Re: Random ideas: Morphosyntax

Isn't (some version of) Kiwikami's Hypry a bit like that? The very first version required tenses to be marked with some agreement indicating what entity's perspective they were from - I'm planning to do the same thing with V4, but haven't figured out how it'll work just yet. Effectively, there were...

Re: Conlang Survey 2020 #2 Result

Always neat to see some statistics! How many participants did you have? Looking at the gender question, it looks to be in the 250+ range. Not a bad turnout at all. Any interesting changes in the data from Survey #1? --- *looks at "number of words" question* Perhaps the categories should be going ......

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I really like the triangular script. Very unique and still a continuation of the earlier ideas [:)] Thanks! Yeah, I think I've finally got it to a place where it feels like its own thing. Messed with the phonology a bit this morning, added an ejective series because V4 needs to continue V3's tradit...

At some point today I hit 1000 lexical entries in Alál's noun dictionary, but I'm not sure which word it was. Counting back I would guess either lmuál drought , lumùlal jerky, dried meat strips , or lmalu powdered cosmetics . I can say with certainty that the 1082nd word is ḷuḳuùàum feigned weakness...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - FINISHED!!

All conlangs have concultures, though, because you can't have language without culture. In this text, for instance, any translator confronted with a phrase like "the baron's treasure chamber" is going to have to resolve some cultural problems: do the speakers of this language have barons? If not, w...
