Nah. It's a bit strange, maybe, but stranger coincidences occur in natlangs all the time.

If you don't like that first idea I had, my second is just to let them be and stray in an other direction.
I kill threads!

My next project will be to create an isolating lang to win the mind rank.

So I wrote a song about the spam thread, to the tune of "It's the End of the World As We Know It." Plus a few extra verses. I managed about 20 of the 100+ pages - not too bad, but I'd go mad if I tried to squeeze it all in there.

Next time I'm alone and out of earshot of people who will wonder what the heck I'm singing, I'll record it.
Maybe.

Trying to see if I can put something together for the Whorelang thread. Hey, Ossicone, what would you consider an adequate description of pragmatics?

I only really need one pragmatic detail. (But they're my favorite details. :3)
A description of one part of the lang that changes based on context. Just saying formal/informal pronoun change is not good enough.
Hmm... that's not very helpful. I'm sure you'll do something good enough though.

So, an evidentiality system that functions differently depending on whether the speaker is being sincere or is trying to be sarcastic would work? Okay.

Is this how time at home with your husband usually goes? I expected there to be a lot more blood and screaming.

Oh, how I have missed this place, and all who inhabit it!

Unfortunately, I still won't be able to be very present on the Board for some time yet. I moved very abruptly, and I am hounded by several things which inhibit my ability to both write my book and conlang. [:'(] But have no fear! I have not completely stopped either of them (they are more on hiatus) and I will return soon, in full force! [:D]

I am thinking of a protolang with this phonology:

Onset
Labial /mʲ mʷ pʲ pʷ pʰʲ pʰʷ/
Coronal /nʲ nʷ tʲ tʷ tʰʲ tʰʷ θʲ θʷ ɾʲ ɾʷ ɬʲ ɬʷ/
Dorsal /ŋʲ ŋʷ kʲ kʷ kʰ kʰʷ/
Glottal /ɦʲ ɦʷ/

Coda
/e̞ o̞ ʕ̩ m̩ n̩ r̩ ŋ̩/

Syllable structure being onset+coda. I am thinking it might be isolating analytical, but I don't know yet.

Holy secondary articulations batman!

I don't see that being stable for very long. Should result in some interesting diachronics.

So... I just started playing Katawa Shoujo the other day. A very nice game, though I am admittedly a little disappointed you cannot get it on with the librarian Yuuko.

I played (or rather, read) up until the part where you finally get out of the hospital before I got bored and loaded up a game where you shoot dudes.
