Re: Conlang Conversation Thread

Who claimed that? No one in this thread. ya tsaya Oh damn... I just realized while reading back through that I posted this at the same time I was debating someone on twitter about apps being good tools for language learning. Sorry. You're totally right, I responded to something that wasn't said.

This is a big question, but the answer is not as illusive as you might think. Excel (or Google Docs), or any of these, really . Word, or other word processing programs. Excel like programs are good for vocabulary and even diachronics, but word-like programs are best for grammar, phonologies, and tra...

If you're wondering why I see a Hebrew influence, the second block in the left column of the hand written looks like a Hebrew word <ZH> /zɛ/ "This" with a hastily written (or the handwritten style of Jews living in the Early Islamic World) glyph for <z>/
I can see that.

Re: Various Styles

I like the handwritten and kufic, but the former looks like the bastard lovechild of hanguel and simplified hanzi with Hebrew ad the godfather. The kufic is more unique. I've always liked your epigraphic style best of all. The handwritten style is extremely attractive as well! I prefer the handwrit...

Re: Should Romanisations be "Necessary"?

Regardless of the transcription scheme chosen, it will also need to include IPA (or X-SAMPA), which effectively means it's virtually romanized. As already mentioned, any attempt to avoid transcription will likely be met with a lack of interest and quite possibly derision.
