Re: Other Creativity

I got bored and wrote this letter in a conlang from a project from many, many years ago. As such I made some of it up as I was going along, but whatever.

I'm going to say at least one minute. Ideally longer, between three and six minutes if you're able to. If not, any contribution over one minute would be greatly appreciated anyway!

Re: Contongues: Our answer to Wikitongues

I'd like to submit something, although I'm not nearly adept at my conlang enough nor am I sure that it's developed enough for anything more than a very brief demonstration. Honestly it's the same for me. I hope to submit a demonstration of my conlang but I'll have to spend some time on it in advanc...

Email video contributions to contonguescommunity@outlook.com Please remember a couple of things: [*]Your video should ideally be a monologue, about anything, but spoken in a spontaneous style (even if pre-written), i.e. not a story etc. [*]Film yourself, or if not then include an interesting video o...

Contongues: Our answer to Wikitongues

Hello! It's been a very long time since I last posted but I had an idea. I'm subscribed to the WikiTongues YouTube channel and I very much like their style of simple monologues in a wide variety of the world's languages. I'm aware that people do upload their own videos of monologues (or dialogues!) ...

Methods for organisation and motivation when conlanging

Hi guys! Looks like my last post on the board was May last year, I've been active in the chat but not much on the board besides reading the odd post that seems vaguely interesting... I feel like I haven't had a lot of time for conlanging, and when I have had the time I feel like I'm not motivated, b...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

I'm currently (very slowly) developing a con-script for my conlang. It's a right-to-left alphabet developed from a set of logographs that originally represented things that start with the phoneme it represents (much like Phoenician). I'm not dedicating a whole lot of time to it yet, but once I have ...

Re: An insane conversation on deciphering the alphabet

Back to reality, though, this isn't the first time I've seen something like this. I think, on the omniglot forum IIRC, someone was proposing that the letters of the Greek(?) alphabet represented the phases of the moon. I'm not sure how these ideas are suppose to relate to the actual history of the ...

An insane conversation on deciphering the alphabet

Greetings, fellow (hopefully) sane conlangers. I had a conversation on IRC with an (apparently) 27 year old Greek student who was trying to tell me that letters were made to match the shape of the mouth when pronouncing them, and in the case of Arabic, the airflow out of the mouth. It is quite drast...

This is... very odd indeed. I mean, it doesn't look like a generic ultra-right-wing conservative or whatever website, and the author looks like this . Not what I expected, at least. And looking at his bio, I'm confused even more, because it reinforces the point to make me think that it can't really ...
