questions&gt;Date: Wed, 7 Apr 2004 13:01:44 -0400&gt;&gt;Hello!&gt; I have a
few questions that I'm hoping someone can&gt;answer.&gt; Firstly, I'm inventing
a syllabery for my conlang,&gt;and I've run into a couple of problems.
The&gt;romanization of my conlang has capitals, but my&gt;syllabery doesn't.
Does anyone have any suggestions&gt;as to how to form capitals, preferably
without using&gt;bigger letterforms because my letters are already kind&gt;of
big."Well, I have a language with a syllabary still in the design stages
(havinggone through several that I later abandoned as too hard to read, too
hard towrite, or just plain u!
 gly), and I find I get along very well withoutcapitals at all. In fact, I
don't even use them in the romanization. Noteven to start a sentence.""But I'm
odd like that. Mia." Not very odd, IMO, in this case at least. :-) A marker is
easily used to prefix any letter that might otherwise becapitalized. In re
natlangs and e-mail communication etc., this would liberate a great deal of
keyboard space. But would it be faster? I don't know. Regards LEO Leo J. Moser
