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

I think Micamo started the trend, but does anyone know why there is such a penchant for using Project <Mineral> as a placeholder name?

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

I'm picturing a form of poetry where lines are read backwards or what have you for two nested meanings.

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

I had never heard of that before. It certainly is interesting! In retrospect, I implied a more wide-ranging meaning then I had intended. What I mean to say is that I don't think most words have a sound that associates very deeply with any particular meaning. Some sounds seem harder, harsher or more ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Did you do this on Fonstruct? Looks a lot like what I tried to do years ago (and didn't suceed). No, but I suppose I could have... in theory. snip It says: Tçiʼʌclura /ʨi.ʔə̃. kluː .ɾa/. Love this. The name, the sounds, the script? All three? The romanization?! It looks very impressive! Thanks, Eld...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

That would be how it would be written if it weren't an example of the paired glyphs.

Also, I've crafted vowel markers as well which necessitates a bit of room above and below the lines

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

I don't see how any word, aside from onomatopoeia, can sound like what it means. These examples you have seem to prove the point for me.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Wrote my first word in my ridiculous script and probably-going-nowhere language. Which, honestly, is fine. I'm just glad to get the wheels turning again and remembering the things I have forgotten in the lull between forays unto this strange terra firma we call conlanging. https://www.frathwiki.com/...

Re: Various Styles

Holy crap does that look great! Seeing such a large block of it like that doesn't at all diminish it (I thought maybe it would, for some reason... maybe by drawing the eye to the fact that it has a finite number of shapes unlike hanzi's seemingly endless variety?). How did you arrive at all the nice...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

Perhaps the strangest script I have ever made... I mean, it was inspired by the logo for a trucking company I saw drive past on the highway about a week or two ago. Sooooo. Yeah Each pair of glyphs is (at the moment) for the same sound, but one is made to fit cleanly next to another glyph almost lik...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Thanks for the prompt and useful feedback. It had seemed to me to be plausibly weird. Good to see I wasn't too crazy and still remember a thing or two.

Now, methinks the vowels are weirder... maybe too weird.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

How weird of a consonant inventory is this? I am woefully out of practice and wanted to get something going again:

/m n ŋ~g/
/b t tɕ k ʔ/
/f ɕ h/
/l ɾ~d/

Edit: Now with added vowels:
/i ɛ u/
/aː oː/
/ə̃/

Re: The constants e and π in linguistics

People really seem to gravitate toward the number 3, both in the way in which we interloquate, as well as just in terms of structural organization, etc. As such, any significant constants that are in the range of 3 will seem more significant than they actually are, at least, IMO.

It is most definitely "貓" which Google Translate says is cat.

It is an awesome feature for determi...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

Do you have any more examples? I have had similar ideas in the past, and what I end up with is a system in which there are more than one way in which the same resultant character can be created which leads to way more ambiguity than I like. Have you run into a similar issue at all? If not, how have ...

Re: Tloko / Omya redux

The section where you describe the example glyphs (lyao, ntlu...) might be slightly more easy to parse if the example glyph was directly before the text explaining it and not in a block above ALL of the descriptions. There are a few small things like that throughout that could use a bit of moving ar...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

No /m/ is an interesting and noticeable thing... also, why do you use ogonek-o for /o/ wouldn't it make more sense for it to have its natural meaning and give the ogonek to schwa (in this case)?

An interesting inventory, to be sure.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

There doesn't seem to be much to go on in terms of the inflectional stuff, but I'll try my best to "Germanicize" the phonology and orthography somewhat. No promises that it'll be to your liking, though. For what it's worth, I think you'd be fine keeping it as it is, but if you really want to change...
