Re: Superweapons in Your Conworld / Connation

Well, there are magic spells that can delete entire existences and machineries that might disassemble the space-time-*higher continuum of universes, so I suppose these count as more than superweapons in my conworld. Of course, the real question is, is one ready to fulfill the requirements, or how li...

While it's nice to be a centrist, I wouldn't use that term to describe myself. Indeed, several questions seem not applicable.

Re: Unknown term for Ergative Languages

^Not really. One can passivate an intransitive verb in triggerlangs because passivisation does not decrease valency there. (For example, my conlang has passive intransitive verbs.)

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

Have you considered the possibility that instead of such languages are missing an anaphoric object "it" from a supposed "meta-language", it's actually the opposite whereby "it" seems to be an assumed projection of (meta-)languages that you are familiar with? This veers more into conlangs than natlan...

Meta stuff is actually allowed in editorial sections, but embedding it into an article is tricky. If the commentary is short, you can easily shuffle it into your editor page. If it is much longer than the poem itself and appears beside it, then I guess you'll have to up your design to make it look c...
