Re: CBB Conlang Relay IX

Recieved. Am doing some work on it tonight. Will try to get it done tomorrow if possible; however with crunch time in school and tomorrow's schedule, I very well may not even begin working too much on it until Thursday. Take your time! If possible I would like to be moved to after Tuesday 23rd Jan,...

I enjoyed it as a whole, for the most part, but felt that the character development fell flat, especially compared to TFA.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay IX

I honestly think I might need to get skipped in genera, instead. I'm kinda not feeling the time limit on this whole thing as I've been in a bit of an "off" streak as far as conlanging goes. Sorry y'all. That's alright - if you change your mind later and we're still going, you can be added back in i...

Re: I need more phonemes!!! Help!

Well, as far as phoneme inventories go, yours is far from the smallest. (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotokas_language or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaiian_phonology). So I wouldn't say you don't have enough sounds! But if you want more phonemes, perhaps add another kind of contrast? Aspir...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay IX

I work tonight and tomorrow and won't have a chance to even look at the Torch until after my window, let alone coin new terms and pass it along. In fact, I likely won't have much time until maaaaybe Monday or more likely Thursday... Should I just pass it along? I'll move you down a couple of spaces...

Two questions about the timeline: when are you planning to start, and how much time will each participant be given? Asking because I still have huge gaps in Nakarian grammar and need to know how fast I have to fill them. ;) We'll start this evening if I can finish putting the torch together by then...

Just how long and complex will the Torch be? I've never done one of these, so I don't wanna get in over my head. Some examples of previous torches: He came saw and asked: “What do you intend with so few warriors?” “To win” “Where is the rest of your soldiers?” “Racing who swims up the river faster”...

CBB Conlang Relay IX

It's time. Anyone who signs up will receive a PM with some text written in a conlang of the previous participant. The PM will contain basic grammatical information and a short glossary - just enough to translate the text given into English. There will be no gloss. They will decrypt the text accordin...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

It's been a long time since we had a conlang relay, hasn't it? Is there a reason for that that I've missed or have we just not done one in a while? Those were great fun and I'd be very much up for another.

Re: Introduction and phonology of Duli.

I've been fascinated by the idea of constructed languages for a long time, and on several occasions tried to construct one. Every attempt ended in failure at a very early stage. I put constructed languages aside and forgot about it for years on end. A few months ago, I found some old files on my co...
