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

Like the orc language from LOTR, they made it to sound evil. Sounds we associate with things often dictates what words mean. Like "little" has front vowels and the dental plosive (i think its a plosive, though in some dialects its a glottal stop) and the lateral approximate which makes it sound.. W...

I have a phonology i'm fairly happy with (not entirely sure if my symbols are exactly what i think they are, but i'm pretty sure). Here's my phonology and a few sample words.

Re: The ancient pre-columbian drug exchange

A little more research yielded some very.. Bazaar results. To start a wikipedia article on the pre-columbian travel depicts kon tiki (as i referenced earlier) and gives some skeptics view points as well, attempting to dismiss the occurences, nevertheless possible. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre-...

Re: The ancient pre-columbian drug exchange

Very very possible. Many of you clearly never saw the movie "kon tiki" which was based off of a true story where a scientist wanted to prove that native americans actually sailed across the pacific ocean and colonized polynesia. The scientist built a balsa wood raft and used the ocean currents from ...

Re: Greatest conquerors in history

Awesome; does 'come' work as a double-entendre in Latin, or is it just a fortuitous coincidence when used with English? Do/did Latin verbs have gender, though? Definitely not. Come doesn't mean "cum" in anyway, but latin did have hundreds of words to describe sexual acts and every body orifice (nam...

Re: Internet linguistics

I feel like that's an overly blanketed statement. There are very few places on in the internet i can actually have an intellectual discussion with someone, 4chan is one of them.

I don't but that's something to work on! As far as "internet linguistics", i think its just an increased rate of the evolution of language due to the sharing of ideas.
