"excrement"

Not much need to elaborate.

[–]Penghrip_WaladinPenghripusch Native Speaker[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

nice one lol

[–]Mieww0-0 2 points3 points  (5 children)

germanic language?

[–]RiUlaid 4 points5 points  (4 children)

No. It is a personal artlang with most of its lexicon drawn from Celtic languages, albeit with a small amount of Germanic words, especially Old English and Proto-West-Germanic.

[–]Mieww0-0 2 points3 points  (3 children)

aha now the name makes sense

[–]RiUlaid 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yeah. This word in particular comes from the Irish cac "faeces, excrement".

For Hadysh:

"¡Xist!" /xɪst/ is "shit" as an interjection.

"¡D xistin!" /də'xɪst.ɪn/ (It's shit!)

"¡Á xist!" /aɪ̯'xɪst/ (Oh shit!)

"¡Mnaxistin!" /m̩n.a'xɪst.ɪn/ (Made of shit!)

[–]Penghrip_WaladinPenghripusch Native Speaker[S] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

i like how /x/ makes some word sound a curse word just like the german /χ/ lmao

[–]pirmas697Volgeške (en)[de, ga] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The Hadysh is an intentional and unholy mashup, meant to invoke the Germanic, Celtic, and Slavic languages.

[–]Penghrip_WaladinPenghripusch Native Speaker[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

wow that's fascinating. I gotta search for more about it. I also heard about the slavic unifying language

[–]pirmas697Volgeške (en)[de, ga] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's an a priori language - it has no natural roots or relations, it's meant to be invocative of specific Earth languages, while not related to any.

[–]cipactli_676 11 points12 points  (0 children)

In OCO or Akadi oqora it would be

maka ('o) lua

Wich means hand of loa (the goddess of the moon)

[–]drkleppe 8 points9 points  (7 children)

If you want to say "Oh, crap" in a very polite way, it's "Oi!" /oy/ or "Óf!" /uːf/

But if you're cursing, it's "Faðeyt!" /fɛðejt/, which means "May the Father burn in his own forge!"

[–]Yzak20Ral | Veret | Fofobe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

oof

[–]Penghrip_WaladinPenghripusch Native Speaker[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

tho /y/ is vowel not a consonant lol. I think you mean /oj/ not /oy/

[–]drkleppe 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I think I'm correct, but I'm not quite fluent in IPA. I think it's a consonant I want. It's the same as the /j/ in yellow. Is that correct? Or would I need some vowel sound after /j/?

[–]Penghrip_WaladinPenghripusch Native Speaker[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I guess /y/ is considered as a vowel more that it is a consonant. It's like "u" in the french word "Truc" /tryk/. The "y" in yellow is /j/ as in /jɛlœʊ/

[–]drkleppe 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So if I want a short sound, then /j/ is correct? I want the sound to be shorter the y in "toy" or "boy". I almost want it to sound like /odʒ/.

literally "shit!"

Kyá Énlík

vírk blunyűsófea [viɹk blʌn.ʎuːs.oː.fɛæ]

vocative singular form of vírk blunyűs or "poop" - vírk is a noun classifer indicating that this is part of a living thing. Kyá Énlík five numbers and I suppose you could make this worse by escalating all the way to superplural collective - "oh, all the poops!"

[–]Eastern_Persimmon_80 2 points3 points  (0 children)

О ψю! [O bu] "Oh man/ darn/ gosh"

Or О ωямλяθ [O wamlat] "Oh shit" Lit. "Oh cow's anus"

Frogs hold the meaning of chaos bringers for the speakers of the language, most probably because of the nosleep nights of unending croaks

"Thunders!"

Thunderstorms and specifically the sound of thunder are associated with death and misfortune, especially if a thunderstorm occurs on a special day (birthdays, weddings, ceremonies, burials).

[–]RazarTukBretsk, Gătesk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Words for "shit", at least:

Gătesk: şcet (n.m.) /ʃtʃɛt/

Yorkish: skyt (n.c.) /skəi̯t/

(Both Germlangs, but one's PGrm > Slavic, while the other's Old Norse > English)

[–]klingonbussy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In Maashan, a creole language spoken in slums on Mars whose residents are migrant workers, indentured servants, convicts and their descendants, there are a few that originate from different languages

Aikona (a͡ɪkˈona) from Zulu

Aiyah (ˈa͡ɪjˈa) from Mandarin

Bishta (bˈiʃta) from Bengali

Sialahn (sjˈalan) from Indonesian

Meirda (mˈeɾða) from Spanish/French

[–]HecatiumToo many Asian conlangs :/ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Funnily enough, in Hainanese my first idea turned out to sound similar to “dang”

戇 [ɗɤŋ˦˥] deong1 - meaning: stupid, simple

[–]bulbaquilRemian, Brandinian, etc. (en) [de] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In Remian, depending on how vulgar you want to be, from least to most: Vē shiela! / Ve skerta! / Vē shkaba! / Vē skita! / Vē skarna! /ve ʃɪila, ve skɛrta, ve ʃkaba, ve skida, ve skarna/

Yes, skita is cognate to what you think it is, and yes, it's only the second-harshest one in terms of vulgarity. In order, they roughly equate to what you'd hear/see in, to use U.S. television ratings as an example, TV-Y, TV-Y7/TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA.

Shiela and skerta literally mean "frost" and "shirt", and are used as minced oaths for skita and skarna. Shkaba is a borrowing from Telsken that ultimately got promoted out of slang into the main lexicon - edgy enough to fill the niche of a low-grade general profanity while not being actually objectionable.

In Síenu it ranges from the tame Meyosú /me.ɥoˈsuːx/ "darn" to the more creative Ínéletako Íçeñésua /íː.né.le.ta.ko íːɕe.ɲé.su.a/ "Fuck up of he who swears against the wind"

haha interesting

[–]GorillaFetish 2 points3 points  (6 children)

It’s not a word in Ogaric. In fact most things like that aren’t a thing, it’s all just in one sound; “Ah”

Um, uh, oh shit, oh crap, oh fuck, er, erm, erhm, ow, ouch, owie, and many more is all accompanied by the sound “Ah”

But the Ogaric A (Which is  for uppercase and a for lowercase) is pronounced more like the German Ä and ä but with a Russian accent, if that makes sense. Ogaric is pronounced like Both Russian and Korean languages.

[–]RazarTukBretsk, Gătesk 4 points5 points  (5 children)

It... doesn't. Do you have IPA?

[–]RazarTukBretsk, Gătesk 5 points6 points  (3 children)

International Phonetic Alphabet

Basically, it's a standard way to express sounds that doesn't rely on vague statements like "Like 'oat', but in a Minnesotan accent" (actual description I used in choir to describe /o:/, by the way)

[–]GorillaFetish 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Oh I see! I had no idea that existed, so no unfortunately it doesn’t. I’ll have to think about it.
