I found this page today because of a Wikipedia link. Unfortunately I'm a German and my English isn't the best. So, do you know 'bout a similar german community. I saw, only one page on this wiki is in German ...
What's on your mind?
Good Luck with the new conlang! ;)
In þer Bradung þisser Spræke, þarf scie Worde. Hwilce Worde willeþ ȝe bruken?
In the expansion of this language, it needs words. Which words do you want to use?
I want to practice my language with someone and would like suggestions. If my language is bad that's because I'm only 13 :)
I've picked up my old copy of EU3, blown the dust of and am reliving some of the fun of the old game [though a thousand Curses on England's endless stack of fleets]. I am currently playing a Brittany and have found myself compulsively naming provinces, cities, fleets & armies with my rudimentary knowledge of Breton.
Initially this was little trouble, Ulster was Bro-Ulad, Anjou was returned to rightful its rightful Breton as Anjev and so on. However once I got to colonies, I started to hit a speed bump; some of them was a matter of approximating the native name in Breton, but alternate history led to alternate discoveries and I soon found myself deriving names for colonies after names of rulers, what they produced and etc, etc. Even asking myself if items like Coffee and Sugar would still have the same names or if this history might have had a name if another culture stumbled onto it first.
So, I soon realized I was doing pretty much exactly what I do while deriving/creating words for a conlang even if all the cultures here were similar. Theoretically, the modern languages of these very real countries would be [at least somewhat] different had history swerved off course.
And so my question to you folks is; Do you ever use your Conlang in 4e/Empire Building Game? Either in a Space Exploration/Generic World Game or even, as I mentioned, in long term Historic games where you are able to rename conquered/colonized territories?
If not, would you consider trying it now?
So I thought I'd bring some life to this close-to-dead forum, and there was this thing I was wondering, which I thought was the ideal opportunity to start a thread. c:
My question(s): does any of you have a wiki in (this means not about, but actually written completely in) their constructed language? Used to? Maybe considering on making one? Or not before I posted this thread? >3<"
If the answer is yes, another couple of questions: what were the difficulties you encountered while doing so? Would you advise people to do it or would you say it's something too bothersome to even try and you regret doing it? Tips and tricks for people who are planning on creating one?
As for me,
I created a wiki in my conlanguage already (w:c:hvec), even though it has no content pages yet. I'm currently translating as many of the Special:AllMessages as I can so that my wiki will appear to outsiders entirely in my conlang.
Difficulties I've encountered so far:
- Pywiki doesn't recognize my wiki as member of the rest of the family (w:c:hvetshran)
- It took me a lot of mailing back and forth to Staff to have them link my wiki as HV:
- When Staff did link it, I found out I had pages at HV: that now redirected to my conwiki >3<
- The Special:AllMessages are over 5,000 messages I need to translate... most of which contain technical terminology my language would not have.
Anything of this sound familiar?
