Torch received! No worries at all! This will probably take me a little while as well, since I have 3 exams this week.
Have you decided what language you will be using?

Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

I’ll be following this, for sure. As for what I’d like to see next, I’m going to be predictable and ask for nominal morphology. I’m especially interested in broken plurals and whether the formation of plurals is relatively systematic according to the phonetic shape of the singular noun.

My new Limestone lexicon now contains 22 words, having seen several successful coinings this evening.

My favourite word form so far is:

That all sounds fiercely interesting, Kiwi. I look forward to reading your post on this.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay X (starting Oct 1)

Nearly half the members of Ring 1 (including me) haven’t declared what conlangs they will be using. Could shimobaatar, loglorn, and k1234567890y let us know if they’ve decided?

By the way, I’ll most likely be using Limestone.
