I just assumed “breaking the dyke” all had something to do with a lesbian running out of money.
Once again, I did not intend it to be understood as such. I apologize that it could have been misunderstood as such.

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I did some quick 'n' dirty google searches. Apparently, we have quite a few dikes (i.e. levees) in :us-pa:. Clearly my bad. Nonetheless, we also have quite a few folks with surnames like 'Dykes', "Dykstras', and 'Van Dykes' in :us-pa: as well. That, plus Dick Van Dyke, could have influenced my choic...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Though a 'Murican, I swear on my dead Pharaoh that I have only seen it spelled 'dyke'. Certainly, though, I could be subconsciously influenced by the name 'Dick van Dyke', whose name was emblazoned on the beginning of every episode of his eponymous comedy program. I only meant another name for a con...

I just made the Culet-Mayato script...which is going to be an abugida written horizontally from left to right.

As its name suggests, it is shared by both of the Mayato language and the Culet language.
Huzzah for abugidas!
Proceed!!

Intriguisting ~ I really cannot believe (sort of tickled) that Doom has enjoyed the longevity it has. It was hands down one of the best shareware games $2-5 could buy back in the 1990s.

万 So… this is my 10000th post on the CBB. I'm sure some of you have noticed that I've been counting down every post since 9990, and periodically since 9900. I've felt annoying doing so, but I like how those numbers look aesthetically. This isn't a big accomplishment or something like that, since po...

In keeping with my habit of playing games two years behind everybody else, I've been playing the new Doom.

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

For a naturalistic conlang, is it unrealistic to have separate personal endings on verbs for active, middle, and passive voice? Not at all. The reflexive-pronoun origin for middle voice makes a lot of sense. That, and, by way of another example of Passive construction, Coptic Egyptian often just us...
