In salthan, "conlangy" could be done a few ways, and I couldn't decide which one was best, so here'a all 3.

No matter what I do, it's biting off the begining of the first one, at least on my end. I'm going to try again later.

Dikaɘʃa in each is "welcome", and Ul- prefix is "inside of"

Dikaɘʃa ulkonlanȝali
(konlanȝali "Konlangee" transposed)

Dikaɘʃa ulsɘkdashaΘɘnai
sɘkdas-haΘɘ-nai
To build/put two things together-[word-PL] - "To build words" or "to build language"

Dikaɘʃa ultʃaΘoshaΘɘnai
tʃaΘos-haΘɘn-ai
"to mold/from-word-PL - "To mold words" or "to mold language"

you know... that's a capital theta you've got there. And why on earth are you using yogh?


Is there a difference in IPA between capital and lower case? The source I use just says "theta" (though it does look funny vbeing in the middle,if that's what you mean. I can fix it later)
yogh is, I had thought though like J in Jam, at least according to this flash IPA site I use )

ʤ is the J in jam, which isn't even in that chart. ʒ is the s in the middle of vision, which only looks somewhat like yogh, it's actually called ezh. (the two were apparently the same letter in early forms of Unicode, though, which might be the cause of the confusion...) There are no true uppercase letters in IPA, only small uppercase looking letters like ɴ or ʟ or others.

You can't read that, right? Yes, it says that.

Now the only question left is, what is the difference between <e> and <ɘ>, since you only seem to use <ɘ>?

You can hear the difference here http://www.yorku.ca/earmstro/ipa/vowels.html
(It's front close-mid vs. central close-mid)

Also, I realized it's supposed to be "conlangery", not "conlangy", but that's the one I need to fix anyway.

Yeah, but if you only have [ɘ] for /e/ (it seems?), why not use <e>, as that's less awkward to type?

What he wrote was suposed to be IPA so < > don't come into the picture because he was using [ ].

This is why I dislike IPA, so many symbol look the same that it confuses some people (e.g. his use of yogh instead of ezh). Also diacritics are tiny and difficult to tell apart or even notice on the screen. And lets face it @ is a lot easier to type than ɘ. Some people might consider IPA prettier but form over function is generally not a good philosophy when utility is key.

Personally I can tell the IPA symbols apart without any difficulty at all, and diacritics are only a problem when they're stacked in the same place which usually doesn't happen.

Mkay, I was assuming he went for the mixed Latin/IPA orthography like in some African languages, where there are e.g. ɛ and ɔ.
