Re: Con-Script Development Centre

Here's a conscript which is the refinement of a conscript I developed a long time ago. I don't know how to make it a font, but I thought I'd post it here for some feedback.

Re: Grammuary 2018

I’m down. I need motivation to work on my new conlang. I’m really bad at a priori languages so hopefully this will help.

Day 1: Trińat (working name) will use nom-acc alignment for Animate nouns in classes I and II but Erg-Abs for class III animated and inanimates.

Re: The History of the Greater West

This is all quite interesting. How does Judaism differ in this world than it does now? Has the Second Temple been destroyed? Without the destruction of the temple and the subsequent disappearance of the Sadducees, does Rabbinical Judaism as we know it still exist? I refer you to the OP: 69 CE, the ...
