Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Pronounce it yourself! It's your conlang and you know how to pronounce it, and IPA synthezators are either bad or expensive :) Are you implying that there are IPA synthezizers? I've been looking for that for ages. Can you provide some names? I'd gladly pay money for a tool that works properly in re...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XIII

I love how the first ring ended up a bit fairy-tale-esque - there's a snake-man, people wanting to eat people, looking in windows to find oneself not there... Agreed! Unlike in previous relays, that simply delved into chaos (which is good fun in itself too, don't get me wrong!), this one really sou...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XIII

Look, I don't mean to be rude, but for me it really looks like Dzêta is not working on their torch anymore. It's been six weeks since they last provided a status update. Maybe we should wrap up the relay already by Click retranslating k1234567890y's torch to English and publish the results? What do ...

both words are ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₃órbʰos “orphan” or its predecessor *h₃erbʰ “to change or evolve status”
Also, German Arbeit "work" also derives from the same root.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XIII

Sorry to ask, and I by no means want to put pressure on anyone (it's a recreational activity, after all), but did k1234567890y actually receive the torch? It's been 10 days since the torch was passed to them by kiwikami, and they have not confirmed that they have received it or are working on it.

I have heard of "sandtrap", but that's not the other word I was thinking of. Something more common, that's quite often written with a space or a hyphen. (Hint: It has to do with travel.)

Good! You got one!
The second one, if my sources are not mistaken, is sandtrap. As a non-native speaker, I have never heard that word before so I assume it's not that common, and the Google Ngram Viewer seems to confirm that.

If you missed the relay, you can still join!
Sign-ups are open and will remain so for most of the duration of the relay.
I'd say you can just be added to ring 1.

Re: False friends and other unfortunate coincidences

And it's quite certainly not a coincidence: the sense 'world' appears to be fairly transparently derived from 'light', and the Proto-Slavic *světъ already had both of these senses. I've always understood this thread that it's about false friends and OTHER unfortunate coincidences, i.e. it doesn't n...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XIII [now running + sign-ups still open!]

Torch received!

FYI, I will use Yélian instead of Paatherye; I'm under extreme stress recently and therefore don't have the time to write an elaborate description for the latter. Especially now that I know from opipik that the torch is apparently longer than usual.

I just want to chime in and say that I really like the declension system with its syncretism! I'm also a fan of the orthography which reminds me of the Baltic language.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XIII

I'd like to join too. After three relays with Yélian, I will switch things up a bit and use Paatherye this time.
