Re: What did you accomplish today?

Yesterday I did D-words in Kankonian. That brought me 142 new words. Here are some of them: duvass : daemon, daimon (guiding deity) trikmel : datapad (presumably a borrowing from some people who became technologically advanced before the Kankonians did) kmogispa : dauber, mud wasp phundi : deacon (b...

Re: Forth

So Khemehekis claims I'm a "prolific engelanger", and while I'm not quite so convinced I'm "prolific", engelangs are absolutely my thing, so I thought I'd try and deliver on that. After toying with some more "usual" ideas to get back into conlanging, I want to see how far this concept goes. Since b...

Re: Conlang YouTube, Metal Music, Emotions, Etc. [Split]

However, people may often claim to not be in control of themselves, because they're bluffing. If someone says to you, "if you come near me I'll kill you, I can't help myself", what they're really saying is "I am so irrational that if if you do something I don't like, I'll become violent even if it'...

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

Deformed Elephant Surgery's "Human Being" was just a bunch of machine-processed, indecipherable grinding . . . er, noise. Honest question, please don't be offended: do you think all music has to be emotional? If you do, fair enough, but I don't. That song (and the entire album) was literally meant ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Thanks! [:D] You're welcome! I think it's entirely possible some of my old conlangs could be salvaged. One I stumbled into was the tree-based one which I thought was pretty cool. I may return to them at some point, though for now I'm starting something new as a way to get back into conlanging. Here...

Makes sense, I just assumed there couldn't be anyone who's on the internet who hasn't heard of them since they were mentioned literally everywhere when they released their first album. Just to broaden your horizons a little bit: I've heard the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, and I've heard OF Taylor Swif...

Listen to this... and (at least a few minutes of) this.. and then this...

Today, I re-emerged from the void. Aszev very kindly recovered this account for me as it had all but been lost to time.

Re: Lexicon milestones

On August 1, 2019, Kankonian reached 60,000 words. Today, February 16, 2020, Kankonian reached 62,500 words. Word #62,500, interestingly, was the first word I coined today in a two-day spree of going over C-words in English. The word was hotzakis , meaning "coachman". It comes from hotzak (coach) pl...

Re: Kurt Cobain Day

By chance, I found Kurt Cobain mentioned in the comments. As I don't have that much experience with his songs (I probably only would be able to recognize Teen spirit.) and as I feared that clicking into the comments would interrupt the music, I didn't check the further content. I put it into the Me...

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

I couldn't make out any of the lyrics. Given titles like "Pink Unicorn Chaos Rainbow" and "Lepidopterous Inundation", I'm guessing the aesthetic you're going for is supposed to be rainbows-and-unicorns, much like the Babymetal sound? Oh, right, I forgot I didn't include lyrics in the description......

On Saturday, I did some B-words for Kankonian, and created 185 new words in the process. Some new words include: ikhun : baal, false god tzepbamaland : babymoon (portmanteau from tzepba , placenta and bamaland , honeymoon) avandavah : backbeat (onomatopoeia) zakasdzhuegfash : back board, spine board...

I listened to " Human Being ". Oh God no, hahaha, that's an ancient shitty song from 2010 and the only reason it's even on Youtube is that I already uploaded it back then, but for some reason Youtube had some weird glitch and it and another song from the same album somehow got "uploaded" in 2017 or...

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

I think cultural considerations can provide you with multiple words for what in English would just be one word. e.g. Japanese has dozens of words for swords English has dozens of words for swords! Sword, broadsword, longsword, shortsword, backsword, smallsword, sabre, scimitar, tulwar, katana, waki...
