Since no one’s made any guesses in the past two days, I can give a hint if you guys would like.

Re: Advice for Omyatloko

this does not contradict the average: Around the twenties: alphabet around the hundred: syllabary around a thousand: logography... It does contradict what you originally said which was that logographic require thousands of symbols. I don’t know about you, but I’d consider 600 pretty far from 1000 a...

Re: Lapdeutsch

I figured I’d rush through nouns since it’s pretty simple grammar. I could move on next to either more declensions, or could discuss the different ways the various cases are still used in modern speech. Which would you guys be more interested in seeing now? I'd like to know how they're still used i...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

More examples...probably gonna slow down from here on. Glyphs which don't have a Laroche number are actually inspired by Linear B rather than Luwian. https://image.ibb.co/bHZzrL/logography-3-20181017.png 1.1 ewe 1.2 barely 1.3 oil 1.4 wine 1.5 flour 2.1 pig 2.2 after, behind *35 2.3 goat *104 2.4 go...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Given that there have been no further guesses and a day has nearly elapsed, I'm willing to concede the victory to GrandPiano since he found out the literal meaning and give the meaning of the word if there are no further guesses. No objections here. I have a very vague idea of what it might be, but...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

Below is an example of a logography I've been working on. The shapes are all borrowed from Luwian Hieroglyphs. I've only adapted them to my own style. I don't necessarily have a conlang that these go with but I am enjoying the design process and would like some feedback. These were drawn by hand on ...

Re: Advice for Omyatloko

My goal is to have about 500 glyphs for fairly common words. in natlanguages, alphabets have tens signs, syllabaries hundred, logographies thousands... How do you hack those limits to get your number of signs... This isn't entirely true. Sumerian Cuneiform only had 1,00-1,500 total graphemes. Akkad...

On the right track. It is used to control water (waves) in some way.
