Hallo! Tom Chappell wrote: > What kind of calendar does your conlang and/or conculture include? The classical Elvish calendar is lunisolar, based on the Metonic cycle (19 years = 235 months). There are 12 years with 12 months and 7 years with 13 months in the 19-year cycle. Each month lasts from new moon to new moon, and New Year is on the first new moon after the spring equinox. The year 1 is 1823 BC, the legendary date of the landtaking in the Isles. The actual reference point is the foundation of the _Theleca Tara_ (`High Table', a kind of arbitration council to which all Elvish polities sent delegates) in the year 815 BC, which was said to have happened "seven gross years after the Landtaking". > [calendar stuff (essentially a triple Metonic cycle) snup] > > What set of monomorphemic color terms does your conlang and/or > conculture include? So far, I have these: _mor_ black; _la˝_ white; _thris_ grey; _cras_ red; _gal_ yellow; _gver_ green; _lumb_ blue; _˝arn_ purple; _bran_ brown. > [engelangy colour term system snup] > > ----- > > We've talked about anthroponymics; I've just asked about calendars > and colors. > > I should also ask about kinterms, since I've posted about them > recently.
