Re: Astronomy workshop

Thanks for the help, Sangi39 and Gach ! I guess I'll keep my year length and change the number of AU to 2.83. And Sangi, thanks for explaining how I was doing the math wrong! Now I'll know that one is supposed to plug in Earth-years, not Earth-days. I'll post the new planet data for Bodus when I've ...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

So amused to hear that the man behind the FUCT brand in the current Supreme Court FUCT controversy is named Erik Brunetti. On Shaleya, there's a type of rice-shaped brown algae called brunetti in LIE.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Modal means its phonation is default, as it is for voiced consonants. But you can have nasalized modal voiced vowels and consonants because nasalization is not a type of phonation. Creaky, slack-voiced, murmured, breathy, devoiced, voiceless, and modal are all phonation types. Not nasality. It's ju...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Yes, /ħ/ before creaky, /h/ before modal. What does "modal" mean, besides being the adjective for the moods of verbs? In regards to vowels, it's the "default" voicing. In this case, "not creaky". So modal means it's not nasal, not breathy, not creaky, not any of those things . . . right?

I'm not sure what help you want here - you have the same equations and equivalent calculator to any of us. Just enter in the numbers.

Re: Conlanger stereotype poll

Mind you, there is rather a depth to that question that really bears consideration. And possibly doesn't fit in this kind of poll at all.

You could put Asian, you know. Screw with the System! I've actually pondered doing that before, since geographers say the Middle East is part of Asia.

Re: Conlanger stereotype poll

Maybe it actually is "Other"? One thing I've learned is that Reyzadren rarely identifies with pigeonholes of any kind! I've definitely noticed this myself. I sometimes put "Other" on (non-medical) forms. Or just fill in some random circle. None of their effing business anyway. I usually have to put...

I hate to bother you again, but the list of ethnicities was only a list of examples and was not meant to be complete. If you identify as sometjing else, feel free to share exactly what it is!

What would the accent of a native speaker of your conlang sound like in English?

Re: Astronomy workshop

All right. My planet, Bodus, is 2.0251 AU from its Wanos sun. A year on Bodus lasts as long as 3.6504892 years on Earth (1,333.313801631 Earth days). What would the solar mass of Wanos be?
