Re: Conlang word easter eggs?

I know I posted this in the discord, but in P.I.P, the word for boring and useless is *āwān₂as₂. The word comes from the Christian youth organization Awanas.

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

Why do, in some old documents, Russians call the Tlingits "колюжах" meaning thorns? I'm very confused.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I’ve been wanting to do a restrictive phonology for a while, and I recently came up with one. It’s inspired by the Lakes-Plain languages of Papua New Guinea. /t tː k kː/ [t d tː k kː ʔ] <d d t g k g> /m n/ [m n ŋ] <m n n> [ɾ] <d> [ʃ h] <d~t g~k> /i iː u uː/ [ɪ i ʊ u] <i ee u oo> /e eː/ [ɛ e] <e ei> ...

Birthdays!

This is a thread for birthdays! If you are going to celebrate, are celebrating, or have already celebrated your birthday, post it here!
I just turned 15 yesterday. It feels mostly the same, I’m a little disappointed.

Re: What languages influence your conlangs?

Catralian takes its aesthetics from Latin, but its grammar is something I came up with myself. The influences on grammar from real-world languages are too many to count.
Kumarian is inspired by Tamil, Sinhala, and Japanese in particular.

Re: Kumarian Revisited

Though I am determined to keep the project a-priori, I have thought of an interesting direction I could take this language. I could make it either a descendant of Tamil, or a divergent Dravidian language. The people of Kumari Nadu were supposedly Tamil.

Kumarian Revisited

I kind of botched the last attempt at this language, so I'm overhauling it and starting a new thread. It's still the same backstory, but the language is going to be changed to better suit my goals. My goals for Kumarian are: - Look and sound like languages of India (Tamil, Sinhala, Hindi, etc). - In...

This is a very interesting concept, and I'm excited to see more! Where did you find resources for Proto-Iroquoian?

Re: What would be the best approach for an Antarctic 'lang?

Thank you for your input! I was already working on the South American scenario, trying to reproduce a Proto-Chon language to work from. I'm thinking now because of your last suggestion, however.

Wow, I feel like I was pretty rude in these posts. I've dropped the project for now, but I might pick it back up someday. I thank everyone who contributed to this thread.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have recently been "hired" by a friend to construct a very small language (~200 words, basic grammar) for his comic. I have been paid ¥1,000 for my future services. I am currently working on the phonology and orthographies.

Secondly, a descendant of Middle~Old English spoken in northern France. The second is unnamed and currently in the conceptualiza...
