Yeah, that's the big problem. Translatewiki closed the translation function for the Gothic Wikipedia. They said that we have to write in Gothic letters but the users translating the wikipedia back then used latin letters. I really prefer Gothic letters as this is traditional.

maurgwaurdus[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

First of all this would be "maurgu-" because maurgus is u-stem. And second, I don't agree with this form. There is no word like "waurdus" which is masculine, the real word is "waurd" or "waurdi". But both wouldn't fit quite well. In the sense of "text" one should better use "bokos". And the sense "short+text" wouldn't match the semantical sense of "summary". Without laying the focus on German I would recommend something equivalent to "Inhaltsangabe": "innahalda-angaba". Zylbath (talk) 16:55, 26 đŒČđ‚đŒ°đƒđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2012 (UTC)

No, I really wouldn't say we should use an aglizism here. We can built that word with Gothic words. I would say it could be: feilbairgo. We already have a word for file which is "feĂ­la". I actually do not agree with this anglizism. But I don't know a better word for it for so far. The word would then mean "file keeping".

    I wouldn't use feila, since files and data are different. bandwjan means reveal information, which is close to datum/data.
With feil you are right. I don't like it either. But bandwjan doesn't mean exactly to reveal an information as we need it, it means rather "to give a hint" "to reveal a sign/mystical". What about dividing it into two senses: feil (or another better word) for computer files as what it means and for other things we could use "wairth" what data would mean in that context. "wairthbairgo" would then be a collection of data in the sense of values. Zylbath (talk) 17:35, 30 đŒČđ‚đŒ°đƒđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2012 (UTC)

Why do you eliminate the fricative /h/? I think it should stay in that word since it was in the arabic word and the Goths could have only copied the word in earlier times and then there still was that fricative. Furthermore can't it be a "-i" declension as for that the criterias are: long vowel/diphthongue, short vowel + 2 consonants or more than one syllable. This is not true for this word. So the "-i" declension can't be applied here. I would still say it is just "kahwa". The arabic word had an "-a" at the end and was female, why should the Goths change this when it fits so perfectly to their declension? Mostly those cases are preserved from the original.

For "paper clip" I wouldn't use "-binda" since this would mean something like a "string" which is wraped around a paper.

I wrote this when I wasn't that good in Gothic yet. I always use 'skeirjan' for 'to translate' because the dictionaries give that meaning. Is it a big problem that I use skeirjan without the ga- prefix? Bokareis (talk) 22:21, 20 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
I think with 'ga-' is better, but it is not such a biggy to not prefix 'ga-' to it, but it would be better to use this causative prefix. Kevin Behrens (talk) 12:49, 22 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)

So if you prefer another word, I can fully agree on this, as I have the feeling that in-meideins isn't the best translation.

  • button - hriggs (this is the word 'ring' in Gothic, if an old Goth would have lived in these days and saw a button on a computer screen, I think the most likely word he would use was 'circle', so maybe hriggs isn't such a bad word for a button, as we don't know what button was in Gothic.)
I guess I would go with the other languages that almost always use the allegory to the look of a 'button/knob'. So I'd suggest 'knuppa' mn.
The problem is that I already used hriggs everywhere.... And is knuppa attested, because it's better for us to use rather attested than unattested words.Bokareis (talk) 22:19, 20 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
That you used words somewhere else can't be always the reason for not taking another word. '*knuppa' is reconstructed and used by most Germanic languages for 'button', even in English, but with a word from French (but carrying the same semantics).

The problem is that knuppa is not attested, while hrigga is in fact attested, aren't we safer to use a word which the Goths definitely knew instead of a word which is a reconstruction while you have an alternative? A button in fact looks like a ring, so it isn't that much of a strange choice. Although, only some buttons are a circle. Can we also use hriggs for buttons in the form of a circle and for the others knuppa?

There are differences between reconstructed words. And in this case we can very surely assume that it was used as 'knuppa'. And I am still advocating for it because first almost every Germanic languages uses it and second the semantics of 'ring' don't fit perfectly with the semantics of a button, a ring is a ring and a button has more content in the middle than a ring does. A ring would be a circle but not a flat. Kevin Behrens (talk) 12:49, 22 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
  • philosophy - ĂŸagki (the noun of the verb 'waurdjan' (to talk) is 'waurdi' (talking), the verb of to think is 'ĂŸagkjan' and however we can do the same with the word economy and have a direct borrowing, I think it's better if we, just like in Icelandic, try to create original words when it's possible.)
If you'd derive 'philosophy' from 'ĂŸagkjan' I'd suggest something like 'ĂŸagkeins' fu. But even that would cover the meaning of 'philosophy'. I would go with the Greek word here: 'filosofia' fa. (Philosophy is the 'science of thinking' or 'the thinking about thinking'. To name it only 'thinking' would cover the meaning.) I would do the same with 'aikonomja' fa.
  • policy - runa (which is the word 'plan' in Gothic, as in 'Gods plan'. A policy is something which the gouvernment or an organization wants to happen, just like Gods intentions to let certain things happen, so the word 'runa' might be the most appropriate word here. The word is used here:

"the teachers of the law rejected God's plan for them" witodafasteis fraqethun runa gudis ana sik.

Don't you think that 'runa' is far too unspecialised for that meaning? It doesn't cover the meaning of 'policy' or describes it any further. It must be a word that really denotes what it means. As it is borrowed from Latin/Greek in almost every language I would go with 'politeia' fa.
  • gender - kuni (same word as family, in German we use Geschlecht and in Dutch geslacht, which etymological origin can be found here, my source is the etymological dictionary:

c.1300, "kind, sort, class," from Old French gendre (12c., Modern French genre), from stem of Latin genus (genitive generis) "race, stock, family; kind, rank, order; species," also (male or female) "sex" (see genus) and used to translate Aristotle's Greek grammatical term genos.

So, the same word as family seems legit to me.

'kuni' has rather the meaning of 'tribe' or 'race'. I would go with Germanic cognates for which 'kunja' mn. was reconstructed.
  • administrator - ragineis (We have a lot of choice here, ragineis might be the best word as it means both a ruler and a councellor, a councellor was someone who ruled a city. Ruling a city means also maintaining policies and such and not just ruling without having obligations)
I would rather use a word that comes from 'andbahti' for that has the meaning of 'administration'. So, maybe 'andbahts' ma.

I couldn't find a word for 'to authorize' so I came up with:

  • waldufnan

Based on the word: waldufni (authority), changing it to a verb by changing -i in -an.

Bokareis (talk) 22:07, 5 đ…đŒ°đ‚đŒŒđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)

We already have a word for that 'waldan'. 'waldufni' derives from that word.

I have translated 'unregister' as:

link*us-meljan

Based on the verb 'to register' which is:

ana-meljan, as 'ana' is a preposition which means 'in' here, I thought that it would be logical to take the verb 'out', which is 'us', for unregister.

Compare it to Dutch: uitschrijven, this word is used as a negation of 'inschrijven', inschrijven means 'to register' and 'uitschrijven' mean to unregister, so it's used if you don't want to be a part of a municipality anymore.

To click[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

I recommend the following neologism and old Gothic word: kramjan kramjan means 'to press' in Gothic, and not 'to press on a person', for which you also find a lot of translations. My other neologism is 'klikjan'. As Dutch, English and German have equivalents of this word too. Bokareis (talk) 21:31, 4 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)

I would go for 'kramjan', for 'click' is onomatopoeic for the sound of 'clicking'. In German and Dutch is more an anglicism than a cognate. But on the other hand I am not quite sure about its semantics. The only translation says 'to press', right. But I guess it is rather meant as 'to seize', 'to scratch' or 'to cram' (same word btw). I guess I said somewhere once something about '𐌾𐍂đŒč𐌿đŒșđŒŸđŒ°đŒœ', as reconstructed from ger. 'drĂŒcken' or nl. 'drukken'. But I am not quite sure whether that is also the best choice.

Near/Middle/Far East[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

Why modern German? If the Goths would have used their words nowadays in modern times I don't get why they would use modern high German.

I recommend something like, and correct me as I don't know how to combine words: midjis-austra. Midja-austra. I don't know how to write it. fauraasia looks rather strange to me and I don't know this in any other Germanic language, it isn't used in Dutch, not in English, not in Scandinavian languages, only in German so why would you use it in Gothic then if it is not a shared word in all Germanic languages? That doesn't make sense. Bokareis (talk) 02:03, 19 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)

I didn't say they borrowed it from German. I just used it as an example because 'faura-' is quite productive in Gothic. Gothic doesn't always have to take the quintessence from all Germanic languages and only those forms that are attested in most Germanic languages. But as I said, something with 'middle' is fine with me. The problem is just that in every language the borders between the different Asia regions are quite different and not distinct. So we have to take the same blurry definitions like in English or elsewhere.
But maybe we could find a totally different form for Near and Middle East since the Crimgoths lived there. Maybe they could have, hypothetically, taken an own word, also denoting the home of the Crimgoths. Kevin Behrens (talk) 10:56, 19 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
If that's the case we don't know it anymore. I think that it's best if we choose the Middle East in Gothic, because what we are doing here is designing a modern Gothic. It needs to be an accessible language and if we make up new words which are completely different from other languages, you rather discourage people from learning modern Gothic than motivating them. I got to idea to maybe create a website to learn Gothic in the future, but I will wait until we have some standard forms for words etc. I discourage 'fauraasia' because not only Germanic but also Romanic languages use an equivalent of middle east, like French "le moyen-orient", therefore a rendering of middle east would not only be accessible for a lot of people, but simply also the most likely. I have another question, could you change Peru in just the word we already designed, I believe it was Pairu, now it says Igkaland and no one uses it or wants to use it, so that makes it a useless word.

Mereins is a good word, but the creator of the oe eclipse dictionary came up with "sanda" and when I translated Polyglot Club I used this neologism everywhere for message. I think it isn't that bad as it's derived from "sandjan", which is changed to "sanda". It makes really clear what the word is, something which is sent. Bokareis (talk) 02:00, 19 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Okay, then we could take both words with different meaning extensions: 'mereins' is rather general and 'sanda' is clearly for electronical sent messages. So a 'sanda' would be also a 'mereins'. Kevin Behrens (talk) 10:56, 19 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Well, possible, but let's first at which definitions you want to use it for. Digital messages are sandos in plural, but Wulfila also used the Latin word aipistaule for letters, so it makes the most sense that we simply follow Wulfila in this, as he wouldn't have used that if the Goths had a word for it. So we could use aipistaule for sent messages as letters. So, would mereins become a message brought with your voice instead of in a written form? That could work. Bokareis (talk) 21:44, 20 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
There is more than 'letter' and 'electronic message'. We are speaking of the message as on Facebook and the abstract meaning of a message. I am actually not quite happy with both of the words as they actually mean something else and don't really fit to the meaning of 'message' as we want it. Maybe we should have another approach. Kevin Behrens (talk) 22:24, 20 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Well, we can get rid of aipistaule, but "sanda" is already used in so many places in my translations that it will be a hell to remove it all again. And is it really useful to remove it as 'sanda' basically gives the meaning of a sent message between two persons. But as for facebook messages etc. I agree with you that 'mereins' is a good word, as 'merjan' originally ment something like: to spread a message, to announce. And that is basically what you do. If we use mereins for personal messages too it can get confusing as you aren't spreading a message among a lot of people, but just with one person. Bokareis (talk) 22:28, 20 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Again, just because a word is used in many other occasions isn't always a reason for it. 'sanda' doesn't fit the semantics here, it rather means something like 'shipment', a package is sent somewhere (not message). 'mereins' wouldn't fit either, it would mean 'announcement' which is semantically different to 'message'. So, I would change both of them and try to find a better fitting one. But as for now I cannot think of something, I've not free head. Kevin Behrens (talk) 10:33, 21 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Well, modern English uses 'to send' and Dutch 'verzenden' for packages too, only German is different with 'schicken', but it can be used for messages too. The Goths couldn't send messages like us at the internet, so of course they didn't have a word for that. I don't really get why we can't use sandjan and sanda for sending messages at the internet.

Germans also use 'senden' synonymous to 'schicken'. I am not speaking about the verb. 'sandan' is totally fine for 'sending a message '. But calling a message 'sending' or 'sanda' looks quite strange to me, it would be 'sending a sending' then, 'sandan sanda'. As I said, we should come up with a better word. I will give it some thoughts today and tomorrow. Maybe something better will come to my mind.

Well, we have got the word aipistaule from Wulfila, so if you really think it's strange we could decide to simply use it, it's also not a neologism which would make it appropriate.

Some other words have this too though and sound fine, like gift. To give a gift doesn't sound strange at all, I agree that send a sending sounds strange, but it doesn't go for all words which are the same in verb and noun-form.

All I am trying to say is that we cannot reanalyse words with other meanings because they are just sooomehow in a neighboured semantic field. Of course, in general, it is better to stick to attested words. But in this case we don't have a real word for 'message' in the abstract sense. So, we shouldn't try to find an attested word and force it into this semantics for all one is worth. If you reeeeally want to take 'sanda', go for it. I can't forbid you to take or use it. ;) But epistaule is the word for 'letter' in Gothic, which should stay that way. It sometimes happens that an old word gets reanalysed to another meaning.

There is already a neologism for information. David Conolly has made a list with neologisms which someone else bundled for me in a PDF file.

Maybe both could be used. The notion and concept of an 'information' must be known to Goths as well, that's why they had words like 'kunĂŸi'. I am fine with a borrowing of 'information' along with 'uskunĂŸi'. All Germanic languages have different words for the concept of 'information' along with 'information'. But I am not quite sure about the form used here. 'information' derives from 'Ä«nfƍrmātiƍ' which is female (as [almost] all borrowings are).

If it would be converted correctly by Goths, then, no. It would stay as 'infaurmati' fjo. in nominative case. In other cases the /i/ turns into a /j/ plus the respective ending. 'KunĂŸi' is also possible in this semantic field but still carries a slightly different meaning than 'infaurmati' or 'uskunĂŸi'. It extends morely the meaning of broader 'knowledge', 'ufkunĂŸi' carries the meaning of 'information' that is used to inform someone about something (a bit like 'inlichting') and 'infaurmati' could be the general, abstract 'piece of information'.

As we already use 'kaĂșrjan' for 'to click' I think this isn't too bad. In order to prevent confusion it can be used. But in Dutch we have for example: 'afdrukken' when we print something. In German I believe 'abdrĂŒcken' (not sure), if it's a good idea, try to find a good alternative in which you also insert the af / ab- preposition.

Where have we used 'kaurjan' for 'clicking'? I wouldn't think that's the best solution for 'kaurjan' means rather to put weight on something that just 'press'. I thought we said 'kramjan' would be better for it.
In fact, like in German, in most Germanic languages 'to print' and 'to press' were the same words. Only later they became slightly different like in German 'drucken' and 'drĂŒcken'. Kevin Behrens (talk) 10:56, 19 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Is that the case? Oh, I read somewhere that you agreed with kaĂșrjan so I used kaĂșrjan everywhere where I needed to translate the word 'to click' because Koebler dictionary wasn't clear about it. I guess I need to change everything all over again, I will change it to kramjan. What is kramjan exactly? Bokareis (talk) 21:39, 20 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, if I said yes to 'kaurjan' somewhere else. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the different occasions or word creation. ;) That is why I would always try to do it here, unless we will find a better and easier solution sometime. 'kramjan' has the meaning of 'hit, push, pinch', so the meaning of giving little pressure (like with the finger) on a surface, in opposite to putting weight on something what means 'kaurjan'.

I recommend to not do that. German word uses are often restricted to German and the worst you can do. Try to find universal Germanic uses of words, that's why I always do. Or try to have a direct rendering of Latin. Could you add international = miththiudisks to your dictionary? I use this as it's a direct rendering of 'international' = inter (between) national (nations), miththiudisks basically has the same meaning.

I use it at my news website etc. so I recommend to insert it, as if you don't insert it, we will have different word uses in different places.

The neologism for phone is: faĂ­rrahausjands / faĂ­rrarodjands

mobile in the sense of mobile phone, could be based on the Gothic root for to move, movable.

Wigeinisks faĂ­rrahausjands = movable far-hearing.

It is surely not the worst thing to do to take a look at how German works. Icelandic and German morphology are one of the most complex withing the Germanic languages and still show the most traces of Old Germanic morphology.
Even English has 'handy' for German 'handlich'. By 'mobile' I not only meant that a phone can be mobile, I meant morely the extension of 'handy'. For the meaning of mobile in 'phones' we could maybe derive something from 'bairan' for 'to carry'. I guess that covers the meaning of 'mobile' better than 'to walk'.

"Gothic horror"[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

The ancient Goths have no direct relation to the modern literary genre of "Gothic fiction". The link is a very confusing deal: "Goth" came to mean anything barbarian or Germanic, and basically was applied to architecture and art that developed in the Holy Roman Empire and France. These people were rivals of the Goths, so it wouldn't make sense that the Goths would have used their name for what was devised by their enemies, and was also considered by everyone all around them to be barbarian. They would have distanced themselves form these art forms for these reasons, and perhaps would have called it "barbarisks" or "fragkisks". Then, it came to mean anything mysterious or romantic/wistful, and, by that extension, the literary genre that takes place in Gothic buildings and features wistful and mysterious ("Gothic") elements. The Goths, by now, would not have even used the word "gutisks" for this kind of thing, since they always called the architecture something else. Also, their own people weren't very mysterious to them, as they knew their culture and suchlike. This is assuming that they had survived into the present day. So, the literary genre would have never been, in the Gothic language, known as "Gothic". I'm thinking that, for the art form, we use one of my suggestions above, and, for the genre, perhaps we could do what German does: they call it "Schauerliteratur", which would be, in Gothic, "skĆ«ra[literature]". The French also have a name for "Gothic novels": romans noirs. We could also borrow "noir" into Gothic as "nwar". It means "black literature", and I think it makes more sense to use German or French as our basis--lots of this literature comes from those languages, and they are big countries in literature anyhow. Also, for the "Goth subculture", we might want to use something else, too, simply to avoid confusion. I can't think of anything, though, so I need others to help me with this. --Shikku27316 (talk) 17:01, 23 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)

No need to use 'nwar', swarts is already reconstructed. I think that this term doesn't have a very necessity to be thought out yet.

Alright. So, "riqizeino bokoleisei", or "riqizabokoleisei"? Which is better? (About "nwar", I figured we'd end up scrapping it. I just thought it would be pretty--my synesthesia makes that word black and murky with purple in it, so it made sense to me.) Also, what about the Goth subculture? Again, I don't think they would have gotten this name had the Goths survived as an ethnicity (though, of course, they didn't, and we have to have this make sense).--Shikku27316 (talk) 22:58, 23 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Uh, I use gutiska undar-us-met, undar (under) + us-met (behavior, or way of doing things) or would swarta-undar-us-met be more appropriate since you use swarts to refer to the gothic or horror literature? The goth subculture is influenced by this style of literature (as I am a goth myself) but I came up with a problem. If you use swarts to mean the subculture, and you call yourself a goth in Gothic, "I am a goth" (Goth. Ik im swartan) literally "I am a black" don't you think that's a little racist? I would say "Ik im gutan", this is something I wanted to throw out there. Moonspell the Goth (MēnasĂĄiĂŸjis Gutan) (talk) 00:49, 24 𐍅𐌮đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒŽđŒœđ‰đŒžđƒ 2014 (UTC)
Bokareis and I agree on using something based on "riqis" for the genre of literature, so I think the subculture should use something based on "riqis" as well. I think something like that wouldn't cause any problems. Also, we could still suggest something else--I'm not against revisiting the "skĆ«rabokoleisei" issue, even if "skĆ«ra" means "storm". I understand that lots of people have used their own ideas in their personal writing, but, as a community, we need to agree on words. I think going with the "riqis" option would help to avoid confusion. Or, we could also do something with German "dunkel" or Swedish "mörk".

I think for trans- (Latin for cross) we can use "ufar", as does Anglish, over. But Anglish terms for transsexual are she-man, he-lady, ladyboy, folkhalf shifter and folkhalf switcher. In Gothic, we could use qinomanna "woman-man", isfrĂĄujo "he-lady", ufarkuni "transgender". Though I have no clue about queer, I have derived Gothic word for gay and a gay person, but not really the vulgar term queer. The Anglish words for "to cross" is thwarse and stride over. For LGBT terms, I have skular "a gay man" (from German schwul), lesbisks (lesbian) (Germ. lesbisch, Swed. and Dan. lesbisk) Moonspell the Goth (MēnasĂĄiĂŸjis Gutan) (talk) 18:32, 6 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)
You cannot borrow words from modern Germanic languages without looking at the history of that respective word. The German word 'schwul' derived from Low Saxon 'schwul' meaning 'oppressive hot'. German also adopted that meaning, too, by changing it to 'schwĂŒl' in analogy to 'kĂŒhl'. Thus, It cannot be used to derive a Gothic word for 'queer'. But I really like this discussion and I am looking forward to other ideas. Albeit the 'concept' of homosexuality has been relatively unknown or marginal to Goths. I guess they didn't even have a word for it or used christian terminology. It has been very likely a taboo subject that nobody spoke about, thus, no real words for it, probably only paraphrases like 'having intercourse with the same sexe'. But I agree that we should find a neutral way of saying this since modern Goths of nowadays also have to overcome (religious) prejudices and face normal biology. ;) Kevin Behrens (talk) 20:56, 6 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)
It is what you call normal. About 20 years ago homosexuality was a psychiatric disease, is pedosexuality just a preference too instead of a disease? I don't want a whole discussion here, I just say it to show that it isn't that simple, philosophically. I don't have problems with homosexuality personally by the way. As for homosexuality, I think that the best alternative would be something like, read me if I say that this definitely isn't exactly a good way to say homosexuality, but I don't see any other way to say it with the attested words: " man + love " = mannafrijaĂŸwa, I think. If you want to use the Latin base-form, you can turn it into: " same + love " = " analeikafrijaĂŸwa ". As for women which love each other, you could use: qinofrijaĂŸwa.

The question is, whether you want to reconstruct an emancipation progress in that language, like going from hatred to acception. But that would be maybe too much. For we live in the 21th century and people like me are finally recognised as normal we should find neutral words for it. I guess a cognate to 'same sex love' could be taken like 'galeikakunjis frijaĂŸwa' (analeiks means 'similar', in this case I would prefer 'same') like German 'gleichgeschlechtliche Liebe' or English 'same sex love'.

Yes, homosexuals don't hurt others with their feelings so it's good that it's considered normal, that's why I don't have personal problems with it. As for genetics, it depends on what you consider normal. Even if it is abnormal, it should be accepted as people didn't choose to become homosexual and like I said, they don't hurt anyone. There are problems with a lot of groups regarding this however. Autistic people for example still aren't accepted completely while they can't really help it how they are, it's good that some first steps are made with some groups, including homosexuals. I 'm not really sure about transgenders though, it could have a very big negative impact on your life to change your gender.

The change of your gender when you are transsexual is not something you just came up with recently. It is based upon a disorder of your sexual identity. The changing is not a expression of creativity to get a new look but rather an adaption to your real sexual identity, for it didn't match your outer look before. Of course it is a big impact on your life, but for most of them it is fore and allmost a relief. And homosexuality is not to be regarded as 'acceptable' because they don't hurt anyone or despite it could be genetically abnormal. Sexuality has many ways to express, heterosexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, homosexuality etc. All of them are normal expressions of sexuality, not one of them worse or better then the others, they just differ in frequency. And homosexuality has by the way its evolutionary purposes. Sorry for this off-topic excourse, just wanted to make sure. ;) The discussion is still open for further suggestions for 'transgender', 'gay', 'queer', 'lesbian' and other words for 'homosexuality'.

I wouldn't quite enjoy using "she-man", "woman-man", and "man-woman". Transwomen, for example (burn as males but identify as women) are not "man-women", but just women. They're not "she-men" either. This is why "transkuni" or "trnsahmakuni" would be best. For "gender", why not something like "soul-kind" be better, since it describes the identity of your soul? (Also, anything suggesting "half" or "two" is out of the question, as there are more than two genders anyways.) I propose "ahmakuni". "Genderqueer" and "non-binary" could be described with "unbeinareis" or something? I don't mind borrowings here, since, unless we want a big clunky word, they'd help a lot. "Homosexual" could be "galeikaseksuals" or "haumoseksuals" (every other language in Europe uses something ike this except Greek, whose "kinaidos" could become "kinaidus" in Gothic, but it might mean something else anyway), "bisexual" could be "twĂĄiseksuals", "pansexual" could be "allaseksuals", "asexual" could be "unseksuals", "heterosexual" could be "aljaseksuals", etc. "Qinomanna" could be "androgyne" or the like, as well as, perhaps, "twisks" (adj. and noun). As I've mentioned, "neutrois" could be "niutraĂșjs" (neuter a-stem; the "-s" does not go away), or "spad" from Latin "spado" (eunuch, but repurposed). It would be a neuter a-stem. "Genderfluid" could be "ahmakuni-flƍbēreis". "Aliagender" could be "alja-ahmakuni". The neuter gender of adjectives could describe those of us who are outside the gender binary.

I'd go for 'transkuni'. 'transahma' sounds too spiritual to me for a medical/psychological term to me. By 'soul-kind' for 'gender' do you only mean the use of 'gender' in a modern emancipation process or 'gender' in general? I guess 'kuni' is short and concise. And gender is not only psychological or in the soul of someone, gender also manifests in the morphotype, the body, the chromosomes etc. (Of course in way more forms than only two.) Maybe it would be too spritual, too. 'unbeinareis' is fine for me. 'galeikaseksuals' and 'homoseksuals' could be synonyms. (I would go with 'homo-' rather than with 'haumo-' for both 'o's are long.) For 'bisexual' I'd rather say 'biseksuals' for most of the world's languages, even the Germanic ones, use that prefix. I would proceed with most of the other words like 'panseksuals', 'aseksuals' (There might be semantic difference between 'unseksuals' and 'aseksuals'.), heteroseksuals ([sic!] for it is a long 'e' and not a short one.) etc. The question is do we need a shorter word for heterosexual like 'straight' in English? Not every language has it. We could say 'heteros' for males and 'hetera' for women (like its Old Greek counterpart) as many languages just use that short form. I wouldn't take 'niutraujs' for 'neutrois' since 'neutrois' is an English invention and we could or should either take it is that 'neutrois' or use the other terms for it like 'kunilaus' or 'unkuni'/'akuni'.

Well, "kuni" can mean any type of class, such as gender, species, nationality, etc., but "ahmakuni" is the only one that describes, basically, the "kind" or "class" of your soul, which basically encompasses all of your feelings and personality. "Kuni" on its own does not denote this in particular (and, with new Tumblr identities and all that jazz, there can be multiple interpretations of the word "transkuni", such as "transspecies" and "transethnicity", so "transkuni" isn't specific enough). I'd advocate for something like "ahmakuni" in all Germanic languages, actually, since it makes more sense than just "kind" or "type". (The soul identities involved in otherkin and therianthropy can be called "saĂ­walakuni/saĂ­wlakuni" since it refers to the identity of the whole soul.) "Straight" could be "heterus" (masc. a-stem) and "hetera" (fem. o-stem), like other languages. I think it's okay to borrow "neutrois", since publications in Japanese, German, Spanish, etc. that I've seen just use a form of it. It's quite different from "non-gendered", since it's neutral, but that is the identity of a neutrois person. We have gender, just it happens to be neutral, almost between "agender" and "aliagender". That's at least my understanding. Either "niutraĂșjs" or "spad" (neut. a-stem) could work; maybe that second one can mean neutral-gender in all its forms: neutrois, agender, and genderless, perhaps. They're still very close to each other. "Niut" can be a short "slang term" if you will. "Neutrois" in that form does not conform to Gothic phonology enough, either way.And, I think that, if everyone is okay with using the Greek prefixes for "homosexual", "bisexual", etc., then it's a go. --Shikku27316 (talk) 19:49, 9 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)

Colours[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

Warning: I wrote another essay below!
"Colourful" is attested as fĂĄihs, so "colour" should be "fĂĄih", neuter a-stem. Now, as for colour words, "red", "black", "white", and "purple" are attested. I've seen "gēlws" for yellow, and "grƍneis" for green (why -eis, though?). I’ve also seen "blēws" used for blue. As for "indigo", the word in Spanish, Portuguese, and Arabic is "anil" (Pt.), "añil" (Sp.), and "an-nÄ«l" (Arabic). This would most likely become Gothic "aneils". It’s the best idea, in my opinion, since all the languages that surround(ed) the Goths used this word. For "orange coloured", I think either "gēlwarĂĄuĂŸs" (yellow-red) or "fƍngēlws" (fire-yellow) would be good. I use "fĂșnguls" for Vandalic, by the way, so just saying. Of course, the option of something based on "orange/narancio" is also available. Thoughts? --Shikku27316 (talk) 19:49, 9 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)

I would use 'farwa' for colour, since that is attested in Gothic and cognate to almost all Germanic languages. 'fĂĄihs' means rather German 'bunt'. In English you might think to much of the notion of 'colour' because the word 'colourful' contains it. I am fine with the rest except that I would rather use a derivation of 'orange' as in other languages, 'yellow-red' seems a bit too forced to me.

In my translation of Alice in Wonderland I needed to translate 'orange' and 'marmelade'. I translated marmelade as: marmalada, and orange as: "oraggs", in which the dative which I had to use was: "oragga". As orange in languages like German and Dutch and other languages often uses a long vowel instead of a short one, I recommend the use of "o" instead of "au". Is this a good alternative for orange?

(I changed the beginning message to this section, since it looked better.) Where is "farwa" attested? I couldn't find a word for "colour" anywhere. "Oraggs" would be good for sometihng relating to the orange fruit (which is what "orange marmalade" is talking about, and not the colour), but the colour could perhaps use a different word. In Swedish, I see they use "brandgul" alongside "orange", so why not the same with Gothic? We could have "gēlwarĂĄuĂŸs" and "oraggs". I'd like that, perhaps. (Also, "orange" in "orange marmalade" should be an adjective, right?) But is "aneils" good? And, why do all the ja-stem adjectives end in -eis, when they should end in -jis? I'm asking on behalf of "grƍneis". --Shikku27316 (talk) 19:57, 9 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)
As it turns out, "farwa" means "form, shape, external appearance", and not "colour". I'm willing to revisit "fĂĄih", unless anyone else wants to use "kolorus" or "lits", through analogy with Old Norse "litr". Or, of course, anytihng else. --Shikku27316 (talk) 20:58, 9 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, but I would still advocate for 'farwa'. Köbler translates it as 'Farbe' and it is the same word that is used by many Germanic languages, if not all in earlier stages. Sure, the semantical extension then was broader than today, also including the notion of 'form' and 'shape'. But still, we have a Gothic word with it for colour, even if it has synonyms. 'Farwa' goes back to Germanic 'colourful'. 21:19, 9 đ†đ‚đŒżđŒŒđŒ° đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)

centipede and millipede[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

For centipede I derived hunda-fotus (hunred-foot, as the Latin centi- (hundred) and -pes (foot) and hunda-lagjis (hundred-leg) for centipede (I recently watched Human Centipede: The First Sequence and Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence and wanted a Gothic equivalent to it's Dutch and German sisters), similar to German HundertfĂŒĂŸer (hundred-footer) and Dutch duizendpoot (thousand-leg).

New word for comment[đŒčđŒœđŒŒđŒ°đŒč𐌳𐌮đŒč]

Currently I find biquths, without any stem and without a gender, which makes the word useless if you want to use it, as the stem and gender are unkown. I don't know if it's correct though and I made these observations: This word, it means, to notice, to observe, to take notice of, the problem is that I 'm not sure if "perceive" and "notice" also apply well to this word, because perceiving something and noticing something is basically what a comment is. But it is mostly an opinion. gaumjan 16, gau-m-jan, sw. V. (1), m. Dat., perfektiv: nhd. bemerken, erscheinen (= Pass.), seine Aufmerksamkeit auf etwas richten; ne. attend to, pay attention to, take care of, see to, perceive, notice (V.), take notice of, observe. Maybe gaumeins or gaumi? Could we possibly use "mitons" which means "opinion"? Or is that not a good solution? I need to know, as I come across the word "comment" a lot in my translations.

Most languages just use something based on Latin "commentum", why not "ĂŸata kaĂșmaĂ­nto" (on-stem)? Or, based on Icelandic "ummĂŠli", we could have "so umbimaĂŸleins/umbimaĂŸlo" (i/o-stem; on-stem). --Shikku27316 (talk) 23:26, 14 đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)`
I guess we two agreed on 'biquths' ma. for 'comment'. We could include 'kaumainto' as a synonym. But I find 'biquths' quite creative, we should not miss it. Kevin Behrens (talk) 23:39, 14 đŒŸđŒčđŒżđŒ»đŒŽđŒč𐍃 2014 (UTC)
