Re: Proposing to create a conlang with multiple people

A guess a big problem is that everyone might enjoy making decisions on word order and semantics, but everybody hates sitting down and write the vocabulary. That might be a reason why collaborative conlangs often don't go very far.

Re: Lingua Latina

Ad Lambuzhao:
Manifeste "gaius" non significat id quo ego putabam. Praeter nomine Gaius, ego putabam "gaius" significare "gavisus, laetus" sed non est sic, et solus nunc didici. Mea culpa, quod non satis meo lexico (dictionary?) utor. [:P]

Re: Contechnology

This religion is not the way you expect it to be. Usually God is used to keep order as it functions as a Deus ex machina to solve all problems, but this religion has no sentient God. God is the Law and the Law is God . This is the Law . Malethi’s original poem - [1] May the Energy flow by your mind...

Re: SapirWhorf

I hate to be an advocate of the theory, but I've noticed that I'm starting to be able to hear the differences between tones and length now of vowels. Perhaps my studying of linguistics has been opening up neuropathways?I haven't noticed this before and its creating some exciting ideas for languages...

Anaforuana and Abakwa: what are they?

After listening to a talk about the African writing heritage, I remained very impressed by a certain kind of writing the speaker had displayed, because it looked like some kind of nonlinear, maybe pictographic alphabet (?) that he called Abakwa. Little research on google shows (I think) that Abakwa ...

Eil - My Conlang

Here is the first public draft of my conlang, Eil. It's been now several years into development. There's more of it but I don't think it's all ready to be judged... Let me know what you think so far. More will come.

Re: Creating a multipurpose alphabet

Sorry for digging up this old thread but I thought it was better than creating a new one altogether! In fact, I have a big update as I have finally put shapes in place and I wanted to get some feedback on the script! Here it is: Introduction : This script isn’t at all complete and doesn’t aim to be,...

Re: Trust based "honorifics"

Some natlangs have levels of formal~informal interaction (I'm thinking of Romance languages). Italian L1 speaker here. We do have different forms to speak to people, which correspond roughly to ancient english you / thou contraposition. We use "lei" form (more respectful) for strangers and superior...

Re: Share your Conscripts

This is a very immature and rudimentary version of the conscript for Eil. The rules it follows are extremely rigid and programmatic so I really need feedback on how natural (or unnatural) it looks, because before it will evolve into looking like something that could actually be used as a script a lo...

Re: Why do you do it?

Thank you for all the great responses. It helped me relate and understand why I do what I do. If any of you care, I think I conlang because I want a way to get my ideas out there as they are, without further complexity added by language. In a way, I'm trying to create a language that gets language o...

Hey boards, So I was looking at this very section of the boards just a moment ago, and I realized there are A TON of constructed languages out there. So it came into my mind, why do you conlang?

Re: Meritocracies

I wish to quote the Empire in Rome, where for a long time the power was passed on from father to adoptive son; the emperors used to choose a "son" they deemed adequate to be an emperor, basically deciding who was going to be the next in power.
