Re: Today I learned ...

If nothing else, it would be nice to know if you found my posts on what I thought might be the topic interesting, or if they were just a waste of time. EDIT: to take another ...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

all of that looks right, but I think at later stages of the game, perhaps not now, it might be useful to realize that the words are all capitalized. Oh, thank you! For some reason, I'd just been assuming that the capitalization wasn't important. Is Haiƀƀentou made up of three or more morphemes? [ti...

I'm not sure, given how little we know of proto-Vasconic, if we could make the argument that these are truly not cognates.

Re: S₁ŋ̩ʲːd-o Lat-u: The Singing Tongue

Is "singing" just the name of the language or is it spoken by singing or something? To answer your question quickly, the language is not spoken by singing or anything special. It is no Silbo Gomero. The word *s₁ŋ̩ʲːd-o appears to have meant "sing" in the proto-language, but is repurposed in many de...

*sorta, but not quite
i.e. it can mean "small" but doesn't here...

Is the third word the head of the phrase, then? If so, is <houx> another adjective?

I've been reading about coreless planets, and I'm wondering if it is possible they could contain a strong magnetosphere? By coreless, I mean a world that has no metallic core or magma, and is entirely rocky mantle. Is there a way I can get around having a core in order to have a magnetosphere? The ...
