Feel free to a...

Re: Speedlang IX (Jan 17-19)

Fairly incomplete, but I do like at least some of what I did, so will keep working on this language - so there may still be revisions!

Re: Speedlang IX (Jan 17-19)

Cool, I like those constraints. I did receive some work that kept me busy most of yesterday, but started a sketch. What is it we actually send in -a grammar?

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I've been adding some grammar to our Damta-Wiki, though I'm not too happy with the limited formatting options on there, making, for example, my tables look quite unappealing and rendering some sub-headings way smaller than the actual paragraph text, which doesn't make for a very clear structure [¬.¬...

Grr, another dumb joke in a TV show suggesting that a name ending in "-ovich" had to be Romanian because "Romanian is a Slavic language" according to dumb pop culture. [>_<]

Weirdly, the people from Romania I know all speak Hungarian [:D]

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I've not given up on Damta, just not been conlanging too much recently, and usually not been in the mood to make entries on the wiki either when I was in the mood. Let's keep it going!
