Re: Benjamin and Southpaws

Completely unrelatedly, “Benjamin and the Southpaws” sounds like a great name for a country band.

I have two civilizations in relatively constant contact with each other by way of coastal trade, despite the two civilizations being hundreds of kilometres apart. But the contact is frequent enough that one civilization adopts the writing system of the other. Problem is one of the languages has clic...

Re: Making a logography, so intimidating

No you don't need to start with a logographic writing system. Maybe your proto-lang wasn't even written and the descendants adopted the writing system of another culture. And you overthink logographic systems too much, just draw literal stickmen doing things and go from there. For abstract concepts ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I decided to remove the Emphatic series from Vrkhazhian since I no longer think they fit with the character of Vrkhazhian.

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

They'd have to be unique glyph shapes, like I've done for Ha. Of course maybe I'll represent them with Gha and Zha since i already represent ejectives using the same letters as the plain series.

Not sure whether Ha fits with the rest of the letters, and I still can't think of glyphs for Ya and Wa.

Vrkhahian and Onschen now have a cursive script, known as Oñako or the Sealbone Script.

Seven ten two = 27?
Seven ten two one = 20/7?
Yes, minus the "one", it's just "seven-NMLZ ten two"

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

I mean, in English we can just say 'three four-hundredths' for 3/400. So if you wanted 1/27, you could say 'one twenty-and-seventh' or simply 'one twenty-seventh'. No, because one twenty seventh or "seventh ten two (one)" would be interpreted as 20/7. However, I'm not entirely sure I've understood ...

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

I don't know how my language can do fractions above 1/10 (e.g. 1/11 or 1/27) since my fractions are entirely nouns.

my numbers also behave like this:
20 = 2x10
200 = 2x100
2000 = 2x1000
2222 = 2 2x10 2x100 2x1000

This only works since the cardinals and ordinals are adjectives, not nouns.

Reworked Vrkhazhian postpositions. So now postpositions have both a static meaning or a dynamic meaning depending on the type of verb, static when used with stative verbs or the null copula predicate and dynamic when used with motion verbs. Noun that are the objects of post positions are always in t...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Completely reworked the numeral system of Vrkhazhian. The system is still base-12 as it always has been, but the words are different. Grammatically, they don't behave any different than adjective and thus agree in case (only nominative and genitive) and gender. Note: X = 10, E = 11 1₁₂ = tibs- (< tī...

Re: Should Romanisations be "Necessary"?

I think displaying a conscript in some real world writing system is good practice just as much as it's good practice to use the IPA. I've seen people Hellenize their conlangs instead of Romanize which is fine, and I Cyrillicize one of my conlangs, which is fine. But, that's really only for convenien...
