You may want to actually present some info about your language in the thread. So far, it seems like the vast majority of info here is from people making guesses about your language, I mean, it wasn't until the second page that we even found out it was a creole!
I second this; it would be nice to actually have some factual information from you instead of having to guess absolutely everything. Puzzles can be fun, but not without clues. It seems like a cool interesting conlang, and I know I'm not the only one who would love to see more.

Do you reckon that such a utensil would be practical in real life, or at least usable?

I guess I just work as a loose cannon when it comes to my hypothetical situations.

duh
Ah, a translation request! Tis unusual for a glossopoet to seek our help in translating their own invented languages, but, your know, sometimes the mind wanders and one forgets! Anywho, here at St. Hindy's Nagsausaulitan Ouiqa Institute for Invented Langauges, Bureau of Troublesome Translations Department, we're happy to oblige.

So, let's see!

Yes, this is clearly a mixed language. We can see by all the doubled vowels and funny squiggles that we're dealing with a very early form of Miitel Deetsche mixed with various bits of this and that. So, let's get translating!

Looking back on Queen Ferst's bum with
no, oy vey!, tuchas, ya, no, oy vey!, enough there:
Baybee, you be the one! Sit down, you! My own
virgin goddess, my own endeavoursome queen!

Ya. Hope that helps!

I don't see why not.

(Also, the ilti (the sapient species of Javarti) have more reptilian tongues than humans do -- they are quite lacertilian/serpentine. I'm not sure how this would affect their silverware.)

I don't usually say anything negative about anything, especially when it comes to subjective stuff like the quality of conlangs, but in my opinion this may be the worst conlang ever. It's not just because I don't really like creoles in the first place and because as a speaker of Finnish and English this just looks like a random mix of the two with the Swedish letter Å thrown in at random (although those things obviously influence my view on it), but because it's inconsistent. You clearly mess with the English, which is good and naturalistic for a creole, but you don't do anything to the Finnish words. If you changed their spelling as well to fit your orthography, that wouldn't be a problem. But as it is now, it doesn't seem like a creole; it seems like a pidgin that has just started emerging, but even in that scenario the Finnish words would probably be altered as well unless it was one spoken in Finland.

And no, I don't understand most of your conlang. That may be because I don't even want to put any effort into trying, though...

Thrice filled in enough of the blanks for it to be recognizable - Whole Again, by Atomic Kitten?

Looking back on when we first met
I cannot escape and I cannot forget
Baby, you're the one, you still turn me on
You can make me whole again


...I'd love you know how you'd translate the phrase "atomic kitten" into this language!

Teengirlsquad, are you a girl or a boy? Your screenname made me think you were a girl (and a teen girl at that), but the person in the YouTube videos appears to be male. Are you the boy in the YouTube videos?

Neither had I. Found it through creative Googling using what you'd deciphered.

I had heard of Atomic Kitten, but didn't know this song. One of many artists for which I've heard of them but never heard their music. (I've never heard a Jonas Brothers song, for instance, nor a song from High School Musical).
