Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

That looks about right yeah, nice work. I'll have to make a map at some point showing their migration through time. I imagine them to be traceable to some position in the E column.

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Sounds good Ky!

Warm and moist environments sounds right to me for duck billed dinosaurs haha.

My apologies for not being more active in this project. It isn't from a lack of interest but a lack of time.

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I like that idea too. The more I think about it elk for riding sounds like a more and more cool idea.(Visions of Yakul from Monoke Hime- who yes, doesn't actually look like an elk) Maybe that is something that occurred in the colder more northern climates and the duckbill dinosaur thing in the south...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

That's an interesting question to consider. We could of course have both as on Earth but something like a horse I think would a huge impact on human locomotion culture and warfare until the modern era. If humans didn't have horses, do you think we would have bred another animal to fill the role? May...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

I probably should set this form of the language in the modern era at "present" or between AG 0 and AG 250. I'll have to produce earlier versions of the language backwards alas. I mentioned sister languages still existing in the north east somewhere too. I definitely want to create a few dialectal ve...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

I have not figured out how I"m going to handle my verbs quite yet (mostly been extremely busy). I've decided to punt that decision down the road and make some common phrases/expressions. If I keep this, I'm already kind of locking myself in a bit as I have been thinking to mark number on the verb af...

Re: Grammatical Sketch for Classical Sitr

I'm glad I could finally get around to reading this. I like what you've done so far.
If classical Sitr is old enough maybe we could use its scripts as a basis for later scripts?

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Just to be clear, whenever I referred to a 10k date, I meant 10,000BC i.e. 12,000 years ago ;) Now that you mention goat: does "earthlike" entail that flora and fauna stay (largely) the same? Oh ok :P I guess that's when the 0 AG or whatever can be? hahah. I think you and I may be the only ones who...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I can do something with climate if some point unless someone wants to take it on. I was thinking of having a rain shield effect along the central north south ridge so that the west side of the central continent with the bay is wetter and the east side is drier. I've updated the map too. I actually k...

Re: Assistance sought with very far future setting

I don't want to put words in the mouth of Salmoneus, who made an excellent post, but I think the point is that 20 k years is such a long span of time for language development that even with writing systems to preserve history, you could easily just create something from scratch whole sale. You could...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I'd advocate for either 12,000 or 10,000! Shall we vote? [:D] "Baseline secondlang" [xD] Because its my second conlang, and was intended to just be the baseline for later daughter families, which fits in quite well with a collabworld! ___ I think the next thing to look at on a plantery scale would ...

Great work on the map! :D Thank you so much for putting that peninsula in! Would it be possible to add a handful of small island specks to the south west of it? :) That dating system works for me.

Re: Random Conworld idea thread

A thing I thought of today: A society that believes in “lineal reincarnation”; the notion that after you die you are reincarnated as the next one of your descendants to be born. Or in particular the idea that (if you are a man) you are reborn as the next one of your male-line descendants to be born...

I was going to have mixed but I'll consider making it more heavily post position. That's a good idea about the DOM. Any suggestions? definite direct objects receive a distinct marking, probably an adposition, but indefinite objects don't receive a marking different from nominatives Hmm okay! I like...

Re: where to study linguistics/conlang in U.S.?

As a Canadian I can say the University of Toronto downtown campus is good. They offer a lot of different language courses and I know one of the professors, Nathan Sanders, is very involved in using conlangs as a teaching tool. I've heard good things about the York University program but don't know m...
