I just finished and published chapter 3 of my story! Check it out and let me know what you think so far. I'd love feedback!

I also added the Solar Seal that my friend Ryan designed to the header. It looks awesome!

A week ago, I mentioned I was gonna write a solarpunk story. I have just 2 chapters so farβ€”an environmental scene and a dialog scene. It's not very solarpunk-y yet, but I'd like some feedback on the direction if you want to check it out:

I'ma try to write a solarpunk story. I have the first chapter writtenβ€”trying to set the stage super far in the future after geological and ecological shifts have happened without saying it outright.

I woke up thinking of conlanging today, and maaaan I really want to work on Lexiconga today.

I wanna write something. Why can't I write anything?

I've noticed that I use the phrase "definitely probably" and "probably definitely" a lot and I'm not completely sure where that came from.

I learned about allophones yesterday, which is exactly what my ehw needed to allow flexibility with the vowels!

I also added the concept of word doubling to either emphasize or expand the meaning of a given word. This will allow a tiny vocabulary to have a lot of flexibility! Plus it's fun to say things twice sometimes. :)

Yay! Some guys from my DnD group might learn toki pona with me! I finally have a reason to learn it! haha

Can I get your opinion?

Do you think pairing valid secondary pronunciations of vowels would be helpful or just make things more confusing? i.e. pronounce /Ι™/ as /Γ¦/, /ʊ/ as /u/, and /Ι›/ as /e/.

My bet would be confusing, but maybe allowing for the flexibility would be helpful?

Maybe could add additional meaning/emotion to words so people can choose how they want to express themselves in slightly more specific ways? Then again that would probably definitely be confusing...

In other news, here's my lexiconga for ehw, my simple, air-limited . There are only 25 words so far and not all the grammar is in place, but this is kinda the direction I'm going with it:

I'll still post updates and things I like about what I'm doing with it here, but this is in case anyone ever wants to check out what I've done so far. πŸ˜„

Also, this is helpful too:

Phonemic vs phonetic transcription for writing pronunciation.

A helpful reference for me (and anyone else, too):
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthogra

"Graphemes or sequences of them are sometimes placed between angle brackets, as in ⟨b⟩ or ⟨back⟩. This distinguishes them from phonemic transcription, which is placed between slashes (/b/, /bæk/), and from phonetic transcription, which is placed between square brackets ([b], [bæk])."

I'm gonna try to make a super simple conlang like toki pona but the entire phonology is just the consonants that are easiest for early childhood speech development to use, a collection of mid-mouth vowels, and as many single-syllable words as possible, designed to use the smallest amount of energy to speak words.

Consonants:
p, b, m, n, w, t, d, h, Κ” (unwritten, only for preceding vowels without consonants)
Vowels:
Ι™ <a>, Ιͺ <i>, ʊ <u>, Ι› <e>

Here's a Zirka proverb that applies to me at a deep level, especially right now:

jo shir loch: uch fab luram, chog uch sadof udofus.

The fool says, β€œI need sleep, yet I remain awake.”

I've done it! The Lexiconga Tumblr is now at blog.lexicon.ga like it should have been the whole time!

Damn, I love Brandon Sanderson's books. The audiobooks are especially good, and the stories and characters are spectacularly enjoyable!

Whoa, why haven't I moved my Lexiconga Tumblr to a subdomain of the lexicon.ga domain yet? What am I even doing with my life?
