All I've got are radishes. Nothing to be done...
...make a salad!
I am reasonably sure that a salad would, existentially, be quite absurd.
A salad of just radishes would be the most absurd.

Have you thought about making a latex pdf file for Silvish? I think it might be worthy of those.
No, I hadn't thought about it. Maybe I'll look into LaTeX at some point. But no doubt I'd be just as unreliable updating a pdf as I am with this thread. [:$]

I could see the second flag being fun with a slightly-diagonal set of green-blue-green bars instead of waves. [:D]
Hmm, something like this? I can't find examples of slightly diagonal bars on flags, so the proportions might need tweaking.

Re: Silvish

I definitely like the first flag better. It's good. […] And I also like that coat-of-arms! Yay! Thank you. The second is outright bad . Oh no! [xD] Do you see a path to redemption? What do you think could improve? I really like both of them! The first one is definitely better as the flag for the co...

Re: Silvish

I need your opinions on some flag ideas for Silvia. Which do you like better? What would you change? The first design is meant to evoke the coat of arms, shown in my previous post. I've experimented with a lot of embellishments, but I'll just keep it simple for now. The second design is an attempt t...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Does the initial /i/ correspond to more than one phoneme in the Latin etymon.

Re: Nłokjenkaitää discussion thread.

Ok so that's clear now, thank you. Now I have another doubt: is it effective to some point to mark noun definiteness sintactically instead of using a declension? I see no reason why not. What were you thinking of in particular? And another question: in a language with more than one noun declension,...

And how should we mark the argument that passes to a non-core role in both voices (in this case, "a horse")? Which core case would be added or used in order to mark it? We'd mark it with a non-core case, or by some other method, like the prepositions a lot of European languages use (EDIT: in their ...

Yep, got it in one. Today's Rat Day. Hundreds flock to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania every year on February 2nd to see this very rat. Many were introduced to the holiday by the 1993 film "Rat Day", starring Bill Murray. Perhaps it is indeed the Rat Day of Bill Murray filmographic fame. The weather out...

And how could I fit passive or antipassive voices in a tripartite alignment (ergative, accusative and unmarked intransitive)? Can both voices coexist in a language's verbal system? Yes. It happens that the passive is more readily useful in nominative-accusative languages, and the antipassive is mor...

Re: Silvish

I've settled on something I like for the coat of arms of the country of Silvia, as opposed to the archdiocese. It's significantly younger than the diocesan arms, for one because the archdiocese existed before the County of Tarentaise was combined with it, and for two because the archbishops didn't a...
