Re: Script preference

This is off topic I did not think, when it came to choice of writing according to the type of language that the fact that a pure ideography does not describe a single spoken language, was without interest, imha... people would find it easier to take you seriously if you didn't end every sentence wi...

Re: Script preference

It should be pointed out for those who are not aware, no ideographies actually exist obviously, you speak here of pure natural ideographies, even if they exist in natural environments in a partial way, for reduced lexicons and as a writing mechanism... but in laboratories their existence is obvious...

Re: Script preference

I think ideography don't really bother with 'language as is' but is a second language... where semantic is the first purpose... the adding of sound is just a weaker and less elegant manner of increasing number of signs or importing foreign ideas (but also a way to play on words...) 'the language as ...

Re: Script preference

writing usually at least starts out a representation of spoken speech not so on, with pictographic beginning, the writing started as a memory aid of the sense more than of the sound ... it is not for nothing that the beginning was ideographic ... it is only much later that in second-hand use, the p...

Re: Script preference

Even if synthetic languages are not favorable to invention of writing ...all historic logographies were re-used for transcription of synthetic languages...

I use pure logography for my olygosynthetic conlang, some signs have inflection meanings, but they are not empty words...

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

It leaves ambiguous just how, semantically, the derivative is related to the source, which means that, while sometimes you get polysemous derivatives, often the derivative's meaning is fixed and has to be learnt word-by-word, with little room for easy further derivation from the same source. That's...

It's 2018, and we still don't have a social media site that allows one to customise one's own font family, font size, font colour or even background picture. I'd be more interested otherwise on a pc we can always set your applications to receive everything in your preferred font and size... I tried...

Re: A Taxonomy of Conlanging (help me out)

As a conlanger I prefer to use a taxonomy from construction kinds... - a priori languages (built from non linguistic first principles) - a posteriori languages ( built from natlangs) - ex nihilo languages (built from scratch) rather than a taxonomy from purposes... - experimental conlangs (for knowl...

Re: Dealing with Conlanger's Block

you can try to write your diary in one of your conlang ... or translate your favorite book ... nothing is worth the use for going deeper ... however, the work in extension is worth the work in depth, the sharp specialists tend to cut off from the world when the generalists are better communicators ....

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

I am thinking of having no intransitive verbs in my conlang. Is this feasible and/or attested in natural languages? I would include a 'dud' object in all sentences that have unspecified objects. For instance: He eats -> He eats something. He cries -> He cries something (i.e. tears) He walks -> He w...
