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

It leaves ambiguous just how, semantically, the derivative is related to the source, which means that, while sometimes you get polysemous derivatives, often the derivative's meaning is fixed and has to be learnt word-by-word, with little room for easy further derivation from the same source. That's...

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

It's 2018, and we still don't have a social media site that allows one to customise one's own font family, font size, font colour or even background picture. I'd be more interested otherwise on a pc we can always set your applications to receive everything in your preferred font and size... I tried...

Re: A Taxonomy of Conlanging (help me out)

As a conlanger I prefer to use a taxonomy from construction kinds... - a priori languages (built from non linguistic first principles) - a posteriori languages ( built from natlangs) - ex nihilo languages (built from scratch) rather than a taxonomy from purposes... - experimental conlangs (for knowl...

Re: Dealing with Conlanger's Block

you can try to write your diary in one of your conlang ... or translate your favorite book ... nothing is worth the use for going deeper ... however, the work in extension is worth the work in depth, the sharp specialists tend to cut off from the world when the generalists are better communicators ....

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

I am thinking of having no intransitive verbs in my conlang. Is this feasible and/or attested in natural languages? I would include a 'dud' object in all sentences that have unspecified objects. For instance: He eats -> He eats something. He cries -> He cries something (i.e. tears) He walks -> He w...

Re: How to design your own script

the coolness of a script is a matter of calligraphy... because any broken script can with a maximal usage becoming something... change the support and it can look as something known... on hard support it look runic or greek, on clay it look sumerian, with soft brush sinic... whatever your choice, ma...

Re: Esperantidos - pros and contras?

And if Zamenhof and the international congress had sat down with the ambition "let's make a conlang that's probably spoken by more people than any other conlang", Esperanto would have been an enormous success by that measure. However, they didn't, so it isn't. Esperanto is a failure judged by its o...

Re: Simplifying in langs derived from irl languages?

the simplification of natural languages is a branch of the conlanging ... Mostly related to IAL, but also to engelang ... More than naturalism made to give the illusion of a natural language in the context of a fiction (and why, when we see that the best fictitious natural languages are only fiction...

Re: Esperantidos - pros and contras?

I regret the abandonment of the building a priori for the switch to a Romance language ... the false good idea of tackling the European roots on a 17th century language operation a little at random seems tantalizing to attract the average learne, but victim of its success the rigid olygosynthetic pr...
