Dr. Asperger . . . worked with the Nazis.
I checked out Wikipedia, and it turns out it's true!

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

I would think that the principal parts of a noun in Latin would be the two parts like agricola, agricolae, or princeps, principis, that are given in Latin books.

They should change it from "bovine mammals" to "bovid mammals". That'd get the goats and sheep in.

Re: The CBB Conlang Census

I never thought of it like that. Why do you think it's like that? What about my other stuff like Dijo (the one I got the furthest with)? Orderlang embodies the orderly, auxlangish or engelangish way you conlang and the way you like structure in everything, your INTJ nature. It's the "conlang of hat...

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

Do you guys have defective nouns/verbs in your conlangs? A defective word being one that is missing certain case or tense forms that it could plausibly have. An example being how the English word can has no infinitive, so you have to say to be able , or the Latin verb inquit , which is limited to o...

However, Mormonism is heavily represented in the genre - certainly out of all proportion to its prevalence! The most prominent is Orson Scott Card, who is not just Mormon but very demonstratively so. Tracy Hickman, co-author of the Dragonlance books, is another example. And L.E. Modesitt Jr is, as ...

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 learned to walk and talk in Texas! The most formative years of them all!

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

I have what might be described as a "universalist" approach to religion: I believe there is some truth to be found in all religions, that there is no "one true religion", but that all religions are an attempt at accessing the Creator. Because of this, I've long been interested in the world's religi...

You don't have Orderlang in this thread, OTheB? To be completely honest, I considered removing Inyi and Dijo considering they're both dead projects and are non-functional from lack of vocabulary. [:'(] Well, at least your Orderlang is the most OTheB-esque conlang on this board. It deserves to be li...

Re: The snowball game: translating with only 625 words

With thanks to Lao Kou, I've edited the OP so the word lists are in alphabetical order. I've also removed some semantically distinguished entries (like "daughter (of a mother)" and "daughter (of a dather)") that English doesn't distinguish, since people seemed to be playing this game without regards...
