Re: Anglish Creation Thread

Anglish in the case of these proposals seems to be something of a misnomer. Typically, the whole point of Anglish is to create a variant of English that removes Romance, Greek and Latin words, replacing them with Germanic equivalents. As a result, it is a little peculiar to adopt the name of Anglish...

Re: Does your conlang satisfy you?

Yes, I'm nearly entirely satisfied by my language. It is far from perfect, but designedly so; what naturalistic language would be perfect? After a decade, this year, of developing it, I still enjoy communicating in and adding to the language. The problem is now that I get ideas for other languages t...

Re: Non-English Orthography Reform

To be fair, I think that's actually quite a common occurrence with orthography reforms. Road signs and stuff written in the old system don't just get replaced overnight, nor do even all new books or newspapers immediately switch to the new one; there tends to be a transition period that can last li...

In such a circumstance, people would be surrounded by one orthography (which has a pedigree dating back hundreds of years), and expected to use another, crafted by someone with a cursory knowledge of the language, and filled with unnecessary changes that disfigure a very well-established orthography...
