Re: Linguifex's conworld megathread

This is sort of a housekeeping post, primarily for my own organization but others could use it if they're curious. [*] Taltic (sorry, it's a ZBB link) "The requested topic does not exist." Needs to go to https://www.verduria.org/ instead. Perhaps https://www.verduria.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=605&p=2...

I get it in theory, but I have a hard time telling whether I'm doing it right.
Basically by not trying.
If you don’t think about what you’re doing and don’t listen to what you’re saying you’re probably doing it right.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Maybe it’s “satiation” or “saturation”. I tend to think of it as “Bill and Ted get all screamed out”. If you remember Bill and Ted fell into The Pit. They screamed all the air out of their lungs. Noticed they hadn’t hit bottom, filled their lungs again, and screamed it all out again. By the time the...

Thanks, Sequor! I appreciate knowing about Arabic. ... I think for the three parts of my first question, where you said “no, no, and no”, you meant “I never heard of any, I never heard of any, and (therefore obviously) I never heard of any”. Or do you really mean you know for certain there aren’t an...

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I have no familiarity with this show, but major urban areas in the South, Atlanta most of all, have seen huge migration from other parts of the country, especially the Midwest, especially middle/professional-class transplants. That means there are large numbers of people in Atlanta and other southe...

The cells with grey text represent values that are assumed not to exist by WALS. (I hope this isn't excessively confusing.) Actually I think these are just combinations that aren’t represented by any of the languages in WALS.info’s sample. I don’t think they state that these don’t exist; just that,...

Re: A short project

Syntax Most sentences are topic-prominent. That is, the consist of a topic NP and a clause. The topic NP is not part of the clause, and thus has no case marking or such. The clause is strictly SVO. If the subject is the same as the topic, the surface clause is, of course, VO, and if the object and ...

Re: My unnamed Con language

Porphyrogenitos means “romanization” instead of “orthography”.
You can’t have an “orthography” until you’ve settled on a writing system for your conlang.

With that small change the advice in that post is all good; and I myself wish I had followed it earlier!

Very, very close! welledges is indeed "electoral constituencies/districts". teketting has decidedly negative connotations, however.
Gerrymandering?
