Re: Lexicon milestones

New and improved! Now 166.67% more diabolical than 666! [}:D] Kankonian's lexicon has reached 66,666 words! Today I finished working on the fiction-within-fiction creatures from the Kankonian science fiction movie "The World Aside". While adding those words, I passed the 66,666-word mark with amopov...

Re: Weird Dream Thread

In introverted dreams, you walk along a landscape or inside a building, or possibly even stay in bed, but despite the scenic nature of your setting, what you see around you is not where the action is. Rather,...

Re: Weird Dream Thread

The way I see it, there are three types of dreams. . . . The third type of dreams would be cinematic dreams . In these dreams, your attention is focused outwards, yet you don't interact with the outer world of your dream. Rather, you watch and listen to something happening -- just like watching a T...

Talking about Shaleyan morphosyntactic alignment

Wana lepus aken. pass_away old man The old man passed away. Transitive verbs follow the old familiar SVO pattern when ...

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Happy twenty-third, Shimobaatar! As the fortune cookie goes: "May you live in interesting times". Isn't that a bad thing? "Interesting times" refers to things like rebellions, famines, general upheaval. It's "uninteresting times" that's the good one, isn't it? That's how Pratchett ended up using it...

The way I see it, there are three types of dreams. The Landau Sieve of Dreams. Interactive // Introverted // Cinematic I'd hazard the guesstimate that most if not all of my dreams are interactive to a greater or lesser degree. Even those where something like song writing or story telling is involve...

Re: Naming & Naming Languages

The Txabao are a nomadic desert tribe. As a result, I call them Txabao, which means "(the) travelers" in their native language.

Re: Weird Dream Thread

Maybe you do it already, or know it by a different name? I differentiate ordinary dreams (like that conlanging dream I just mentioned), which I consider to be usually short, disconnected or even entirely discombobulated episodes, fragments really, from dream journeys which are much longer, more coh...
