Re: West Saxon Grammar Sketch v 0.0.1

I love that you transformed the first person dual into an optional inclusive plural. Very cool! I also really like the truncated non-tonic form of the first person singular pronoun before all those consonants. It’s a great bit of allomorphy. I'm glad you liked it, spanick. The clusivity bit is prob...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Nope, but interesting thinking. Also, þued has a different sense than what you might be thinking; volk is the word you would use if you meant "people" in the sense of a national or ethnic identity.

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

EDIT: If you mean þeode as in "language", then no. Sorry for the earlier answer of yes, I thought you'd just made a typo of þeod.

Yep, though you could get a bit more granular, morpheme-wise.

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Ok. Hopefully this one will prove less troublesome than my last word (though I fear it may be a bit too simple). Language : West Saxon Word : zwinkreþued Pronunciation : /ˈzɔjŋ.gɹ̩.ˌðœɥd/ I will note that, while this is a real word in West Saxon, it has kind of fallen out of fashion, replaced by a l...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Is it "poisonous mushroom", from *aitrą (poison), *ūkwǭ (toad), and *stōlaz (stool)?

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Do any of you watch NativLang? Just saw his latest video about Altaic. Very interesting. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0zkHH6ZOEk I agree, he does a really good job giving the rundown on the procession of the theory from the start to its debunking. It's always nice to see a new NativLang vide...

Re: Metal Thread

Glad you liked it. Their Bandcamp page actually has English (and French) translations of their lyrics for their second album, if you're curious. Quin Braguèr's video actually is, all things considered not that far off the lyrics, though they are a fair bit more risqué (it's about a priest who has a ...

Re: Metal Thread

I see Alestorm listed, but not Gloryhammer (one of Christopher Bowes' side projects). If you appreciate the tongue-in-cheek humor of Alestorm's take on folk metal, I imagine you'd get a kick out of a similar take on lore-ful (their three albums form an ongoing story) power metal. Some personal favor...

Re: Random Conlang Concepts

While West Saxon is the main language of mine I've been neglecting, this thread got me thinking about the several other crackpot notions language ideas that I've also been doing precisely nothing with. 1) Romlang set on the Azores, descended from Old Latin (circa 200 BC) with significant Punic influ...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

The morpheme breakdown I guessed was self+word+less+ness. Were most of those guesses accurate?
