Re: Grammatical Numbers

My horribly unnaturalistic idea: Two numbers: GT - Greater than LT - Less than or equal to These numbers are only marked on either transitive verb forms (where they relate the agent and patient) and possessive markers (where they relate the possessor and possessee): man-ERG dog kick-PST-GT "The men ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

It probably won't work, to actually train the discriminator you need hundreds of thousands of examples. The best I could hope for is to get something that spits out nonsense "passages" that look like they're coherent conlang samples, but are just nonsense. And I'd have to fish up some endless source...

Re: Micalangs Scratchpad

Seriously though, it looks to me like you’re doing an NA style polylang with a heavy dose of Jappo influence? It's more like a cross between jappo and polynesian languages phonoaesthetically but, yes, basically. Were it mine, I’d keep them, because of the strict phonotactics and lack of labials, bo...

Re: how can offspring affect the hierarchical power structure among witches?

It is highly unimaginative and lazy at best to copy/paste the cissexist assumptions of our own society without examination, and assert them as literally true in your own world. At worst, it is complicity in something evil. It may be tempting to say "Ah, but those assumptions really are true in this ...

Re: how can offspring affect the hierarchical power structure among witches?

If they reproduce sexually, then intersex individuals exist. Sexual characteristics and endocrinal development are extremely complex and multi-modal and it's simply not possible for a species to exist where all of its members fit cleanly and naturally into strict male/female categories. If they have...

Re: how can offspring affect the hierarchical power structure among witches?

I personally would stay far the fuck away from any story that tried to sell me on its world working this way, because it unthinkingly replicates a lot of really ugly ideas about gender that our society unfortunately subscribes to. Some questions: - What about trans men? - What about trans women? - W...

It's vaguely Khoisan-esque, yes. If there's one skill I have it's crafting aesthetics to match certain natlangs or natlang families. Too bad it's worthless for what I want to do.
