Taking the opportunity to use my 200th CBB post to celebrate my 100th Yoshó word (not including pronouns & grammar): mosh "rock, stone; gray."

Re: If natlangs were conlangs

...That doesn't seem ridiculous to me? Dropping /j/ or /w/ in the context C_V seems pretty normal, especially if it's /j/ after a coronal. Consider Latin battuere > Italian battere, or Middle Chinese 張 pronounced something like *[ʈʂjɐŋ] > Mandarin zhāng [ʈʂɑŋ]. Now that I think about it, it does ma...

Re: If natlangs were conlangs

Oh, have y'all seen that conlang called English? I think it's been mentioned in this thread before.

Conlang documentation

I've seen a wide range of ways that people ─ including myself ─ have documented their languages. Biblaridion uses a spreadsheet; David J. Peterson has his template document. I myself have used paper before, on a long airplane ride (the birthplace of Rênnê, and its soon-to-be-worked-out relative). Bu...

This is a challenge for anyone who really wants to flex their translation muscles. Originally, I had entertained the idea of doing every single challenge, and might later ─ but that's about 750 translations, which might be a bit much for a short amount of time. So I, and anyone who wants to join me ...
