An LCV yay-or-nay question rather than a conlang yay-or-nay, but oh well . . .

Should I add the noun "spell", as in a magical spell, to the Landau Core Vocabulary? I imagine it would go under the Life, Philosophy, Religion category.
Yay!

Re: If natlangs were conlangs

Why do people always say bad things about natlangs in this thread? I just want to say that I would really enjoy the crazyness of the languages of Vanuatu if they were conlangs. They are so nicely crafted. Look at Creyeditor’s post from a quasi-“meta” PoV, and supposing any naivete (if that’s the ri...

Re: Comfortable

Also, I have heard Americans pronouncing "interesting" with 1 stressed + 3 unstressed syllables, and it sounds totally natural to me. Hmm! as near as I can tell and as far as I know, all the four-syllable pronunciations of “interesting” I can remember hearing from Americans, put a secondary stress ...

Re: Comfortable

I no longer think any of the pronunciations are incorrect. I haven’t thought so since 2000 at the latest, and probably much longer. However as a pre-college (possibly pre-secondary) youth, I did try to conform my pronunciation to the spelling; and maybe I thought I was more correct when I did so. Ou...

Re: Comfortable

I trained myself to pronounce "February" as /ˈfɛb.ɹuˌɛɹi/ as opposed to /ˈfɛb.juˌɛɹi/, which I said as a kid. The "correct" pronunciation is automatic for me now and /ˈfɛb.juˌɛɹi/ sounds juvenile and incorrect to my ears. My pronunciation of "comfortable" remains /ˈkʌmft.ɚb.əl/, however [:D] “FEB y...

Comfortable

When I was young I pronounced it as if it were spelled “kumfterbul”. Three syllables, the first one accented, and the /r/ after the /t/ and before the /b/, and no vowel between the /f/ and the /t/. As far as I could tell nearly everyone I knew nearly always pronounced it that way. I didn’t start pro...

It is good to know that I'll be missed.
Sometimes, when someone says they’ll miss me, I think of asking them to consider not shooting at me in the first place.

Re: Any interest in starting a collaborative project?

Due to many intriguing features——too many to quote!——I intend to lurk about this project.
I fear I don’t reliably have the creativity on tap to contribute.
But I like it so far!

Then there's Sir Terry Pratchett's type, INTP. When I think of INTP's, I picture an overweight, ponytailed geek sitting at his laptop and visiting sites where he discusses quantum physics and new sustainability paradigms, tweaking his Unified Theory of Everything. I have never had a ponytail! But y...

Kinda realistic-ish or realism-simulating. Verisimilitude, in other words. —— Creative, too!

I definitely like it so far. It at least seems realistic and naturalistic, to me. I think I’d be willing to bet it’s sort of close to something ANADEWish, though I don’t know what.
