Re: What did you accomplish today?

What does the last symbol in lines 1, 3, & 4 mean --- the crying eye? And why is it absent from line 2? If you're after opinions, I like the aesthetic of line 2 best; and the crying eye of line 1 better than that of 3 & 4. That said, I can see, perhaps, in the others some kind of local or scribal-t...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been rather busy as of late, so conlanging was put on hold for a little bit. Now that I have a little more time, I've been contemplating a vowel diacritic system for my abjad, and I am still working on an acceptable form. Here is a snapshot of what I have thus far. Dhakhsh is written in vertica...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I recently discovered a new marker (prefix?) which changes the state of a tangible noun to an intangible concept.

I do not think this applies to all tangible nouns—more research is needed.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

@bbbourq, I also very much admire Lortho’s script. But I’m also waiting to hear/read your follow-up on your double-star double-habitable-planet two-habitable-satellites-of-a-gas-giant setup you were working on on the CWBB. I haven't focused on that in a while since I started developing my second co...

Re: Lortho: An Artistic Conlang

Dhadakha—Lortho's writing system—has gone over a slight overhaul. I made a simplified version which makes it much easier to read. In addition, it allowed me to make a more practical handwritten version. Script (font) samples: Original (bookish) script: https://i.imgur.com/UL8q4CNh.jpg Simplified (co...
