Well, I'm going through the trouble of making a computer font out of the textura hand used in the Hatton gospels and the proto-gothic hand used in the Textus Roffensis.

Hmmm. I can't remember the last time I updated this, and I have no idea what I put in. This will either be identical or completely different to the last one...

Alias(es): OTheB or some variation such as 0TheB or of course OTʜᴇB
Location: SW England
Date of birth: Summer, 2000
Gender: Don't like the idea of gender. My sex is male.
Occupation: Y13 6th Form Student.
Interests: Too many - most to do with computers or maths.
Favourite music: It varies. I'll like pretty much anything if I find it musically interesting. Most of it is classical, but I like my funk too.
Political ideology: Somewhere a bit to the left I think? I'm not really sure. I've created my own set of philosophies and morals over time and there is no group I can fit into.
Conlangs: Inyi (failed first conlang), about 5 failed loglangs, engelangs, and philosolangs, Dijo (isolating a priori that didn't do too badly), Language 8 (current project that is basically Dijo with a new phonology and improved grammar).
Other hobbies: Too many - most to do with computers or maths.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? In some kind of employment with a degree in something. Maybe in another country, but I make languages much better than I learn them.

Hello

Alias(es): Cov
Location: Jacksonville FL
Date of birth: Feb 29 1972
Gender: Male
Occupation: IT Consultant
Interests: Debating, reading, watching TV/Movies, changing the world, and apparently conlangs now
Favorite music: almost anything
Political ideology: Everyone deserves food, shelter, and clothing
Conlangs: None yet
Other hobbies: Gaming
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Semi-retired

New to the ConLang thing, but I find it interesting as a possibility for IAL. I'm not happy with the languages that I've seen thus far so I've decided to go down the rabbit hole that is this jargon heavy highly detailed road of phonetics. I would love to chat with someone knowledgeable of international phonetics.

From what I have read I found Morneau's phonetic alphabet and I'm looking to get it translated into the current form of the IPA. http://www.rickmor.x10.mx/phonology.html is a link to the article and here is a link to alphabet I'm looking to get converted to the current IPA - http://www.rickmor.x10.mx/segmental_phonemes.png

Also has anyone else attempted to replicate Morneau's work to find common phonetic sounds across major languages?

Thanks,
Mark

Alias(es): Rum Ham, MSPaint2001
Location: Vermont mostly, sometimes Illinois
Date of birth: '96
Gender: Male
Occupation: Busser when not at college
Interests: Linguistics (shockingly), music, really ancient history, cooking, writing on occasion
Favorite music: Oh boy. If it starts with the word "progressive," there's a pretty good chance I'll like it. My favorite band in the world is Riverside, recently beating out Pink Floyd, though I also love Porcupine Tree (mostly their later stuff), Steven Wilson, Lunatic Soul, most of Opeth, Dream Theater, and of course Led Zeppelin. Beyond that, I've recently discovered how great the morin khuur and hurdy-gurdy are, and I can also appreciate earlier Metallica, Pearl Jam, Yes, Genesis, Black Sabbath, and probably some others I'm forgetting. I can and will talk about Pink Floyd or Riverside for hours if given a reason to.
Political ideology: Some kind of left, but I see where the right is coming from.
Conlangs: Currently just Hala, but I plan to make some daughter languages out of it. I'm also thinking of starting an entirely unrelated one pretty soon.
Other hobbies: Writing, video games, making music (I was in some classes for it last year, and I loved them to death. Some of what I made isn't even terrible). I love watching Ancient Aliens for both the interesting archaeology and ridiculous alien explanations.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Ideally, working at a game company in a place where it snows, and with a job that won't make me hate myself. I want to make things new, original, and that can help people in some way, and I figure I might as well use the game design degree I'm working toward to do that. My dream job is playing keyboards in Riverside, though I'd need to get way better, the current keyboardist would have to leave the band, and Hell would have to freeze over first.

Nice to meet you Carson! (Your username is pretty cool [:D] ) We are of similar age, and I'm glad to see more high-schoolers into conlanging. It's a very underrated hobby, I think [;)]

KaiTheHomoSapien, thanks, and nice to meet you too! Yeah, I haven't met another Conlanger in my school lol. How'd you get into it? I have kinda always wanted to do it, but only started doing things other than relexs of English over the summer.

I don't know anyone at school who's into it either, only online. I first got interested when I started studying Latin. I became fascinated with the language, all those declensions and conjugations made me want to create something of my own like that. My earliest conlang experiments were rudimentary romlangs and Latin re-lexes. I've since branched out :)

Yeah, my first kinda big project(s) was an English relex with English phonemes and Romance phonotactics. Grammar was all the same as English lol. How do non conlanger peers react to conlanging? I have one friend who constantly asks if I can speak whatever conlang I am on.

I'll be honest that most of my friends don't even know about my conlanging. I've only occasionally mentioned it, and to my disappointment, most of them haven't shown much interest beyond brief polite comment. A few of my sharper peers have asked more about it and I've prepared a few stock phrases that I can recite to impress [:D] Even though the long answer would be that my conlang is not developed enough to just start speaking in it... [xD]

Also in possession of far too much useless knowledge about the Voyager Golden Records and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, for whatever reason.

Other hobbies: Scuba diving, sailing, programming (predominantly in Python and Inform 7), longsword dance, traditional animation, video editing, reading cheesy science fiction, etc.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Going on adventures somewhere, with a published book and a cat [2018 update: have successfully obtained a cat]. Having a "Dr." in front of my name. Getting involved in first contact somehow.
This was last updated four years ago, so here's how things stand in 2018.
