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

I don't know if there's standard words but you could make some up like: septentrional, oriental, meridional, occidental for NESW Thanks! [:D] That makes perfect sense, this is kind of a "duh" because I didn't even think about just using "oriental" and "occidental". I didn't even know the other term...

Re: Romanization game

What do you mean? opipik's original post has /u/, doesn't it? I... I have no idea how such a brain fart is even possible. Like, for fuck's sake, because I forgot to romanise the /u/ and /o/ differently in the list phonemes (but did manage to romanise them differently in the example words, at least)...

Does anybody know of a good, free online source for Farsi (including Tajik and Dari) grammar, especially the morphology? You probably already know this site . Here 's a pdf about Persian grammar, but it's apparently just a sketch and is missing a lot of stuff. Another pdf , specifically for Dari. T...

Re: Phenglộl & Jinqaṣyavri

The examples are hilarious. Is imperative expressed as a certain future tense? That's actually a good idea, so yeah. I was considering some kind of complicated rules for forming imperatives because it'd be kinda funny to have that as the only complex part of the grammar (especially when the concult...

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

I think calling them underspecified for length would make much more sense. Or opposing stable and unstable vowels wrt length. Thanks, I think that makes sense. But should they be grouped with the short or long vowels? I mean, grouping them separately seems like the most convenient way to go about i...

I'd be interested in alt-future a posteriori collablangs, especially if conculture stuff was involved. You know, you'd take a real language and then have it be influenced by conlangs and detail the interactions between its speakers' culture and concultures; maybe even roleplaying with characters lik...
