Re: English Orthography Reform

Apart from the overthrow of the not-really-used-by-the-layman-anyway Runes, there has never been a total overhaul of English spelling. What there has been is norms, precedent, and analogy which evolve and become standardised. Any and all successful "reforms", such as they have been, have really been...

URGENT REQUEST Linguistics Dissertation: British English Speakers Required

Hi guys, Old-timers will probably remember me. Maybe not... I was always more on the ZBB. Anyway, I'm doing my dissertation for an MA in English Linguistics right now and I need participants for my study. Literally, all I need is around five minutes of your time. I need people who are willing to rec...

But what I mean is, what inspired this board to be set up considering we were already on Zompist?

Re: Why CBB?

The reason I say I've always liked the CBB is exactly what you say; people here are friendly, whereas on Zompist even admins/mods can be rude, trollish cocks. There is a perverse need to cause a ruck over on Zompist.

Why CBB?

I've always liked this board. But I'm curious: why was this board set up given that we have the Zompist board?

Bästa väg för att lära sig svenska?

Jag lära mig svenska med Duolingo och Routledge Colloquial Swedish. Jag bor i England och jag har inte mycket pengar. Vilken kurs, bok, or annan sak, är bästa för att lära mig svenska?

Också, förlåra mig min dålig svenska. [:$]

Re: Easy to Learn Conlangs?

Yeah, good ideas, RainChild. Not sure why you would want an auxlang-like Artlang, unless you're creating an artlang creole (i.e. a creole within your conworld). Anyway, don't neglect semantics! Something I read -- I think on Rick Harrison's site -- that I think is key, is this: language become diffi...

Re: Why a global auxlang is impossible and what is possible

Hi Eldin. Yes, my current auxlang is a "world auxlang". I very quickly realised that in order to make it "common" to all languages in the world, the differences between the various groups meant that you would end up only with the most rudimentary of pidgins. As you say and/or allude, the phonology w...
