Re: Preventing language change

My conpeople speak a conlang ... Is it supposed to be a conlang even in-world? ... that is designed to be kept the same as to make historic documents more understandable and retain the desired features of the language. Again, this seems to me a very weak reason for the century or even millenia long...

Re: Preventing language change

What things might a community do to try and prevent their language from changing at all? What do you mean by community? The government officials? The authorities? The school system. All the people? If there is an official board, that could turn out like to set a fox to keep the geese. If somebody g...

Re: Preventing language change

As your conculture is set in the future, it's maybe the manual of the spacecraft or the computer system of that spacecraft which brought them to the planet they now live at. (There is an early Star trek episode with such a document.) Are you talking about the godawful episode "The Omega Glory"? "Ee...

Re: Preventing language change

The conlang in the conculture is a conlang as in the conpeople made it as a conlang for the conpeople... But the underlying goal of retaining the language is because the language was designed to be organised and neat, and the idea is that language change would introduce irregularities or vocabulary...

Re: Preventing language change

A holy scripture would have no place in my culture unfortunately, but the idea of a certain document that must be kept the same is good - maybe it could be a declaration of something. My language isn't polysynthetic, but it is at the fusional end of agglutinative. As your conculture is set in the f...

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

Thanks again, OTheB! With how many persons have you spent your stay in xy? This is correct. Though if the multiple persons you are referring to are a distinct group (e.g. a family or group of friends), the term "people" would be more appropriate. Would you say so in a bachelor theses? Does the word ...

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

"It aims at" seems much more natural to me. However, I think I'd need to see the full context to be sure; the sentence feels awkward in isolation no matter which preposition is in it. I would use "aim"+"to" infinitive over "aims at" gerund Thank you for your quick answers, qwed117 and alynnidalar. ...

What is better: reasons of visiting New York or reasons for visiting New York? If we're talking about English then the former isn't grammatically correct. Either way, there are more reasons for choosing the latter. Thank's, OTʜᴇB. Here is a similar one: It aims at finding out the preferred type of ...

Re: Language Theft

A fully realized conlang is not an idea. It is a piece of work produced from them. The linguistics itself is the collection of free for use ideas in this case, but the conlang is a concrete, original piece of work, not even like a natural language in the respect that it is explicitly created by one...

Re: Language Theft

But how long does this sense of intuitive wrong last? Is there a terminus ad quem, or is this a non plus ultra? We've had two or three known glossopoets die the last few years. Is it now okay to take their languages and tinker with them when there is no known statement of permission? People do that...

Re: Daughter Languages or Dialects?

Given this set of cognates (numbers) between three languages derived from a parent language, would you imagine the following to be dialects of one language, or separate languages?
