Re: False friends and other unfortunate coincidences

Aren't all :deu: words with a /x/ that is not syllable-final, loan words, unless their is a vowel-initial suffix? I would have never guessed :esp: <carajo> though, I would have guessed a West Slavic loan. Maybe a better way to say it than "syllable-final" would be "in the coda of a syllable", since...

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

I think I read about this in the Multiverse Inn! So gaining back your testicles and preserving your masculinity comes with a very tragic price. A Kankonian or Bodusian or Hapoishan from the Lehola Galaxy could read this and be glad werewolves weren't real in Lehola. Good memory! I didn't recall tha...

3. Right-handedness (writing, pitching, using scissors, cultery), though I play racquet sports with my left (quasi-ambidextrous?)
So you're saying you're cross-handed?

Re: Other Creativity

Really? I always thought Ross came from the Scottish surname Ross, which in turn came from a word meaning "red" (cognate with Italian Rosso and Russo).

It was likely a typo.
Considering Fruityloops also wrote "butterifles" and "transaltes", I'm pretty sure it was probably just another transposal.

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

It's a mockingly defensive way of saying a general description fits you specifically, with such accuracy that you feel violated. YMMV; it took me awhile to come up with that definition.
Oh, OK, thanks for the explanation.

Are you the ultimate conlanger stereotype? Who's the most archetypal conlanger here? And what IS the actual profile of a typical conlanger, anyway? Let us find out! 1. Gender (cisfemale, cismale, transfemale, transmale, bigendered AMAB, bigendered AFAB, agendered AMAB, agendered AFAB, or whatever) 2...

http://conworld.wikia.com/wiki/Lonniformia That was fun to read! You've clearly put thought into their taxonomy. (I also learned a bit of natbiology: amphibians don't have ankles!)

I don't have a cat. I grew up in a household in which my mother was allergic to both dog fur and cat fur, so we didn't have any pets of the order Carnivora. Instead we kept rodent pets . . . guinea pigs, mice, hamsters. Now my sister and her brother-in-law have a dog, Poppin. Poppin barked when he f...
