Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - ONGOING (signups remain open)

I have to agree on what Sal has said. Cedh's translation helped changing the original text a lot but in the end this is a translation game and not a writing class.

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

Does anyone know the origin of the circumflex accent in Ancient Greek? So far I haven't found anything on it.

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

This is a common thing though. Some of the body parts in Slavic languages are irregular in the plural because they use the obsolete dual for the plural instead.

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

Personally, I'm not very fond of that idea. I'd prefer it if every ring has the same number of participants to allow both rings an equal number of chances to mess up the original text. Especially since ring 2's current translation is rather tame at the moment apparently.
