Re: How to post a conscript on the internet or a forum?

You want to check out Glyph Maker. Google that, if you really can't fint it I'll send it to you. It is a simple but intelligent program. You write a series of letters that appear on a grid and it draws the glyph for you. You get this picture just by writing bd:kfjo:xlnv:uy http://img512.imageshack.u...

Re: How do you guys organise your Conlang dictionary?

Spreadsheet. I can format everything so that it looks nice and it's easy to find stuff. With a little bit of hack you could also make all nouns get coloured the same way etc.

Hand movement language

Hi everyone,
I once read about a guy who was working on a para-language to communicate via gestures and pressures of a hand leant on the hand of the interlocutor, but I really can't remember where. Do you know anything about this guy? Maybe where could I found that paper? Thanks.

That's really difficult and at the same time intriguing! I'm still trying to pronounce the nareals.

Re: Eil - First Conlang!

Truly, I'm not worryed about inventing them, it's memorizing them that will become difficult! I was really taken into the idea of fluently speaking my language :( Developing your conlang to the point where it's actually possible to speak it fluently is a gigantic achievement by itself. If you can d...

Re: Eil - First Conlang!

Your phoneme inventory made me think of the amazon basin. In fact it was the <Letter>h-thing and all these w that made me think of irish and welsh. I'd love Eil to resemble irish and welsh, so I'm glad to hear that. Actually I think fer is the Old Irish version of it. :-) Oh hell yeah! xD So you do...

Re: Eil - First Conlang!

First, I want to thank you all for taking the time of reading into my para-linguistic madness and writing something back. I appreciate that. Moving onto the answers: Are you trying to say you've got aspirated consonants, fricatives denoted by a diagraph with <h> or what? Yes. I mean, I haven't delve...

Re: Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

That's more or less what I'd say. I'd sum it up as: Shared qualities: voiceless, oral, central, pulmonic egressive <t> /t/-specific: alveolar plosive <th> /θ/-specific: dental fricative Where /t/ is dental (often marked by <t> with a "bridge below" diacritic) then the difference lies simply in /t/ ...

Eil - First Conlang!

Hi everyone! I was planning to wait until the first draft of my language was ready before posting it here, but I'm eager for your feedback! Keep in mind that I'm not a linguist, I'm just a teen who likes the idea of making up his own language. You can find everything (i mean *really* everything) I'v...

Re: Dictionary check!

I'm on it!
I've got:
doreen = forest
fewyr = woman
wyel = silence
cel = writing
elar = talk, speech
dlun / dluwyn = up / down
fye'ir = lineage
nagfer = leader
lar = meeting
agfeur = head

Pretty basic huh? Still in development :P
