I haven't been posting on this thread, but I have been following it. How long have you been working on these stories of yours, if you feel like sharing?

Re: Eternal tense?

Nillahimma has an atelic which means "no beginning or end," which is pretty close to eternal, IMO.

Re: The Musings of Thaen

Oh, is this another term for subject and/or object agreement marking on verbs? Yes, that's right. I'm just used to polylangs, so I'm used to incorporating [:x] But now that you mention it, I may have verbs inflect for number; probably just singular vs. plural. But if I'm not careful, those verbs wi...

Getting more of a Tolkienesque vibe than a Norse one from those ablauts TBH, but still cool! That suits me just fine! :mrgreen: [:D] [<3] I do enjoy it! I like the look of the words very much.

The Musings of Thaen

This is a thread for me to post stuff about different conlangs that I probably won't flesh out for a while, so I can have some ideas down without devoting a whole thread to a lang and then letting it get buried, as I usually do.

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

Is Czech <ř> Pronounced by moving the tongue to where one would pronounce /S/, and making a flap/trill? If this phoneme could also be realized as a post-alveolar trill [ r̠ ], your description would be right. If you are referring to the realization of <ř> as a fricativized trill [ r̝ ] (aka raised ...

I think it's because they don't see them to be "harmless," but instead as an activity detrimental to the development of said children.

Re: Who's actually learning conlangs?

And I must give a shout-out to Princessa for his conlang didactics on Kozea. His videos capture a lot of the spirit of an L2 didactic-segment, as well as substance. His self-deprecating thread on Kozea was one of the first ones I visited on CBB. So...is Prinsessa a guy or a gal? Or do they prefer t...

Re: Lago

This reproductive strategy, as you've presented it thus far, is pretty much doomed to fail. What stops the non-dominant broods from running off and reproducing on their own instead of becoming servants? Why isn't the situation with Eendaryl, well, normal ? It certainly is in socially-oriented speci...

Re: Lago

A Quandary I think I want to make Lago isolating-fusion, instead of purely isoating. I just am not really happy with how it's going right now. I also need to shorten the morphemes to single syllables. That's one of the main problems. I am having to resist the call of morpheme to word ratios -- rati...

So, this thread is going to be an AMA, a scratchpad for my ideas, and sometimes a thread for posting anecdotes after the fashion of Micamo's threads.
