New languages

Questions or discussions about Almea or Verduria-- also the Incatena. Also good for postings in Almean languages.

New languages

Post by Frislander »

Now I know you must have a good deal planned, Zompist, what with your writing and all, but when do you think we can expect to see new language material coming out, for instance when might we get to see a page on Virtual Verduria devoted to Nanese, or perhaps Obenzayet or Luxiajia?

I know it's seemed like Almea hasn't gotten a lot of love lately, but I just put up a new page on Lé spirituality.

Which isn't a new language, I know. :? I've been swamped by client work lately, so new Almean languages have been low priority.

All the languages you mention have at least some work done on them, so I should definitely finish them some time...

Great work!
Minor criticism:
It is rare and not as easy to do as the reverse, but women can rape men.
"There also the important episode of the Men’s Empire." needs a verb.

I've long been intrigued by the name of Čia-Ša language family. It's a sub-group of Eastern, yet the names are so brief and don't look at all Eastern to me. I expect then, that something pretty radical is going on there and would like to know more. Are there any plans to develop a Čia-Ša language in the near future?

According to his site (http://www.zompist.com/ethno.htm), he already has a wordlist for Lufaša, a Ša language.

That list appears to be rather out of date, though, because we now have grammar pages for Old-Skourene, Munkhashi, Dhekhnami, Uytain, Le.

Personally if there's a new Eastern language I'd like to see, it's probably Sarroc. I like the idea of it being close to Verdurian but also separate from it...

Seconded!

Since I knew of Sarroc, I've wanted a taste. So third me on that.

Heh, one thing that's tempting about Sarroc is that the lexicon is mostly done. Grammar is barely started though.

That's not temptation, that's opportunity right there.
