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...

I'm not going to look in that spoiler... Upon hearing about others looking at an image of an oromaxillary surgery (aka, the person's face was rent into two) Could we please not post that sort of stuff directly as images even in spoilers? 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: Other Creativity

-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?

Post your best ADANEWs here. My most recent ADANEW is probably not that impressive. I just noticed once that in English and especially in German people will sometimes end their questions with "or", sometimes without changing the syntax or anything, like "You are going to the store, or...?"

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?

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.

Re: English and typology

I think it sounds silly so I've made the conscious decision to have such constructions be "bad form" in my conlang, perhaps seen as silly "baby talk".

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

Does anyone know how languages that distinguish alienable vs. inalienable possession "usually" mark that difference in predicative clauses? Does either type correlate with a specific construction, etc.? Do you think you that predicative inalienable constrcutions are that frequent? 'I have a head' o...

Re: What will not kill you makes you stronger.

Something like this, maybe.

Note: TR stands for transitive but often has a causative meaning.

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

Considering some languages seem to have more or less devoted cases to denoting "in (a language)", this doesn't seem too bonkers, no. No real plans — just curious! It'd be very easy to add to my current conlang considering ATM "cases" are really just weakly stressed verbs and I could easily just use ...

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

Yeah, but it might as well jokingly or seriously be used on any noun that was used for payment.

Like, 'she got dinner sock-CURRENCY_INST' = 'she bought dinner for/using/with a sock', and it could never be ambiguously mistaken for some regular instrumental or comitative or benefactive or w/e.
