means "ago, before" in Turkmen)

Word derivation for "to be/to exist":
Basque = izan, Finnish = olla
Miresua = ozal

This is the other verb to be, to be/to exist, the infinitive form. Similar to the Spanish verb ser. My previous Miresua word for "to be/to exist" was olna. I'm changing this word because the LN consonant combination was odd. Having a Z in the new word will remind me to treat this verb like the Basque verb izan.

That's enough verbs and verb conjugations for now. Next month, something different.

to be (to stay) is elga (revisited)

elgaelga = to be (verb "to be/to stay" - to be - infinitive) (some things Google found for "elga": a common term; an uncommon feminine first name related to the name Helga; ELGA Credit Union in Michigan; ELGA LabWater water purification systems; an uncommon last name; "Mucho Mungo / Mt. Elga" is a song by Harry Nilsson co-written with John Lennon)

Word derivation for "to be/to stay":
Basque = egon, Finnish = olla
Miresua = elga

This is the verb, the infinitive form of the verb "to be/to stay". The verb elga, like the Basque verb egon, is used for more temporary states of being, such as "I am in the house". Usage will be similar to the Spanish verb estar. Previously this Miresua word was algo. I changed this word to start with E, to be like most conjugations.

22 April 2011

are (they are) is evaut (revisited)

evautevaut = are (verb "to be/to stay" - they are - 3rd person plural) (some things Google found for "evaut": an uncommon to rare term; an unusual last name; user names; similarly named EVault Data Protection Software)

Word derivation for "are (they are)(to be/to stay)"
Basque = daute, Finnish = ovat
Miresua = evaut

My previous Miresua conlang word for "they are (to be/to stay)" was aved. I think the new word is a better mix, and it contains similarities to both the Basque word and the Finnish word.

18 April 2011

are (you all are) is elaute (revisited)

elauteelaute = are (verb "to be/to stay" - you all are - 2nd person plural) (some things Google found for "elaute": an uncommon to rare term; an unusual last name; user names; similarly named El Aute de Amar is a music album by Adriana Landeros & Carlos Diaz "Caito")

Word derivation for "are (you all are)(to be/to stay)":
Basque = zaudete, Finnish = olette
Miresua = elaute

My previous Miresua word for "are (you all are)(to be/to stay)" was aldote. The new word, instead of having a consonant combination, has a vowel combination, like the Basque word.

14 April 2011

are (we are) is elage (revisited)

elageelage = are (verb "to be/to stay" - present tense - we are - 1st person plural) (some things Google found for "elage": an uncommon term; an ususual masculine first name that can be from Senegal, Elage Mbaye and Élage Diouf are Afro-Beat musicians; a rare last name; Rio Èlage is a stream in Guinea-Bissau)

Word derivation for "are (we are)(to be/to stay)":
Basque = gaude, Finnish = olemme
Miresua = elage

My previous Miresua conlang word for "are (we are)(to be/to stay)" was aldome. In the new word I deliberately use the g from the Basque word because "we" in Basque is "gu" and this Basque verb conjugation begins with g. I use the m from the Finnish word in the 1st person plural conjugations of the other verb to be.

10 April 2011

is (he/she/it is) is ado (revisited)

adoado = is (verb "to be/to stay" - present tense - he/she/it is - 3rd person singular) (some things Google found for "ado": a very common term; in English ado means "to do; doing; trouble" and is mostly used in set phrases such as "without further ado"; Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy play by William Shakespeare; ADO is an acronym for ActiveX Data Objects; an uncommon masculine first name; an uncommon last name; in French ado is a colloquial term for "teen, teenager" (shortened form of adolescent); name of cities in Nigeria, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Sudan and Afghanistan)

Word derivation for "is (he/she/it is)(to be/to stay)" :
Basque = dago, Finnish = on
Miresua = ado

My previous word for "is (he/she/it is)" was ango. One reason for the change is because neither the Basque word or the Finnish word have a consonant combination.

I know that the other conjugations of this verb start with E. Unfortunately I have no E available in either the Basque or the Finnish word. I decided not to cheat with letters to make this word edo.

My other word for is, from the other verb meaning to be, is oda. Interestingly, that's an anagram of ado. Or ado backwards.

06 April 2011

are (you are) is ezte (revisited)

ezteezte = are (verb "to be/to stay" - present tense - you are - 2nd person singular) (some things Google found for "ezte": a common term; D-EZTE Cessna 172 SP and G-EZTE easyJet Airbus A320-214 airplanes; user names; EZTE driving range turf; a rare first name or nickname; a rare last name; similar word este means this in Spanish)

Word derivation for "are (you are) (to be/to stay)" :
Basque = zaude, Finnish = olet
Miresua = ezte

This new word is a major revision. My previous word for "are (you are)" was aldet. My new word looks more Basque, what with that ZT consonant combination, but it's actually an equal mix of letters from the Basque and the Finnish words.

02 April 2011

am (I am) is egon (revisited)

egonegon = am (verb "to be/to stay" - present tense - I am - 1st person singular) (some things Google found for "egon": a very common term; a masculine first name which is a variant of the name Eugene, notably Austrian painter Egon Schiele; an uncommon last name; a fictional country in children's novel Under Plum Lake; Mount Egon is a stratovolcano located on the island of Flores in Indonesia; verb meaning "to be/to stay" in Basque; name of cities in Brazil and Equatorial Guinea)

Word derivation for "am (I am)(to be/to stay)":
Basque = nago, Finnish = olen
Miresua = egon

I'm redoing the Miresua verb conjugations for the verb "to be/to stay" in the present tense. This is a do over. I like to think that I know more what I doing with this conlang now. Miresua has two verbs for "to be", like Basque but unlike Finnish and English. Similar to the verbs ser and estar in Spanish.

My previous word for "am (I am)(to be/to stay)" was alon.
