Conlang Challenge April '12- Computer and InternetSironu Computer and Internet Terms
Thank you, whoever picks the conlang challenges, for picking my idea! I'm psyched!
But anyways, down to buisiness. When it came to making terms for the computer and internet, I didn't want to go English's route and use office terms like "file" and desktop", so I went a different route: Nature, and more specifically, trees (for the most part, though some words have nothing to do with nature).
computer- mayameqa, literally "magic machine", or arbol "tree", depending on the preference of the speaker.
password- pena "key"
to enter in a password- penen "to unlock"
to log on- akomenxen "to commence"
to log off- deshakomenxen desh- prefix indicating the opposite of + "to commence"
software- safyawaru "tree sap" + -waru abstract suffix denoting objects or tools
hardware- matwaru "wood" + -waru
Keep in Touch!
