Re: Celebrating 20 years of Kankonian

I want to have 75,000 words in Kankonian by the time it celebrates its twenty-fifth birthday this summer. To do that, I'll need to add 7,000 words between now and then.

Wish me luck!

Re: Lexicon milestones

Word #67,890 in Kankonian: la*engov , meaning "modulus of elasticity". It comes from la*eng , the adjective for "elastic", plus the suffix -ov ( ilt , tall -> iltov , height; burk , heavy -> burkov , weight, etc.) Does 78,910 words count as a milestone? 91,011? I'll probably at least count 101,112 a...

Re: False friends and other unfortunate coincidences

A smelt belongs to the same order (Clupeiformes) as the herring, the anchovy, and the pilchard. (I think the menhaden too.) So basically, the sardine order.

Re: Conlang YouTube, Metal Music, Emotions, Etc. [Split]

Youtube's default setting is to hold potentially offensive comments and spam for review (you can change it to allow all comments being published immediately). So if you go to the Held for review tab, you might find some lost comments there. It is also my impression that you'll still be notified of ...

However, I heard that there are other youtube users experiencing the same thing of having comments pre-deleted.
Hmmmm . . . weird. Sort of what I suspected. Spam clean-up, censorship, or just a bug? [O.o]

Re: What did you accomplish today?

After eating a meal with the best chicken enchilada I had ever had a few minutes ago, I coined a new Kankonian lexeme: eksakraka yagel, which means "one food that is so delicious it makes all the other foods at a meal taste bland". It translates literally to "golden oyster".

Re: When gender changed between past and present

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if in future English, everyone was a "they", because the plural "they" had followed the pattern of "you" and come to be both plural and singular. "He" and "she" would become as archaic as "thou" and "ye", but at least one wouldn't need to ask a person their pronouns ...

In Kankonian (and a number of my other conlangs, such as Shaleyan), this isn't a problem to begin with, because pronouns are all epicene.

Yesterday I got really energized and added over 100 new words to my Kankonian dictionary! Many of them were synonyms for tomfoolery/monkeyshine or purler/pip, but there are also many things I newly have a way to say in Kankonian. A sampling: fokatshia : focaccia (Terran borrowing) miso : miso (Terra...

This webpage refers to "the late Gary Shannon". It comes as quite the shock to me to read this page and learn that Gary Shannon has passed away!

Otto Kretschmer was a sock puppet? Huh. I didn't pick up on that at first, but reading over Lothar's posts, I can definitely see the similarity.

(And googling the names, I see they were both real names of German military figures.)
