Janko looks hotter in that video than on his personal website. It's the lighting and make-up that enhances/hinders.

Also, that video has many more views than most typical conlang videos lol

But why are comments disabled?! Grahh!!
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

I'm now curious as to how many conlang number systems he's memorised. I know he has some of my older ones (that.. won't have aged well).

Very nice; where to? I found Stockholm quite nice, and surprisingly not that expensive (by Luxembourg standards).
And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise;
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thigh...

Looking for subjects to appear on banknotes. Inquire within.

Luxembourg has the highest GDP in the world?

GDP and cost of living are not the same.

Last night I was watching Stephen Colbert and he mentioned that Seth Meyers and “his beautiful wife” have had a baby.

Just now I was looking at Khemekhis’s “Apposition” thread and it triggered the following question in my mind:

How can we tell when an adjective is appositional and when it is restrictive?

Did Stephen mean “Seth’s wife ( who is also beautiful )”? Or did he mean “the beautiful one of Seth’s wives (not the ugly one)”?

Without applying encyclopedic knowledge that not everyone has, how would I have known (or rather how would some other listener have known) which he meant?
