I have been absent from ZBB for far too long. In any case, I return bearing a gift for the conlanging community: a proposal for an ecumenical (artlanger, auxlanger, engelanger) holiday to celebrate the art and craft of language creation every year:

St. Hildegard's Day

I've written a post at The Conlanging Librarian blog explaining the rationale and how this would work:

http://library.conlang.org/blog/?p=381

Yes, I realize I'm one day late posting to ZBB about this year's, but I'd rather think I'm really early for St. Hilde's Day 2011. :wink:

Well, some people already celebrate "Halfway to St. Patrick's Day", so why not?

Which turns St. Patrick's Day into "Halfway to St. Hildegard's Day" :-)

Sounds like the perfect excuse to get wasted to me.

Only if someone writes drinking songs in Lingua Ignota. Or Esperanto, if Lingua Ignota isn't complete enough.

Actually, there's a good Hilde's Day activity...Write drinking songs..er, uh..poetry...in your own conlang... or each person at the party has to write subsequent verses in their own conlang.

Now there's an idea. I think my first TC for Enzielu is going to be Barnacle Bill. That'll be fun.

Speaking of the Sybil of the Rhine, people might like to know that a film about her life is coming out soon.

Say, has anyone thought of creating a grammar for the Lingua Ignota? Since she simply stuck her words into Latin phrases, that means that there's still plenty of room for a modern conlanger to goof around in.

I haven't looked into it deeply, but I think there isn't much preserved. Probably not enough to whirl up a grammar sufficiently different from Latin/Old High German.

This looks like it might be helpful:

Saint Hildegard's day is coming again in less than 2 weeks!
Who wants some conlanging activity?

I finally thought of something for Saint Hildegard's Day. We could write everything on the board in conlang(s) for one day. We could choose a conlang that everyone would learn, but most probably wouldn't learn it, or wouldn't agree on one conlang. So we could write everything on the board as though it were the Conlang Fluency Thread.
