I don't just mean traditional Christmas carols, but also parodies of carols if you can find any. If the carol is a parody, please share the ori...

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

If English was OSV what would "I wish he would stop killing me" become? I wish me he would stop killing? He I wish would stop killing me? He I wish killing me would stop? Well first things first, the way to proceed about this is much more obvious when "that" is used: I wish that he would stop killi...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Some of you may have noticed that I’m working on a new conlang called Núta . I like the name, but there’s this upstart side of my mind, quasi-masochistic, that fancies changing the name to Snúta . Snúta - the snootiest language... I'd even suggest Þnúta/Θnúta (could be an allophonic change?), but I...
