When beginning a project as large as a conlang, it is important to set out your goals before hand, especially if it is a group/crowd activity.

Before we continue discussing specifics, we need to establish and preserve our goals and intentions for H8Speech at a high level. There have already been several disagreements about specifics that stem from a disagreement about what our general goal are/should be.

This thread is for discussing and coming to a general agreement on what those goals should be.

I have identified the topics below as ones needing discussion. I think we should hold off discussing any more specifics until we have at least these sorted out, but there may be more we need to discuss.

>In broadly, is the goal of H8speech to make a language that is reflective of 8chan's culture and cultural perception, or one that can be adopted and used by people on 8chan? These may not necessarily be exclusive to one another (at least not all the time), but I believe one needs to be defined as a primary goal, because it appears that they are conflicting as things are now. Both may be deemed equally important, or both important to in different ammounts, and if so that will have a strong effect on how specifics are planned.

>If being reflective of 8chan is considered to be important to any extent, what does that entail? There seems to be agreement that a perception of harshness is important, but there is little agreement about anything else. Are barriers to entry inherent to being reflective of 8chan? Are complexity, irregularity, difficulty, and/or incomprehensibility important to being reflective of 8chan? Is being different and alien an integral part of 8chan? Are specific emotions or ideas like hatred or politics inherent to 8chan?

>To what degree should we use opportunities to make jokes or be offensive in the language, that is, to weave memes into it? Does this take precedence over being reflective of 8chan or being easily adoptable?

>Evoking real languages and cultures is a powerful tool for giving a conlang a certain flavor. To what degree should H8speech draw from real world langauges in order to evoke them, and which ones (if any)? For example the phonologPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Trying to make the words unpronounceable will make the langauge useless.

No. It will rarely be pronounced.

English has 17 vowels.

Consonant clusters can go up to 8 before a vowel and 5 after.

Why don't you make an inventory and post it?

mine is not perfect, but I know once you understand the langauge, listening to natives really helps forging the accent.

Should I share this boardtag on Twitter btw ?

So how are we gonna handle creating vocabulary? Are we just gonna pull random phonemes from a hat and smack them together, or…?

Then read up on how langauges work and start posing in the threads. It's a democracy here, anybody's suggestions might make it in.

Here's some beginner linguistical videos

OP, rather than jumping in to strictures about this or that aspect of the langauge, let us instead define our principles, so that each individual can feel for themselves what works for them, rather than forcing everyone to adhere to some forms, which will cause people to not use the forms unless they really do fit, which will cause the langauge to go the way of proper latin

also, before jumping into phonetics, or even into creating symbols, let us consider what meanings we need symbols for. i say we should start with abstract verbs, because almost all communications in a langauge are describing some event in which things are moving, some action, or can be easily modeled as such.

Here's something that I think everyone can enjoy. Duolingo is free.

There's also a good Klingon audio book on Audible, for pronunciation practice! If you get a trial of audible, you get 1 book for free. So this could be the one. You can cancel your audible subscription, without paying a dime. Of course, there are many other audio books you could get.

I think Klingon, though not quite a H8speech in truth, could probably wind up on the SPLC's radar as "white supremacist," given adequate autism.

i tested duolingo on some of my langauges: they make too many fundamental mistakes. i suspect people learning via duolingo come out with mistakes that would take years to fix, mistakes which perpetuate the myths that langauges are hard to learn, that the native speakers are stupid and know nothing about their own langauge

I claim this board in the name of /pol/

gas yourself

318e8c No.259

This board has nothing to do with /pol/ (or slightly) nor /letfypol/

ce7244 No.260

Obviously not from /pol/. No /pol/ack would call himself /pol/yp nor capitalize a board name.

Should we have /c ɟ/? A rolled R? Schwa (that's the "uh" sound)? Glottal stop (the catch in your throat when you say uh-oh)? I say we take some inspiration from Burmese.

Pic unrelated.

This thread is for educating people who want to participate but don't know enough about linguistics, and for posting resources for them to use to teach themselves.

If you are one of those people post your questions ITT.

Pic related is a language creation guide I made for /tg/.

These are the less cancerous video about phonology and phonetics I found: https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=629s&v=elFOQnWr5Co
