I've been during Lexember, which is the conlang version of NaNoblahblahblah. A new word for your conlang each day. I figured I should post it over here too, but I forgot until now.

I am doing words for two languages: Sinnish (a personal language which I have revised MANY times), and Asuran Rhetorical Alchemy (a language I am making for the Asuran people from Guild Wars 2).

Here is Day 9 (I put links to my posts on G+ for the earlier days - no log in required).

Day 9

Sinnish: gemio /ge.ˈmi.o/ - n.c. - earth - a medicine, a substance used to improve the health of something (things like furniture polish, motor oil, and drain cleaners are often referred to as this as well)

Rhetorical Alchemy:
boonegihks /ˈboo.nɛg.ɪks/ - noun - failure
This word was one of the first to be 'organically coined' (that is, developed in usage in the way natural languages gain words) after the initial publishing of the The Concordance of Rhetorical Alchemical Meaning (the definitive lexicon of the language). It's original derivation was boom-neg-iks: fault-1ST.POS-NEG, literally "not my fault". It was repeated so much in early discourse that it became subject to semantic drift to what it means today.
