aphoticchaos asked: Thats awesome!! I too have been obsessed for some while now... It all started when I started learning Korean on my own at age 14, I'm now fluent in English, Korean and Japanese, and proficient in Russian and Polish, as well as I know some Mongolian, French, Spanish and Mandarin. What 6 languages did you take?? Thanx btw :) Your conlangs look cool too!! If you want to collaborate or something perhaps we should exchange emails? (I'm still a bit new to tumblr) And thnx! I found the conlang group~!!
Awesome! I’ve taken Spanish, French, Latin, German, Japanese, and Chinese (Mandarin). I’ve studied quite a few more outside of school, but more for grammar than conversational skills.
Sure! I hope you like the group! I don’t talk much there but there are so many good ideas floating around..
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, just send me an email!
I am Chaos; whoever shall look into my lifeless eyes, whoever shall hear my chilling voice, whoever shall touch my ice-cold skin, loses their mind and dies a most painful death full of regret, yearning to gasp one last breath before being overwhelmed by the frigid darkness of death and joining the inhabitants of the underworld for an eternity.
Apart from that, I enjoy conlanging, linguistics, mathematics, writing, and learning other languages. This blog will be mostly about my conlanging hobby, as well as experimenting with mathematics and linguistics and the creation of different cultures and ways of thought in the fictional universes and worlds I create. I will also be maintaining mirror blogs in Korean, Japanese, Russian, and Polish. Not only will this allow me to practice my other languages, but it will allow me to hopefully reach a larger audience. My dream is to one day be payed for professional conlanging and to be able to write about my own worlds and their languages.
Neat! I’ve taken 6 languages in school, but I’m fluent in only English. I want to be able to be a pro conlanger as well, but the only way that’d probably happen for me is if I write the book as well…
aphoticchaos asked: Hi!!! I LOVE conlanging and linguistics with a passion and have created lots of my own as well as universes and cultures for lots of them. I've always dreamt of finding someone who shares this interest and I can talk to!! (Sorry I'M REALLY EXCITED) You see, no one else in my school knows anything about this and is not interested at all, trying to teach them one of my conlangs is like teaching a dog math lol. I also saw your post about working on a conlang together, OMG YES THAT WOULD BE AMAZING!
I’ve been obsessed since I was 15 :) I collect language and linguistics books - including PDFs, I have over 500.
That would be really cool. Your conlangs look amazing, it would be awesome to work with you on something like that!
(Also, if you want to talk about conlanging, you should check out the conlangs group on Facebook. It’s the only reason I’m still on Facebook, it’s great and there are a lot of people. There are also conworld and con-scripts groups, I’m sure they’d like to see your stuff!)
Would anyone be willing to work on creating a language with me to use when corresponding with each other?
I kind of already have roughly 12, but that does sound like a lot of fun…
(someday i will have a conlang that can at least keep the metric of songs when i translate them. adzamasi is not that language.)
Same with Treyll, the words are often at least 3 syllables and then there are necessary suffixes…. I think I may only have 2 conlangs (out of ~12) that I can actually do song lyrics in at all..
