Re: Conlang word easter eggs?

It's funny because I was just about to merge these two old threads when one of them was suddenly revived..! I was about to suggest also merging the newest word thread, since the Easter egg back story was what I was aiming for. I didn't know either that this phenomenon was called an Easter egg. A co...

What is the newest word in your conlang?

I couldn't find an earlier thread on the same topic, so I though I'd create a new one. With some inspiration from this thread I would like to know: what is the most recent addition to your conlang's lexicon? How did it come to be (sudden flash of inspiration, derivation of previously existing words ...

Re: The longest and the shortest word in your conlang

Interesting idea. Poswa has many words that are simply CV, but I do have a lexical entry for i "to feel, touch with a body part". Whether it really constitutes a word is open for question, since it changes to /ž-/ in all inflected forms, and to /j/ or /l/ when lexically combined with another word. ...

Re: Uhoq Vernissage

As for longer posts, I may not be the best person to gauge whether they work or not by! If you look at my world's thread, you'll see I tend towards long posts.

Re: Uhoq Vernissage

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! And you've provided very helpful critique! I apparently did not remember to include a romanized version of the map, but there is one now, so hopefully it'll be easier to follow the navigation in the text. The world in which Uhoq exists is paralleled with our real ...

Re: A Collaborative Stone-Age Conlang

I am interested! I'm quite into prehistory and the Stone Age lifestyle in general, so I think it could be fun helping create something from that inspiration. I have never collaborated in conlanging before though, but I'm really excited about it! [:)] Is the Stone Age setting in the temperate equator...
