Re: Formatting

Maybe I've been hanging out with a different crowd all these years, but I've never seen an English -> artlang dictionary except for like a couple. All of Zompist's dictionaries are artlang -> English except for the (out-of-date) English -> Verdurian one, and the same goes for all the ones on Antholo...

Re: Translation app for my conlang work

Ah I usually arrange alphabet and words in different ways but I still want it to at least have some meaning and can be predicted from English... So a translation app would be helpful for me.

Actually, as far as I can see, you're the only person who hasn't followed the rules. Simply not true. [:)] Vlürch is the only one that has been following them!

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

You phrase that like a question, but yes, the whole phrase moving is a thing. I think k1234567890y has made a very good question here (which I had never thought about). It is a thing in languages like French ( A quoi est-ce que tu t'intéresses ? 'What are you interested in?'), but is it a thing in ...

Re: 學中文/学中文 - Learn Chinese

Velars /k kʰ x/ <g k h> I think it'd be good to point out that /x/ is actually pronounced as a voiceless uvular fricative or trill, [χ ~ ʀ̥], in Beijing Mandarin, and as [h] in Taipei Mandarin. The symbols "x" is used for the sake of symmetry with the other velars. (*inserts a reminder that IPA sym...

Re: Professor Mao's Introduction to IPA and Phonetics

Many phonetic transcriptions are neither purely phonemic, nor purely phonetic, but lie somewhere in between. For example, when transcribing Chinese, should we only use // when using the two-vowel-analysis? Well, why not? 也 /i̯ə˨˩˧/ 説 /ʂwə˥/. It's not common to bother with phonemes in actual Mandari...

More like "especially at him", though it goes to all in general of course.
