Re: What I have been working on

Question: Or all or most of your verbs regular, or do you have about as many irregular verbs as English or German? The truth is, I do not really know. All verbs present tense start with a B or a D. All past tense verbs start with a K or an L, and all future tense verbs start with either an H or a J...

Extrovert. Good to know I'm not the only one here. [:D] No, I have no desire to attend them because school reunions are non-canon. What do you mean by "non-canon" here? Also, I like achievements, but I don't think this E/I relates to conlanging/conworlding at all. For example, my conlang ...

DruidPeter: This really strikes me as a Germanic language. Is it a future descendant of English, German, Dutch, or another natlang from the Germanic branch around today? Names like "Russtadt" look like countries on a future Earth. Also, if you don't mind me blowing my own horn, I'd like to...

Re: Extroverts, introverts, dopamine, and conworlding

I don't think this is quite accurate. I know anecdotes don't translate to data, but in my own experience, I'm a chaser of novel situations, foods, locations, etc, but I'm also extremely introverted. I love people that I am close to, and in the moment speaking with a small group or one on one about ...

Re: Silicon-based life

Ah, I see. Thank you for explaining this. And I suppose that means that most sapient species will be psychologically similar to modern humans Depends what you mean by 'similar'. It's certainly possible to have species who are on average very different from humans, to be sure. But not mystically dif...

Extroverts, introverts, dopamine, and conworlding

I am an extrovert. I am deeply attached to the several dozen friends I have. I never get tired of socializing. I don't need alone time afterwards. I've never had a problem with being shy, nor do I even understand what shy people are so afraid of. When I take a Myers-Briggs test, I come out as ENFP. ...

I'm guessing you're typing at a device that doesn't let you type non-ASCII characters? Why do you use unrelated forms of proper names like Wilex? Or did you mean the "wily" king? A question: You say "Afer" has the A in "after". Is your "after" with an A like i...
