Thanks!
Good luck on your tests.
I look forward to reading your next post.

Since I already logged in, I figured I might as well post a quick update.

My Erasmus (European student exchange program) period in Italy is aproaching its end and I am dying of overheat (figuratively, at least for now). I still have a bunch of exams to pass in these two weeks so it's rather stressful.

Then again, my one way of procrastination is, of course, conlanging, so things get done! (Granted, not the ones I should be doing but hey, ain't nobody got time for that, am I right?)
In an attempt to make a personal language that I won't get fed up with after a week for once, I'm combining my two loves – Latvian and Romance. In other words I'm making a not-very-realistic Baltic languages that, instead of borrowing from Livonian, German and Russian, borrows from Latin and Greek. Thus far, I like what I'm getting but that can change any minute now.

In other conlanging news, some time ago I finally figured out how to join the conlang mailing list, and I must say that having conlanging and linguistics-related discussion come directly to my e-mail is nice. The ongoing discussion about the true meaning of "a priori/a posteriori" is especially insightful.
Btw, can anybody tell me what do they mean when they use the underbar (_) on both sides of a word over there?

That's all great news to me!

I suspect it means "I want to underline this word but between my e-mail software and LISTSERV's software I can't underline an entire word so this is what I'm doing instead."
I'd have to see the actual examples you're talking about to be sure; but that's what I used to mean by it.

I also used to italicize /this way/, but after I started using that to mean /phonemes/ instead of [phones] or <graphemes>, I quit.

Welps, the test went well, I think! We use the ILR scale, except for some reason they make everything harder here so a level 2 is in actuality more like a level 3. I talked with my testers for a good 40 minutes and I'd like to think I only made a slight fool of myself, so I'll be sure to let you know if my confidence is misplaced when the scores come out next week. ^_^ I'll have taken the reading and listening tests by then too.

It has been good to hear recently from both achemel and kiri.
(Congratulations on your test, achemel!)

I'd kind of like to hear from StrangeMagic again, too.
Or anyone else also on this bboard.

Woohoo! I got 3 in listening AND reading, and graduated with honors and the Korean Consul General Award! I feel so accomplished, haha. And now I'm on vacation, so I'll be sure to put up something conlangery, FINALLY. How is everyone else?

I am doing well and so is my daughter.
I'm trying to get ready for baryiatric surgery.
I'm going slower than I would have to because I keep forgetting to do things.
But any progress is great!

I'm guessing it's you! Right?

I also would like to know what language that was.
Google Translate guesses it's Swahili, but can't translate a word of it into English, so I'm guessing it isn't.

To me it looks kind of like Maori; and/or kind of like Arabic; but I figure it's probably Hawaiian?

But anyway here are the languages Google Translate can translate at least two of those words out of.

(Hawaiian isn't one of Google Translate's languages. Maori is, but Google Translate can't translate more than one of those words, assuming they're in Maori. Note that neither Swahili nor Arabic are in the list below, either.)

Afrikaans? Probably not.
Azerbaijani? Probably not.
Haitian Creole? Best candidate so far, but still, probably not.
Hmong? Probably not.
Somali? As good a candidate as Haitian Creole; but still, probably not.
Swedish? Probably not. (For some reason Swedish is a better candidate than other Scandinavian languages.)
Turkish? Even better than Haitian Creole or Somali; but still not good enough to be other than improbable.
Zulu? I guess probably not. Maybe as good as Haitian Creole or Somali, but not as good as Turkish.

I don't see why Google Translate guessed Swahili instead of Turkish.

Is it one of your conlangs? Or maybe someone else's conlang?

The syllable-structure looks a little too complex for it to be Hawaiian, IME and IIANM.

Re hos tal tem-hodos del elin, kofir el hala sam llakib al-ddamachel.

While I wish I could understand any of those, it is in fact my language ddamachel.

Well, I’m doing pretty well. I mean, I’ve never been to Hawaii before! It’s very exciting. I had a sponsor who took me all around the island and got me all settled in. Now that I have some time, I thought whenever I post here I can do it in a conlang as well.

Good ideas.

Didn't you join CBB since the last time I posted here?

Has it been nearly two weeks since the last post anyone made?
I'll try to come up with something to post.
(I already know what to post about.)

미안합니다. 제가 자주 여기에 와서 어떤 코멘트가 있는지 없는지 확인하지만 지금 CBB에도 소속하기 때문에 둘 사이트에선 별로 아무 활동도 안 하는 편입니다. 근데 하와이는 최고다.

Sorry. I come here often to see if there are any comments or not but since I belong to CBB as well now I'm not really doing much of anything on either site. Hawaii is awesome though.

Well, hi, Achemel. I kind of wish I could read Korean.
I think you just said the same thing in Korean and in English?
How is it that you can write Korean?

Yes, they're the same thing. I was studying it for the past year and a half. I have to brush up on Japanese again though - it's been all muddled up by Korean.

It's been 30 days since you posted that, and I'm just now reading it. Embarassed
Good to hear from you. Tell us more?


BTW LingoDingo is also active once again.

Wow, it has? Time flies. I work nights now so the past couple weeks have been a blur of semi-daylight and coffee. Not much to say about language, except that Chinese is next on my list and German will probably be after that as my housemates speak those. Enthusiasm is low and I've lost 7 pounds trying to adjust to my new schedule though, so we'll see how that goes. BUT, I'll try some conlanging this weekend - expect at least one resurrected thread by Monday!

I can tell you're young, because losing 7 pounds correlates with lowered energy for you rather than higher energy as it would for me. (Of course I also had more than a few other hints!)
