Re: Ghoster's Conlangerium

Imfursa looks like a bastard of Voynich Manuscript and Burmese. To be honest I never had any contact with Burmese (I could see it somewhere looking for other scripts), but Imfursa has indeed elements inspired by the Voynich's most recognizable ligature. It's a couple of letters that make ligatures ...

Re: Sáhötan'ővan

I really like the phonetics, they're simple yet original. Creating phonological system that is both small and recognizable is a very hard thing to do. Lots of glottal stops also give it a nice flavor, although the apostrophe doesn't look very appealing in the latin script repeated so many times; som...

Re: Padmaran

So I've been kind of working on the last concept lately. It's all ideographic. I'm finding it very hard to connect the style of this script (with all its boxy nature) with the abjad above (being written in a horizontal line). I guess I'll have to goof around with their written form and work it out f...

Re: Padmaran

Very nicely spotted! The thing is a little bit more complicated than that. Basically the glyph under the tail tells how much of the noun there is and in case of singular and dual if it's masculine or feminine. There's also plural, singulative and nullar number (used in expressing things like "I have...

Re: Padmaran

Well, the script was probably the most satisfying element to make about this conlang. Basically it's an absolute abjad, which means that vowels are not marked at all (or there's a marker of "a vowel" at the beginning of a word, but because this conlang has a phonemic glottal stop, it could be analys...

Ghoster's Conlangerium

Ok, guys, what I've got for you today is a prayer in my conlang called Padmaran. I've been working on it for a hell lotta time now and I can finally say I'm satisfied with the effects. http://i67.tinypic.com/s5g5yf.png And now let's break it down a little bit: http://i68.tinypic.com/11kw0i1.png " 1....

Re: 这练习中文

大家好。 我想知道谁现在说汉语。 我学了一个月一个人汉语。 我有跟这个语许多问题。 语法很容易。 我觉得发音也不难。 但我觉得我真从来不学了三千个汉字。。。 很有意思但哇非常难啊。
我现在知道差不多四百个汉字。 我觉得我可以学了一千个汉字下个月。 但我不确定嗯。 哈哈
如果我做错误 - 告诉吧。谢谢。 晚安。

Re: The Majestic 4th Conversation Thread

Imfursa's is my least favorite, it's my favorite on account of the nadderly liaisons, winding serpentwise among the more unsuspecting letters. Well, first of all I never said that these liaisons have anything to do with the ligatures. ;) They actually don't, liaison in Imfursa is fairly new thing i...

Ghoster's Conlangs [Split]

Split from The Majestic 4th Conversation Thread So, there are three conlangs that I've been developing for quite some time now (even though one of them is still a beta thing as I struggle to make a satisfying correlation between the script, phonotactics and grammar) and they all have their own scri...

Re: Distinctions and mergers in your conlang

My main conlang, Padmaran, doesn't have proper words for "drinking" and "eating", there's only " Caneara " 'To consume'; what's more interesting there are actually very specified words such as " Sea'aha " 'To drink wine' or " Leaqeata " 'To drink beer'. It also has different words for Adam's apple d...

"I would have had to have been told that that has had to had happen".
Is this sentence grammatically correct?
