Re: Comfortable

I have always pronounced comfortable /'kɔmfətəbəl/ and interesting /'intərəstiŋ/ as 4 syllables. I don't see any problem with having 3 unstressed syllables after the first one.

Re: What kind of conlanger are you?

Neither category. Could be a loyalist with 1 main conlang after decades. However, my conlang does not have a large recorded vocabulary, its grammar can be summarised into 2 pages and it has no almost no intricacies, quirks or exceptions. Furthermore, it doesn't receive much acclaim. Could be a fill...

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

In French some words with the circumflex added them not due to any etymological reasoning but simply because the accent gives the words a royal look due to the accent's similarity to a crown. This is most commonly seen in the words trône and suprême. My question is, are there any other cases of the...

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

What's the nature/relationship of names with regards to the grammar of a language? Like, how would they work if the name is still transparent in meaning? And if a language had case, how could the case interact with such a name? If the component of the name had case, would it need suffixnauhme? Name...

Do any natlangs have two diphthongs that mirror each other somehow? For example, the protolanguage has [æo̯, oæ̯] after the vowel consolidation above (creaky voice excluded).
That other natlang that I speak has /ai/ /ia/, /au/ /ua/ and /iu/ /ui/, if this is what you are asking.

2. Also false. Why does it assume history is important towards explaining current events, especially if the conpeoples/conmechanics themselves don't. Events are happening now because it's the present, not the past. It is very possible to get the plot moving without any reference to history at all. ...

No, not really. Some of those are just obviously wrong. 1. False. Too many assumptions. It assumes that there are such things as "infrastructure", "eat", "garbage", "bodily wastes", "economy", "oppress", "peasants", "crops", "space", "protein", "fungus", "algae", most importantly: " reality ".

Re: Are you a hunter-gatherer or a farmer?

The problem I have with this claim/theory is that it doesn't address the remainder of the MBTI (what about the SP and NJ types?). Therefore, it is incomplete and doesn't even consistently describe itself.
