Re: Project Stubby-Holder

I haven’t seen many other Australian-inspired conlangs (the only one I can think of is this one which I'm a big fan of) It doesn't look like he's posted much on here about them, but loglorn has worked on a few Australian-inspired langs too (one lang of his, Yashuhay, is derived from an Australian l...

Re: Chwakesha

Most pre-nasalised consonants cannot occur initially, excepting /ᵐb/ which occurs not infrequently (but often unnasalised) Was there a natlang inspiration for this specific feature? Not that I don't think it's realistic, I'd just be interested to see it in a natlang. Ancient Egyptian also had a /b/...

So I've been rather obsessed (what else is new?) with a conlang a few years back called Chavakani , which as its base is a blend of Japanese, Niger-Congo, and Austronesian aesthetic. I really like the idea, but as far as I know, the project has been dead for six or so years, so I thought I might mak...

What are you yammering on about?

So I've recently been obsessed with coded language and cryptolects, and looking for texts that might work for the use of parallel comparison, if anyone's interested in expanding their conlang lexicons in the world of slang and jargon.
