Re: Lexember 2017

Inspired by ixals’ post and the season in general: I'm happy to hear I could inspire someone! [:D] But the season was the reason I created those two words for Cissian!

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I just noticed that my "s" key doen't seem to be working all the time anymore. First the "z" key and now the "s" key? I guess I'll need a new keyboard. I already noticed in some post I've written on here that there are some letters missing. So if it looks like I don't know how to form plurals or con...

Re: Language practice thread

Ben, mais cette phrase-là est particulièrement difficile. Elle m'a confondu á vrai dire. J'avoue que je ne savais pas comment on dit cette phrase normalement au début. Apparent, c'est le phénomène qui s'appelle “Oberfeld” et je l'ai lu le prémier temps aujourd'hui. Je pensais toujours que les phras...

Re: Introducing Qutrussan

I like the sound and the orthography of the sister language, especially ħ because it reminds me a bit of Maltese! The outcome for 1 and 10 was the same in the sister language, so I altered the vowel in '10' but I'm not sure how actual languages would deal with such a case? If sound change renders tw...

I tried to translate your sentences as well because it was quicker and simpler for me than trying to create sentences. I liked the last sentence because it's so different in Turkish (if I translated it correctly, that is). :tur: Turkish Evim küçük ama güzel. Evin içinde antre, iki hol, mutfak, iki y...

Your German is fine. Your word choice seems very good to me! Your word order could be better but I think it's the most difficult part in German. Zu-Sätze mach t en alles auf Deutsch schwieriger.

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Based on a few posts I saw recently in another thread, I've been wondering something. How many of you aim to be able to pronounce your languages? For me, it's a non-issue. The languages I create aren't meant to be spoken/used by any real people, only hypothetical ones, so it doesn't matter if I can...
