Ñāmar gender reference

Hey buddies. In the vocab list ñāmar is listed as 3aq. (3rd type is -or), but ñāmar ends with -ar. Wouldn't that make it 1aq. like embar? Or is this some kind of crazy irregularity thing? (I noticed the agreeing adjective in the example ends in -or: "aōhor ñāmar") --Marmulak 2017-08-05 1:59 IRDT

You are correct. For the most part if a declension number seems wrong, it probably is. It seems to be one of the most common mistakes we make on the wiki, unfortuntely. --Iustinus 23:54, 6 August 2017 (CDT)


How to treat unconfirmed nominatives?

My question comes because a few sentences from High Valyrian 101 at the Making Game of Thrones Blog. Right now I am putting an asterisk before them, for example I listed *rhūqes "pigeon" (-es being common for animals) which is the genitive rhūqo in the sentence. Is this appropriate? Otherwise, feel free to comment out these entries until we receive confirmation from DJP. --Juelos 10:03, 9 May 2014 (CDT)

I generally do comment out such swords until I get confirmation. I wasn't planning to add those entries until I blogged about hem on my journal, and I'll probably hold off on editing your contributions until then too. But you did a good job overall, and it's about time that someone broke my monopoly here anyway. --Iustinus 11:38, 9 May 2014 (CDT)
I have a full draft of the post, just need to proofread it. So it will probably go up some time today, jaelaros Jaeso. --Iustinus 11:43, 10 May 2014 (CDT)

Pie

I was thinking about lōtinti... Can it be the accusative singular of a substantivized form of something like lōtinta, from a verb like lōtinagon "to bake"? Has DJP said something about it? lōtinagon > lōtinta > lōtinty > lōtinti? Since we're basically saying "(I want/I'll have/etc.) pigeon pie again, please."

And why did you list nopāzma as aquatic? Did DJP say something about it? -Papaya

I'm sure that was just a mistake. I do that all the time. --Iustinus 11:43, 10 May 2014 (CDT)
