I'm going through 365 Conlang thingies beyond #Lexember (which is missing October...) one month a day up to August.

And now we're on to Febumantau for a second round...

and that means I can do another day! Yay!

If bikbaano is Song-Day, then the second day of the week comes from a deity we haven't visited yet.

Which means we get to see a new deity.

This one is an old deity, one of the early Ideztozhyuha gods, Oonetoonen, from the roots Oonet, The Mountain, and noonen, climb (or oonen, a sacred climb): Oonetoonen is the deity of climbing mountains, of escape, of necessary things that are hard and painful.

And Oonetoonen's day is the second day of the week, biknoonen

For Old Tongue I'm going to start with a compound word in English, bondroll -
okay, this one requires a bit of background.

If one is Kept (a magical type of submission), the praise from one's Keeper (they who Keep you), is heady, pleasurable.

If your Keeper wants, they can get their Kept essentially drunk on praise - roll them with the Keeper-Kept bond.... thus bond-roll.

And in another calque...

Bond is tish, a lock, a seal.
Roll ends up being Otef - ote means wooziness; -ef verbs the noun.

Bond-Roll, translated directly ends up tishotef

(and never mind that there was already a word for that concept in Old Tongue...)

Because when have teenagers ever left a language alone when they can come up with their own slang for it *grin* tishotef! "She's really good at using tishotef to get what she wants without orders..."

Very interesting!

Would nyoonen be a pointless climb, like Sisyphus? :D

I think I'm familiar with the concept of bond-rolling, or at least it immediately makes sense to me (being quite familiar with the setting), but I don't think I've come across that term before. It wouldn't make sense to me if I did and I'm not sure it entirely makes sense now! I don't think I've ever seen "roll" used with that meaning before--to get someone drunk, to distract them thoroughly? Do you have any other examples of "roll" being used that way?
