Re: Weird Dream Thread

I had a dream last night about the next US presidential election, in which I had a heated discussion with a coworker over the merits of Kamala Harris--I supported her strongly, he did not. This was unexpected because I have no particular feelings about Kamala Harris, know very little about her posi...

Well, gruesome certainly from our perspective (I hope!) not so much the cultures Denê sometimes find themselves labouring under. If you're good, perhaps even a gruesome recipe. Recipe? Daine brain pâté for Mannish folk and Hotai? I do have some notes on the number of digits of various races. And ot...

Re: griuskant conlang thread

Let's rephrase that question a bit. Suppose I said yes, then what of those without correlations? (Note: This is not a trick question. If there is enough correlation for you, then you may as well consider it seem as such. If it's not enough, then that doesn't explain it.) A more direct answer: No. O...

Re: Funny three-initial mismatches

Welcome to the board, Yalensky! Thank you! Though I could have sworn I had already made a handful of posts more than a year ago. Perhaps they got pruned somehow. You're welcome. We had a pruning not too long ago, and all of the old conversational threads are still pruned. Threads in the Everything ...

Re: Star Trek Ferengi Language by Timothy Miller and David Salo from 1995

There are actually quite a few multisyllabic Ferengi names: List of Ferengi on Memory Alpha Huh, interesting, one of the names is Nibor. I have a friend on another forum who uses that as her screenname, although her IRL name is Robin, so in her case it's obviously an ananym (like Trebor from the ZB...

Re: griuskant conlang thread

Question for Reyzadren: Do you have a method of converting English words into Griuskant ones? I had a look at your dictionary and I noticed a lot of correlations (so many English words beginning with th- have Griuskant equivalents beginning with zh-, etc.)

Whoa, this is crazy! So cool! Is there precedence for this in natlangs? This is not unique to Weddisch. It simply inherited it from Late Northern Old English/Early Northern Middle English.

3. Pronoun Adjacent Personal Endings Weddisch has two sets of personal endings. One set, which is considered the default, is used in all situations except when directly adjacent to a subject pronoun. The other set is used only when the verb is directly adjacent to a subject pronoun. This is not uni...
