Re: Language from sample (semi-serious)

In order to work out grammar, it might be nice to see the lyrics.

Fun project indeed!

Re: Lehola Galaxy Lifespeeding & Resulting Discussion [Split]

Kankonians look sort of like Tongans, Samoans, or Fijians the way I picture them. Some people to whom I've described them say they sound like African-Americans, or Persians/Iranians. Shaleyans are more like Scandinavians. Hitans -- Japanese or Korean, maybe? Junsu (the planet that includes Tenta) h...

Re: Bodus and the Bodusians

One nitpick: Habitable planets don't have icy moons, because ice evaporates at a very low temperature in vacuum. If the planet is warm enough to be habitable, its moons are too warm for ice to subsist on their surface. Wow, really? This guide mentions icy moons, so I assumed they were possible on a...

I don't identify as any ethnicity. Especially when it comes to the ones on typical lists.
Not even Filipino?

Re: Conlanger stereotype poll

Mind you, there is rather a depth to that question that really bears consideration. And possibly doesn't fit in this kind of poll at all. I mean, The World has been in my head & heart for so long, perhaps questions of identification get a touch, ah, difficult. Mmmmm. I think I know what you mean. W...

Well, yes.

Re: Conlanger stereotype poll

You could put Asian, you know. Screw with the System! I've actually pondered doing that before, since geographers say the Middle East is part of Asia. Also, the CIS, where many of my ancestors spent a few generations, straddles Eorope and Asia. Can I put an invented culture or ethnicity? You want t...

I usually have to put "Other" when asked my ethnicity, because most forms that ask don't have a category for Middle Eastern groups.

5. Ethnicity you primarily identify with: Other I hate to bother you again, but the list of ethnicities was only a list of examples and was not meant to be complete. If you identify as sometjing else, feel free to share exactly what it is! Maybe it actually is "Other"? One thing I've learned is tha...

Re: How NOT to Conworld.

I think to put this somewhat back on topic, a way I have personally found is a bad way to conworld is to keep changing your mind so that nothing is ever set and you can never actually do anything with it, not even presenting it by itself as a conworld! Try not to do this if at all possible! How not...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

This year, the unkempt wildflowery part of the yard is seeing an ebbing of Bells of Jerusalem (Ornithogalum), and a subsequent invasion of Henbane, Shotwell (Cardamine hirsuta), and now Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris). Just researched and found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yEHJ...

Re: CHirpie, a musical conlang

This is awesomeness incarnate!

Musical languages appear here from time to time (I've even described one of mine), but it's always wonderful to hear of another.

One can only wonder what a debate or discussion sounds like in Chirpie --- I imagine not unlike a Mozart opera.
