Re: Forth

Ok, let's add some more to this. I'm going to give it active morphosyntactic alignment. You have an "agent" and a "patient" which with transitive verbs looks much the same as NOM/ACC. With intransitive verbs, which is used depends on volition e.g. "eat" and "walk" will use AG where "trip" and "fall"...

Re: What kind of conlanger are you?

Closest match is scrapper, but I don't really "scrap" languages. I start plenty of things, work on them for a while, then for any of a variety of reasons don't touch it for a while - either I'm occupied with other things or I've hit a block or something else entirely, then I either have another idea...

Re: Forth

You are aware, presumably, of Fith? ... well that just killed all my excitement. I'm not that surprised it had already been done though. On the other hand, it can't've been too bad an idea if it has already been explored. That said, I think I'll continue with it and see what differences emerge betw...

Forth

So Khemehekis claims I'm a "prolific engelanger", and while I'm not quite so convinced I'm "prolific", engelangs are absolutely my thing, so I thought I'd try and deliver on that. After toying with some more "usual" ideas to get back into conlanging, I want to see how far this concept goes. Forth :w...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Welcome back! Have Orderlang and your other conlangs gathered so much dust as to be completely unsalvageable? Thanks! [:D] I think it's entirely possible some of my old conlangs could be salvaged. One I stumbled into was the tree-based one which I thought was pretty cool. I may return to them at so...

Re: Something new

In the last sentence of phonotactics, Im not sure what you mean. Did you leave something out? Also. Can /ng/ be a cluster? Oops. The wording was still from when I was writing it out and had a change of plans. I've edited the post so it actually makes sense now. I'm not 100% certain exactly what you...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Today, I re-emerged from the void. Aszev very kindly recovered this account for me as it had all but been lost to time.

Something new

So I've just had one massive nostalgia trip scrolling through these forums and recognising so many usernames and avatars from all (both) those years ago when I used to be active here. But I'm back now, and hopefully I'll get back into conlanging because I'm in desperate need of something new to inve...

Re: The CBB Conlang Census

You don't have Orderlang in this thread, OTheB? To be completely honest, I considered removing Inyi and Dijo considering they're both dead projects and are non-functional from lack of vocabulary. [:'(] Well, at least your Orderlang is the most OTheB-esque conlang on this board. It deserves to be li...

vodlem (2018) - isolating/agglutinative a priori, OSV order with Active morphosyntactic alignment. The language accompanies the people of invod - a limbo-esque realm that's the setting for a DnD campaign I am writing.

Thanks! I've been doing a bit on the world more recently, so I think this evening's plan is to start up that thread, then I'll come back to here with some diagrams and some new words.

I haven't touched the CBB in too long (I've been somewhat less dead on the Discord server though). I'm working on a DnD campaign that I'll be going through with a group of friends, so there'll likely be a corresponding thread in the world-building side where I go through that side of this all at som...

Re: Re:

Did this language have a shift of /ji/ > /i/, and /wu/ > /u/, at some point in its history, or did those combinations never arise? Absolutely no idea. I'm not making the language with any history in mind. It's completely a priori, and it'll be more on the personal/engineered language side than the ...

Re: Let's see how this one goes...

@OTheB: Nice script, I see what you mean about it being slightly Japanese. Can I ask what program you use to make it? I made it with Inkscape and FontForge. The glyph editor in FF isn't very nice to use, but you can copy and paste stuff in directly from inkscape. I made each symbol by drawing the p...

Re:

I notice your script lacks glyps for /ji/ and /wu/. Is this because the language cannot have /ji/ and /wu/ phonetically? if so you may want to reconsider the contrast between /ti/ vs /tsi/ vs /tši/, /si/ vs /ši/, etc ... as I believe that Japanese lost its /ji/~/i/ contrast by the same process that...

Re: Let's see how this one goes...

Writing system time! I'm pretty proud of this one. It's a syllabary, looks concerningly Japanese, but not too similar. It was made by first looking at some other scripts and picking out the more prominent shapes (most of the shapes are from katakana, hence the similar look), then assigning a shape t...

The lexicon has always been the downfall of my conlangs (I've recently reached the grand total of around 300 words in Qutrussan which is a first) so I'm with you on that. Nice templates always help as well. Also looking forward to seeing the writing system! 300?! My record is about 28, with a close...

Phonology things first, and I'll do the bit on the writing system next. I tried to be fairly symmetrical with this, but throw in the odd extra sound to make the phonology a bit bigger and more interesting. / p b t d k g / < p b t d k g > / m n ŋ / < m n ng > / f v s z ʃ ʒ h / < f v s z sh zh h > / w...
