Hemicomputer suggested (in a PM) that this would be a good transcription challenge.

Here's a Dorothy Parker quote that includes a word most writers of most natscripts would have "censored" during most of history.

At the end of her honeymoon her editor asked her why her column was late. She said
"I had a wedding and then I was on my honeymoon. I've just been too ----ing busy. And vice-versa."
Now, in English, that's been written as:
"I've been too ----ing busy and vice-versa" (no hint what the missing part is)
and as
"I've been too f---ing busy and vice-versa" (the missing part begins with an <f>, but no hint how long it was)
and as
"I've been too f***ing busy and vice-versa" (the missing part begins with an <f> and is four letters long).

If your conpeople wrote this in your conscript, how would they, in your conculture, show the "f"-word?

MUAHAHAHAHHA! Twisted Evil

About time someone does something like this. Klli does it in loads of different ways. You can either put a strike through what ever curse word that's there or you could use the *'s but they look different in Klli writing.

I'd show you all of the ways but since my scanner hasn't been hooked up yet I can't atm. In the Romanization of Klli you just do it like the usual English ways.

Yuw ima zuko tasil! Twisted Evil

↑ Sorry can't tell you what that means......you don't wanna know. Hehehehe!

Tell us! Please!
Tasil means "you" I believe, yes? That's all I can gather from the other Klli I've seen.

In Holxws, a censored curse is written with the first letter, then two of the half stop symbol, then the last letter. So the cuss word țhle would be written ț,,l.

Maybe later I'll write it in the script.

I'm pretty sure we'd like to see.
At any rate, I'd like to see.

Tasil means you.

As for what it means......it's an example of a Klli insult that if I were to tell you in English would simply mean "Go to hell" or "You can go to hell" hense "tasil"

It was posted as an example.

And then you could write it like this:

Yuw ima z*ko tasil

And I would show you in the script but you know the story.

Another way of writing it is like this:

Tasil yuw ima zuko.

Tasil yuw ima z*ko.

↑ Is another example of blocking out curse words.

MEMIU KURIMASU!!!!

Curse words would be written like this:

Vers would be written as v-r nasilyo as n-s-l--.

The 2nd, 4th, and everything after the 5th are blanked out.

Well in Gwakkian you could say Śltst (meaning you are not in favour of Tst) or bfrtk Tst (meaning that you are an enemy of Tst). Those would be very heavy curses, but would be considered acceptable to write, as it is important for it to be recognized when someone is worthy of that designation. It is, however, highly insulting.

I guess the question here is what is Tst?

mr.toast2, on another thread, wrote:
...the people of Gwk and Gwk ntrn eat lots of Toast (Tst), but unlike us, they do not go through the stage of "bread" first. As traditionally, and to this day, gwakkians have not had ways of preserving food, they were not able to make grain-based food products that were soft and more perishable. Instead, they baked their dough directly into toast. Traditional Tst is made from one of several grains (depending on which one(s) are native to the area) and numerous other special ingredients, many of which are sacred in Gwakkian society and theism. Tst is a sacred food, and is considered to be descended directly from the creationary deities, passed down through the generations by word of mouth.

Actually, I was referring to Tst as the figurative "being" (for lack of a better word) viewed as sacred by Gwakkians. It would of course be more proper to say "wa", but as this is more of a colloquial insult, Tst would be more common, so as to more broadly encompass the greater concept of Tst itself.
