Re: Con-scripts (survey and random ideas)

Evelēranēl has an alphabet of its own. HyPry has a long history of writing systems, three of which are in use: two alphabets and the circular Orbital logographic system... and an ancient alpha-syllabary that they don't use much. The Orbital form is still in its raw, underdeveloped stage. Here's an e...

Re: Conlangs you've forgotten?

I never scrap conlangs. I still have Tptpd sitting in a folder on my hard drive, even though I never went anywhere with it. Saving it for a rainy day, I suppose. Then there are my half dozen or so not-quite-English-ciphers that also never went anywhere. I have two conlangs that I really work with: E...

Re: Lexicon milestones

Evelēranēl, my first real conlang and, despite its n00blang tendencies, a personal favorite, has upwards of 1500 words - my lexicon also counts idioms and loanwords, so the number isn't definite. It's 1000th word was ēšoka , 'the act of being sorry'. Genljøŋ, my agglutinative pet project that was sp...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Added stop/fricative voicing agreement rules to HyPry. No more tz, ʒt, ds, bφ, vb, ʃz, etcetera consonant clusters that I cannot get my tongue around properly!

Re: Concostumes

The only conculture of mine that has been deeply thought-out is that of the kamawenõ, the native speakers of Evelēranēl. They are an extra-terrestrial race, with an avian physiology instead of a mammalian one. After countless generations of genetic experimentation (they're more than a little obsesse...

Re: I don't understand what you're saying. Speak English!

Alright, thank you! I will work on glossing, and see if I can condense my gloss into something less... extensive... in the future.

Re: I shot you, I shot at you.

:con: HyPry (C Cou Proıdounıœmæ Lègælıefra) can deal with this in a few ways. One could use either the (1) allative or (2) dative case on the thing being shot ( the former carries the implication that the shot did not hit its mark - more like "I shot in your general direction" ), or use a particular...

Re: Are your main conpeople human or of a different species?

My primary, and only well-thought-out, conpeople are the somewhat humanoid, avian inhabitants of a number of massive starships. Since their planet was destroyed a few thousand generations back, they've taken migration to a whole new level. They are the ones who speak my first true conlang, Evelēranē...

Re: Constuff Quirk Thread

Evelēranēl has two sets of verb tenses depending on whether you are referring to your personal timeline or the universal one. It's all set for time-travel situations. Genløŋ uses nouns as verbs, and conjugates them through vowel shifts. Thus you have, from ris , death: Rïs - I am Death. Rïsï - I am ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Greetings. Newbie to this forum here - just popped over from the Unilang conlanging forum after finding a link here. I've been conlanging for... well, a long time now. Most of my experimental languages I've scrapped, but I've lately been working rather diligently on a handful of them. So today I exp...
