I'm thinking my desert proto-people could be the first people in their desert to use the wheel for camel caravans. Not yet. I guess you can do it if your conpeople had the need and t...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

the time for proto-Sitr is unknown, and all known Sitr languages(or “dialects”, Sitr people usually call varieties of Sitr languages as “dialects” or “vernacular speech”) are from Old Sitr/Classical Sitr, it is not known if there are any Sitr languages evolved from pre-classical Sitr, it is likely t...

Re: Is diachronic conlanging worth it?

it can be worthy, however, I tend to use the “proto-language” mainly to control the outcome of the modern vocabulary so that they would look more plausible and more coherent as words of the same language.
