      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. YAY! Just got the message from Blaveloper. I am going to create such a section after Christmas. Hope that is ok for you. That's fine with me. I hope that it is successful. I'm on another language forum & they have a conlang section.
  2. I hope that it comes to pass. It would be neat to learn Klingon, Vulcan, Na'vi, etc.
  3. I don't see a forum on conlangs. I'd love to create a conlang. I've spent hours on YouTube & Wikipedia & Google learning about languages & grammar & syntax. I've come up with ideas. Coming up with a grammar & syntax is fairly easy. It's coming up with a vocabulary that's hard! So, I hope a conlang forum & specific conlang sub-forums are added.
  4. I went to YouTube & researched the Dutch language. Some say it is easy to pronounce & some say it isn't. Some of the diphthongs have a similar pronunciation. Afrikaans is similar to Dutch. Personally, I find the German pronunciation easier to learn than Dutch.
  5. I apologize for my remarks. I have a tendency to put my foot in my mouth. Unfortunately, patience isn't one of my virtues. This is Google's translation of "Ik vind forums leuk, omdat ik daar veel aan heb, want er zijn veel leden." I think forums like because I have that much, because there are many members. How accurate a translation is that? I think that German is a neat language in the way it does syntax, but it is difficult to learn because of the cases & syntax. I've spent hours on Wikipedia & YouTube & the internet learning about languages & grammar & syntax because I'd love to create a language. So now I'm a member on 2 language forums!
  6. A week ago I asked a question. I have yet to receive an answer. Why hasn't my question been answered? Your forum isn't the only German language forum on the internet. Is this the way that you treat all members of this forum? Since you haven't bothered to answer my question, I'll ask the question on another German language forum.
  7. Would someone please answer my question?
  8. I like the forum name - Linguaholic! That's what i am. I'd love to create a language. I've spent hours on YouTube & Wikipedia & Google learning about languages & grammar. I've adopted some of the German grammar rules like verb placement in dependent clauses & verb second position in sentences. I know that in German the verb goes at the end of a dependent clause. Well, I have a "worst case scenario" for you. Suppose that there's a noun clause that's modified by an adjective clause which is modified by an adverb clause! What's the word order? I can't provide an example so I hope that you can.
