Palimpsest Rules Letter dated 2018-11-08

Worthy and worshipful heralds, I recommend me to you.

This Rules Letter proposes some changes to Appendix A. All of the proposed changes may be found in HTML format at http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/palimpsest/appendixa_draft.html .

1: Appendix A - Jewish - New Rule Change

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

The August 2018 Cover Letter asked that double given names for Ashkenazic Hebrew be added to Appendix A. This submission makes that change and corrects an error in spacing.

For the updated table, see http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/palimpsest/appendixa_draft.html or the image attached to this item.

Proposed Text

Notes:

Jews lived in a location where a vernacular was spoken (German, Arabic, etc.) Men generally had a Hebrew language name and a vernacular name. The vernacular name may be the equivalent of their Hebrew name or an unrelated vernacular name. Women generally had vernacular names only (often the same as local naming pool).

Hebrew: Patronymic bynames are formed using ben B "son of B," and bat B (Sephardic) or bas B (Ashkenazic) "daughter of B"

Vernacular: Vernacular bynames often follow the Hebrew forms (so mostly patronymic), but are generally written following the standards for the local vernacular. Occasionally, the particles are transliterated from the Hebrew (e.g., "N filius B ben C" in a Latin document). Other kinds of bynames (especially locative bynames and the byname meaning "Jew" in the vernacular) are found as well.

2: Appendix A - Mongol - New Rule Change

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

This submission proposes a complete change of the Appendix A entry for Mongol. The current text would be entirely deleted:

Mongol names are quite different in structure from European names. All patterns documented in Baras-aghur Naran, "On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/baras-aghur/mongolian.html) are registerable.

It would be replaced by a new table with notes. For the table, see http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/palimpsest/appendixa_draft.html or the image attached to this submission.

Notes:

Though some medieval Mongolians used given names constructed from multiple words, we do not have evidence for true double given names.

Bynames based on tribe names and patronymics both use the genitive suffix. For details, see the table in Ursula Georges, "Middle Mongol Grammar for SCA Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolgrammar.html).

Descriptive bynames may be placed before or after a given name, depending on the byname.
