Re: Are you a conlanger or a conworlder first?

I suspect the reason many of us consider ourselves to be conworlders first is because we conlang as part of our conworlding; that this board focuses on that one particular aspect of conworlding might tempt one to assume otherwise though, because -- of course -- conworlding is far from the only reaso...

Re: Are you a conlanger or a conworlder first?

Definitely conworlder. Been doing it longer, been doing it better (read 'can actually do it well'.)

Re: Is conlanging sexually transmitted...

Hah, good luck. Easier said than done. Just bilingual is hard enough. Don't I know it! However, my wife-to-be might bribe my hypothetical progeny with "If you learn this language, you can talk to mummy without daddy understanding you..." This, obviously, is her attempt to motivate my acquisition of...

Re: Is conlanging sexually transmitted...

Any child of mine will be at least tri-lingual if her mother has anything to say about the matter, so what's one more? Still, languages are learned, not inherited genetically, so I don't think it's useful to consider them sexually transmitted as it might lead one to seriously misunderstand the phras...

Re: Eggs or not

One thing to consider, perhaps, (and exceptions abound) is that laying eggs will generally allow a parent to spend less time growing a child in their body, which might have advantages for species that need mobility. Species that give birth to live young that can't yet see, run etc. will need to spen...

Entirely possible, but I couldn't find a solid answer on that, so I defaulted to the more conservative pronunciation. I even saw suggestions of /xeruːv/.

Re: Greek for Cherubim?

I'm reasonably certain it's just Χεροὺβ /kʰeruːb/ in the Septuagint, unless I'm very much mistaken, in which case there's been no palatalisation here.

Re: Magic and Gods on Yantas

Did you ever play Black and White? One of my favourite games, and I'm getting kind of a Black and White vibe from this because some of the mechanics of belief and power were similar. The game allowed you to poach followers from other gods by performing miracles (good or evil at your preference, as t...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Totally gutted the phonology of my Proto-lang in an effort to make it somewhat prettier. Frankly though, I'm at a loss for where to go with it; puts me in the inverse position from where I normally sit, in that I now have a reasonably well-functioning grammar, but no lexemes. And now I have the firs...

Yes, exactly that.
I'm actually OK with the vocalist. It's just that the lyrics are... well, they're pish, if I'm to be blunt.
The solos were pleasantly surprising though; I expected something tamer.

Re: Metal Thread

Arch Enemy, I'm not sure what they perform live. A couple of videos from Wacken last year has them singing Yesterday Is Dead And Gone which is from 2011. Then again, most bands don't play stuff from ages ago unless it's like a fan favourite. I saw Lamb of God in 2009 when their album Wrath came out...

Re: What is your concept of a perfect language?

My perfect language allows any idea or thought, even texts thousands of pages long in other languages, to be expressed with a single phoneme. It's easy to pronounce and so intuitive that anyone anywhere speaking any language can become as fluent as a native speaker in five seconds. It's also so pre...

Re: What are your conlang name's change origin's?

Currently, I have Khedol [ˈkʰɛ. n dɔl] and Ǵurás [xɤ̀.ɾás], both descended from Khedas [kʰɛ.dɐ́s], deriving from khed , tongue, and the proper masculine Nominative suffix, -as .
