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

A bit... Since an average citizen prolly wouldn't know what phonotactics are. (And i would mos def call that setting "modern.")

What can I say? Apparently "cr" does not sit well with Quenya.

Dan Sindarin iuitha "cr".

Re: RIP cursive handwriting..

I was taught cursive when I was younger, but I never ended up using it. But it seems somewhere in high school and onwards I've innovated my own cursive (which is not particularly different or amazing or illegible) which I still use now; I've just out of need developed it without much thought. I thin...

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

I asked this question years ago , but I don't think I was able to express myself clearly then. To start, I'll explain what led me to my question. In English, speakers occasionally appear to make a verb agree with the final noun in the subject phrase (or maybe the final noun before the verb) rather ...

Personally, I'm more surprised it took until 2017 for someone who wanted to kill a lot of people to figure out how to accomplish it this way. I remember hearing about there being a planned shooting at a big concert recently in Sydney, but we managed to prepare so it never happened. I dunno the exac...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Our schools don't have cafeterias, but they do have "canteens", little shops when you can order lunch if you want. Otherwise, plenty of Australian kids bring their lunch to school. Everyone eats outside on steel benches or on the ground. Everyone has to wear a hat or stay in the shade if they want t...
