Re: How do you say "I love you" in your conlang(s)?

Why doesn't all this stuff go to the Translations section? That would be a perfect place for it.

Re: How to pronounce the palatal lateral approximant?

[ʎ] is not my favorite sound to have as a phoneme, I think I often mispronounce it as [ʝ] or [ɟ]. The correct way is to say [j] and ...well... make it lateral :-)

Re: aah, colourblind issues!!! :D

Blue is not OK, that's the color of ordinary members. The problem is not limited to this website. Some kind of software color filter that would alter colors on the screen to be more distinct for you would be a systematic solution for you. Compiz (on Linux) can filter colors in any window and it's po...

Re: Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Aentoui only has three stops: /b/, /t/, /k/. Is it really that weird if I have /b/ and not /p/, with /b/ being the only voiced stop in the set? It's not really weird, it is well attested on Earth. Look at Arabic or Berber languages. Some American language also has it. Your consonant inventory is re...

Re: some news

1. Get rid of the Teach & Learn First of, no one has posted there since the board opened. Second, it wasn't that popular on the old board either. Hence, I conclude that it is of no interest. It also doesn't fit the main concept of the board, which is conlangery. And, really, this place won't be the...

Re: Natlang radio online.

I'd guess that it's because something are easier/better said in some languages. This happens to me all the time, I have something I want to say but is doesn't translate at all, so I can't because I'm stuck with a bunch of monoglots. Also, I know that in Hindi movies at least they like to throw in s...

Of course you can make a Quenya or Klingon language pack if it's worth the effort to you.

Re: some news

There are other channels (like IRC) for asking quick questions without any permanent value worth keeping. As far as I've seen, Questions that appear in ZBB's C&C Quickies often trigger a discussion worth keeping and there is a dilemma whether to ask in the Quickies or in the less pruned Conlangs&Con...

Re: Natlang radio online.

Cool. On this radio they're code-switching all the time - about half talking English (a language I can understand) and half Tamil (which I totally don't, of course). That's weird, talking two languages at the same time (not just saying something in one time to time while talking the other but really...

Re: New Logo for CBB

The light blue "conlangs, conworlds, linguistics" resemble color of links so they could be misinterpreted as links. A variant where they are black may be better:

Now I realized it was the transparent one Maxmilian liked. It looks the same in the white background of citation.

Re: some news

I am strongly against pruning. C&C Quickies on ZBB have more or less the same content as Conlangery&Conworlds, just with the difference that it will be gone in a few days or weeks. This is IMHO a wrong way to go and among reasons why I like CBB more than ZBB. The current division looks fine to me. I...

Also, the new forum software phpbb3 uses UTF-8, so changing the language is not harmful anymore. It will not make display of any characters incorrect.
