Re: WoCoLaMo W Biggs <[log in to unmask]> 2014-10-23 23:14
This sounds like a lot of fun. LoCoWriMo does, too. I think January would work very well.
Re: WoCoLaMo kechpaja <[log in to unmask]> 2014-10-23 22:44
There's also LoCoWriMo (http://www.frathwiki.com/LoCoWriMo), which is basically NaNoWriMo done in one's own conlang (usually held in July). Participants would set what they considered a realistic goal for themselves at the beginning of the month, expressed in some unit of length (word count doesn't work for every language), and then try to write a story that was at least that long in their (or sometimes another) conlang.
I did LoCoWriMo once; I don't think the story ever made it onto the internet though. I've also largely abandoned the language that I wrote it in at this point, so I doubt I would be able to read it.
Re: Really good examples of conlangs online? Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2014-03-10 22:52
As Jeffrey Brown says: "I suppose, if one gets to a point that one can say, or translate, anything to the conlang, than that would constitute completeness." Aside from a physics or chemistry text, I think I could translate _almost_ anything into the language. And I did write a several-thousand-word story for LoCoWriMo a few years back (it's on the website too, in bilingual version).
That can't be said of my other two languages, Gwr and Prevli. But whenever (or if) another LoCoWriMo rolls around, I have some ideas for a story in Gwr.
OT (a little): An anachronism discovered Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2013-11-08 14:06
Oh dear-- in my Locowrimo story  a  couple years back, I had a youngish Terran making first contact with the Kash. As he mentions in the story, a nuclear war had occurred on Earth about 300 years before, and the Aliens arrived about 50 years later to help rescue the situation. Assuming that this war was between USSR and USA around 1980s and Aliens reached earth in ~2030 (watch for it!!!) , that means that the story is taking place sometime in the 2300s AD or so (I think it ought to be later, but....) 2300s Terran would be ~1060s Cindu

=======================================
As good as any other system, I suppose.... I had a similar problem in my Locowrimo story a few years back-- how to distinguish telepathic "talk" from spoken? Italicizing the telepathy would have meant long stretches of italics, not a Good Thing IMO, so I settled on guillemets («...») for that, regular "..." quotes for spoken. (Punctuation marks are sorely lacking in my Kash font; I don't know how they'd be distinguished in native script.)
Re: OT: How many books do you read a year? Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2012-12-11 15:27
Poetry too, though again, older stuff. Neruda, H.Crane, Millay. Right now I'm more concerned with finishing/polishing/collecting my own poetry of the past 60 years, with the goal of self-publishing. The only fiction I've written lately was the LoCoWriMo story in Kash/English in 2009 (2010?). My main writing activity is in INdonesian linguistics, so specialized that only a handful of people in the world are interested. As an academic, I did not publish, but perished....

Thanks for the compliment! Oddly, it was sort-of written in both langs. simultaneously, but mostly in Kash. The thing is, the story had been developing in my imagination/fantasy for a long time, so I knew where it was going, what the events were etc. and didn't have to stop to think "what happens next?" If I'd had to plot it out first, or as I went along, make an outline etc. it wouldn't have come out as fast as it did (it actually took a bit less than the month allotted). Any future stories/writing will have to be done that "old-fashioned way", as there's nothing else roiling around in my fantasies at the moment :-(((( That's why I didn't/couldn't take part in the 2010 Locowrimo :-(((

Never heard of her, but it sounds very interesting. Will have to check it out. Of course, the ideal human/alien communication would be telepathy, as I postulate for the Kash.......Which reminds me: (tooting own horn...) I must post, somewhere, last year's LoCoWriMo story, which I've decided has its definitely good moments, and IMNSHO at least one amusing bit.

Re: CHAT: One Month, One Conlang project Lee <[log in to unmask]> 2010-08-09 23:59
I didn't get nearly as far with the conlang I started from scratch as part of LoCoWriMo. I'm also snagging bits of Na'vi, Greek, and others. Currently about a couple dozen in all, though I'm about to cull the herd considerably.
Re: Proto/Modern Language Documentation Lee <[log in to unmask]> 2010-07-22 11:11
No reason why they shouldn't! The conlang I'm cobbling together as I write my LoCoWriMo* story is borrowing** from four other conlangs***. The extent of the borrowing remains to be seen, though I think I will import a few words from each as a built-in acknowledgment to each.

This is really weird. I tried the poem again (with title), it still came out Margaret Atwood. Then I tried various paras. from the LoCoWriMo story, and got different authors for each one (I couldn't remember which one I'd used originally, but no D. F. Wallace this time))-- Arthur C. Clarke (that one mentioned "starship"), Kurt Vonnegut, J.K.Rowling (mentioned "palace"?), V.Nabokov, Dan Brown !!! and Stephen King (aargh), among others. Mostly in good company :-)))
Re: OT: a stupidly addictive English style-analyzer Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2010-07-17 13:42
A para. from last year's LoCoWriMo story, and a para. from a technical article about the Lañ-lañ people of Cindu, both came back David Foster Wallace. I've never read him.

Re: Terminology Question (Comparative/Superlative) Mechthild Czapp <[log in to unmask]> 2010-05-13 00:36
For example for glossing. Having 14 comparatives in a grammar file is managable. In a gloss, the difference between alna and alsina might be important enough to be marked. So for my LoCoWriMo story, I had to find terms to describe them and abbreviations for the gloss. Thus, I created strange constructions like 2 Equitives (EQU1 and EQU2), comparatives, augmented comparatives, negative comparatives and so-called relative ones, as well as many imaginable combinations thereof. Also Superlatives for exactly these things. It does beat having CMP12 in the glossed text.

Of course. Kash telephone is celiçit 'electric+speak', computer is celipin, colloq. cipin 'electric-think'; not too original but they work.
There are several strategies in Kash besides compounding-- modification of the base for related meanings (thus tihas 'glimpse', tikas 'see' and tingas 'look at, examine' are all related through the velar series-- /h k ng/-- and that works for the other series as well; it does require a little knowledge of the proto-language. Another way, rarely used, is dialect borrowing-- I could create *tiyas /tias/ '....?' from a dialect that lost medial /k/. Another way is borrowing from Gwr, especially for tech. and scientific terms. Finally of course, coin a new word. I had to resort to all these when writing my LoCoWriMo story (IIRC about 500+ new words in a 10,000word story).

Does anyone want to put up conscript-images of their LoCoWriMo story
so large and numerous that FrathWiki wouldn't be suitable for hosting
them? I suppose if I were to put up high-resolution scans of all 60
pages (so far) of my LoCoWriMo story it would be better to put them at
pics.conlang.org or a new locowrimo.conlang.org than FrathWiki, but
I'm disinclined to spend all the necessary time scanning &
three pages of the handwritten first draft as a public record of the
LoCoWriMo-ness of it.

Re: diglossia/colloquialisms (was: Modern Greek question) Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2009-12-10 14:09
And another is overuse of the -ni suffix; it's basically 3d pers. possessive, but also can be used (1) to make a noun definite, (2) form nominals from verbs/adjectives, (3) along with 1st and 2nd pers.suffixes, to make conjugated forms of common verbs--e,g, sañ kotami (thus say-my) 'I said so ~that's what I said'. These are acceptable, just not to excess ;-) I caught myself overusing it in the LoCoWriMo story....
Re: pronoun systems Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2009-12-06 02:31
I downloaded the table of correlatives from Wikipedia a while back, but by then it was too late for Kash, as I'd already made most of them. But they're very disorganized and one of the aspects of the language that displeases me most (as I discovered in the course of LoCoWriMo :-( ) The same goes for my other languages :-((((
Re: Prepositional phrases as attributes (was: Re: Non-3rd-person nominal agreement?) Roger Mills <[log in to unmask]> 2009-11-24 16:59
Theoretcially, in Kash, it should be possible to have either N + PP, or to put the PP in a rel. clause beginning with _re_ ('which, that' etc.). Looking through my recent LoCoWriMo story, I find I've done both-- it depends on the preposition.
