Re: So it's time to make my language public

Esperanto did that. Awww :( It is [/i] pretty easy. Yes, I am confused; since this -> /'/ should indicate stress in IPA. I demand an audio sample of you doing it. Told you it was confusing ;) This indicates stress in my sample also. I will provide audio. Hum? Please disregard. I must have messed up...

Random word generator

Since I couldn't find one online that let me specify my phonotactics I made a script that does that. Right now is in python (a programming language) and probably esoteric, but if any of you wants to grab it and make a complete program out of it he's free to do so, or if the whole community starts an...

Re: So it's time to make my language public

Okay I appreciate your will to help guys. Here it is. The whole section about verbs is missing. And to reply to eldin raigmore, yes, I'm worried, and scared. But you since promised... :P Also, I don't know how to put table in here so I still need to think of a way to post the little dictionary I com...

Re: So it's time to make my language public

So good news is I'm almost done writing a grammar of my conlang. Bad news is: the file is about 20 pages, excluding my handwritten notes (that are more convenient to measure in pounds than in pages) and a hundreds-word spreadsheet dictionary, You either clearly want to post it or not. Post it? Do y...

Re: So it's time to make my language public

I just wish to give the best possible presentation of a work that is probably going to turn out a bad kitchen sink type of language. I will share everything of course! But I'll use any help I can gather to make it presentable so the first impression is the best possible.

Oh I'd be eternally grateful! I'm sure another pair of eyes looking at it would help greatly figuring out what's incomprehensible. May I share the file with you on your email address?

Let's play lost in translation

Hi board! I want to propose a game. We choose a sentence in english and we translate it in a different language. Then someone else will have the task of translating it back to english. This way we can point out what gets lost translating things back and forth and maybe why is so! If possibly, we cou...

Re: Morphologically relevant stress position change

No, rising and falling diphthongs refers to the position of the vowels on the vowel chart: for example, /ai/ is a rising diphthong because /a/ is lower than /i/: hence it rises. /ua/ is thus a falling diphthong because /a/ is lower than /u/. The reason I mentioned diphthongs is because in some lang...
