Re: Star Trek Ferengi Language by Timothy Miller and David Salo from 1995

There are actually quite a few multisyllabic Ferengi names: List of Ferengi on Memory Alpha Huh, interesting, one of the names is Nibor. I have a friend on another forum who uses that as her screenname, although her IRL name is Robin, so in her case it's obviously an ananym (like Trebor from the ZB...

Re: griuskant conlang thread

Question for Reyzadren: Do you have a method of converting English words into Griuskant ones? I had a look at your dictionary and I noticed a lot of correlations (so many English words beginning with th- have Griuskant equivalents beginning with zh-, etc.)

Re: Miscellaneous fun facts about your conlang to share and know

Whoa, this is crazy! So cool! Is there precedence for this in natlangs? This is not unique to Weddisch. It simply inherited it from Late Northern Old English/Early Northern Middle English. So there's my answer! Don't know how I missed that part. Does "Northern" mean it was spoken it what would be G...

Re: Miscellaneous fun facts about your conlang to share and know

3. Pronoun Adjacent Personal Endings Weddisch has two sets of personal endings. One set, which is considered the default, is used in all situations except when directly adjacent to a subject pronoun.

Re: Klingon, Vulcan, and Mutsun: Quick Okrand Languages Translation Projects

For what it worths, Earth humans can see UV quite well. It's just that the lens has this habit of blocking UV from getting to the retina. Claude Monet is as good a case study of this as any. Because of his cataracts? Because the lens was removed! Back then, they didn't have implantable lenses, so t...
