Conlangery Podcast - All episodes grouped by topic

Post by Nel Fie »

When I work on a particular aspect of a conlang, I find that it's very useful to get refreshers on the topic in questions - and there's no better than something like an episode of Conlangery; a piece of pure audio that can be easily integrated into largely mindless activities like dishwashing, taking a walk or watering plants in the garden.

However, the Conlangery website makes it a bit difficult to find all episodes related to a particular topic even with the tags, and I often spend a lot of time searching - so I decided to just fix the problem once and for all and make an ordered list. I've made it mainly for myself, but I thought others might have use of it too.

That said, here's some notes.
1) I didn't re-listen to every episode while making the list, and grouped them based on the title and the descriptions. So, some of them might end up recategorized if I listen to them again and find they don't fit the group. If you find that an episode is in the wrong group, let me know and I might change it.
2) Some of the groups are broader than others - I didn't see the point of having groups with only a few episodes, or a group with too many.
3) My understanding of terminology is quite likely not as good as it could be, so you might find some of the category titles unfitting. Feel free to let me know if you think a title change, or a recategorization on that basis is in order.
4) My main interest was in episodes about conlanging theory and practice, and related natural linguistics. As a result, I've not been too discerning about grouping anything I found to be outside of that.
5) Instead of ordering the groups alphabetically, I prefered to order them roughly in the sequence I would likely need them in (e.g. start with phonology, move on to basic grammar, etc...), or by general saliency. Within a group, I tried to keep the order chronological. This is mainly motivated by older episodes making references to earlier ones.
6) Some categories have inevitable overlap, so putting one episode into one or the other is less of an assertion on my part, and more of a choice made because it needed to be done.

Impressive work [:)]
There are some minor things that I would probably sort in a different category. Applicatives are not a word class but a morphological category that is usually marked on verbs, for instance. I would probably also sort the grammar/morphosyntax part a bit differently, but this might be a matter of taste.

Thank you very much!
I added a link to a viewable/downloadable PDF file, right on top of the list. I'll do my best to keep it up-to-date

Good catch - I moved the applicatives episode to the verb category (if you agree with that).
As for any other recategorisation or grouping changes, you're welcome to make suggestions! I did the best I could, but my understanding of linguistic terminology and the underlying branches is still fresh and shaky, so getting corrected on useage would be a good learning opportunity - and likely an improvement of the list itself.

Another tip: You might want to know it's "Rikchik", not "Rikchick".

Good catch! Fixed it in the post - the pdf will have to wait a tad longer because I've been adding onto it.

UPDATE: I added all the conlangs and natlangs that preceded the format change in episode 60, which were featured as a sub-section of a particular episode. You'll find them listed at the beginning of the "Conlangs" and "Natlangs" lists respectively, with the number of the episode, the name of the featured language, and a timestamp in parentheses showing more or less when the section starts in the episode. The update is included in the PDF, so download it again if you want an up-to-date file.

Is there some problem in the page or do I just lack some audio player?

No, you are correct - there is currently an issue with the website. I already notified them about it a few days ago, but no idea if and when it'll be fixed.
