Re: Other Creativity

Thanks! At the moment, no, it's for Windows, Mac and Linux. We also have plans for mobile, but we just don't have the time/money for that as of yet.

Re: Other Creativity

Games count as creativity, right? I'm making a turn-based strategy game about global warming. We haven't done a lot of worldbuilding yet, so unfortunately I haven't been able to flex my conworlding muscles in that respect. The vibe is a bit alt-history "what if World War 1 lasted through to today", ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Despite promising myself I would work on Maran by hand, I dove back into my Haskell+Latex project, adapted it for Maran and wrote some new code to generate nice little standalone conjugation tables.

Re: What have you been reading lately?

I'm halfway through Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, my mother's favorite author. Maybe it's heightened because I miss her, but I'm surprised by how much I genuinely like it, and by how funny it is. The language used is a treasure as well. Of course there are a bunch of nice formalisms like "he i...

Re: Maran, a small greeklang with portuguese and english influences

1 - I saw how your copulæ have /μ/ for both 1Pl and 3PL, which looks and feels like a def :por: influence . Is there a reason why the 'regular' verb conjugation has /ν/ for the 3PL, and not a /μ/ as well? Because I came up with the copulae after I wrote down the regular verbs. [xP] I guess 3PL is a...

Re: Maran, a small greeklang with portuguese and english influences

If I might ask, what variety of Greek is Maran descended from? What is the etymology of its name? [...] If possible, could we see the sound changes leading to Maran? What happened to the letters <γ θ υ>? Are they not even used in etymological spellings? Maran is an a priori language inspired by anc...

Re: Maran, a small greeklang with portuguese and english influences

Are the nouns always regular?
I don't know yet. [:P]
Because the declension tables for nouns are so small (only four forms), I imagine they will all turn out regular in the sense that they can be grouped based on gender and sg. nom. ending. But I might add an ablaut somewhere.

Maran, a small greeklang with portuguese and english influences

Maran is a small a priori greeklang I've been scribbling down over the past couple of weekends. It is a bit of a reboot of Kerdos, where I focussed mostly on programmatically generating diachronics and dictionaries; although I liked the programming exercise and the neat pdfs it generated, it left th...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Thanks! The two sound changes I kept from my experiment with a portuguese-inspired greeklang are /m/,/l/,/r/ > [w] in coda positions and /tə/ > [tʃ] everywhere, so I'm happy they show off well in 1PL and 2PL.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Lately I've been working on a smaller greeklang using just pen and paper. Today I have worked out some regular verb conjugations: Conjugations of τελω ( to carry, to bring ) and other regular verbs whose root end in -λ , -ρ or -ν : Present tense: τελω ['tɛlu] τελεις ['tɛlɛɪs] τελει ['tɛlɛɪ] τελομ ['...

Ooh neat! Yeah I also thought Parseltongue was made up on the spot, given that he only says one phrase per movie over and over IIRC.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been watching a Brazilian Portuguese series on Netflix, so today I was inspired to make a greeklang that sounded somewhat like Portuguese, but I didn't really get further than deciding that /ti/ would become [tʃi] before consonants and [tʃ] elsewhere, e.g. κοντινεντι [kɔntʃinɛntʃ]. I liked the ...
