189272Re: Honeymoons (and other conlang related wedding stuff)
- Jul 3, 2012@ Daniel: congratulations! Jorayn speaking people have temporary mariages
that have to be renewed every year and that typically would happen in
summer. Thrre wouldn't really be a honeymoon, so I suspect they would call
the honey moon either lun da miiyel or some kind of calque.
@Roger: Winnipeg used to have a really, really nice world class beach a
couple hours away...and stuff is really cheap here I guess. I don't think
it's normally any cooler here than in South Dakota in June (wikipedia seems
to agree) but maybe I underestimate the heat in South Dakota.
