Geology and Sound Change

Is there a correlation between an area’s geography and the phonology/pronunciation of the languages spoken in that area?

Artifexian is awesome. Do you watch Xidnaf?

Trigender Biology Inquiry

The other day, I was thinking about a hypothetical mammalian species that somehow ended up with 3 genders. Gender A bears the sperm and fertilizes the egg. Gender B bears the egg. Once it is fertilized by A, it is moved to gender C which nurtures the egg and gives birth. My question is, hypothetical...

New Grammatical Person

I propose a new 4th person perspective, based on impersonal pronouns such as "One should work."

Agglutinative Morphemes

I'm sort of new to conlanging and I want to make a language just to get a feel for it. I'm thinking of making it an agglutinative language with few morphemes (along the lines of Finnish and most if not all Algonquin languages) and was wondering which morphemes to use. I do own all 3 of the Zompist's...

Any conlangs with non-Latin natural scripts?

Just out of curiosity, do any of your conlangs use natural scripts, like Greek or Cyrillic that are not Roman?

Critique my phonology

Most Logical Word Order

I'm designing a language with more emphasis on logic and would like to know, which of the 6 word orders would be considered the most logical? Though I could simply be biased by my English-speaking background, I feel as if the most logical is SVO. For example, in Jim hit Bill, it is ordered chronolog...
