Re: Language practice thread

Thosaigh mé ag foghlaim Gaeilge arís roinnt lae ó shin ach is deacair a foghlaim teanga nuair nach bhfuil aithne ag duine ar dhuine éigin ar féidir an teanga sin ag labhairt leis. I started to learn Irish again a few days ago, but it is hard to learn a language when you don't know anyone who is abl...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Re: If YOU founded a country, how would it work?

You know guns are also used for hunting, right? A couple people mentioned conworlds and con-countries, but is anyone else's not in any way ideal? Not that I never consider what a utopia might be like, but my conworld is anything but--in fact, it's kind of a hell-hole. I'm not much of an active conwo...

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

I'd like to try doing an Uto-Aztecan conlang spoken in Mexico, but I can't decide what branch to work from. Which Uto-Aztecan branches in Mexico (besides Nahuan) have enough documentation to work with?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

(Wow I haven't posted here in a while) I've gotten various things done since I posted on the CBB last, but I wanted to mention just what I did today. I've made at least four sad attempts at making a logography for often undeveloped conlangs, but today and yesterday I've gotten the furthest in a logo...

Re: Language practice thread

Se a palavra seguinte empeça com /i/ (mas não /j/), se deve usar "e".
If the next word starts with /i/ (but not /j/), you should use "e".

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

What are some ways that a split-ergative system could arise from an ergative-absolutive system and what would cause the shift?

I'm just looking for a general guideline rather than a specific detailed strategy (if that makes sense) so it doesn't completely come from someone else.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been working much less on my conlangs than I used to a while ago, but I still conlang even for a little bit most days. In the last week I've been doing some sound changes from Classical Kauzic to Ythnandosian, and some of those sound changes involve the creation of nasalized vowels. I didn't fe...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay VIII

I love the woman who appears out of nowhere (...) This one was certainly my error; I received a "person" from Smtuval, but I didn't have a generic word for person (and refused to create one due to language-internal reasons); so I had to decide between a man and a woman. I basically threw a coin. He...

Let's all use our own interpretation of words now. That won't cause any confusion. :roll:

Re: pic of the day...

I've always wondered this but never bothered to ask. Why does the occasional word you type have a random acute or grave? Is it intentional to provide some emphasis I'm not picking up on?
