Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I tried to revise the climate map using GIMP so that the climate zones would be present as a layer that can be removed, but unfortunately failed. If anybody wanted to assist and amend the climate map incorporating all the updates, it would be great, but I can also try again at some other point other...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I'm currently researching on split-ergative alignments for my project and I've come up with a new idea, not sure if naturalistic enough though. It would show animacy-based split-ergativity on nouns but pure ergativity on verbs (the language has polypersonal agreement). Noun animacy-based split-erga...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

In another option, I also wouldn't mind "playing" the inventor of the wheel and to originally hail from E4. Khemehekis' desert peoples, being located in the deserts to the west of the highlands/mountains, could then come into contact with the invention as intrepid explorers to my area, use it for t...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Thanks againfor your assistance, Zekoslav, I will amend the map. Would you by any chance also be interested in joining with a conlang of your own? There is still a good amount of empty space all over the map! The possibility of extensively borrowing vocab from other conlangs would mean that you woul...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

K1-0y: I agree with Nachtuil, that's a great article! It would probably make sense that the wheel would have been invented in the north east, or so I imagine just due to it having a large area of grassland and steppes but that certainly need not be the case of course. How about: A savannah people i...

Re: BLSL thread

Converbs In BLSL, converb suffixes were added to a verb infinitive to express coordinating and subordinating senses. All the converbs have different forms depending on whether the subject argument for the converb is identical to that of the finite verb (same subject, SS) or not (different subject, ...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I am glad about everybody else's input and continue to conlang and conworld for the collab myself, just too busy to make posts presenting the things right now, but I will soon again! [:)]

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

It might not be the right corner to ask, but I think the right people are likely to read it here, so I want to just go ahead and ask - has anybody here tried their hand at Hungarian and does have any good resources? I'd like a book, and possibly some good online resources just to add in the mix and ...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

A question: How far back do our languages go? I'd like to help with conlangs for this project, but I want to know if the proto-languages all have to date from the beginning of history. And are we going to wait to start our conlangs until we've gotten the history fleshed out well? It would be amazin...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Also, would this map (this one leaves out the mammoth steppe bordering on the tundra in the eastern half), correctly assume where you want your concultures to be placed? https://i.ibb.co/Z8Lbh1Q/map-climate-overhaul.png Nachtuil's Kodikeng were fairly easy to place on the Oratsem pensinsula, while k...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I think I would leave that to people who know more about the formation of continents / mountain ranges than me, in particular the creator of the original map, k1234567890y. However, I've already amended a map version where I tried to implement your suggestions, including the mammoth steppe, which pr...

Thank you for such a detailed response, I will implement the advice and then post the overhauled map, and ask what everybody is thinking [:)]

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Thanks for your reply Zekoslav! That cold desert makes a lot of sense to me, I will make the part of the E2 quadrant to the east of the mountain range a (cold) desert, or do you reckon it would extend further east? To the east, I would then probably have some cold steppe for quite a bit. I'd origina...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

I've now just to see for myself as a trial run filled in where I think the major zones would go based on Mark Rosenfelder's "Planet Construction Kit", with an admittedly less than ideal colouring scheme, which was one of the first few google hits I got, apparently the one used by the US Naval Academ...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

A question about the map: I assume the darker shaded area are not only mountains, but also highlands? I'm trying my hand at a bit of climate, just shading the white, low areas according to climate zone. However, I doubt that the result will be very usable, as it's my first time doing something like ...

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Yeah, no rush, Nachtuil! There will still be plenty to do when you will have more time on your hands again [:)]

Thread opener MirandaBrawner hasn't been on here for a few weeks now? I hope there's no serious reason behind it, but also just plain lack of time or something like that!

Re: BLSL thread

Verbs of motion and locative verbs Verbs of motion encoding direction are formed by using the dynamic verbal ending “ma”, suffixed onto locative case postpositions (as well as combinations thereof); similarly, so-called “locative verbs” are formed by suffixing the stative endings “hɛ” and “he”, res...

Re: BLSL thread

I'm in the mood for some mood! Imperative-jussive mood The sole true morphological mood divorced from the tense-aspect suffixes is the imperative-jussive mood, which is formed by suffixing the personal pronoun to the verb, deleting “ma”; only “-ma”-verbs can be used in this mood. Cause I haven't tou...

I personally would assume it i.e. it is an alternative Earth.

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Are we actually assuming earth size for the planet?

I am liking duck-billed dinosaurs more and more, though they would need, I guess, a very warm habitat. Possibly equitarial rainforests would do?
