Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

I do have an event in mind that I would take as proof that the Creator not only existed, but has hung around tending to things since the Creation. I don’t realistically expect it to ever occur, especially not in my lifetime (nor even the lifetime of any CBBean). That would be, the arrival of three ...

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

Mass has nothing to do with rotation period, unless your moons are tidally locked, and saying "rotational period" instead of "orbital period" is confusing. Are your moons tidally locked? They're tidally locked, I'm talking about the time it takes for them to rotate around the earth, which really is...

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

So you spent your adolescence in India? I never knew that! I always imagined you as growing up in Texas. I only spent 19 months of my late-single-digit childhood in India. I did grow up in Texas, for the most part. So you didn't have, say, two Italian Catholics nor two Mexican Catholics nor two Ame...

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

What climate problems would jimsonweed (e.g.) have? Primarily, the colder temperature, but I suspect I could have it 'imported' down from the northern-most clans, who have it warmer. Henbane seems possibly more willing to live in the cold, if less strong in its deleriant effect. I suppose I can use...

Re: idea for new conlang

my advice: do not look at other project until you first find your own path... after you'll get pleasure to compare the different choices of other conlangs with yours... Isd has a good point. You might decide you need to look at other conlangs &/or auxlangs anyway. There might be good reasons you’d ...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Yellow jackets aren’t a kind of bee. They’re a kind of wasp; a bit like hornets. Bees are much more reasonable stingers; they won’t sting unless they’re willing to die. Yellow jackets will sting for revenge. They have scent glands next to their venom glands, that release scent only when their abdome...

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

@Sangi39: So maybe what you’re obviating is using the term “distal” with two different meanings? Or something. OTOH you have “egophoricity 1” and “egophoricity 2”. I would think “distal 1” and “distal 2” would be even easier. Some natlangs are traditionally described as having “genitive 1” and “geni...

(Short answers: 1) No, it doesn’t have to; 2) Yes, it is attested.) I’m pretty sure I’ve seen examples of languages with polypersonal agreement in which, for instance, the verbs agree with (maybe) the person and number of the subject and the person and gender of the object, but not the gender of the...

Re: idea for new conlang

Look up “oligosynthetic” and follow some of the links you hit. Also look up “Natural Semantic Metalanguage”. It might give you some ideas. You might investigate Lojban. Obviously you wouldn’t want to imitate it! It’s not anything like what you want to achieve! But it might give you some ideas for ro...

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

What is your obviative obviating? I think you might be using that term in a manner so different from any of its non-linguistic and natlinguistic uses that it amounts to straight-out misuse, rather than redefinition. I could be wrong. Could you look up the non linguistic meanings of “obviate”, and th...

Re: Music in my con world, how about yours?

Brass cymbals date back at least as far as the Psalms. IIANM.

Certainly Paul mentioned them in 1st Corinthians 13.
But that’s too recent for Kai’s and Padraig’s latest conversational exchange.

Another thought that may (or may not!) bear on this mystery of fundamental natures is Love. Of course, I'm not saying that Daine girls do not or can not love --- this is pretty basic to the Daine person! --- but there are differences in how females and males love that may help to shed some light on...
