Re: I am back from the hospitals after three issues.

But other than that, I’m doing pretty well! Sounds like what logicians call "overwhelming exception". I was really frightened when I read this post. I really hope I don't have to go through all this when I'm in my sixties. Of course, I've been underweight for most of my life. Glad to hear...

Re: Nicely presented conlangs

I'll always opt for mentioning Monoba's Siwa and Mecislau's Novegradian , Alashian and Očets when this sort of question is asked. They're well described, have lots of examples when it comes to lexicon, morphology and syntax and since Mecislau's conlangs are tied to the real-world, you'll also find ...

Re: Lexicon milestones and discussion of lexicon growth

So yesterday I did 125 new words for Kankonian and found many concepts that were missing. Some of them were obscure words like "geat" and "giallolino", but some were words everyone knows, like "glove compartment" and "group sex". I mean, if I didn't already ha...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I was going to ask for your opinion on this matter actually. I'm not really sure what exactly constitutes a "word." I've been debating with myself about what exactly a word is. At the moment, for example, I think "Walk" is a word, but the lexemes "walks," "walking...
