Re: Money!

Wait wait wait, it's all barter AND prices are centrally set? If the prices are allowed to adjust to supply and demand, then why have centrally decided prices at all? Why not just let people trade whatever for whatever? In the event of a big spike in demand, how can the central managers change pric...

Re: Money!

Yes, guess I meant barter. I was just noticing the rarity in T'Arlo that people barter more in advanced, urban cities and much less in the less advanced cities. I associate bartering with less advanced cities, and not with advanced cities. Why? It's not really possible to have a complex economy in ...

Re: Money!

Trading is still done in city centers, but outside these areas currency is used to purchase things By "Trading" do you mean "barter", as almost all human nations have always traded to some degree (unless they use a pure gift economy, as among the Aninhdhilyagwa)? Yes, guess I meant barter. I was ju...

Re: Art of Concultures

Sorry to interrupt this fascinating discussion.

Here's a T'Arlan Folk-style Araesk portrait of High Queen Morgaine-Desil Vatener of the Goldenorth. The colors represent the mood of her share of Spirit.

Re: Ķaupe

More natlangs have the stress on the second syllable than penultimate, says a phonology book. After all, only natlang with stress on the second syllable, which I know is Basque. Do you have other words than pizza? And does it really mean pizza, the Italian food, or same kind dish. I'm afraid I'm co...

Well, I haven't set it yet, but when I say it it is typically near the beginning of each full word, such as on the second syllable.

Re: Ķaupe

Thank you! The "Ķ" makes a sort of [‘kʔ] sound. If that makes sense. I'd love to gloss better, but I'm not sure of how! Tips? So is it an ejective? I think so... The letter has gone through several changes in Ķaupe's short life. I think miswrote the IPA since I moved it around. Listening to the sam...

Not a whole lot to go on, but I like the general look and feel of that sentence. What is k with the underdot? Also, some better glossing would be nice, but that can be learned. Thank you!

Ķaupe

Introducing my newest conlang project, Ķaupe . Meant to be somewhat similar in the way it looks and sounds to Pacific island languages, but mixed with... something else. Really not much created yet. I've got all the letters and their sounds (in IPA, heck yes) and I'm still deciding on a whole lot, b...

Re: Social Pressure in Conlanging?

I explain it as my art, which it really is. Why do people write poems or paint or compose music? For their own enjoyment. I see made up words and people as a medium for our art, the art of con-whatevering.

Re: Help me with some IPA

I think /d̪/ is correct. I listened to some recordings and explanations of the sound and it seems right. Thanks!

Help me with some IPA

I've got a sound (phonemes?) I need help finding the IPA for. It could be notated through using several symbols of IPA, but I don't know how I'd say you "mix" them together. It's like mixing <d> with <t>. I make the sound by putting the tip of my tongue on the back of my teeth and the top of my tong...
