New Album Art and Site Banner

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012
Conlangery has some new stuff.  I wanted to move away from the conlang flag design and come up with something a little more unique for our logo-type stuff, so I solicited some conlanging communities for  translations of “Conlangery” into their conscripts.  The result is new album art and a new site banner. The contibutions I […]

Resources page

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Just a quick update: I’ve added a new resources page, which will be a master listing of all the resources related to my conlanging and conworlding currently available online (in a PDF, picture, or other format) – mostly stuff in my Dropbox public folder.

SOPA Blackout

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012
Conlangery will be “blacked out” on Wed, January 18th in opposition to SOPA (HB3261: Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (SB968: Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011, aka PROTECT IP).  Behind those bureaucratic congressional names are two bills that could seriously damage the workings of the Internet.  As […]

Happy 2012 & switch to Trurian ‘Words of the Day’!

Monday, January 9th, 2012

First a happy new year to anyone who might be (at least occasionally) tracking this blog – the recent silence on my part was mostly due to the holiday season, but also because I’ve grown slightly bored with High Eolic ‘words of the day’. Posts like that will continue, but in another language – Trurian – which was the first language I ever created (around 10 years ago), and has recently undergone a major overhaul.

I’m planning to release the grammar for Trurian 2.0 some time in February. Until then, I might publish a few more grammatical ‘teasers’ (a couple can already be found under the ‘trurian’ tag – see here) – but there will also be Words of the Day (three per week, as with High Eolic in this past year), beginning on 16 January! This is actually quite an exciting exercise for me – the lexicon for Trurian is already quite well developed, with around 3000 entries, but it will be great to both fill the existing gaps, as well as try to explain the nuances of usage of some words in a bit more detail. And hopefully it’s an interesting language in terms of structure as well!

I have installed an add-on that will require you to copy and paste a password to post a comment.  This will hopefully eliminate the comment spam that I have to deal with daily.

We Need Help AGAIN (Another poll and some more)

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011
Over the course of the show we have discovered something … it’s really hard to dig up good conlangs out there.  Not that there aren’t plenty of conlangs out there, but a large number are ill-informed first attempts, incomplete sketches, or simply have no documentation online for us to look at.  So, we have a […]

We Need Some Help

Thursday, October 13th, 2011
A question to all you listeners.  With the holidays coming up, we’ve been considering whether or not to go on a holiday break or something.  So I thought I’d put up a poll to ask people what they would prefer us to do over the holidays (provided we get to them ).  The fact is […]
