Re: What did you accomplish today?

I just spent an absurdly long time organizing, uploading, re-organizing, sorting, re-naming, and re-uploading a vast array of characters for the overhaul of Shitullian. The new version has about twice as many vowels, which complicates the system that was in use. Now, I had to innovate some new vowel...

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

Is it plausible that all nouns in a language have a non-class related suffix attached to them that is separated when the noun undergoes things like noun incorporation? I ask because I would like it to be clear why only a portion of the word (i.e. the root) is used for certain applications, and yet I...

lastly, should I innovate some signs that are only used when a low sign has to be moved above the glyph and act as a high sign?
Personally, I'd say to go for this option.
Yeah, mayhap.

However, that kinda forces the question of why those signs aren't always used just to totally avoid the issue.

Re: Yay or Nay?

This is almost a yay/nay question, so I figured I'd post it here and see how it goes. I recently completed an overhaul to the written forms of glyphs in Shitaall. However, now that I have, I have come across a bit of an issue. Before, there were only a few vowels, and when the non-inherent vowel was...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Only once per year, then I change back into a conlanger. Somehow I got unsubscribed from the Lexember thread. Has anyone encountered any similar problems? No, I haven't had such problems since the forum switched over. Maybe you clicked the link by accident at some time while scrolling on mobile or s...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have worked out a good portion of back story for a D&D character for a campaign starting... probably after the new year. I am intensely jealous! I have wanted to play DnD for a long time and just don't know anyone near me who plays. I am saddened. I may just lurk at a local gaming store and see i...

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

The Spanish forms in -ante -iente are descended from the Latin present participle in -āns /-ēns and are called present participles in traditional grammar. However, they’ve largely lost their participial functionality* in verbal constructions and are mostly used as adjectives and nouns. The gerundio...

Present participles are a fairly common agentive in Romance languages. Take Spanish cantante (singer), hablante (speaker) and andante (wanderer) for example.
Isn't the present participle ending in Spanish -ando and not -ante, though?

And to think, I -just- deleted the app from my phone since I rarely used it. Maybe now I should re-download it?

Can I get a link to join as well or is the other one still good?

I agree it's kinda dumb on a language forum to not be able to use square brackets without them triggering style changes. I believe it would be possible to change them, so that bold instead was [bold][/bold] and so on. But then the formatting code would be more annoying (read: longer) to type, for t...
