Want to present your language or other con-work as a candidate for the ZBB Awards 2010? Post it, or a link to it, here. And if you're particularly impressed by anyone else's work and think it deserves attention, feel free to post links to that here as well.

(NB. Work does not have to be posted in this thread to be eligible for receiving votes - you can vote for anything created by a ZBB member.)

I would like to advertise my efforts to write a reference grammar of my conlang, however, the achievement is questionable because I didn't manage to get the grammar anywhere near complete. Also it's not a novelty strictly speaking, as I've been working on the language itself for 7 years. Neek has undertaken a similar project this year, but he hasn't finished writing his grammar either. Whether his efforts and commitment are more promising than mine I leave up to you.

You could vote me for most serious. I mean, I post here semi-regularly and I don't think I've made a single joke or sarcastic statement.

I do have some conlanging projects but they're not complete so I'll just have to wait until next year if I want a prize for that I guess :)

I hope it doesn't seem too presumptuous to nominate my own South Eresian script for Best Conscript; I've done a lot of work on it and think it's some of my best work ever, and I've only really posted much about it recently (although I did post an unrefined form of it quite a while ago, long enough that I don't remember when).

(I'd also like to think that the conlang is, in general, pretty promising and has a nice phonology, but there are plenty of other 'langs with those. :P)

Oh yeah, I'd like to nominate Astraios for best newcomer, by a pretty long shot.

:o Unexpected endorsement first thing in the morning is better than caffeine!

I second Risla Amahendir's South Eresian for Best Conscript. (And not just because she nominated me for something, because I actually like it a lot.) :D

The only thing of mine I can possibly put forward is the update to my SCA program, which AFAIK nobody has actually used.

Yo, check out my conworld: http://steampulp.wikia.com
I also have maps.

I can't find the quote (I don't want to search through hundreds of pages of Eddywhines), but I nominate Kereb (née Berek)'s quote in the Eddythread where he narrowed down Eddy's responses to a numbered list of 5 or 6, and then when Eddy's responses conformed to his prediction, he basically cabbage-patched across the screen while chanting, "Go Berek, Go Berek!".

I guess the only thing I have to "showcase", really, is my topics...the venting thread, which should be recognized if for nothing else for its epic size, and the award thread in Ephemera which spawned the awards this year.

What the heck ...

The O Yis language was developed this year, and the web pages are now online. It has a lexicon alongside the phonology/grammar stuff, and a native script (no one seems to like the romanization, <shrugs>); translations and more formal interlinears are due soonish.

The Gevey webpages got an overhaul at the start of the year, including a new native script and a rethink of a few grammar points. Plus, a whole new long translation - an adaption of the Babel story to make it a lot more interesting and useful.

(tech note: both the Gevey and O Yis pages make use of the @font-face css tag - you'll need an up-to-date browser to see the pretty scripties in their full glory)

Mapwise, nothing much to report this year - though I did take time out to develop the Vreski Society webpage which has a new map on it.

Most of my creative time this year has been devoted to finalising and publishing my Tome (and developing a warding app to promote it - which was a waste of time). Now that's out of the way I'm well into writing my second book - a very different beast. Progress on the work-in-progress can be checked out on its authonomy page.

... and you think you're having a bad day?

Kal is not having the best of times: his friends have deserted him; the city around him has changed; and the man whose head he lives in knows he is there. And now he has to save the world - though working out who, or what, is threatening the world is proving to be a problem too ...


Enjoy!

My vote for Best Conlang will go to Cathbad's High Eolic (PDF) this year. The grammar is one of the best-written conlang descriptions I've ever seen, and the language is fascinating too.

---

As for my own conlangs, I'd like to point towards Doayâu and Cəssın. Both of these can most suitably (IMO) enter the contest in the categories Best Morphology, Best Lexicon, and/or Best Diachronics.

I'm sure we should have a special award for Octavià, but I don't know what it should be called.

Well, I figured as much, but he seems familiar in another way, like somebody that was banned...

Well, if that weren't the most obvious thing.

I should like to point you in the direction of everything on my website - the material there of which I am most proud being Viksen and Greater Atlian (both PDFs).
