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

Bob, I have to say, jimmydog000 is correct. On fora such as this one, there are certain conventions that are, while not strictly speaking required, then at least strongly recommended and encouraged. You may not be on the Internet all the time, but when you’re in Rome, it’s good to do as Romans do. Y...

Re: Linguifex's conworld megathread

Is it possible that “cent” and “canton” are related in your concountry? Is a “canton” (in the Swiss sense) like a “hundred” (in the Medieval English sense, a unit of local government)? Just because Kmtom kinda sounds like both. Probably not, but you never know. I haven't really gotten that far with...

Re: On making a conscript that doesn't suck.

Especially logographic conscripts are extremely lame. But a lot of things that I look for in logographic writing systems, I discovered within the past 15 years. It's all these little things that nobody even knows to look for. I am aware this is an opinion, but I take offense to that. I worked hard ...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

In a hieroglyphic-esque system (à la Mayan), assume a series of phonetic complements that can attach to the glyphs. Is it reasonable that these complements could begin to stand alone and form the basis of a syllabary, or is that implausible?

Re: Caber Logograms

I’ve been working on a descendant of Caber script. I tried to post the images but I guess they are height-restricted now and I’m on mobile, so a link will have to do: https://imgur.com/a/JQPeiA5

The good news is that I did take a database back up before the 'snap' so the data may be recoverable eventually. However, this is also a good reminder that if you want anything saved you should not rely on an internet forum.
Has there been any progress on this front?

If it's OK for me to toot my own horn here a bit, in this thread you can see how I started developing the Caber logographic script.
