I think this is one of the most fun scenarios in a relay like this, where you're presented with grammatical ambiguity and you have to make a decision because that ambiguity doesn't exist in your language.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

The fiery path that is ice! Ah, but do the leaves flow? It's interesting how not turning to look became turning away (from something), and then that something was interpreted as the restaurant, and so we got "I could not see the restaurant" where it had only been mentioned once in the original text....

Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

Things are done except for one more sentence to translate and then writing up more grammar; sorry for the delay, some health things came up in the real world and made the weekend as a whole supremely unproductive. Should be done tomorrow!

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Does anyone ever write up information on their conlangs' phonology, or anything else for that matter, using Optimality Theory? I don't think I've ever seen it, and I mean, fair enough. (I'm not personally an enormous fan.) Rules are easier to enumerate than constraints and no one wants to make a doz...

New season has been up for three episodes [:)] Anyone else watching it? Indeed! Whittaker is taking a little longer to grow on me than Capaldi did; she's still finding the character, and it'll take time, but she's off to a good start (and she nailed the dress sense - radiating a faint Baker-ish aur...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I had planned to write up a quick summary of Alál's verbal argument system, an overview of voices, and such. I had a list with little notes on how the various morphemes operate under various conditions. Then upon actually writing it out, I've found that this is... significantly more complicated than...

Blackfoot meets Pawnee and Alál?

Currently reworking the conlang of Undercommon I made for a friend's Pathfinder campaign, from the ground up. Now with 50% more Old High German loanwords and a slightly more English-ish grammar for the sake of the monoglot players who want to learn it. Have recently rediscovered an old love for the ...
