Let’s Make a Conlang: Soleisu Week 5

<< Let’s Make a Conlang: Soleisu Week 4 | Let’s Make a Conlang: Soleisu Week 6 >>


This week, I decided I’d work out Soleisu’s verb system. Instead, I created the number system, along with a few words for upcoming sentence/grammar tests.

Soleisu’s number system is base-10. Every conlang I’ve ever created has had a base-10 number system, partially (actually, mostly) because I’ve never taken the time to learn about other number systems. I did briefly consider a base-12 number system, since those are pretty easy to understand and also in partial use in English. I also considered a base-4 system, for some reason, and decided against it because I thought it was too ridiculous.
