I saw your conlang and you seem to confuse tenses and aspects

Imperfective is an aspect, Present is a tense.

Imperfective describes a view of an event, as being unfinished, ongoing etc.

Present means it happens right now, you can have imperfective past, future and present at the same time.

  1. it is customary to respond on your own talk apge if I leave a message on it
  2. Always sign with ~~~~
  3. Not that I could see
  4. Tenses and aspects are often confused, if you want I could give you a few tips on it

Oh, that's good to know since I'm not familiar with editing wikis. And help is always appreciated :)

Juhhmi (talk) 20:50, 20 March 2013 (CET)

What I suggest is doing like I did, take a bunch of tenses you want, combine them with all the aspects you want and hten go nuts on the table. For example I have inceptive (to start an action) and conitnuative/imperfective, if you start an action it will imply that you'll be doing it in the future so future continuative and present inceptive is one and the same. I also have "Causum" Which is retrospective + future/present, why? Retrospective/perfect means the action had consequences relative to a future action, why? Because for present, the event happening now, and the vent happening in the future, the consequence of this action will have to be in the future no matter what so they are one of the same in it.

Best Regards

Thank you! Those are nice ideas! I must ponder what I'll invent for my next language...

Juhhmi (talk) 20:18, 21 March 2013 (CET)

You're welcome, I always suggest you think about implied meanings because those will leak over onto the real meanings, thats usually how they start replacing one another :) Zelos.png Emperor Zelos 21:13, 21 March 2013 (CET)


Hi Juhhmi! I would recommend you to use the nomenclature "Rinap/Dictionary" for the English-Rinap lexicon. :) Waahlis.png Waahlis 21:37, 3 April 2013 (CEST)

Oh yes, sorry... But is there an easy way of changing the title or should I create a new page with the name?

Juhhmi (talk) 08:09, 4 April 2013 (CEST)

Yup, there's an easy way: Just press the downwards arrow in the right corner and press "Move". :) Waahlis.png Waahlis 10:24, 4 April 2013 (CEST)

Great! :) Juhhmi (talk) 17:36, 4 April 2013 (CEST)

School of Waahlis: Lesson XIV: Links

Ciao! I noticed your link at Rinap/Dictionary to the Rinap page. The formatting was rather dA in its form; on wikis we use the format [[Page name]] for any internal links (i.e. to pages on the wiki), and the one you used for external links. In addition, we've got quick versions to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, namely [[w:Page name on Wikipedia]] and [[wikt:Page name on Wiktionary]].

Hope it helps. :) Waahlis.png Waahlis 20:26, 4 April 2013 (CEST)

Aah, wonderful! :) I bet I saw it before, but completely forgot! Juhhmi (talk) 18:56, 5 April 2013 (CEST)

New language

New language, excellent! May I recommend you to mabe not list cases and such in the text? You could make bullet lists instead? :)

Sincerely, Waahlis.png Waahlis 16:52, 17 June 2013 (CEST)

Yes, finally... And thanks for the tip! When I'll find time (tomorrow), I'll create subsections where those shall be listed as well as inflection tables, but I just wanted to reveal them to those who'd come across the site. :) I should also add glossing for my Rinap story (which might reveal whether I made some mistakes).

Juhhmi (talk) 20:59, 18 June 2013 (CEST)


Stop being so damn productive! :P Waahlis.png Waahlis 17:37, 6 July 2013 (CEST)

Third Linguifex Relay

Hey, I'm tentatively done with my version! I'm missing a few glosses from De Graut Bur, but you should be able to at least do the first two verses! Some words may be subject to change as I did my best educated guess without a gloss to use, but I believe I'm right. Darthme (talk) 22:40, 1 March 2014 (CET)


I got the glosses for the words I needed. There are three new ones in my translation:

denne instead of dit (l.3)
de' for –––– (l.24)
triste for ––––– (l.24)
Darthme (talk) 20:22, 9 March 2014 (CET)

Great! Thank you! :) Juhhmi (talk) 15:04, 10 March 2014 (CET)

IlL (talk) 14:35, 8 July 2015 (CEST)

Sorry, forgot to mention... The dative case can be used instrumentally in Classical Wiobian poetry. IlL (talk) 23:29, 8 July 2015 (CEST)


Hi Juhhmi! If Greatbear doesn't respond in two days from the 10th/of July (Finnish time), I give you the authority to pass the relay to the next one on the list!
