Re: The Kovur Languages of Yantas

Just to throw some names at the Kovur language families: I've separated Mistaya and Hungas into eastern and western regions for the sake of convenience. Language that are outside of those regions, that aren't being named, are all marked in a very light grey, with oceans, seas and lakes marked in whi...

Re: The Human Languages of Yantas

I'll be dealing with the Kovur languages of Yantas in a separate thread, leaving this one as a thread dealing with the human languages of the planet instead. I'll be talking about them in "the Kovur Languages of Yantas" thread instead [:)]

May I ask why you use that particular romanization scheme for Ainu and Japanese? Why <w> and <y> for /u/ and /i/?

Re: Tukiri: The Aggressively Optimistic Post-Apocalypse

I only have one real question at the moment, concerning the geography, but the Greenblight river and the other river with its source on Mt. Green both travel southwards through the Blight, which you've described as ashen with a toxic atmosphere. Does the Blight affect the water of these two rivers a...

Re: How Do YOU Create Words?

(I'm not sure you can do the same thing for syllable structure, though). Because of the nesting nature of Awkwords, you could simply set aside a seperate category for your different syllable shapes, then assign weights to those. One thing about this question, of which it seems I'm doomed to never g...

Discworld joke, I believe, although I can't for the life of me remember the original context. Yeah, it's a recurring joke in the Discworld books. IIRC, it started with Cohen the Barbarian thinking that "eldritch", in reference to the Luggage, meant "oblong", and it's carried on from there. I think ...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Am I wrong? In the last few days I have listened to 2NE1’s Japanese version of their “I Am the Best”. It seems to have a lot more English than their Korean version. I look looked at the lyrics and got the same impression. I know neither Korean nor Japanese; so I’m asking, am I right or am I wrong? ...

Re: Modern Hittite lang: realistic?

I seem to recall that some languages use the dative, rather than the genitive, to mark the possessor . Latin and Ancient Greek, according to Wikipedia, used it at least in the sense of "to X is Y" where X is the possessor and Y is the thing possessed, e.g. "to me is a dog" in place of "I have a dog"...
