Re: Before I go too far...

I'd go with jan Loje, in the spirt of discarding too much information, which is what a toki pona phrase typically does.

Re: Crazy people want to change English

The point? To be contrarian. I've read a few of these how-to-write-a-fake-language guides, often they are strong proponents of language inappropriate for fan consumption, or in appropriate for script writer consumption (few/no script writers successfully wrote anything in Klingon)-- in other words, ...

Crazy people want to change English

So I keep reading all these people discouraging people from making relexes. I get their point that a relex isn't a new language, but sometimes, I think, a creative project calls for an relex, not another unspeakable Elvish. For example, the con-dialects (whole sci fi books have been written in a Sco...

Re: Unimplemented idea for chanting

Round one of machine generating a long chant. Uniform distributions for picking consonants and vowels, 10% final n, phonetically invalid syllables removed-- all basic words that mean something removed. I didn't try to remove common proper modifiers. I didn't try to favor syllables that are easier to...

Linguistics question

How does one calculate the probability distribution for the odds a character will appear in a word? I'm trying to create a new tp word generator. An even distribution creates words that 50% of the time end with n, which is not what we see in the dictionary, nor in a typical text. Say it had three wo...
