Re: Music in my con world, how about yours?

If kaibyou have their own music, it would be heavily influenced by Japanese music traditions, (and indirectly by cultures that Japan borrowed from). Imagine like, Japanese folk and court music, but made for cats. Otherwise they primarily listen to various styles of Japanese music (and again, music ...

Re: europidjin? euroblabla? europex?

Possibly rude suggestion: Why not learn and promote an existing Western European styled language? There are already so many of them! For the sake of naturalism, Interlingua is perhaps the best. For the sake of simplicity, Lingua Franca Nova is none too shabby. And there is always Esperanto, if you w...

I have the same problem. But I think it's also shanoxilt's fault for using a confounding [ hr ] there. What is that doing there at all?

Re: Flägs & vexillology!

I for one very much like Sajem Tan’s flag! Thank you muchly. What is the name of the honeycomb-like charge in the murry field near the hoist? It is just a seal with varying interpretations. It could represent the convergence of the animacies, or the nine original founders, or the complexity of the ...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Six more weeks of winter, or so I've heard. It cannot end soon enough. Meh, I can wait. We did the snow thing here in Suzhou a week ago, so I've gotten that out of my system. But as long as the water pipes don't burst (a widespread phenomenon here south of the Yangtse two years ago -- an area not a...

What's the percentage of overlap here with the mailing list?
You posted in incoherent sentence fragments, so nobody knows how to respond.

Re: Shanoxilt's Surreal, Syntax-Bending Poetry Translation Challenge

grammar is noise Mold: all original ideas, shadow and noise words: hidden body text; It's a subconscious mindset. Hide all contact points on the invention of the displaced feeling and his subconscious thoughts. I felt a lot of pain sensations from sleep; body that joins the recognition of the word,...

Why oh why do your posts say "clongo!" For what purpose do you change the abbreviation!?
Such is the way of linguistic drift. I just prefer to call them "languages" myself.

It wasn't until I had quoted you that I even saw the poem. I was about to write "The following what?" The stupid new look of the board means I can't tell where people's signatures begin, so I just completely blocked out the meat of your post because my brain decided that was a signature. Rahrg!

Shanoxilt's Surreal, Syntax-Bending Poetry Translation Challenge

Hey, everyone. The following is a series of Dadaist and surrealist poems that I made using Burroughs' cut-up technique. If this garners enough responses, perhaps we can collect the translations into a document for others to peruse. Thank you for your interest, effort, and time. Let the challenge beg...

That's most of the grammar, sans the vocabulary section and the translation of North Wind and the Sun.

Discourse and Pragmatics Quotation Quotations made using postpositions are generally taken as indirect speech. "Ro tan gamyk zanum sê." would generally be taken as "He said that I’m a tree." or "He called me a tree." as opposed to the person in question calling themself a tree, which would likely b...

Re: A Reference Grammar of Sajem Tan

Particles Particles in Sajem Tan are basically anything that isn’t a root or a suffix. They describe things that are hard to express in English without making a long and confusing sentence about them. They can also act as containers for words and phoneme sequences. Particles function in four main w...
