PostPosted: Mon Jun 29, 2009 2:35 am    Post subject: ra cel Reply with quote

I think I've finally put this together enough to post. (^_^) Hopefully. It's quite long, and I've put the Tower of Babel translation at the end. When I have a long moment I'll try to write it in script and post a picture as well.

First a little background: ra cel is the language of the Glimadh, or a race of fairy-nymph people who consider themselves to be the first branch of their kind and therefore are very haughty about it. They like to shun the Tadvrad especially, but aren't really on good terms with the uTimig (branch that lives in the south) or the groups that have broken off from them either. Genetically speaking the Glimadh aren't actually the first, but who's going to tell them that when they won't listen?

And so, we'll just pass over that and move on to the point of this thread.


Phonology:
a i u e y o w b d gh m s bh dh n t c f j nm th ch g l r v
[a i u ɛ ɪ o ɯ p ɾ x m s b n t k f ʥ nm/n: θ kt/ʃ g l r v]

Note that /nm/ is said [nm] when followed by a vowel, though it may become [nn] when speaking quickly and always is [nn]/_#
The same goes for /ch/, as [ʃ] word-initially and sometimes finally, as [kt] followed by a vowel, but [kt] where the /t/ is an unreleased stop word-finally, rather like English "act" (though I'm sure plenty of people pronounce the /t/; I personally don't).
/w/ is a voiced bilabial fricative word-initially, and /y/ usually becomes muted or [h] between vowels.

Vowel diacritics:
- // is a leftover from an older state wherein it had only grammatical properties, but now has replaced //
[ ə ]

[ʲa ʲi ʲu ʲɛ ʲɪ ʲo ʲɯ]

[ɨ ʉ ə ʌ/ɔ ʊ]
ŷ ŵ
[a: i: u: ɛ: ɪ:/y: o: ɯ:/ʌ] - ŷ and ŵ take the second pronunciations dialectally.
Semivowels:
ẅ h ll
[ɹ h l:/ɫ:] - /ll/ takes the second pronunciation following /a/ or preceding /i/ or /e/, and word-finally.
Diphthongs:
a/a [aə]
aẅ [aɹ]
/ [ʲaə], ẅ [ʲaɹ], [ʲa:]

ia/io/i [ia/io/i]
iẅ [iɹ]
i/i [iʲa/iʲo]
i/i/i [iə]
i/i [ia:/io:]

ui/wi [ui/ɯi]
ue/we/u/w/u/w [uɛ/ɯɛ/uə/ɯə/u/ɯ]
u/uẅ/w/wẅ [u/uɹ/ɯ/ɯɹ]
/u/ through /uẃ/ (pre-palatalization neutralizes low-high vowel relations), /w/ through /wẃ/
u/u/uẁ/w/w [uɨ/uə/uʊ/ɯɨ/ɯə]
u/u/uŷ/w/w/wŷ [ui:/ue:/uy:/ɯi:/ɯe:/ɯɪ:]

ei/eo/eẅ [ej/ɛo/ɛɹ]
/e/ through /eẃ/ (pre-palatalization neutralizes mid-low relations)
e/eẁ [ɛɨ/ɛʊ]
e/e/e/eŷ [ei:/e:/ɛo:/ɛɪ:]

/o/ is not a permissible diphthong head.
It can be assumed that lengthening of either vowel in a given diphthong is permitted; e.g. /ui/ /u/ /i/ //

Geminates:
lr/ld/rd [ɾ:]
ll [l:/ɫ:]
rr/nn/ss/tt [r:/n:/s:/t:]


Grammatical points:

First of all, ra cel follows these orders:
VSO, ADV-V, article-N
Adjectives, described below, are a variable, and prepositions have varying positions as well for example, and can occur as a prefix or between two words as a syllabic consonant.

Pronouns:
I /dle/, /l/ we /li/ me /dl/, /l/ us /log/, /lg/
You /thli/ you /bhra/ you /th/
He /rwc/ him /rc/
She /n/ they /bth/ her /n/ them /bhth/
It /dhẅ/ they /sd/ it /dhẃ/ them /dhs/

Possessive pronoun adjectives: Possessive pronouns:
My /na/ out /gnm/ mine /nagh/ ours /gugh/
Your /ath/ your /hbh/ yours /athi/ yours /hgh/
His /cr/ his /crd/
Her /nan/ their /j/ her /naj/ theirs /sj/
Its /sb/ their /dh/ its /sibhi/ theirs /dhegh/

Note that the possessive adjective forms must take an adjective particle; see below under "adjectives."

Reflexive pronouns:
Myself /ld/ ourselves /ll/
Yourself /thl/ yourselves /cẃd/
Himself /tibh/
Herself /hbh/ themselves /gnm/
Itself /jn/ themselves /loẅ/

Nouns:
When nouns are identical to a verb in any of its various forms, the noun takes the particle /t/ preceding it; this particle appears only when the noun and the verb occur in the same sentence, and generally can be omitted altogether except in writing and classrooms.
Noun-noun pairings are permitted (e.g. tree-house /b-hyln/). Tense can be incorporated with the following morphemes:
Present /-aẅ/ past /-i/ future /-ui/

Examples: (using kitten /dertha-la/ and cat /dertha/)
A kitten that will be a cat dertha+ui dertha-la --> derthui dertha-la
A cat that was a kitten once dertha-la-i dertha --> dertha-li dertha
A cat that is a cat (i.e. catlike) dertha-aẅ dertha --> derthẅ dertha

Nounalization morpheme /sa/ /ca/ is suffixed to adjectives:
e.g. bytf [pɪtʲof] hard --> bytsa/bytca [pɪtʲosa/pɪtʲoka] hardness form by removing adj. morpheme and attaching nounalization morpheme.

Nounalization morpheme /sag/ /sagh/ is suffixed to present progressive tense of verbs:
e.g. chmu [ʃʲɛməu] running (run-PP) --> chmusag/chmusagh [ʃʲɛməusag/ʃʲɛməusax]
The nounalization morpheme occurs also as an introduction to subordinate clauses in writing; generally these are left out in modern spoken ra cel:
I know that he likes her mahj l sa wr rwc n [mahʥlʲisaβrrɯkni:]

Articles:
Articles include the indefinite (definite is inherent), quantitative measures, and demonstratives:
Article isolated morphemic units
a/an ni n-, -n-
that icah ic-, c-, -i
this um -, m-, -m-
some (type) dr
many/some vt this is a generally exclusive word (e.g. some people when not thinking of oneself)
few odh this is a generally inclusive word (e.g. a few people (like myself))

Adjectives:
Generally end in any of the following; /i/ /if/ /ir/ /r/ or /a/. Color adjectives are always irregular in that they end in consonants, and also serve as nouns when lacking an adjective particle (e.g. green (adj.) by itself means something more like greenness). There are four tiers of particles which identify an adjective with a given noun, and they generally fall after the adjective (though some dialects place them before). The tiers are divided according to the number of the noun carrying the adjective (e.g. tier one identifies with the first noun, tier two with the second, etc.). The particles exist because adjectives can go anywhere in a sentence.
Tier 1:
1st A 1st N - /i/
2nd A 1st N - /in/
3rd A 1st N - /il/
4th A 1st N - /iẅ/

Tier 2:
1st A 2nd N - /a/
2nd A 2nd N - /an/
3rd A 2nd N - /al/
4th A 2nd N - /aẅ/ --> not to be confused with the noun tense /-aẅ/

Tier 3:
1st A 3rd N - /u/
2nd A 3rd N - /un/
3rd A 3rd N - /ul/
4th A 3rd N - /uẅ/

Tier 4:
1st A 4th N - //
2nd A 4th N - /n/
3rd A 4th N - /l/
4th A 4th N - /ẅ/

Through this tier system youre restricted to a max of four nouns with four adjectives apiece, though ra cel speakers do permit a lack of a particle for a fifth adjective, though its noun identification becomes ambiguous. In writing this can be manipulated through use of punctuation; commas, or breaths, mark sections in which the tiers can be reset, and stops serve the same purpose both in writing and speaking. Numbers immediately follow the noun and dont take a particle.

Diminutives:
There is a diminutive adjective, /la/, for living things, and which usually suggests a smaller or younger version of a particular noun:
cat /dertha/ --> kitten /dertha-la/
man /bht/ --> boy /bht-la/ this is the word for a prepubescent male; there is another word boy /hẁrro/ which pertains more to adolescents and young adults. The same goes for females; woman /dja/ --> girl /dja-la/ and girl /mbhi/.

There is a diminutive prefix /l/ for nonliving/inanimate things:
rock /loch/ --> pebble /lloch/

There is a nesting diminutive suffix, /ec/, which applies to smaller units attached to a larger unit of a similar shape, for example arms to fingers or legs to toes (the arm includes the wrist and metacarpals, and the leg includes the tarsals and metatarsals), or a tree trunk to its branches:
arm /cnyl/ --> finger /cnylec/
tree-trunk /herd/ --> branch /herdec/ /e/ is not a conventional diphthong, and [ə] generally does not become long.
river /flv/ --> stream (runoff or tributary to a river, not an individual stream) /flvec/ (vs. stream /urrul/)

Superlatives:
The superlative is shown through prefixation of /h/, from /heo/ most.
hrelẅasa [hʲorɛlɹasa] most dangerous

The pre-superlative (/-er/) is shown through prefixation of /we/, from /wef/ up.
werelẅasa [βɛrɛlɹasa] more dangerous

There is also a sub-superlative, meaning less - /cw-/, from down /cẁv/.
cwrelẅasa [kɯrɛlɹasa] less dangerous/not as dangerous (as it could be or is expected)

Negation:
Negation of anything, whether its a noun, adjective, or verb, is shown through following the word to be negated with /gyn/, a variant of no /gynj/.
Not a cat dertha gyn [ɾɛrθagɪn]
Not lonely niar gyn [niargɪn]
Doesnt go ch gyn [ʃi:gɪn]

Prepositions, conjunctions:
Isolated /morphemic unit
And - sa /s-, -s-, -s
But - wl, oli, olli /ol-
If - avt
To/at/on - t-
In - byth /by-
For/by means of - /ve-
From - svui /sv-
By - bul /u-, -b-, -u
Of - /jw-
Out of/from - lẅasv /vẅ-
So/that - ẅgh
Through - lẅen
Until - eib
With - grn /gr-, gr-, r-, rn-, r-, n-, -n, -n
with also can take /sa/ or /ca/ as a suffix according to dialect, so the following combinations are possible (using cat)
grn dertha grn dertha-ca grn dertha-sa
gr-dertha gr-dertha-ca gr-dertha-sa
r-dertha r-dertha-ca r-dertha-sa
rn-dertha rn-dertha-ca rn-dertha-sa
n-dertha n-dertha-ca n-dertha-sa
dertha-n dertha-n-ca dertha-n-sa
dertha-n dertha-n-ca dertha-n-sa
gr-dertha [gɾ:] is an atypical cluster, so this combination is not possible. However, should it precede a vowel or /s/ it would be acceptable.

Question words:
Who sim [sim]
What th [θ]
When lnma [lnna]
Where hjenm [hʥɛnn]
Why cui [kwi]
How j [ʥ]
Which cn [knʉ] inherently dual (which of two)

These words usually occur in place of the object in a sentence:
What do you want? (want you what?) wl thli th? [βlθliθ]
Which one do you want? (want you which?) wl thli cn? [βlθliknʉ]
Where are you going? (go you /youre going where?) ch/chmu thli hjenm? [ʃi:məuθlihʥɛnn]
Who is she? (is she who?) ia n sim? [iana:sim]
Why are you here? (here are you why?) eob ia thli cui? [ɛopiaθlikwi]
When shall we go? (go-FUT-IMP we when?) chghm li lnma? [ʃi: xmləilnna]
How did you do that? (do-PAST you how?) bhych thli j? [bɪktəθliʥ]

Edit found another angry face in there... Laughing

Verbs:
All verbs end in a consonant, which is varied. Regular verbs conjugate like so:
INF sro-gh [srox] to play
PRES sro [sro] plays
CONT sro-mu [sroməu] playing
FUT sro-gh [srox] will play
PAST srogh- [sroxə] played
PASTCONT (PC) srogh-m [sroxmə] was playing
TENT sro-mia [sromja] would play
Past in future sro-liv [sroliv] will have played
Future in past sro-bhot [srobot] would have played
There are two types of verbs which undergo an internal vowel change; there are the e-i verbs, and the a-o verbs.

Example: e-i conversion
INF ner [nɛʲar] to stop
PRES nia [nia] stops - except for the infinitive, /a/ loses its pre-palatalization
CONT niamu [niaməu] stopping
FUT niagh [niax] will stop
PAST niar [niarə] stopped note the vowel change remains even though the infinitive is the base
PC niarm [niarmə] was stopping
TENT niamia [niamja] would stop
Past in future nialiv [nialiv] will have played
Future in past niabhot [niabot] would have played

Example: a-o conversion
INF them [θɛʲam] to read
PRES theo [θɛo] reads except for the infinitive, /a/ loses its pre-palatalization
CONT theomu [θɛoməu] reading
FUT theogh [θɛox] will stop
PAST theom [θɛomə] stopped not the vowel change remains even though the infinitive is the base
PC theom* [θɛomə] was stopping *[mm] is not a permissible geminate, so in this case the conjugation is irregular
TENT theomia [θɛomja] would read
Past in future theoliv [θɛoliv] will have read
Future in past theobhot [θɛobot] would have played
When a verb is used with another such as begin to or be able to it takes the present tense plus /ch/ [ʃ].
I can read gl theoch l [gle:θɛoʃlʲɛ], vs. gl theo l [gle:θɛolʲɛ], which sounds like I can I read and makes sense only with the insertion of a comma or semicolon: I can; I read.

Reflexive verbs:
Reflexivity is marked with prefixation of /sl/ to a verb, or use of the passive and a reflexive pronoun:
To read to oneself slthem [so:lθɛʲam]
He likes himself slwl rwc [so:lwlrɯk] or wlodh tibh [βlotəib]
The reflexive it can be used when one doesnt know or doesnt want to specify the gender of a thing (he/she), or when making a generalization.

The imperative is suffixation of /m/ or /em/ (speakers preference) to the present tense, or prefixation of /a/ or /at/ if other suffixes are already attached and which would create an illegal diphthong or geminate:
Example:
Read! theom! Or, atheo!
Have him read theo-s-em theosem; /o/ does not begin any diphthong, so the speaker would need to use either the suffix /m/ or one of the prefixes:
atheos [aθɛoso:]/theosm [θɛoso:m]

Use of the imperative + FUT forms the suggestive lets or shall:
theoghm [θɛoxm]/ atheogh [aθɛox] lets stop

Passive voice is shown through suffixation of /odh/, the vowel of which generally gets absorbed:
themodh [θɛʲamo] to be read
theo-odh, thedh [θɛo:] is read note that the vowel absorption causes lengthening of the previous vowel
theo-mu-odh, theomdh [θɛoməu:] is being read
theo-gh-odh, theoghdh [θɛox] will be read note, /o/ is not a permissible diphthong, so /o/ is dropped completely
theom--odh, theomodh [θɛomo] was read note that the past tense morpheme is the one dropped here
theom-m-odh, theomdh [θɛomə] was being read note that /o/ is dropped
theo-mia-odh, theomidh [θɛomja:] would be read note, /ao/ is not a permissible diphthong, so /o/ is absorbed

Causative voice is shown through suffixation of /s/, which can be combined with the passive voice to form passive-causative and causative-passive:
themodhs [θɛʲamoso:] to be made to read
themsdh [θɛʲamso:] to cause to be read

Volitional is shown through suffixation of /nu/ for the 1st and 2nd persons and /n/ for 3rd person. It indicates both desire and intention:
theonu [θɛonu] I/we/you want to read; I/we/you intend to read
theon [θɛon] he/she/it/they want to read; he/she/it/they intend to read
themodhn [θɛʲamon] it wants to be read
themodhsnu [θɛʲamosonu] I want to be made to read

Mood:
Dubitative; there is a positive and a negative dubitative:
/iag/ (to be) iag-nalla [jagnalla] might be/ if it is
iag-ẅn [jagɹe:n] might not be/ if it isnt
The verb remains in the infinitive because it just does.

Hypothetical mood; there is a positive and negative hypothetical, which can be used in combination with the dubitative:
/iag/ (to be) chẁll-ia [ʃʊɫja] what if it is?
chgh-ia [ʃxja] what if it isnt?
chẁll-iag-nalla [ʃʊɫjagnalla] what if it might be?
chgh-iag-ẅn [ʃxjagɹe:n] what if it might not be?
The affixes must agree in positivity when both occur.

Subjunctive mood; is a mutation of the dubitative/hypothetical, formed by prefixation of /all(a)/ for positive and /ẅ/ for negative, and can be used with the volitional to emphasize particular desire:
/chch/ (to go) allach l [allaʃilʲɛ] if I were going
allachnu l [allaʃi:nulʲɛ] if I were going (and I really want to)
/iag/ (to be) allia l thli [aɫjalʲɛθli] if I were you
allianu l thli [aɫjanulʲɛθli] if I were you (and I wish I could be right about now)

Permissive mood; variant of the imperative /em/ /n/ is prefixed to the passive (literally meaning something like that one does this is fine with me):
/srogh/ (to play) n-sro-odh, nsrdh you may play; its okay to play

Conditional mood; the conditional verbal affix is /cagh/, partially related to the nounalization morpheme /sag/ or /sagh/. This indicates only if, and can be intensified or made exclusive by beginning the phrase or sentence with /brrinagh/, meaning father mine or, equivalently, oh Lord, much like Spanish /ojal/.

Example: If I could read theocagh l [θɛokaxlʲɛ]
Oh, if only I could read! brrinagh theocagh l! [pʲɛrrinaxθɛokaxlʲɛ]

Probability: this includes the senses of possibility and likelihood. The former is expressed through the word maybe /yt/ which precedes the verb phrase
maybe it is yt ia [ɪtia]
likely/probably it is mth ia [mi:θia]

There are three morphemic units which can replace the words maybe and likely, though use of them reduces the emphasis of ones certainty to just maybe.
Verbs: take /ull/ as a prefix maybe it is a cat ull-ia n-dertha, ullia n-dertha [ullianɾɛrθa]
Nouns: take /ẅs/ as a suffix it is maybe a cat ia n-derthaẅs [ianɾɛrθaəɹs]
Adjectives: /a/ rises to /e/ /i/ or /u/ following liquids/semivowels, fricatives, and nasals respectively, and then it or the other (unchanged) vowels take /nnw/ as a suffix it is maybe quiet ia hysa-nnw, ia hysinnw [iahɪsinnɯ]
it is maybe similar ia erthir-nnw, ia erthinnw [iaɛrθinnɯ] here the adjective morpheme /ir/ is reduced to /i/ because [rθnn] is a rather atypical consonant cluster, though not impossible.

In the case of color adjectives, which tend to end in consonants, the probability affix follows the same rules as above, though the proper vowel (following liquids, fricatives, and nasals) is inserted rather than raised from /a/ or left as is, since there is no vowel. In the occurrence of the adjective morphemes /ir/ and /if/ or /yf/, they are reduced to /i/ /i/ and /y/.

Note that these morphemic units are different from that of the dubitative, which is assigned strictly to the verb:
It might be quiet iagnalla hysa [iagnallahɪsa] (vs.)
It is likely quiet ia hysinnw [iahɪsinnɯ]
However, these can be combined to make it might maybe be quiet (strong probability) iagnalla hysinnw. The tendency is to use one or the other, and include a truth intensifier (really, truly, actually) instead.

Necessity:
The verb to need /tllagh/ [tllax] is used not only in needing an object but also for the necessity of an action. I need that follows the standard VSO structure tlla l icah [tllalʲɛikah], but I need/must/have to hide requires, in order to follow the same structure, nounalization of the second verb
tlla l enmomusagh [tllalʲɛ:nnoməusax] (need-PRES I hide-CONT-noun).
The root of to need, /tll/, can be prefixed to the second verb in its perfect passive tense (literally, (there is) necessity to be verb-ed) tllenmordh l [tllɛnnorəlʲɛ].

Narrative voices:

When relating information heard firsthand, all basic tenses with the exception of the infinitive change form:
/srogh/ (to play)
PRES elongation of the final vowel or, in the case of a consonant, suffixation of // - sr I hear he plays
CONT - /mi/ or /mi/ - sromi/sromi [sroməi/sromi] I hear hes playing
FUT - /gh/ - srogh [sroxo:] I hear hell play
PAST - /h/ - sroh [srohe:] I hear he played
PC - /m/ - srom [sroma:] I hear he was playing
TENT - /l/ - srol [srolə] I hear he would play

When quoting information, /ẅj/ is suffixed to regular and e-i conversion verbs, and /h/ is suffixed to a-o conversion verbs:
/ner/ (to stop)
PRES - niaẅj [niaɹʥ] he says I stop
CONT - niamuẅj [niaməuɹʥ] he says Im stopping
FUT - niaghẅj [niaxɹʥ] he says Ill stop
PAST - niarẅj [niarəɹʥ] he says I stopped
PC - niarmẅj [niarməɹʥ] he says I was stopping
TENT - niamiaẅj [niamjaɹʥ] he says Id stop

/them/ (to read)
PRES theoh [θɛoha:] he says I read
CONT theomuh [θɛoməuha:] he says Im reading
FUT theoghh [θɛoxha:] he says Ill read
PAST theomh [θɛoməha:] he says I read
PC theomh* [θɛoməha:] he says I was reading remember this particular verb is irregular in this tense
TENT theomiah [θɛomjaha:] he says Id read

When relating information that was told to you, but not quoting, /ghe/ is prefixed to the verb:
/chch/ (to go)
PRES ghech [xɛʃi:] he says that he goes
CONT ghechmu [xɛʃi:məu] he says that hes going
FUT ghechgh [xɛʃi: x] he says that hell go
PAST ghechch [xɛʃi:ktə] he says that he went
PC ghechchm [xɛʃi:ktmə] he says that he was going
TENT ghechmia [xɛʃi:mja] he says that he would go

Further tenses, voices, and moods can be added in the order desired:

He said that he will be made to go:
/ghechghdhs/ [xɛʃi: xso:]
NAR-go-FUT-PASS-CAUS
I would hear that he might play
/sroghmianalla/ [sroxo:mjanalla]
play-PRESNAR-TENT-pos.dub.

Gossip:
Gossip can be identified by the general use of the following sentence-starters:
/t-fra/ [tfe:ra] to fact; to the point this is used when relating something one strongly believes to be true but which might not need to be said except for the specific purposes of gossip
/scŵdh dch/ [skɯ:ɾʃ] so much as it is said (lit. say-PASS extent) this expresses some doubt as to the veracity of the information following, and often leads to mild debate on the subject
/nh/ [na:h] hey, guess what? this is the simplest and most direct form of introducing gossip, and is used exactly as it is in English, or any other language with a similar conversation starter.

Apology:
The apologetic mood is used in, obviously, apology, but it is more of a matter of being proper than actually apologizing; there are apology words for making a real apology, but this isnt it:
Using a falling pitch, precede verbs with /ollhegyn/ [ollhɛgɪn] (from but-well-no)
Example: (Im sorry but) I have to go
/ollhegyn tlla l chmusagh/ [ollhɛgɪntllalʲɛʃi:məusax] (but-well-no need-PRES I go-CONT-noun) literally, sorry but I need the going.
This can take the same form shown under necessity: ollhegyn tllchchdh l [ollhɛgɪntɫʃi:ktəlʲɛ] (but-well-no need-go-PAST-PASS I) sorry but I need to be gone.

Then at that time was said among-them Hey, build-FUT-IMP we brick(pl.), by-burning(noun) of-them with-fire. Thus had they bricks as (way) stones, by-the causing to join (noun) of-them by-earth sticky (n2a1).
Then at that time was said among-them Hey, build-FUT-IMP we a-town-and-a-tower of-which would-go(SUB) as high as heaven top; and then make-FUT-IMP ourselves famous (n2a1), that might-remain name-us.
Then at that time decended The First to see (dangling verb) town-and-tower which was being built children-of-men-by.
Then at that time said The First: See, are united they and is spoken language one by-them; and, is this just start of-that-which might-do them: and so now, will be impossible (2n1a) keeping(noun) of-them from-all (sub.cl.) do-intend-might them.
Hey, descend-FUT-IMP-and-take ableness of-language-them, that will be understood among-them nothing.
Then at that time were scattered they by The first and was given up the building(noun) of-the-town.
Then at that time was called the tower Babel, because there was made to be confused the language of-men by The First, and-from-there were scattered they on-all-earth.


Pardon my extremely terrible gloss and lack of phonological transcription. Razz Comments and questions are welcome and indeed hoped for. (^_^)


*Edit: I discovered that some of my IPA had turned into angry faces, so I put spaces between the colon and the x, wherever it was. Narrative nonquoting, I think. (^_^)

Looks like you've put a lot of work into it.
I'll probably get to read it for real on Wednesday. In the meantime, I'll just say it looks meaty.
