Thanks for noticing it, English is not my native language.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Nice! By the way, it sounds as if you had a lisp. :wat: I'm sometimes a bit lispy, but my malicious microphone makes it sound way worse than it is in real life. Does it sound as bad in other videos, or does it sound only bad in this one? When recording this video, I sat closer to my microphone than...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I re-recorded the audio for the introduction to my video series, because the 500 edits in the previous version slowly became noticeable in the recording. Is that video series on YouTube? What is your channel name? --- Yesterday I made a second episode for Bløjhvåtterskyll in Tiny Bits. Not sure whe...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I am working with a vowel system with the following monophthongs: i y ɛ u a ɔ I want the following diphthongs for sure: ɔi and ɛi I want to make one with a and either i and y. Would ai be distinct enough from ɛi in a language with so few diphthongs? Does anyone know a language that has ay? Bløjhvåt...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

But what's better? Should I be talking English or talking Bløjhvåtterskyll with English subtitles during a grammar explanation? I recommend discussing your conlang(s) in a natlang metalanguage, and working your examples in a conlang object-language. But that's just me. I could be wrong. https://www...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I guess I should have used some "sarcasm points" or "irony smilies" or whatever in my post. Or maybe not; maybe you did, in fact, get that I don't recommend doing a second-language course entirely in that language. Of course, in serio, I recommend you do the bulk of the video in the L1 of your targ...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Keep in mind some schools' insistence that courses about French should be conducted entirely in French, or courses in Spanish should be conducted entirely in Spanish, or mutatis mutandis ceteris parabus German, Japanese, Mandarin, Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, etc. Do your entire video only in a c...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

A simple question, but the answers are probably worthful to keep in mind when I'm making my own: of which things should a good conlang video course consist? Videos about words, grammar and conversations? Translations? Texts? Anything else?

The Making Of... A Course For Bløjhvåtterskyll

Thousands of words. Hundreds of grammar rules. Dozens of irregularities. Eight cases. One language. Teaching a language isn't that easy. Teaching a language in a way that other people stay interested, is almost impossible. But I'm going to try it. I present to you my current project: A "Professional...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Long time no see! I've joined Conworkshop.info a while ago and I'm a little more active there than here. Today, I accomplished making a song in Bløjhvåtterskyll. (actually, I made it a few days ago but I uploaded it today) This means I've continued my YouTube channel on Bløjhvåtterskyll. In the mean...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I started creating a new conlang, called Uзςeë, which is pronounced as "Vrhche", with a rolling r. Bløjhvåtterskyll will still be my main conlang. I'm having some kind of exam week or test week right now, so I decided to create a new conlang... my logic [>_<] The script of Uзςeë is a weird mix of La...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I'm getting more and more fluent in my language. When I was going to school by bike today, I've just talked for ten minutes to myself in Bløjhvåtterskyll, saying the things I saw (there aren't many trees there), I felt (it's raining) etc. Also, some non-conlangers are apparently interested in my lan...
