Re: The CBB Conlang Census

As soon as I complete a conlang that in my opinion is worth a crap I will post it on my dropbox and link to it in a post. [:D]

Re: What I have been working on

Now, the language is not so much like the one from that book I read, as I realized even if he addded 10 more books about the language and flushed it out totally, it would still be minimalistic. With a limited number of phonemes for meanings to throw together to make words, it's hard to comfortably s...

Re: What I have been working on

Ok so once again it has been a while since my last post but I have been keeping busy. I am creating a new conlang, based on a book called purpose and structure of an experimental language. In the book, the author made some phonemes to mean certain basic things, and made words by combining phonemes. ...

Re: What I have been working on

Well I am further along with the language now, and have written a small grammar for it, complete with a English Dalig word list and a Dalig English word list so you can now search both ways. It is available here https://www.dropbox.com/s/gipo6qbaxpehskk/A%20COMPETE%20DALIG%20GRAMMAR.pdf?dl=0 . The w...

Re: What I have been working on

There are still some special characters in my language, but not near as many as there was. I went from 13 vowels down to 9, so I feel OK about it. also am using a trial of an excel add in. It is kutools. One of the features is I can highlight a spreadsheet column full of words and tell it to reverse...

Re: What I have been working on

Well, I took out some English words from my example words for my sounds which a new friend recommended I do, and he was right it's much better now. I also modified my script to include a place holder as words are now written in groups of 2 with one going above the other. It is still written right to...

Re: What I have been working on

Well, you've done the IPA, which should keep those folks somewhat at bay. I've never been averse or adverse to the "as in" approach; in fact I relish it (he said, opening himself to "this is why IPA makes life easier" criticism). I think, however, I would aim at more cardinal values of American Eng...

I agree. Easier to rip out a toenail, it hurts less than waiting for a politician's answer.

Re: What I have been working on

Ok, so Nagala went bust as it were, but I re-purposed it and several other language attempts into a better one called Dalig. Now i have a problem of since I based it on the American English vowels, and the Latin vowels, I have 1 o, 4 A's 2 E's 2 I's and 2 U's. So a lot of characters with funny stuff...

Re: What I have been working on

I can't have a [st] cluster, but I can have [ʃr̆], so I'd use that as it is the closest I can get. What about an epenthetic high-vowel? That would also work, yielding either [ʃɪt] "ʃit" or [ʃiːt] "ʃiit", though I doubt a person would hear [st] and decide there is a vowel there. This right here is p...

Re: What I have been working on

OK, so I have modified the language a bit more tweaking it somewhat. Now, some of the one syllable words which are numbers, double as pronouns. Before the first number in a string, the Ŋ (ENG) number identifier is required and again after the number string. So if you hear or see the number string id...

Re: What I have been working on

Now, I've run in to a bit of a snag. I am having trouble finding a way to convert names into my language. Do I ask people to pronounce the names as they would in English or another language as loan words, or do I get a l large list of names, and just make up new words for each name? I m not sure how...

Re: What I have been working on

You are absolutely right, but just because some natlang uses them one way does not mean I can't totally change what they are Um, actually, it's not just "some" natlang; it's a number of languages representing hundreds of millions of speakers . The general recommendation is to avoid "totally changin...

Re: What I have been working on

The new endings whether they stay the same or get modified again, they will definitely be only one character and will be pronounced as I have previously stated. This is important so as to keep down the length of the words. Instead of a consonant and the u breve, we can just have a single consonant w...
