Works for me.

I'm happy to go first if nobody else wants to, by the way. Also we'll need someone at the end to just translate into English, so if you don't have that worked out.

I hope you picked a text without lots of references to modern technology, otherwise I'll have to go all derivational morphology on its ass to make words that describe it. 8)

Yeah, go ahead with it. ;) Maybe make a new thread to draw people's attention again.

Yes, sounds good.

I don't really care which.

Ok. I'll probably start it today. I'm first on the list, translating from English to Romanic. Now all I need is a text, though I think I found one.

Does anybody mind doing the English translation in the end?

Well, I *could* translate back into English, but then again if I'm already translating earlier, that *could* bias me somehow...

But as I've pointed out before, it's not like we're doing some sort of scientific experiment, it's just for fun...

Well, here is the list:


Risla - 29 (May)
Zoris - 2 (June)
Naloolkili – 6
Mr. Z – 10
Lyhoko Leaci – 14
Bedelato – 18
Qiihoskeh – 22
Nortaneous - 26
Cedh Audmanh - 30
Trailsend – 3 (July)
Finlay - 7
Zoris - 11

Those are the final dates. Each person has 4 days. I have a text, but I need to edit it a bit (so it won't be easily recognizable, and won't reference unrelated, difficult to describe things), so we'll probably start on Thursday. Sorry it takes so much time.
Anyway, Risla starts the chain and Zoris translates twice, once as part of the chain and once finishing it. Prepare yourselves. :D

I'll suggest you create a new thread called something like "Conlingual Telephone", would help since there's already another unrelated thread called Conlang Relay, and people would expect to see that at the original post. Or you could edit the first post of this thread and change the title...

That order works for me.

By the way, Zoris, would you like to try translating out of the South Eresian script, or should I just send a transcription? :P

If I were using a more developed language I would say go for it, but Sęimaką isn't quite ready for the prime-time if you know what I mean... I'll take the transcription to buy myself some extra time :P

I've never participated in a relay before—what exactly is the procedure? I'm looking over past relays but I'd like to be sure.

Get text, translate text, pass text on.

In this case you kinda have to pass on a glossary/grammar of your language too – with the natlang telephone it can be assumed that the other person is semi-proficient in the language at least and/or has access to grammars online.

I assume everything's by pm?

My language has fairly complicated morphophonemics, and an unintuitive orthography that further clouds the matter—should I provide a morpheme break-down (I guess an interlinear gloss without the translation), or would that ruin the fun?

I think you should just pass on the plain text, but keep correspondence with the person next in the chain. They should be allowed to ask you questions about your language, after all.

Almost. Alright, do you want to translate to a conlang or to English (at the end of the chain)?

I'd like to go ahead and start; we can add people near the end of the chain even if we've begun. If you need a passage, I can get one quickly.

To a conlang would be preferrable

EDIT: Into Tlalysa

I basically have one, though I need to edit it. If you already have one, send it to me.

I just sent the text, supplied by Zoris, to Risla. The dates listed on the list should be two days later. So the game has started!

Interesting text. I'll get to work on it now.

Haha, he must have missed the part where I basically said I'd be using Sentalian. After all, it's my only properly developed conlang.
