Hey, I am Vonlia. I've been lurking for awhile, but haven't posted yet.
And here I go. I am right handed, straight, no beard, and American.
I'm also male, 14 years old, and from the deep south. I haven't done
much except playing with the idea ov conlanging, which I discovered
after I learned of Tolkien's languages, then I learned a bit about
Lojban, Esperanto, and now I'm here. And I'm trying fairly hard to keep
up with all this, but an e-mail every 10 seconds is tough.
And to make this seem like a meaningful post, I shall ask: How do you
go about learning that thing that represents sounds in // or  or other
various things? I've looked a bit and found some sort of thing that
seemed to represent sounds, but did it with untypables.
I also took a stab at creating a language a good while ago, and had an
interesting idea of adding numbers to the end of just about everything,
with a suffix before the number to tell what it means. Like:
"Cat[part of speech] brown[adjective] eat[part of speech
fish[part of speech]"
All numbers go from 1-5.
So, cat would be the first part of speech (which probably isn't the
right term...), the 5 ones being subject, direct object, indirect
object, preposition, and verb.
Brown is an adjective (modifying what's behind it), the 4 meaning it
gets 4 stars out of 5 on its brownness. On a brownness scale of 1-5, it
gets a 4.
Eat is the verb, fish is the direct object.
That's about as far as I got, and I even manage to have prepositions,
but no way to have an object of a preposition. I'm good.
Also, is there perhapse an IRC channel where conlanging goes on?
Jesus changed your life. Save (Yes/No)?
