Well, if that's the general consensus I guess I'll find a different forum.

Re: Famous CBB Quotes Thread

Please stop it with the condescending tone. Yes, even in 2015 people may have shaky connections, even if only temporarily. I'd even say especially in 2015, what with everyone surfing on their mobile devices while in moving vehicles and so on. Please don't do that. Just because you can handle it does...

Re: The Majestic 4th Conversation Thread

In 2015, surely OS X can't be the only system to offer a quick to use character map that's almost as efficient as dead keys? Every system I've used in the last 10 years has it (the Mac, Linux, Windows). Well, OS X has an older, not so quick to use one in addition. I don't mean the old one. I mean o...

I'm not going to look in that spoiler...

Sometimes the CSS might load slow or not at all and the image...

Re: Which Dialect is This?

I seem to have generalised "there's" (but not "there is", i.e. "there's many reasons" sounds fine but "there is many reasons" does not) even when talking about plural things even tho I know that it's really "incorrect", and as a non-native I'm still quite sure I picked this up passively from natives.

Re: The Majestic 4th Conversation Thread

That's not really true in practice tho. Sure you can learn Mandarin entirely orally if you want, but eventually that just won't work out. If you really do intend to use the language in a realistic way, go to or live in China and so on, you have to learn the script. It is part of the language. When p...

-snipping cool water physics stuff- That looks really nice. It fits with the overall art style of the various other bits and pieces of this that you've shown us, it's a nice balance between realism and stylization. Kinda has a "chunky" look that I like. Thanks! And yeah, I was actually jokingly say...

Neat. What are they for, if anything? Conworld or story stuff? Or just random draw r ing practice? Any significance to the bracelet(?) that's being held? Would be fun to see you adding some personal twist to the classic manga style, anyhow. Perhaps influenced by local art from wherever you're from? ...

Post your best ADANEWs here. My most recent ADANEW is probably not that impressive.

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

most French feminine adjective forms with an additional consonant compared to the masculine end in coronal consonants such as /t n s/ Just a nitpick: I'd say /z/ is more common than /s/. You're right, at least if the figures in this paper are correct and I'm reading them accurately. 80.2 % invariab...

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Is there any natlang that has an instrumental case that specifically denotes the means of currency, like paying with a specific thing?

I'm obviously talking about something with an obviously green nuance here and not whatever your archetype perception of turquoise happens to be, which would be unambiguous in the case I presented.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Looks more like two words (adjectives) IMO.

Supercalifragilistic, expialidocious.

I can't spontaneously think of any compound adjective where one of the components ends in -ic so it sounds weird for me to consider this one word.
