Re: What do I need to know?

it depends on your expectations ... For me, it's more a search than a goal in itself ... I respond to a personal emergency that pushes me ... Like poetry, everything you know is useful, and there is no need for rules, except to surpass them ... Follow rather what you have in you than what dictates t...

Re: Introduction to Sikwenchu

Leave this thread here. The next time some auxlanger with dreams bigger than an empire and no knowledge of language comes swanning in, we just link them to this. I'm not sure the language connoisseurs, that dream of imaginary empire, and limit their real invented language to imaginary use, are fair...

Re: Introduction to Sikwenchu

postulate 1 can be more precise: any goal for conlanging looks usually ridiculous to those who don't follow the same goal... in this sense, auxlangers find artlangers goal irrelevant, artlangers find auxlangers goal irrelevant, and nolangers find any conlangers goal irrelevant... postulate 2 can be ...

Re: Introduction to Sikwenchu

I hoping that the appeal to non-native speakers is simply that the language can be learned quickly. Imagine if someone from China, Japan, Vietnam, India, etc., all just studied for two months and could then have practical conversations with each other after only two month. Though that's not a cultu...

Re: Introduction to Sikwenchu

Just a note on the legal aspect of your would be auxlang: I think you might want to get in contact with Sai . He is probably the single most knowledgeable person in the entire universe when it comes to all the legal aspects of language invention. It's cute (for about one second) that you write a "T...

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

Do you ever avoid using IPA when you're talking to "normies" (non-linguistic folks)? Like I was posting about the unusual pronunciation of someone's username on another site so I just wrote it out in "stupid phonetics", something like writing the pronunciation of "education" as "ed-jew-KAY-shun". I...

Re: Advice for Omyatloko

What i've understood: logograms are made by deformations of syllabic signs, and each compound of logograms makes meaning of a new word whose sound is a compound by reduction of the names of the compounded logograms... In fact pronunciation is the basis of the writing, even logographic, by progressiv...

I had seen it, but I can not see the articulation between the 500 purely logographic words and the rest of the lexicon ...
Is there any superposition, duplicates, or something ... (ditto for the featural stuff)
