Re: Inner Bruise -- a science-fiction collabfic

It's been over a year and no one from this site has joined this project. So I'd like to ask all of you why. Is there some reason you haven't been interested in, or have actively been turned off from, participating in the Inner Bruise collaboration wiki? I can't figure out what it is. It looks like ...

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

So there’s syntactic based marking like good old nom/acc and erg/abs and the likes, where some NPs are cast to S/A/P which then receive case marking as appropriate. There’s semantic based marking, where this intermediate step is skipped and nouns are marked based on their semantic roles (agent, pat...

Re: "She's a ten!"

If Paul is 8 points, then Alan is like 10 points. ^That would also be usable/acceptable/understood in griuskant conculture, though most of the time, regular comparatives are just fine. Comparatives? Like "Paul is less hot than Alan but hotter than Blehm"? Yes, or other sentences like that. Easy.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

We should all translate articles like those into our own conlangs, then collate them into a single publication, like in those Esperanto magazines.

With a tabloid-style front cover and click-bait headlines. OMG You wouldn't believe this conlanger's secret!
