Re: Lihmelinyan

Thank you guys! I really appreciate it. Just knowing that anyone's even looking at this motivates me to post more. I'll introduce more verbal forms next. That's what needs the most work :) Wow I can't believe I didn't notice this earlier! I love it! I also began working on a conlang which was intend...

Thank you! Yeah I have a friend who's 19 and already has a receding hairline. Yikes :(

Re: Lihmelinyan

Thanks for your interest! i- and u-stem Nouns Time to foray into the complicated world of athematic nouns, so I thought I would start with the simplest of athematic nouns, the i- and u-stems. The i- and u-stem nouns are athematic because they attach the endings directly to the stem, and here, the st...

Well, I'm feeling good about getting something done with my conlang for once, so I'm feeling okay with the idea of sharing my photo here too. Anyway, this is me!

Re: What did you accomplish today?

^Sometimes I relish days like that.

Today I finally added something to my conlang page, and developed more of the verbal system. I'm almost done with college apps. Things are going well [:D]

Re: Lihmelinyan

Verbs I thought today I would finally introduce the Lihmelinyan verbal system. The system is somewhat complicated and I don't even have it all worked out yet, but I'll start with the basics. There are two "conjugations": thematic and athematic. Thematic verbs are characterized by an intervening <a>...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

^ I actually like "snuta" better. It sounds Lihmelinyan-like almost. Lots of words with /sn/ and /sm/ in my language. Maybe because Lihmelinyans are kind of smarmy. [;)]

As a very young kid, I'm fairly certain that I imagined England as being more of a fantasy kingdom than a modern country, so I was ripe for Harry Potter with its magical setting.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Although to have Latin-style numbered noun declensions in Lihmelinyan would be untenable, I have decided to class the stem types with Roman numerals and letters for closely related types: a - masculine thematics (a-stems) Ib - neuter thematics (a-stems) IIa - ā-stem feminines IIb - ī-stem feminines ...

I need to find more music like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0ORwsgf8Q8

It's a song by Cantonese singer Terence Choi. I just love the sound of it, the pentatonic scale, the flute in the background...and I'm surprised that I can read some of the characters [:D]
