Re: Ive been bashed alot for not being fluent in IPA....

So why would their be so much grief for a conlanger hobbyist not being familiar with IPA? what ahzoh said; the reason language classes dont use it cus they want to be accessible--they still you how to pronounce...

Salga de mi casa! en este caso, creo que se prefieran "vete de mi casa"; para mi, y para mi profesor, "salir" significa "leave for a specific reason" como "hes leaving (for a night out on the town)" y "irse" significa "leave in general" como "hes leaving school at 3" here, i think that (spanish spe...

Re: Ezarine - Ezȧrine

My only criticism is that it doesn't seem unique What do you mean? It feels french, no offense. I'm not used to non-English languages. It seems too much of a memorization tasks. Maybe you should fuse some conjugations so that it seems more naturalistic. I don't know, I'm not a Romance person. it do...

Creo que me caiga en el lado leísta en cuanto a "confundir". I think I'd side with the leists concerning "confundir". por qué piensas que se debe usar leísmo? estoy curioso. para mi, sólo se usa leísmo en casos de "elision," por ejemplo (del artículo de Wikipedia que diste): why do ya think that le...
