I forget if I ever read the grammar of Kankonian. If I did, it would have been more than 2 years ago and I study a lot of conlangs that people post online.
You can find my Kankonian grammar at http://khemehekis.angelfire.com/basic.htm
I study word meanings a lot in a ton of languages, so I can totally relate to what you've done here.
and:Implied.Adjective : I never encountered this in a real language. It could happen, though.
Woo-hoo! Is this something that's for once beyonf ANADEW?
Specifically adult dog : I specialize in words about animals and their etymology and I think this is rare in natural languages.
You're saying it's rare, but it is known?
A complete dictionary from it soon? Oh, there's not much interest in Okrand's Atlantean. We had a Bruce Irving recently come on and make 200 "hand-crafted" words for us but other than that, the most that happens with this language is that recently and in 2018, I translated about 20 and 5 pages of text into the language and make up new words and grammar for that. The 20 year old facebook group I run for the language now has 500 members but few ever do anything.
Yeah, I was under the impression that there wasn't much interest. I've never heard the name Bruce Irving; does he post under any screennames (along the lines of me posting as "Khemehekis", or Mark Rosenfelder posting as "Zompist"?)
I worked almost all of the corpus and dictionary out, mostly starting 2006. I recently did a complete, hand-written revision.
I have also studied Klingon and done some translations into it. But it's not exactly Klingon, I think it's like a "learner's Klingon" or "alternative Klingon" that I made which is easier to translate into and allows me to make up new words and grammar at will.
So it's not canon?
Well, if you suggest I vote, well, sure, I'll vote.
I see you voted both of them up. They both got in; "headphones" is DannI'
(Dany being a Pakistani headphone manufacturer), and "disorder, disability, syndrome, condition" is HarqIn
(after Tom Harkin, the senator who championed the Americans with Disabilities Act).
Aside from that one big Proto-Indo-European one, I just did one that's like an Ancient Bantu language, which is one of the major branches of the Niger-Congo languages of Africa. But the words are slightly altered Swahili and I had no reference to a Proto-Niger-Congo or Proto-Bantu or anything like that. I studied a ton of Bantu languages using my limited resources and made it based on them and then just stuff I made up. It's a lot like Swahili.
I'm sure the people on this board would want to hear about it; it's not every day someone creates a Bantu conlang on this board!
All4Ɇn has a Southeast Asian conlang
here, which can be written either with a Vietnamese-style romanization or with Chinese characters, and I love it!
I haven't met them. I'm not sure if I've seen Linguifex with his Caber logograms.
Check out this thread. I think you'll like it:

I hope you can get it online. It sounds really interesting to me.
