Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Sevish, a microtonal music artist. I think it's really cool, like learning a new language for music. Once you get used to hearing all the new notes, that is.

Re: Ni: A Conworld

I just read this thread for the first time, and I have to say, this is really cool! I especially like the 4D aspect of the world, and the biological information. Also, that blender Niotian is interesting. I don't really have any constructive criticism or questions, but it looks great so far!

Re: The CBB Conlang Census

featural syllabic alphabet. Isn't that an abugida? I don't think so. An abugida places primary importance on consonants, and vowels are secondary. This conscript is more like Hangul in that vowels and consonants are equally important. I've heard Hangul called an alphabet, but I think syllabic alpha...

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

How I've done this in the past is use an ordinary music program to create a midi file, and then use a programme someone pointed me to to tune the pitches to the ones I want. I believe the programme was aimed at changing temperaments, so that might be a key word for you to look for - because of cour...

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

This is probably the wrong website to ask this, but I don't know where to even start looking. I'm looking for software that lets me play music using custom frequencies in Hz for each note in the scale, and that also lets me create equal tempered scales with different numbers of notes. I just calcula...

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

The difference is, that the agent in ACT.R is the subject, where in the PASS.R it is a by-phrase (often realised as some oblique case in other languages). The patient is the subject in the PASS.R and the object in the ACT.R. Let's imagine an agglutinative language with nominal case and verbal voice...

I just started listening to Panic! At The Disco, and I'm in love! :mrgreen: I can't believe I've never listened to them before. Amazing music.

Although it's very hard to decide, this is one of my new favorites:

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

Are there any natlangs that have separate third person singular and/or plural pronouns for different distances from the speaker? Kind of like how proximal, medial, distal, etc. determiners work, except for pronouns.
