[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!

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?

I'm writing a research paper on the Socio-Cultural contexts of Jewish Diaspora languages. If it's good enough, do you think people would be interested if I would post it here? (Could be useful for conlangers doing deep stuff on dialects of minorities and/or alternative contact languages.)

"A Survey of some Vowel Systems": https://web.archive.org/web/20150429105 ... stems.html

Gives examples of vowel inventories from three or fewer vowels to thirteen or more. This is a version saved on the Internet Archive. As far as I know, it's no longer hosted anywhere else.
