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

Given all the changes I've made to Alál in the last few years, I'd like to get back to putting together proper documentation for it. Since I'll have to rewrite almost all of what I wrote in the existing Alál thread to bring it up to date, do y'all think it'd be more efficient / less messy to just st...

Re: where to study linguistics/conlang in U.S.?

This is a little late, but Swarthmore College, outside Philly, is a small liberal arts school with a good linguistics program (I'm biased - it was my undergrad - but the teaching there was very personalized and it was super easy to get involved in actual research as early as sophomore year). Nathan ...

Re: A ridiculous conlang: how to?

For a dose of morphological oh-god-why... 'Qytʃün-'Çyŋk, but more so? That's all agglutinative, though. Need to throw, uh... multiple layers of infixation in there.

Re: CHirpie, a musical conlang

The idea of chord words is really interesting. Do all words have chord equivalents? How is a chord-word related to/derived from its non-chord counterpart?

Re: Anyone ever make or translate songs in their conlangs?

I enjoy translating songs into various conlangs; trying to keep the rhythmic structure is a really nice challenge. It's one of my main ways of developing vocabulary.
