  • Update on the greyfolk conlang

    It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Because, uh, this website is supposed to be for my conlang first and foremost. (Oops.) I’ve been doing a good amount of thinking after Pandunia moved away from using vowel endings to designate word class, and I think I’m going to drop using vowels to show word […]

  • End of September report

    Life still slowly goes on, even with that disaster of a presidential debate last night. I don’t even have to get political to say that I got really tired really fast of watching the impeached president act like a petulant child. It doesn’t matter whose side I’m on (which is a dumb way of putting […]

  • Reworked monosyllabic roots for greyfolk language

    The monosyllabic roots have changed since when I first introduced them. After working on disyllabic roots, my feelings about my original monosyllabic roots changed a bit, and I wanted to make them fit my Hamming distance philosophy better.

  • 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 […]
