Wait, did you say, in this post, that Town Speech/Urban Basanawa has over 10,000 words? If so, I can add that too!

What line would you write for that conlang?
yes...

lines? for what?

http://conworld.wikia.com/wiki/Lonniformia That was fun to read! You've clearly put thought into their taxonomy. (I also learned a bit of natbiology: amphibians don't have ankles!)

Re: Lexicon milestones

Does "works" mean "words"? Or do you mean most of the work on the language? Also, is Ridley the originator's surname (if so what's their first name?), or just a screenname? If it's a screenname, is Ridley's meatspace name known, or are they keeping it a secret? including but not just, and the name ...

I have pointed out that her name means "goat" in Standard German and in Standard German that word can be something derogative to a woman...maybe Egerius, Creyeditor, Iyionaku and Imralu can help confirming this?

“Horse” used to be “hros”; so we have the name “Ross” and it’s no longer obvious it has anything to do with horses.
In Town Speech-Plattdytch, the word for "horse" is pronounced /ɹɔs/ and is a cognate of English horse.

You're welcome.

Do you have a name for the class to which the long-longs belong? (Or should that be belong-belong?)

I feel like Khemehekis has killed this thread - no offense at all, but every small achievement pales in comparison to this incredible amount of vocabulary that Kankonian has. [:(] That being said, I'm still proud of Caelian that has finally reached the 1,000 word mark. The 1,000st word is the root ...
