Re: The Landau Core Vocabulary

Attention MissTerry! Today I added 218 new entries to the LCV! I added in the eleven next most populous U.S. states (I already had the four most populous: California, Texas, Florida, New York), so now I have the big fifteen. I also added some country names that appear frequently but that I don't al...

Here's the Kankonian alphabet: https://khemehekis.angelfire.com/kankalph.htm Some of the letters and punctuation marks change direction depending on whether Kankonian is being written vertically (as it traditionally was) or horizontally (as a modern innovation to match most of the other big Leholan...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Is that why N, L, and R are all tied together? To reflect the dialectal differences in North Korean vs. Soith Korean? You should make a font for your alphabet! I'd like to make a font for Kankonian first, since that's the only Lehola script I know by heart. I wasn't aware that there was a differenc...

The newest word in Humrayan is "Khiospa," which is the name for Cytisus Scoparius, commonly called "Broom." Broom grows everywhere around the areas where I live; I needed a name for it in my conlang. They have bunches of pretty yellow flowers: https://www.linkpicture.com/q/cytisu...

Re: Has anyone ever reinvented something for a conworld? (ex: numerical system, religion, music composition, etc)

I had to "reinvent" the whole Hindu religion for my conlang's conworld and its conpeople. My conlang is supposed to be a sister language of Vedic Sanskrit, which split from Proto-Sanskrit [Indo-Iranian] before Brahmanism [the ancient source of modern-day Hinduism] fully developed. I use tw...

Wondering if anybody is phobic towards any conlanging features. I absolutely hate the sound the letter [r] makes at the end of a word. Like in the Spanish word "Tomar," or the American English word "Radar." All the conlangs I've ever invented since grade school were non-rhotic, ...

Woohoo! Congrats!! I'd say it counts as a milestone number, but given the insane speed you augment the Kankonian dictionary, you could as well have waited for 80,000 [:)] Thanks! And 80,000 will probably take a few months. I'm almost at 79,000, though. I just have some F-words to finish. On Monday ...
