Everyone has emotions, so everyone can project their own emotions onto every song they hear (or sing) even if they've never experienced those emotions.
This is wrong. And our world is the way it is because most normal people don't want to accept that NOT EVERYONE has emotions.

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

As I noted earlier, I would say - or at least write - " a round", not "round". Maybe this is the tone you're going for, but to me, "round" looks very informal, like the writer is trying to represent a spoken shortening of " a round". Although maybe this is just another dialectal issue, and for some...

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

I don't think that's an accurate summation. If someone said "He showed her around in the ship" it would sound like a trafficking scheme of some sorts. That's how a non-native could interpret that sentences. Typically just "he showed her around the ship" means that she is being given a tour of the s...

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

I agree. Although "shows her around in the ship" is also possible. But would probably mean something like "he showed her around [his collection of belleek] in the ship", rather than showing her the parts of the ship itself. I can also maybe imagine something like someone complaining "I spend all da...

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

Leo gives "to show so. round" for German "jmdn. herumführen". Is it ok to write "He shows her round in the ship" or is it "He shows her round the ship"? I'd say " a round" and without "in", so "He shows her around the ship". I agree. Although "shows her around in the ship" is also possible. But wou...

Re: Other Creativity

I've started to translate my story "Hexe Thekla und der Glücksdrache" (Witch Thekla and the dragon of fortune). This is actually a children's stroy, which is part of another book I write about LaTeX for authors. It's used there as an example story. I've not yet translated the titles. Even though I k...

Re: First Language [snake/reptile based]

Welcome here on the CBB! I'm working on a comic where the antagonists are lizard folk. Lizard folk can mean a lot, see e. g. Reptiloide in Perry Rhodan series . Check out the "Bekannte reptiloide Völker" (Known reptiloide people) part for how they look. Instead of just doing random squiggles for the...

Re: What's next?

I'm new to conlanging. I recently learned what is all about and I'm thrilled about making my first conlang. I already selected a phonology for my conlang, created a handful of root words and a fixed syllable structure. However, not having knowledge about linguistics, I have no idea about what is ne...

Re: RE: Making a Computer that runs on Magic

Second: Computers don't have to be linear What does that mean? You probably mean that computers does not have to be digital. Yes, there are the so-called analog computers. They usually compute a single function. These function does not need to be linear, of course, it might e. g. an exponential fun...

Well, demons don't work for nothing ... you have to pay them! Not if you have a sharp stick Then, there is no story. Can you explain to me what you mean by "occult", as I didn't get the pun.

Re: RE: Making a Computer that runs on Magic

Computers don't have to be mechanical Indeed, modern computers rely on electricity. Fantasy is full of magical computers.

Re: RE: Making a Computer that runs on Magic

The first application comes to mind is: 4. A magical basic unit of information which is more than the binary 0 or 1. There are in fact such systems. The speakers of Aymara are known to use such a system, which is a cause of severe misunderstandings between Aymara people and native speakers of other...

Okay, so I've managed to check out the vocabulary list that Tanni has compiled (thanks for guiding me through LaTex, and sorry for the burden I put you through). While the list would be an invaluable help to conlangers, it (and the LCV as well as the 2000-word LUV list) would not do much good in be...

Thanks! But I don't know how to open LaTex codes [:(] The LaTeX code is a source text. You need to download and install a LaTeX distribution such as MiKTeX . Send me a personel message.
