PALAEOTYPE ALPHABET - VISIBLE SPEECH - IPA EQUIVALENTS

Someone may need/want to know these kinds of eclectic conversions in handy-dandy chart form:
Spoiler:
Image
Daniels & Bright (1993). The World's Writing Systems. p. 837

The top two charts came from this:
Alexander John Ellis (1869). On Early English Pronunciation. p. 15
https://books.google.com/books?id=TR_QA ... 69&f=false


If you want A. Graham Bell's Visible Speech quick and dirty, Omniglot's page and this link
http://web.meson.org/write/vispeech.php

have some good resources and fonts.

[;)]



Chagrined (but not surprised) this page was missing from Googlebooks version :mrred: of The World's Writing Systems by Daniels & Bright.

And some resources for other Indo-European and Uralic languages.

Baltic/Uralic
Icelandic
Kurdish
Latvian
Lithuanian
Livonian
Sanskrit
[1] Google Books is not accessible with my screenreading program, so I cannot determine how much of a given work is available there.

The Xenology book by Robert A. Freitas Jr. is a must-read for anyone planning to do non-Earthlike conworlds, or just draw inspiration. It's available free on the internet!

List of conlangs with links!
Refer to me with any sex-neutral (or feminine) 3s pronoun, either from English (no singular they please, zie etc are okay) or from one of your conlangs!

I found a paper on case syncreticism if anyone wants to do it (since it occurs on about half of languages with case apparently) without copying Latin or German http://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/101635.pdf

I also found one of the most useless things: http://users.elite.net/runner/jennifers/english.htm

I can provide you with better Quenya resources than just Wikipedia. /r/quenya on reddit has some links to really detailed grammars and stuff. This wiki of theirs has tons of links and info on learning Quenya.

Someone said they were going to scan something called the Advanced Language Construction Kit, specifically, they were going to scan a chapter on logographic scripts, but they told me they were too sick to do it after. Does anyone have that?

[O.o]

Since you obviously haven't Googled "Advanced Language Construction Kit", and probably wouldn't connect the dots anyway, the ALCK happens to be written by Mark Rosenfelder, AKA "Zompist", who runs a certain other forum that you're familiar with. If you are interested in still posting over there (and really, even if you're not), you should consider having the decency to just pony up the 15$ and buy it for yourself.

I don't think the ALCK is particularly hard to find... it's on Amazon after all.

It's actually just called Advanced Language Construction, no Kit in the name. Might that be why you can't find it?
