Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

My translation is complete! Now I just have to somehow create a grammar guide that will be as pleasant and smooth for loglorn to work with as alynnidalar's was for me. This...is not likely to happen, but I'm going to try my level best. I should be able to pass it on tomorrow, or Monday at the lates...

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Sal, do you have any post-1970 examples? There's a lot of books I can think of that do extensive footnotes for humor (Discworld and the Bartimaeus Trilogy immediately come to mind), but I'm not sure if that's the sort of thing you mean, or if you mean something more like The Princess Bride , where t...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I finally finished my work for the relay. [xD] This is the longest text in Tirina that I've translated in quite awhile. I'm pleased to discover I haven't lost all that much--aside from looking up usage of some prepositions and how, exactly, I translated certain relative clauses in the past, I didn't...

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

Torch has been passed! Sorry for the delay, folks. Didn't end up having as much time to work on it as I thought I would, so I didn't budget my time properly. [:$]

As a reminder, I ended up using Tirina, not Azen.

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

Unfortunately, I'm going to need another day or so--sorry for the delay but I haven't quite gotten the translation/grammar finished yet! I've ended up using Tirina rather than Azen, because neither Azen nor I was quite up to the task.

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

Could I be switched with ArryogVik? I'm going to be coming back from vacation in the middle of my currently-scheduled time and I'm not sure I'd be able to get it done in time. (alternately, if the schedule slips a day, I can stay where I am--just would rather start 12/29 or 12/30 than 12/28) Ring 1...

A good post, IMO. [:P] Much less specific politics and much more general things to consider.

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

I shall be participating with Azen, although I reserve the right to abruptly change to Tirina if it seems too hard. [;)]

Mention of lyocite veins getting larger as they get nearer to Despair made me think: what happens if you try to dig under Despair? Does it extend down into the earth as well?

Sonata Arctica has been coming up on Spotify quite a lot lately for me! I've liked what I've heard so far. Haven't actually sat down and listened to any of their albums properly, though.

In that case I would expect all insects to have similar chests, with little connection to gender.

Re: Star Wars Universe Discussion [Split Topic]

You all might appreciate this--the latest argument I've seen against The Last Jedi is that it has a planet with salt on the surface. I'm not entirely clear why someone thought a salt planet was the last straw, but I'm delighted they've provided me with the silliest argument yet to "prove" The Last J...
