Re: Toki Pona conversation thread

mi ken toki toki. taso mi pilin e ni: sina wile toki e "mi ken ala ken toki toki?" anu "mi ken toki toki, anu seme?".
We can talk about language. But I think, you have to say "mi ken ala ken toki toki?" or "mi ken toki toki, anu seme?"

Re: Orthographic quirks in natlangs

I don't know if we've had this already, but Modern Greek has ντ (nt) for /d/, μπ (mp) for /b/ and γκ (gk) for /g/. Most of them are only used in loan words, though.

Re: Creating idioms and slang in your conlang

Derovian (I am just going to cover the slang of the capital Soldôrin) slang is full of metaphorical new words and a few simplifications in grammar. Consonant mutation in standard-Derovian is applied to the last letter of the stem. Not in colloquial Derovian. Moreover, imperatives are shortened from ...

Any way, in the German thread also orthographic rules are allowed.
Besides, isn't orthography part of the grammar (if you follow the definition of "grammar ≠ just morphology&syntax")?
