It seems, if I believe the different threads on the self-description of the members of the forums of conlanging, that the turn of the spirit necessary to the development of the innate faculty of conlang...

Re: RE: Making a Computer that runs on Magic

I thought that all computers work on magic... few people know how they works ( the sorcerers) how to build one (the magicians)... all users believe in their magic and only know the tricks they are autorized to used on the computers they bought already witched... they only could change of gurus and s...

Re: what brought you to conlanging?

conlanging is not the activity of learning conlangs but building conlangs... conlangs have no real ambition to be used as a languages that build a community, but as an autonomous activity or an autistic hobby that no one can really understand... except comparing with the hobby of an other conlanger....

Re: Benjamin and Southpaws

the use of languages erases the details considered superfluous, and leads to the etymological strangeness that we know ... In alkhasatbiallughatalaradi, conversely I use "left" for "south", but specifying "facing west", in order to preserve the transparent character of the construction, and its univ...

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

[what the first example probably shows is how much 'sounds like' can just encode native vocabulary. It's surely no coincidence that your word for 'man' is just the Latin word with a reduplicated vowel to prevent the final consonant...] That is the goal of poetry to find what meanings sound like... ...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

That would be how it would be written if it weren't an example of the paired glyphs. I've crafted vowel markers as well which necessitates a bit of room above and below the lines Another advantage for the regularity of tessellations is the possibility of escaping from the traditional direction "rig...

Re: Should Romanisations be "Necessary"?

I use a so-called philosophical language,where the use of constructed writing (logographic) precedes the phonology... It is much more logical to handle, and reduces the risk of error of meaning related to a misspelling ... In use, I created an IME to enter the keyboard, in my word processor, what I ...
