  • Late to 2020: Reviewing 2019

    I’m not terribly proud of myself for falling behind in December, but I also worked much less on my writing and my conlang. For the first time in a long while, I had a huge boost in motivation to work on GURPS stuff. So, that’s what I did, but I didn’t post about anything because […]

  • New greyfolk language typeface, syllable blocks, numerals

    After working on other pieces of the greyfolk language for so long, I am genuinely proud to present the new typeface: klepalka (it’s in a .zip file since .ttf files aren’t normally allowed by WordPress). The name is just a transliteration of the work ‘greyfolk’ into the greyfolk language. Instead of just containing a few […]

  • End of August Greyfolk language report

    Okay, so I honestly forgot about August 31st when I thought of the title and said that I would post this “tomorrow”. Use your imagination. There are a few posts that I can definitely still make about conlanging—I just haven’t. I’ve had six-ish strong days of work this month, but a lot of my conlanging […]

  • Creating the new 7HR alphabet

    It’s like a [su_tooltip style=”dark” position=”north” content=”This is a link to ‘Seven-segment display’ on Wikipedia“]seven-segment display[/su_tooltip]. But horizontal, so it’s on its side. But rotated, so it’s normal again. That’s what 7HR means—it’s 7-segment display horizontal rotated. So, the previous alphabet would be called 14N—it’s 14-segment display neutral. Seven segments is a lot less than […]

  • New «h» glyph (and the runners-up)

    The new «h» glyph was decided in the minutes before I saw Flor de Toloache—an all-female mariachi—about a month and a half ago. I had been going back and forth and back and forth for a few days, but, somehow, making the decision away from my office made it just a little bit easier. h […]

  • New alphabet, places of articulation, and manners of articulation

    I just got finished finally typing up ‘New «h» glyph (and the runners-up)’ when I realized that a lot of what went into the design would be lost if I didn’t talk about [su_tooltip style=”dark” position=”north” content=”This is a link to ‘Place of articulation’ on Wikipedia“]place of articulation[/su_tooltip] and [su_tooltip style=”dark” position=”north” content=”This is a […]

  • Another two weeks later

    Things have been going well for the Greyfolk language and things have been going well for me. You’re probably here for the Greyfolk language, but let’s start with me. Since my last update, my girlfriend has graduated from her dual master’s program at IU. That’s fun! I haven’t done anything too amazing like that, but […]

  • Post-presentation update

    Two weeks later / In the living room stressin’ from “Helpless” from Hamilton the musical. Has it really been two weeks since my last update? But so much has happened since then! One such thing is that I was invited back by one of my professors to give a guest lecture on conlanging as well […]

  • Greyfolk Font Update 3: Man, the Man Is Non-Stop!

    Forget my previous post and even the one before it because here’s another update! I’ve been working on this font day and night [su_tooltip style=”dark” position=”north” content=”This is a link to Non-Stop from Hamilton on YouTube“]like I’m running out of time[/su_tooltip]. It happened after I woke up this morning after my update late last night. […]

  • So, I’ve already updated the font for Greyfolk

    It’s actually already reflected in my previous post. After I published that post, I realized that I was seeing some inconsistencies across my phone, my computer, and my girlfriend’s laptop. The font looked much sharper on my phone and on my girlfriend’s laptop while appearing fuzzy on my monitor. “How can that be?” I wondered. […]
