hi nihilgorath, nice to meet you i'm jeri :) i see that you're an undergrad pursuing something related to language and linguistics? that's so cool!! being a polyglot is also a far ambition of mine, because i really want to understand how language comes together throughout history—i mean imagine if there was no language barrier and only one universal language?

Report Comment

hey! thanks for accepting :) and i'm glad you think that! it's so fun and interesting to study, i really love it! being a polyglot would be cool as shit, but i kinda lack the discipline to sit down and actually learn a bunch of languages, at least on my own. i definitely want to take some classes at some point though. which languages would you like to learn though?

regarding a universal language, sure it would be interesting to see what effect that would have on the world, but i doubt it would actually do much good. it probably wouldn't even be able to last as a single language for very long, and eventually split up into distinct dialects and then separate into different languages.

(also hey! another linguistics lover, cool!)

thanks for accepting! and yeah, same goes for you! what do you like the most about linguistics??

by Nihilgorath; ; Report

i'm really interested in phonetics and phonotactics, and i do conlanging! i got into conlanging through worldbuilding. i have a tendency to look at social aspects of languages; how does the language affect the society, and how does the society affect the language? stuff like that.

how about you? i saw in your general interests that you're interested in phonetics too. are you studying linguistics? if so, that super cool!!

by ʟᴇxɪs; ; Report

oh my god that's so awesome! conlanging is super cool, but i've never personally gotten much into it. maybe now's the time! what kinds of languages have you come up with? and yeah, how language and society are intertwined is absolutely interesting as well!

yeah, phonetics and phonology stuff in general interests me the most. what got me into it initially was finding out about historical linguistics (blew my mind, lol) and i then just kind of got interested in more and more different things in the field.

and yes am! i just can't not major in it lmao :D btw, what are you studying?

by Nihilgorath; ; Report

conlanging is so fun! i absolutely encourage giving it a go! linguistics is such a varied and detailed field that putting creativity into it can be really time consuming, but in a fun, rabbithole kind of way :D

[bit of an infodump abt my first and most recent languages, whoops! lmao]
i've come up with a ton of languages that i can't even remember, but i think my first one was a logographic one. it was based on a worldbuilding project of mine (which was inspired by various historical and present-day cultures) and decided i wanted to make a language for one of my cultures. it had a big variety of sounds because i had just discovered the international phonetic alphabet and was SO tempted to put all the sounds in. i ended up putting in all the sounds i could pronouce (which was still a lot lmao)
my newest one, mappok, uses the five IPA staved tone letters to make CVC combinations (mostly, its more like CV(C) since CV is an option, but CVC is most common). i made it specifically to give me something i could type, have it not be in the latin alphabet, and be something that is easy for me to learn personally. five vowels, ten consonants, with options to rhoticize vowels or adding "ʊ" after vowels to make a diphthong (can't have both in one syllable). its phoneme set is a bit limited in comparison to english (i tested this by trying out hypothetical english "loanwords" in mappok spelling), but the limitation honestly makes it feel more real and fun to me! i speak japanese, and that sense of limitation in loanword pronunciation is really familiar to me. felt cool to recognize it in a constructed language of my own!

i think it's so cool that you're majoring in linguistics! i enjoy history as well (mostly in historical clothing and culture), but i never got very far into historical linguistics beyond the most surface level stuff. despite that, i always found it so cool!

i'll be going into college next school year, but i'm planning on majoring in music composition, most likely with an emphasis on scoring (as in movie scores and stuff). if that, for some reason, no longer becomes an option, i'll likely go into psychology, advertising, art/design, and i had a knack for coding but never put in the effort to learn, so that might be a later option as well.

by ʟᴇxɪs; ; Report

this is making me want to go actually create a proper conlang lol, thanks for the inspiration!
all of that sounds so cool! is there any way for me to have a look at your projects? like a grammar or dictionary or something, especially for mappok. i am very intrigued and curious! also i just noticed the "˦˧̗̄ ˧˦˨ ˩˦˦˞˩˧˥̀꜏ ˦˥˧̄ ˦˧̗̄ ˧˧˩̄˦˧˨̄̀ ˧˧˥̄˥˨˩˦˧˨̄̀꜊" on your profile! what does it say??? and you also speak japanese? damn, at what level?

and thanks haha. history is interesting though i've never been a huge history buff, but when you bring language into the mix it just becomes so much more interesting. i just love reading up on random etymologies and seeing how the words have changed over time, and just the entire concept of proto-languages and so on. i have recently become very interested in two medieval languages of northern europe, namely old swedish and middle low german. it's legit crazy how much of an impact mlg historically had on the scandinavian languages of the time. i really want to start studying both of these more seriously, and i recently ordered a middle low german grammar which i'm going to try to read through (it's in german...).

ooo, that sounds quite interesting! so you also like doing music stuff? that's awesome! what genre(s)? and yeah, i bet that regardless of how it goes, you'll end up studying something you enjoy!
