Re: Linguistic purism in conlangs

Insular Sarana maintains a strict position of absolutely no foreign influence in language or culture (basically an isolated solo conlang).

Mainland Sarana, or Symiric, however, loaned many basic words from the Sami, Finnic tribes, Balto-Slavics, and Indo-Iranians.

Re: Chervian language - Cerviņe talpe

This looks really great, and frankly, I'm slightly jealous. It's very Indo-European-ish, but esoteric at the same time.

I'd love to hear this though.

Can anyone please explain what is going on in this sentence:
