Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

Wow, the current redesign of the CBB is very much screaming “21st-century minimalism”.
I like it (except that everything in the post editing screen is sort of mirrored).

Now it's perfect – please don't change the colour scheme anymore!

Re: RIP cursive handwriting..

I was taught cursive in grade 2 ( Vereinfachte Ausgangsschrift ), but my usual handwriting continues to be terrible to this day. Two years later, I received a small book on improving one's handwriting and the look of one's schoolwork: Inside were a few different scripts, and I soon learned to read a...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I translated this song into the early South-Western dialect of Middle English (from a ca. 1250s London dialect). I erased all references to Christianity if this translation ever were to be used in a special context (Fantasy-RPGs) and a German translation is on its way.

Some folks wanted to see the cards I had made in another thread... so I worked on an entire new rank for one of them and then compiled an image showing a good deal of them so that folks can see what they look like … This is some impressive work.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

1. Modern English still contains words starting < wr >, often homophonous with words starting < r >. wrack/rack, wrap/rap, wrath/rath; wreck/reck, wrest/rest; wright/right, write/rite; wrote/rote; are just some examples. I understand this reflects an originally phonemic (-etic? I think it's -emic?)...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I had an idea for the health care system in the Ladroman Republic.
One thing may be said: If the state-provided services aren't enough, one can buy additional modules, specific to one's needs, from semi-private insurance companies.

This is a literal shower-thought.

94) How many cases should we aim to retain
b) 2

95) What case should we remove first
f) Vocative

(If I may, I propose this order: Voc: (is dropped), Abl: -> Acc, Gen: -> Dat, Nom: -> Abl-Acc)

Re: Are you a conlanger or a conworlder first?

Actually I started out as a conworlder when I was a kid. It was my interest in maps that started it. I would draw maps of fictional worlds, countries, states, and even detailed city maps (those coincided with my obsession with Sim City [...]). Sim City ? That's where it all started for me, as well!...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been constructing fonts lately (using a computer program and a few manuscript photos). It took me forever finding the two hands I'd be pleased with, but I think I found the perfect match (a textura used in the Hatton Gospels, ca. 1160, Kent and a proto-gothic minuscule used in the Textus Roffen...

Either it's “I'm just gonna use the most common name in both the example and the translation, regardless of meaning” or Iyionaku just made a mistake. It's a mischief, either way.
