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

I noticed that the English sentence is ambigious with regard to the scope of why . You could ask about the reason for thinking or the reason for being alive, IINM. I also noticed that Kobardon distinguishes between the two interpretations, because why in Kobardon is morphologically an intransitive ...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

the letter ə will be recognized by a good portion of Anglophone readers. But is "a good portion" likely to apply when it's people who're going to be spending their time on some shitty horror/fantasy story written by a nobody and posted on the internet? Not that only middle school dropouts...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Kind of a stupid question, but... if a conlang (in a story) is meant to be easily pronounceable somewhat correctly by at least English-speakers (and my Finnish-speaking dad lol), possibly German-speakers too, maybe others but dunno, would using <ə> for /ə/ be pronounceable to people who have zero k...

aUI has a pretty Englishy syntax too, which was one of the reasons I wondered if primitive was like aUI. (Another reason was the name -- words built out of "primitives")?

Re: What I have been working on

Started another conlang. This one is called primitive, and I already have about 416 words so far in about 2-3 hours. [:D] Once I figured out my concept, this conlang is practically writing itself. Turned the language into a spreadsheet matrix. It has the same grammar as English. I will post a link ...

Re: The newest words we’ve learned in a natlang

Scrannel. While googling "scrapper conlang", I found a webpage with a long list of English words. Nearby "scrapper" were "scrappy", "scrapie", and . . . "scrannel". What's "scrannel"? Inquisitively I googled. https://www.merriam-webster.com...
