Re: CBB Fanfic Society

Micamo, where may I find all the public documentation about Ch'shkwil'? I was thinking of story set in a similar world, so I would like to give it a try within an already outlined conworld. If you like.

Re: Gay marriage, polygamy, etc.

Does your conworld have same-sex marriage, polygamy, child marriage, interspecies marriage, necrophiliac marriage, etc.? I wish people could make a different thread for same-sex marriage and polygamy, which are legit practices. I don't think it sounds right to compare it to child marriages and necr...

Re: On a meaningless world

Can someone identify these chinese characters?

I tried my best, but I am not a pro with photoshop. I would not be surprised if at least one or two strokes were wrong. I still hope that someone can identify them. (Yes. apparently, I can't think of a method to look up a Chinese character starting with an image file) Here we go: http://s23.postimg....

Re: Beyond Phoneme Inventories: Building a complete phonolog

In South Korea, this sound cannot occur at the start of a word or directly following another consonant: historical /l/ in these positions generally merged with /n/ Well, not quite. 1 ) First of all, it does not merge with /n/.

That's a little bit of a misconception. I think you're not considering the difference between complexity and difficulty: logograms are hard to learn and to remember, but they're certainly not complex. One symbol = one word. No exceptions, no additional rules.

Is this even Gadlīl? [o.O] That used to be Gadyl. However, at some point I decided to start it from scratch, and that bit became outdated. The only information about up-to-date Gadyl that can be found on this forum are in this thread. If you are really curious about it, it was Tā šalīta gadlĕs mū? ...

Re: Speak Gadyl - דוילע הגדיליר - Doiallá hagdillir

This sounds odd and tedious. So if you have a conversation about someone who is not there, you have to address them by their name every time? I have the inkling that people would quickly devise a shortcut for this, unless there are no names in Gadyl with more that two syllables. It's actually quite...

So logographs are the complete root? Or are they one letter in the root? Each logograph is a combination of either one, two or three consonants. For instance, these are the three logograms that appear in the first block of sample I posted: http://s4.postimg.org/7efl7j1jh/table.png The first one is ...

Actually, I was talking about the poor lyrics.

However, it is true that most of the times kpop-ish korean doesn't sound like natural korean. I think it is because they're trying to sound american, somehow.
