In Charan it depends on house, since the inheritance-laws, incest-laws etc. also varies by house.

The standard year is 576 standard days long, each day having 24 standard hours, one standard hour being longer than "our" hours. The calendar isn't more detailed than that yet apart from 5-day long "weeks". > What set of monomorphemic color terms does your conlang and/or > conculture include? Strictly speaking none of them are as they all end in |ar|, meaning color, but if you mean basic color terms as in Berlin&Kay: šiar black vyar grey fear white yár "warm" (red + the *nars and kšar) kiar red var blue mar green linnar yellow kenar brown sennar orange hfar violet (cold red-blue) kšar lilac (warm red-blue) Two colors not ending in |ar| is utarha, which is cyanish, bright and shiny, very cold blue, and pan, which is a very dull, warm, absorbant indigo. There is (so far) no word |nar|, so yellow, brown and orange are monomorphemic. > I should also ask about kinterms, since I've posted about them > recently. Parent is |faì|, grandparent is 2+faì (|ranfaì|), great-grandparent is 3+faì (|hvennfaì|)... Child is |tšan|, grandchild is 2+tšan (|rantšan|)... Ego's sibling is |nan| or |þan|, ego's ancestors' siblings are <generations removed>+|nan|, ego's descendants' siblings are <generations removed>+|þan|. That's as far as I have detailed it. t.
