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

It does make me wonder about English, though - what's the analysis of "cashier number 12", I wonder? Should we treat this as an appositive "cashier" and "number 12" are both names for the same person? But we never give it the intonation or spelling of a normal appositive. Should we instead treat th...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Uu, very little I'm afraid. Rireinu is dull as ditchwater, but a great place to raise kids. Speaking of kids, I think the Rireinutire kinship chart is the most recent thing I've finished. Lately I've been concentrating on translation-spamming ConWorkShop. hehe! I'm hazarding the guess that your com...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Curious: what does it signify? It looks like it's made up of three words, is that right? It is indeed a compound, formed on the basis of what seemed the most salient quality of the galactic concept 'lesbian'. ropepu adj. male repiya n. R lover, girlfriend rupa- vt. reject -piñi aff.

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

I have never heard of him, but the name fiziwig does ring a bell, so i did some searching .... no obituary, but it seems he was born in the early 1940s, so he'd be close to eighty now if still alive. I assume the present fiziwig.com is run by a family member, though it seems it hasnt been updated i...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

My newest Kankonian words: phalksarenphuphzin , meaning "known unknown" and phalirenphuphzin , meaning "unknown unknown". They shorten to phalksar and phalir respectively. These two words are borrowed from the Achel pralksarenphuphzin and pralirenphuphzin , which translate respectively to "outer-la...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Added the word for lesbian to my Rireinutire dictionary. ropepurepiyarupapiñi /ˈɹopepuˌɹepijɑˌɹupɑpiŋi/ n. R lesbian It's not a word that gets much use, but the Rireinukave have had their horizons broadened quite a bit after coming in contact with galactics. Curious: what does it signify? It looks ...

I like the aesthetic of that script. Anything in particular that you like? I'd actually been thinking about this question. I think what I'd say is that you, by chance or by design, struck that balance between the letters all looking the same vs letters of radically different shapes on one axis, alo...
