Re: Other Creativity

I got bored and wrote this letter in a conlang from a project from many, many years ago. As such I made some of it up as I was going along, but whatever.

I'm going to say at least one minute. Ideally longer, between three and six minutes if you're able to. If not, any contribution over one minute would be greatly appreciated anyway!

Re: Contongues: Our answer to Wikitongues

I'd like to submit something, although I'm not nearly adept at my conlang enough nor am I sure that it's developed enough for anything more than a very brief demonstration. Honestly it's the same for me. I hope to submit a demonstration of my conlang but I'll have to spend some time on it in advanc...

Contongues: Our answer to Wikitongues

Hello! It's been a very long time since I last posted but I had an idea. I'm subscribed to the WikiTongues YouTube channel and I very much like their style of simple monologues in a wide variety of the world's languages. I'm aware that people do upload their own videos of monologues (or dialogues!) ...

Methods for organisation and motivation when conlanging

Hi guys! Looks like my last post on the board was May last year, I've been active in the chat but not much on the board besides reading the odd post that seems vaguely interesting... I feel like I haven't had a lot of time for conlanging, and when I have had the time I feel like I'm not motivated, b...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

I'm currently (very slowly) developing a con-script for my conlang. It's a right-to-left alphabet developed from a set of logographs that originally represented things that start with the phoneme it represents (much like Phoenician). I'm not dedicating a whole lot of time to it yet, but once I have ...

I think I saw you post something in this sort of construction in the irc channel, I think it's nice. Although, would it be "imperative interrogatives" rather than declarative?
