Perhaps if I can ever pin down the phonology. I've been through at least thirty iterations so far.
I’d love to see it.

Re: The Great Exposition of Ruykkarraber

Charming thread of conversation. This is basically how I read it:
"Mark Rosenfelder is WRONG and doesn't understand transitivity because he called intrans subjs Experiencers!!! I also hate all his conlangs!!!!"
But idk. I’m just strange like that.

Re: Large Inventories

My conlang TLFKAT had several iterations where the consonant segments numbered nearly a hundred. I believe this version contained 101 consonants?

I should go back to working on it.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I lost sleep adding o to Apwapɨrɨng. Please elaborate! It’s not very interesting I’m afraid. Apwapɨrɨng is a language with two phonemic vowels /a ɨ/ and much allophony which thus far had only yielded the graphemes a i ɨ u . I’ve now decided verbs starting in /wɨ/ wu- when combined with the prefixes...

Here are some examples of regular plural marking:

Lovely!
I have a disproportionally large number of CVssV words.
This is the opposite of a bad thing.

Re: What do you do when a conword happens to match a slur?

I wouldn’t do anything. A word the spelling or pronunciation of which happens to appear similar to that of a slur or expletive or embarrassing body part noun in another language is bound to occur in almost any language, constructed or otherwise. A string of sounds without intent to offend or harm is...
