Re: GovLang for Fractal Federation fictional universe

there's not really a thing that is "efficient language" because language is limited by the fact that it needs to be both spoken and heard. The average sentence in a spoken language will have the same amount of meaning as the average sentence in another. Since human processing capabilities do not dif...

Re: How to make a Celtic lostlang?

Iberian Romance and Sardinian both have intervocalic lenition, but I don't think that's ever considered a form of mutation the way it is in modern Insular Celtic languages

Re: sQwedgepad

So I've just started work on one of perhaps the most extensive projects I think I've ever conceived. As usual it's diachronic, but basically I'm making an entire world of languages. Right now I've committed to making at least 8 protolanguages of varying sizes. In the end it will probably amount to 2...

Re: English Orthography Reform

don't change words where there's no reason too. Maintain the basic spellings known where possible, and where they don't conflict grately with the currint language.

Re: English Orthography Reform

Hot take: English orthography reform is already happening, and you've probably engaged in it without noticing it. If you've ever spelled homogenous then yes, you're a part of the process.
