Hi all... I've decided to return to the list after several months of nomail, during which I relocated to the other side of the continent, found a new job, acquired new interests, and, guess what ... crossed paths with a fellow conlanger at an unexpected place. (Isn't it a small world?) During my absence, in which I discovered huge resources of free time not spent checking CONLANG mails, ;-) I acquired an acute interest in speculating on a world with 4 spatial dimensions (not 3 spatial + 1 time like most would think when you say "4D"). While browsing online for more information on this topic, I chanced upon a wonderful website devoted to it, written by none other than Garrett Jones, whom I believe is (or was) on the list. Anyway, to make this not-so-ontopic post short, I think the Ferochromon, the world of the EbisÚdi, has just acquired a whole new dimension... literally!! :-) I shall re-work my con-world to be a 4D universe (not that it wasn't already in its previous incarnation, but not the part which the EbisÚdi inhabit), and rebuild EbisÚdian from scratch to go with it. Or perhaps I should discard the current conlang and start from scratch. I have unfortunately lost interest in many of the little details I integrated into EbisÚdian, and I think I'd rather let it remain as it is, and start a new independent project. What think ye of this idea? What kind of terms might a language spoken in a 4D world have, which we do not have? At least one curious mind thirsts to know. :-) Now I've also learned from browsing the list archives of the unfortunate departure of some valued conlang members... they have my condolences. Consider this then my (admittedly rather poor) ObConlang attempt to inject more conlang-related discussion into the list to counterbalance the inevitable trend toward the off-topic. T -- There's light at the end of the tunnel. It's the oncoming train.
