Re: The single and lonely conlanger

The title sounds like the lamest personal ad ever. Re: Factories: We should build starships so we can fly out into the universe and find the basic philosophical concept of the subjectivity of value. Usefulness is not a simple binary. Unless we're all utilitarians. In which case fuck you all, I give ...

Re: IPA, X-SAMPA or Z-SAMPA - Your Input

<SNIP> E.g. a Greek <ν> looks like a <v>, <ω> like a <w>, etc. At least now, you know that <n>, <ɲ>, <ɳ> and <ŋ> are all slight variations of /n/. <SNIP> I meant replacing, not adding. The Greek v and w looking like the Latin v and w is immaterial; we wouldn't be using the Latin characters. First, ...

Re: Conworlding Pet Peeves

for example most Asian (in the sense that they're located mainly in Asia, not that they are typically chosen by asians, although that would sort of make sense >.>) religions are non-theistic, which imo is the way to go, you get a decent set of morals (usually) without getting thrown into a fantasy ...

Re: Taian

Your use of a word that directly translates as "to shed" in the same manor as contemporary English metaphorical use of "to shed" is a bit conspicuous. Ofcourse, if this isn't a problem for you than it's not a problem. As long as you're achieving your design goals everything is great. That's why you ...

Re: Taian

I can tear new orifices if need be. :) A thought: <Tō hēme> as "the blood" is just a little transparently stolen from Ancient Greek. Which is fine if you don't mind folks (like me) noticing this. But if you want your lang to be less obvious in its borrowings, you might need to switch things up a lit...
