how would one go about making up dialects? i know that dialects are
phonetic variations (?). Would one just modify the sounds a little bit, or
is there more to a dialect than that? i think that constructing some sort
of world and history of the world would be good for giving a backbone to a
conlang. it doesn't even have to be fantasy. richard kennaway's page has
many useful links. what do you think about constructing worlds?
