Re: The Landau Core Vocabulary

P.S. you can send attachments through PM? Didn't know of that. Actually, you can't send attachments through PM. The PM option would've entailed me sending you long lists of words in the text body of my messages. (The LCV is so long that it takes a few PM's to send it all.) Anyway, today I added som...

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

Even Indo-European languages often have "evidential" markers that aren't buolt into the verb. English, for instance, has "I hear" or "I heard" for hearsay, and "they say" for conventional wisdom.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

All right, so yesterday I got this awesome idea for a futuristic technology that we could have by PS 13,000. You know virtual reality? Well, this is called cerebral reality. You go to a CR center and you see a tiger, or a dragon, or an abomhiz, or a spear, or a sword, or a tank, or a palm tree, or a...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Yesterday I coined over a hundred new Kankonian words. Things we can now say in Kankonian include: ask-hupiyi : siphonophore ( ask , colony + hupiyi , hydra) halmazin : to fight to the death ( hal- , prefix for all + mazin , to fight) ezgrin halmazini : holy war (Internet/PAIMO fight over a religiou...

Re: Ogden's "Basic English" for other languages?

Dva_arla, would the list in the Snowball Game be the perfect compromise for you? Not counting the names, there are 625 word-entries. It has some animals, clothing words, technology, and other non-universals, but nothing too Latinate for a child-level vocabulary.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Khemehekis: I've updated the classifiers. If they interest you as possible roots stemming from Txabao. I've indicted the current semantic scope of the words. Just to be clear I imagine the classifiers would have stemed from lexical items, probably nouns. Awesome! ʔokabe(F) -> ʔokaβe ->ʔõkawe -> õko...

It fills me with joy to be doing this kind of collaboration actually and that we can feed each other ideas like this. The meanings you give things suggest all sorts of new compound forms.

The whole thing is ridiculous, but they can't even figure out how to get rid of spambots that are on the site without killing half the (sfw/rule abiding) art and writing blogs with them.

ISFP's and INFP's suffer.

Hopefully this ENFP won't go down that route.

From greg to ja̤ ! A truly spectacular change! In The Power of Babel , John McWhorter mentions an Amerindian language in which the word for "water" reduced from something polysyllabic in its ancestor to something like aa or o . It's fascinating to see how the Txabao words would look millennia later....

It might actually just be a new blog thing, for whatever reason. A {{new blog} thing}, or a {new {blog thing}}?
