CBB Conlang Relay X

Post by Click » 20 Sep 2018 09:39


We've completed the relay, check the results out here!
Welcome to the 10th CBB Conlang Relay!

Anyone who signs up will receive a private message (PM) with a short text written in a conlang of the previous participant. The PM will contain some grammar info and a short glossary - just enough to translate the text. No interlinear gloss will be provided. They will decrypt the given text and translate it to the language they'd chosen earlier, and pass the document ("torch") to the next person in line. The last participant will send it back around to the first, who'll translate it into English one final time. Once the relay is completed, the final text will be revealed and compared with the original. I'll also make all in-between stages available. Each participant has 72 hours to decipher, re-translate, and pass the torch onward.

Step-by-step instructions are given below.
  1. Write down an English translation of the text you received.
  2. Translate the text into your conlang.
  3. Compose a short glossary and a grammar summary.
  4. Send a message to the next participant containing 2. and 3.
  5. Send a message to the organizer (me) containing 1., 2. and 3.
For reference, previous relays can be seen here.

I would like to participate, but I’m afraid I don’t know what conlang I’m going to be using.

I think I'd like to participate as well, but, like DesEsseintes, I don't know what language I'd use.

Thanks all for the interest!

I'll start making the relay queue soon. If you won't be able to participate at some time during the relay, do tell me what dates you're unavailable so that I can adjust the queue accordingly.

New sign-ups are still welcome.

I will be more busy than usual from 4th to 8th of october and from 10th to 11th, but if my turn should turn out to be inside this time span, I will still happily accept the challenge.
