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

Can a language with primary and secondary aspects have a null secondary aspect marker? I see no reason why not. Null markers are possible for any grammatical category. Whereas Ddoean's adjectives used to be formed with suffixes similar to <-xi>, they're now formed with suffixes based on the formati...

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

You say you've 'realised' that you can't make an applicative into a causative. But that's not what I said. I pointed out that applicatives often ARE used as causatives, and showed you how: I-nom him-ACC ate-APP = I ate because of him (i.e. he made me eat). I thought in a causative the cause has to ...

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

Well, Mothfolk in question apparently have no problem "... wear(ing) silk from other races than their own. they find it rude to wear your slik." Then you see my point. Either wearing the silk of your dead speciesmates only rises to the level of “rude” for the moths (possible, just probably an impor...

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

True; but AFAIK the process of obtaining silk kills the larva in the cocoon, while human hair can be harvested without harming the person on whose head it grows. Also true, for real silk worms. But if that's also the case of fruityloops' arthropods, it seems their tolerance for killing is higher th...

my moths prefer to wear silk from other races than their own. they find it rude to wear your slik. Which makes perfect sense. Who wears shoes made of human leather? And it's not as if anyone puts another person's hair on their head … Wait. But seriously, aren't human-hair wigs a better analog for s...
