Re: Introduction thread(s)

Hi guys, I'm ilaeriu. I'm not really new to CBB -- in fact I've technically been on CBB since just before CBB moved to be hosted on this particular site six (!!) years ago. But I sadly gradually stopped posting and conworlding about five-ish years ago, until today I had a sudden longing for my old c...

Re: 한국의 인공언어

안녕하세요? 님은 우리 게시판으로 오셔서, 환영할 말씀을 드리고싶습니다. 제가 요즘은 댓글 많이 남기는것 아닌데, 앞으로 더 열심히 하면 바래요.

한국인 아닌데 국어를 배우는 외국인입니다. 반갑습니다!

conlang하시는 한국분을 만나본척 아직 없네요. 저밖에 한국어 사용하는 사람 거의 없는데 한글 아시는분 아주 많아요. 한글은 자질문자(맞은 단어일까요?)이니까 conlanger들끼리 인기 많잖아요.

그네이버카페는 좀 재미있는거 같애요! 가입해보겠습니다~

Re: Conversation Thread of the 3rd SPAM!

Hi people, remember me? heheh I posted quite a bit like months (years?) ago, but dropped for whatever reason. I'm back and procrastinating from school, so it's good to be back and see familiar faces (along with a lot of fresh ones, hi!).

Re: hases san|anai (Gotta catch them all!)

By the way, does anyone see any major problems with having 'them all' as being homophonous with 'everything/everybody'? If your language doesn't distinguish them grammatically, then there shouldn't be a problem. Filipino Tagalog doesn't really have separate words for those concepts, we use <silang ...

Re: Poll: Best/Worst Natlang Orthography

I think the Welsh orthography is one of my favourites. I love how they use <w>. http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lt8b4r1oLK1qckgmgo1_500.gif But Korean Hangul wins by far - how I just love it!

Rosetta Stone Software: Yes or No?

So I just torrented Levels 1-3 of Rosetta Stone for Mandarin, and I have to admit that it's not bad at all. (Please don't comment on the fact that I torrented it - please take the piracy wars to another thread, thanks :D) I'm learning vocab pretty quickly, quicker than if I just studied lines of tex...

Re: Race and American Culture.

@cybrkhan: I agree! I remember when we first moved to the Caribbean my grandma said "What? Aren't they all goons there?" That being said they're pretty open-minded as well.

A refection of the previous (Ilaeriu's comments especially) is in the following questions: - How comfortable are you inviting kids of other ethnicities to your house? - How comfortable are your parents?

Re: The worst sounding natlang ever

Someone at wikipedia has humour. It must be said: the worst sounding natlang has to be the Anal language, which, as Wikipedia helpfully tells us, is not to be confused with the Anus language.

Re: Least favorite historical period.

Not that I hate it, but I seem to find the general American revolution era up until after the World Wars era to be less interesting than the rest.
