Today, we all talk about the wonderful nuclear-fricitiveness of Ogami, a real life natural language in the Ryukyuan family.  It’s got lots of little bits to inspire you in your conlangs.  Enjoy!

UPDATE: The Endangered Alphabets Kickstarter I mentioned at the top of the show and linked above has reached its goal.  I like to think some of you helped push it over the edge, and if so, thanks.  If you haven’t checked it out, yet, you can still donate until the 15th.

This week we talk about one of the older languages in the conlang community, Arthaey’s Asha’ille.  And no, that spelling has nothing at all to do with the language’s phonology.  You’ll learn a bit about that in the episode.

We are super excited to reveal that our third host for (we hope) the duration of William’s absence will be none other than David J. Peterson!  Take a listen as we talk through the challenges of making an agglutinative language that isn’t depressingly boring.

Today we tackle a very interesting typology topic: head-marking and dependant-marking.  Turns out that whether your language leans one way or another affects (or depends on) a wide variety of grammatical features.  Be sure to check the links below for additional info.

Thought I would put out there, Conlangery episode #64 will probably publish later than usual.  In my haste to move I apparently had not synced my computer to my backup service before moving.  Hence, after several days of syncing my laptop up to said service, I discovered that Conlangery64_rough.aup was no where to be found.  My hope is that it is, in fact, saved on my desktop computer, which will be sent to me via UPS in a few days, and I don’t end up with a “lost episode” — just a late one.
