Have you ever been working and then realized you’ve been working on the wrong layer? Of course you have. We’ve all done it. But if you just copy and paste it, by default Photoshop drops the art in the middle of the window, which is… not very good.
Here’s how to move copy & paste it without it moving.
I’m using a render of my DnD character (that I’m using to draw them properly in Manga Studio).
Select the art work and cut it (CTRL-X on Windows). Now you’re going to ‘paste it in place’. Under the Edit menu, it’s Paste Special > Paste in Place, or Shift+CTRL+V.
Me, or at least my online avatar, in my Silver’s Kids style. Which I haven’t used in a long time, but I still have my old character reference sheets.
*sigh* I’ve had this written for a few years now. And had the artwork nearly done. So, now y’all get it! I should really write more with Daniel and Rowan. They’re delightful.

These are words that’ll let me translate stuff that I have noted in my lexicon to translate, so it’s a bit random.
Trying to catch up. These are all body parts. A couple are expansions of other meanings (I’m only including significant additions) and those have all the info. The rest I’m not taking the time to make the plurals and pronunciation and everything else.
I’m a bit behind, but I’ll catch up tomorrow or so. I’m trying to get the entries in my lexicon that are in progress finished so I can tell what I’m missing. There’s about sixty of them. Anyway, here’s a word derived from an entry I worked on today.
|Gloss:||to frighten, to scare, frightening, scary, scary things|
|Derivation:||kyry (fear) + -miir- (to cause to affix)|
|Irregularity:||Noun – Type 3 (all words derived from -miir- form plurals the same traditional way)|
I suppose I should give some quick background on my language. It’s called Ŋyjichɯn ( /ɱɪ.ˈdʒi.ʧɯŋ/ ) Because of its stress and alternation the pronunciation doesn’t match the spelling, although it’s predictable if a bit complicated. It’s a polysynthetic language with heavy noun incorporation, affixing, and reduplication. The default word order is SOV, but in practice the most important word is placed in front.
Now on with the lexemes:
I decided to do Lexember this year. For those of you who aren’t conlangers, that means I add a lexeme (basically a word) to my conlang everyday and share it. So, yay!
How about a word that I’ve actually got a sentence for?
chun – cat, to be a cat, to be cat-like
moŋ chunɯn βijy ŋazyvzɯ?
Is that your cat?
Woo! I’m up to 137 ‘words’ (lexemes) in my lexicon and 55 entries that don’t count (affixes and roots).
Here’s a couple of words:
nyki – leaf, feather, or scale.
And a word derived from it:
natryyki – leafy, feathery, scaley
I need to come up with example sentences for both of these. I’m open to suggestions
I’ve been working on my conlang a lot. I have a newer version of the tiddlywiki to upload, but since everything is tagged ‘wip’ I’m holding off. I also started a tiddlywiki lexicon instead of doing it in Excel, because it’s more useful for translations and notes. I’ll upload that as well at some point.
I recently changed the alternation so I have to redo all my words, but here’s one that’s done:
(weird spelling in the title to is how I write stuff when I don’t have the full character-set)
As requested from my girlfriend. I actually thought I had this word and didn’t, so here you go.
Our word of the day is ŋafnɯŋyɒ
Meaning: girl. Literally ‘female child’. Can refer to people or animals (people only would be ŋafnɯŋwyw, but that is almost never used).
It’s one-thirty in the morning and I don’t feel like figuring out the stress so I can figure out the alternation, so you don’t get the pronunciation. Maybe in the manana.
As always, requests accepted and you can see more Ŋyjichɯn by following the link on the sidebar to the tiddlywiki.
