Fauxlosophe said e would try to get established here as well, so he said I could copy his fén articles onto the wiki Greatbuddha (talk) 15:15, 9 December 2012 (CET)

Absolutely. I gathered that was the case when you imported his languages! :p Waahlis.png Waahlis 18:20, 9 December 2012 (CET)

Comment on comments

Hi Greatbuddha, I love that you read and bother to feedback many articles and files, but I'm sorry to say that the author of them is currently inactive, so you probably won't get a response any time soon! Just wanted to make sure you didn't feel ignored! :)

Sincerely, Waahlis.png Waahlis 20:05, 13 July 2013 (CEST)

Behru cesik

If Fauxlosophe'll nominate me I'll offer Behru cesik for the next featured language voting. I've made a translation of the banner

pécesig zu shúñëkliinujep yacióolañujiil This language was once featured

lyálkuclikli, fúroclikli, dzëlécecclikli bañusiilcoloonkaye, yacióolañuloonkakimpi cágugzhiiniholíl. Thanks to its level of quality, plausibility, and usage capabilites, it has been voted as featured.

I'd be happy to give you a go, though I'm not sure there is voting on right now. I do think your page here needs a bit of cleaning up; a few things didn't transfer over well from :\Wikia [A glaring red "Template:Hpc" appears on a few tables]. If you can clear up Aesthetics, I'll nominate your language.
Past that though, I would recommend adding a few Leipzig glosses [which I was told to add to mine before I got my nomination and are pretty useful] and expand Vocab. Perhaps even add a few simple lessons; I tend to look at languages with the aim to learn a little of how it would be spoken but I still get very little of that with Behru Cesik and I have trouble constructing phrases with it. I'm happy enough to nominate you once the article is cleaned up [and a vote starts] but I think you'll need to make some of these changes for a chance at winning [and so it might be wise to let votipng be delayed until you have made some of these changes].

Nominations have started. As stated in the other, I'd be happy to give you a nomination once the page is cleaned up. I'd be more than happy to help with tidying up the page as well, if you need any assistance with it. Also, if you'd like to, I highly recommend asking Waalis for advice; he really helped me clean up Fén Ghír's page.

Thanks for telling me about the leipzig glosses, I've sen them so many times but had no idea how to use them. I'm not sure id it would be a good idea to nominate behru cesik now, i'm considering completely redoing it again after reading through some more inuktitut grammars.


Understandable, I've been there once or twice though I think Fén is stable now so I'm putting my desire to tweak things into new languages. I want to clean up Cwengâr for nominations as well and then I intend to work on a distant more Romantic/Latinate cousin and the more Fusional/Synthetic one that I requested your collaboration on earlier.

The glossing rules are listed out here, if you are interested. I had some trouble with it at first, but it's not too bad if you're willing to read it out. You might skim over the Fén Ghír page and Zelo's Umbrean Examples for simplified transcriptions, I use it pretty sparingly so that might be helpful to show the fuctions of it while Zelos has a much less isolating language which is helpful to show individual functions but I feel like he over uses it.

If you have any questions or want me to look over/help with the page, I'd be happy to give word.

Bizarre idioms

In considering the origins of the Behru and related peoples, I've had some fun thinking about how their language will change. The progenitors of the Behru, the Ae, are refugees from an almost succesful genocide that almost completely destroyed a complex civilization over 60,000 years old, killing trillions. Since the remaining survivors speak a language made for a high-tech utopia and have been reduced to the stone age, their language is gonna have a lot of weird idioms. Perhaps their verb for "to ride an elevator, train" will become "to ride a floating object, raft", and eventually "to sail", once advanced watercraft have been reinvented. "to fly on an aircraft" would probably become "to travel, go somewhere distant". "to message, text" would probably become "to pass along, speak in private". "to shop, purchase" might become "to pluck, grasp", productive foraging regions might be called "markets". Their culture is going to be really weird, they'll be paleolithic hunter-gatherers with an easily learned writing system, allowing much of the paleolithic period to be preserved in writing, and since the Behru have indefinite lifespans, there might be a few lucky people who manage to survive for thousands of years and be living historians.
