Re: How NOT to Conworld.

I'm also a little tired of non-human sentient beings. Again there's nothing wrong with it and theoretically you could do something really cool with this (the Meduse from the Binti trilogy come to mind as something I read recently that made great use of this). However, I can't help but feel that fan...

Re: The Landau Core Vocabulary

I've PM'd Bloomylele. But, @khemehekis: I notice you’ve got various meanings of the (transitive) verb “tackle”. But do you have any of the noun “tackle”? Like fishing tackle? Or block-and-tackle? Or wedding tackle? I don't have any of these. I wouldn't consider any of them core vocabulary. They're n...

Ooft, long time without a post here! I've been taking time of Damta for most of the year, but the grand plan still is to develop daughter languages of Early Bokisig; I have sketched out three, but not got much further in the development. Even grander plan: I'm planning to, at some point, write a sh...

Re: The Conworldology of Vagrancy

Now, I remember reading that vagrancy laws came to America during the Jim Crow era, i.e. Reconstruction, and were used to prosecute and persecute African-Americans by White Southern politicians who tried to keep them "in their place". In any event, vagrancy laws and homelessness laws are t...

No - nobody knows that a rotated 'e' indicates a schwa, and if they did they wouldn't know what a schwa was. Nobody?

Re: Why do you think he's still alive?

I also noticed that Kobardon distinguishes between the two interpretations, because why in Kobardon is morphologically an intransitive ...
