I've seen a few posts here about software which does sound changes, and it strikes me that it would be useful to incorporate an SCA into a larger program which manages vocabulary in a more general way. Such a program could also do useful things with conjugation and declension, semantic categories, loanwords, and so on, and let you know when the reflexes of words don't agree with the output from the sound-changes. So, here's a thread for y'all to say what your ideal program would do. Maybe some of the ZBB's more capable programmers could even get together and try to write it :-)

has been attempted. has not been attempted successfully. I plant to learn to program somewhen before I die, and It'll probably be one of the projects of such an endeavour

Programmers are like economists. Put 5 in a room with a problem and they'll come up with 7 opinions on how to solve it.

I was actually working on a web app to do this—the idea was that it'd be a one-stop shop for universe construction, with dictionaries existing as special pages in a wiki-like interface, as well as articles and checklists for helping novices get started. Applying sound changes would automatically create a new searchable, structured dictionary for you that you could then go in and edit. There would also be group access controls and MediaWiki-like discussion pages, so you could collaborate with others.

Given the plethora of conworld and conlang wikis already out there, though, it didn't seem like there was much demand, so we never got around to any of the SCA or checklist stuff. An AJAX-based where people could bring their conworlds' locations to life was also completed, but the inherent dead-weight-to-actively-used-areas ratio made it somewhat unappealing to maintain. The idea that it would mostly end up full of abandoned stubs and fleeting thoughts was also somewhat discouraging.

Other than the MUCK, the parts that were written are still in use, but with registration disabled. The shows off the idea; here's an example of . Since the LCK and WCK already cover a lot of ground, the checklist idea turned into an irregular with some advice for building plausible hard sf worlds.

But that being said, we never actually asked if there was demand for any of this stuff; it just seemed unnecessary with how well-developed other conlang wikis are. How much demand is there?

Wasn't there recently a thread on this in C&C?

Oh wait, yes: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=42066

No, that isn't what he's saying. It started in July, it's now November. That is a fair amount of time ago however you look at it.

Would be fun to do one in brainfuck. Would be more fun to saw off both legs without painkillers.

Well of course it is, just like any other Turing tarpit. It's just a wildly bad idea.

I'd actually like to get my hands on JCD's code from the other thread, so I can translate it into Octavia and add it to the CM site. That should fulfil most user needs.

Obviously, some people have too much free time on their hands!
