Re: Other Creativity

The document was made with OpenOffice, so yea a word processor. However, if you are referring to the conscript, then it's just a .ttf font file, which unfortunately might not be suitable for your alphasyllabary. Sure, you can follow this formatting style, though I might do some changes if I decide ...

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: The CBB Conlang Census

I think it's about time I get Dijo on here. Dijo : (2016) Mostly isolating a priori personal language with OSV order. Uses a logographic script. The aim is to make a usable language to teach to a small indeterminate group and create a very small community that can aid with expansion of the language....

Re: OTʜᴇB's logographic adventure (Scratchpad)

Sorry masako for the delay. I'm not one to stay motivated to do one thing for very long at a time, but I've been doing a bit more work and have now finished all the logographs for my articles (and things that technically aren't articles but Dijo treats them as if they are). http://i.imgur.com/6HGfbp...

I certainly will be. I'm glad my waffling has sparked someone's interest [:D]

I have just woken up though, and if I do do some more work on it today, I should be able to post another update later today - maybe in the 1pm area (GMT).

Re: OTʜᴇB's logographic adventure (Scratchpad)

As I've been fiddling with the much simpler logographs, I've made a noteworthy discovery. I'm finding that the more consistent the spacing of the lines within logographs is, the better it looks. Take the examples below: http://i.imgur.com/4mPiM1K.png?1 You can see that it looks a tad strange. It's s...

Certainly "interesting"; not sure I'd characterize it as "easier to spell or pronounce", though.
I don't think that's the point. I think Hominid is more interested in the artistic potential of orthography reform, rather than the practical.

Re: OTʜᴇB's logographic adventure (Scratchpad)

I've been doing a lot of maths to figure out good proportions for the logographs to integrate them well into my alphasyllabary font and have come to the conclusion that it is not possible, and that I'll have to switch to the logography completely. The issue is that the alphasyllabary fills an area 1...

Re: OTʜᴇB's logographic adventure (Scratchpad)

And just 1.5 hours later, I've already made progress. I took the first 18 of my roots and came up with a very simple pictograph. I then tried to reduce the shapes as much as possible, rotating things and turning circles into squares and angles into straight lines. In the first image is a picture of ...

OTʜᴇB's logographic adventure (Scratchpad)

I think I am using "scratchpad" correctly here, but essentially what I'll be posting here is occasional updates on my logographic writing system intended to either complement or replace the featural alphasyllabary I currently have for Dijo. In this first post, I'll outline what I'm planning to do, a...

On creating a logographic writing system

I'm considering making a logographic writing system for Dijo as another option to my existing alphasyllabary. I'm gradually growing into really liking the idea of a logographic system, but I have some questions about them and about making them and I would be very grateful for any answers to these. O...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've completely reworked the font for Dijo's alphasyllabary. Instead of trying to cram everything into type-able characters and then trying to make a second font for numbers work with it, I'm using all manner of unicode characters. I'm arranging them neatly so the character code is almost like a sor...

Your original video and the others sound like English with a completely altered grammar with some East-Asian-sounding words thrown in, to my ears.
