This is a web showing relationships between the meanings of a number of words in Glaubaal. The links between them are a little arbitrary, I’ll admit, but it’s a fine way to illustrate the ways in which words which are similar semantically can also be similar phonologically. It’s also a great way to motivate me to fill in a conceptual space to cover more ground.
More semantic webs will follow as I complete them. It’s very motivating to have a large number of small goals to complete, instead of staring at all the blank space in my lexicon and feeling overwhelmed.
