Re: My invented language

I've been watching this thread for a while now, and I've checked out the other ones you linked here, and all I know for sure is that I'm hooked. You posted exactly the same sample text on another forum six years ago, and got basically the same response. Now you're posting a video of yourself reading...

Re: The worst sounding natlang ever

I'm fine with spoken Mandarin, but I think it's awful when sung. The constantly changing tones completely clash with the music for me. I'm not a big fan of the Spanish I've heard in America. I don't particularly like Spanish anyway, but at least here it seems like it's almost necessary to whine ever...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

I think you may need to closely look at the rules and figure out the pattern first. If you're doing it intuitively, great, but you'll have a really hard time describing something you only know through intuition. Can you post a few samples of your script and some characters that can and can't go toge...

Re: Hala

My original idea with /h/ was that it was 'hard', almost /k/, but in the process of being lost. That might not make sense at all, though, so I'll probably either add a /k/ or replace /h/ with it. Not sure yet. Interesting that you're considering replacing /h/ with /k/, as that would make "Hala" hom...

Re: Hala

The script is indeed left to right, and you're right, the aren't many consonant clusters. I need to sit down and figure out which are allowed and which aren't, but they tend to be avoided as a whole.

Re: Hala

Okay yeah, with my notes out here I see what you mean with the tenses and aspects. That seems a lot simpler than what I had going on. For consonants, what do you think of: /p t k/ /b ɟ/ /f s ʃ/ /v z ɦ/ /m n/ /w l j/ /r/ /i/ and /ɪ/ probably are just free variants at this point. So far they don't dis...

Re: Hala

Thanks for your feedback, and yeah, it's now painfully obvious how much I didn't know when I started. My original idea with /h/ was that it was 'hard', almost /k/, but in the process of being lost. That might not make sense at all, though, so I'll probably either add a /k/ or replace /h/ with it. No...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

I think I like the left one better, but they're both good. The right one looks more handwritten to me, but I'd prefer the left one in print.

Re: Hala

Writing system Like I said, Hala uses a logographic script despite being agglutinative. Originally the whole point was to see if I could make an agglutinative language work with this kind of script, and actually yeah, it works. I also created an alphabet, but mostly so I could work around my weird ...

Hey everyone, I made a thread about this on the Omniglot forum a while ago before I realized there are more bots than people on it, so I'm trying again here. This is mostly copied over from there. I've been working on a conlang for a while now, maybe a couple years, and after overhauling it to get r...
