This question may already have been asked, but anyways... how do you save this wonderful creation of yours, faiuwle? I use windows XP and I can get the dict to run but I cannot save it in its own format: It will only allow me to save it as openoffice.org Base, which messes it up completely. So, I ca...

Download Google Chrome! It is what I use and it is great. Microsoft- IMHO- makes shit, but if you like IE then carry on. :P

Well, by complex sentences what do you mean? Do you mean obliques or relative clauses? How complex are your sentences? Well, to start with relative clauses, Quechua (and I think Tamil) treat them as participles and treat these participles as modifiers of the head noun/nominal. Example (In English, a...

My lang actually is active... I know this because I regularly have intratansitive clauses that treat the Subject like a patient or a Theme, as well as the use of nominalizing infixes to change meaning: Ie Kah "to swim" becomes activised "Swimmer (IE fish)" but when passivised it becomes "Fishpond"....

Vardelm and TomHchappel, thank you. I was just about to change my language's grammar from the actual Dechcantitive to my weird alignemt. Chose a Dechitcantitive alignment because it seems more "centered" to me: I see R as in the middle of a line while P and T are to the right and D and A are to the ...

Questions about my conlang's MA(& Active VS Nom)

I get how all this works, but I read on hear (a few pages back) that one cannot have D=P. Well, I thought I read on Wikipedia that Dech langs inherintly are so that D=P. I also use this in my conlang. Here is my conlang's MA: Class 1 argument: S=A Class 2 argument: P=D Class 3 argument: T I don't se...

I personally think it would be best if people wrote in and spoke to each other in formal situations in a constructed language. They could add in as many idioms as they wanted but could only use the standard version in schools, law and the major media. At home people should be able to speak (or sign)...

Applicative voices and Case

I do not understand the differnece between a "Dative applicative voice" and a "Dative Case". Is it that Dative case requires a transitive clause while a dative Voice does not?

Affixial poly conlangs

Hi, Sauo is an affixial poly conlang. It allows only one root morpheme per word and has an etreamly agglutinative morphology. I use Semantic affixes instead of incorporated nominals, and there is a weak distinction between nominals and verbs. For example, using Abi, which is the name of my cat (full...
