Ok, so i've re-uploaded my conlang info to the files section of the yahoo
groups conlang site. I had no problem viewing it with adobe acrobat 5.1 on
either of my computers, so try to use the latest version of adobe acrobat.
i wrote the file to be compatible with versions 4 and up. Any comments
would be appreciated. I expect the real fun in discussion of my conlang
will come when I've got a bit of the grammar formed. I'm kicking a lot of
things about in my head, but right now i'm just taking in new knowledge; i
haven't written any grammar things down. i do know that there probably
won't be gender distinctions in nouns, though they may fall into only a few
categories of forms. i would also like the words to form the plurals with
vowel and/or non-final consonant changes (where applicable).
How many words do you all think I should have before I start to write
grammar, or should it matter at all?
I'm interested in etymological studies. Is there anywhere where you can
find out how words relate to each other? I know that i could make a list
and go from there, but that would be time consuming. I'm not totally
opposed to it, however, and should it come making my own list, I wouldn't
be too discouraged.
So, let me know what you can.
