As you see, now I issue reviews on Fridays.
Does anybody read them, at all?
REVIEW #9 Year 2004, the week from Feb 27 to Mar 04, GMT+02.
NOTE: The names of [persons] while mentioned first, are given in
square brackets, those of ~conlangs~ -- in tildes.
- 4 msg: how shall I read "Direach Ghlinn Eitidh"?
East Asian Conlangs: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eastasianconlangs
- 1 msg: CHAT: More brain power needed for Mandarin than English.
- 9 msg: A Carraxan recipe from [Adam Walker]: Azeras cun caxa (all
in ~Carrajena~). Try to fuigure it out! And still it became a
translation exercise: [Christian Thalmann] translated it into
Concultural chat: Isidorian Rite
West Asian Conlangs: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/westasianconlangs
- 16 msg. [Theophilus Habarakhe] asked for comments on Muslim place
names in America and Australasia for his "FI" conworld. As a result,
ppl started discussing various related things:
- what Muslim states were Shi`i in OTL ("our timeline")?
- lexical differences between various Arabic dialects;
- Islamic Spain, and [Yitzik]'s ~Ajami~ - a conlang for an ATL
("alternative timeline") where Iberian Peninsula had no
Reconquista - a kind of Mozarabic survived and flourishing till
nowadays; Latin translit scheme for Ajami;
- religion in Europe in Ajami TL;
- types of Arabic personal names.
I see a steady trend for losing activity. I was expecting that the
main List limits would provoke burst of activity in the workshops.
Does conlanging become tedious?
Anyway, that's all for now,
Peace and grace upon you all,
-- Isaac Penzev (aka Yitzik)
