Ithkuil was not built to be spoken, it's an engelang that answers the question "how utterly compact and succint can a language get when it doesn't have to be spoken by people". The answer apparently is "pretty fuckin' succint"

Well, yes; I considered adding "out of context" to the thread title, but there wasn't room.
It's funnier out of context.
I might somewhat dispute your claim that there isn't more overlap than difference between what you meant to say and what the out-of-context quote means. But whatever.

So, that's the phonemic structure. How is it realised phonetically? I propose it be realised [skwɔːɫ]

1) /z/ is devoiced word-initially.
2) /w/ is strengthened to /kw/ between and a vowel.
3) /ə/ is realised as /ɔː/ in a stressed syllable after [w].
4) /r/ is lateralised and velarised after /ɔː/.
5) Word-final /ə/ is dropped.

thaen wrote:I'm no expert on the multiverse theory, but if it works like i think it does, then somewhere out in the infinity of universes, there is a culture of people you have described here, speaking languages you have described here. So that means there is no "conlanguage" or "conculture," only languages and cultures that our subconscious mind "picks up on" from other alternate universes, and we interpret it as creation. That may not have come across clearly, but it's pretty deep, IMO. Somewhere someone was born into the Mithara culture, speaking Mithara. Someone else, Siwa. Ithkuil. Project Steppe. Fearyan. Pazmat. Somewhere someone is spinning a katana-shotgun bow staff that rips open reality. And we get to witness it. Know it all intimately. We are Oracles. Seers. We are Conlangers.

Khemehekis wrote:What changes have you seen in conlanging between now and the time you first started participating in the online conlanging community?
A very interesting question indeed! I'm sure the greatest change of all, since I first ventured into Faerie in the first place, is that there is now actually such a community! When I started, there was only Void. If there was anyone else out there, I had no knowledge of their work or even their existence. Then some brave souls called into existence the Conlang List (back in 1991), though I wouldn't hear about it for many years yet. Even when I did learn about it, I was very hesitant to join such a forum -- for me this is still very much a secret vice. Even now, it is something I never speak of to even friends and family. And even here in this place of wonders, I tend to reserve more than I reveal.

And then some most curious thing happened -- the cosmic egg cracked open, spilling its glossopoetic goo all over the Void...

In a span of 20 years, we've gone from nothing to everything... Anymore we've got a veritable proliferation of options, from traditional email lists to forums like this to blogs to Youtube and social media outlets. Conlanging is definitely out in the open now, it's in the public consciousness in a way that was never true before, even though many people were aware that Tolkien had invented some languages. It is becoming recognised as the art it is. The younger generations getting started the last five years or so, in my opinion, simply have no concept of what "secret vice" truly entails. Everywhere a budding conlanger turns, she's got LotR here, Star Trek there, Game of Thrones and Avatar over yonder -- and those are just the big budget conlangs that everyone knows about! Anymore they've got how-to books teaching methodologies for making languages and worlds -- things completely out of my early experience! I had a big dictionary that had a chart of different kinds of ancient alphabets; I had On Beyond Zebra; I had the appendices in LotR -- not much to go on! Anymore they've got classes on conlanging in universities! They've got Youtube tutorials! Heck, they've even got a jobs board for the keen conlanger to try her hand at the Work on a professional level! Truly the oyster is the modern conlangers' world! There is simply a smorgasbord of community and a glut of material out there for the interested conlanger to peruse. And, of course, there are plenty of places to showcase all that creativity!

So, yeah, the biggest change of all, I think, is the death of the Secret Vice, and I don't bemoan my generation being the last, really, to come up alone, without community. For, rising from its ashes is the new Open Source Glossopoesy.

What "Galb" means, and what "to Galbate" means, I have no idea.
A female Galbator would clearly be a Galbatrix. No o there.
