Re: Let's Talk about Syntax (NP: Topic Ideas etc)

Honestly I'd like it if you went through the list you made on the first post. I know very few of those terms, and I'm relishing filling in my knowledge.

Re: Notion of "love" in your conlangs?

Atm, I have "elska" as a placeholder as the verb "To love romantically", but honestly I'm probably going to make it an intransitive verb. All other emotion verbs work that way.

Re: "Us" as nominative in English nominalized clauses

I think "us" in this context is being used as an object of the main verb - the continuous participle is the only reason you infer nominative.

A Language Experiment

I'm thinking of conducting an experiement much like this , however, I'd like to go further than encoding the appearance of fruits. I want to see what will happen with simple intransitive/monotransitive type stuff. eg. A picture showing a transitive action. Problems are though, how could I easily con...

Re: Spirantization of plosives and fricative clusters

Honestly, before reading them, I personally predicted /sʷ/ or /sw/. /sʷ/ is more interesting to me.

The North Wind and Sun - Finnish

Could anybody direct me to, or write me, a translation of "The North Wind and the Sun" fable into Finnish? I'm doing a personal research into the phoneme patterns of various languages, and I thought this fable'd be a good place to begin. Also, if anyone's got a Quenya version, that'd be fantastic, b...

Re: Anaha Language

I'm sorry, friend, but a nounless (practical) language is not truly possible. You're just DERIVING nouns from verbs only. The closest thing to nounlessness is banning any free morphemic nouns. It still remains though, that they are nouns.

Re: A certain discrepancy

A very simple thing to answer. The orthography (writing system) was created far enough back that the language has changed since, but not enough for it to be worthwhile forcing every speaker of said language to change a very fundamental habit.

Re: Auxlangs - for and against

A (completely fair on everyone) global auxlang is, as we all know, impossible. A European one would work for Europe - a Slavic one for...Slavia...(lolwut). The issue of change would not be an issue - it would be multi-national, and the standard version would be the only one taught. I suppose, though...
