I think she has described her relationship with PL/I in the past as not so much a fan's enthusiasm as an eternal summer sunset kind of infatuation.

Well yes, but the thing is, I [i]would[/i] like to use it. The dictionary feature is very much the best there is (all the alternatives being either more or less annoying, or laughable), and having articles grouped with them under a single language entry was a great idea.

:<guitarplayer> ever since I returned from Canada I've preferred tapwater
<guitarplayer> because you don't usually get carbonated water in America it seems
<guitarplayer> so after months of drinking tapwater, I just stuck with it
<guitarplayer> since the tapwater here is reasonably good

:Suggested stress pattern: Word-initial, or near the beginning of the word (maybe there's derivational prefixes that never take stress?).
[quote con quesa, Layperson, California]For negation, why not copy English on this?

:I don't particularly care about the typology of the conlang. I'd be okay with something very analytic or something very synthetic, something with many affixes or something with a lot of root compounding, something with European-style standard negation (a single invariable particle before or after the verb) or something with a more exotic kind of standard negation, say, negative inflectional affixes that have a different tense system from that of positive (non-negative) verbs (cf.

Is there any interest in making a collablang? It seems like it has never been tried in this community.
We were talking about it for a little bit, and a few people seemed interested, but without making a huge commitment to it. Which is very fair of course, collablang threads tend to move very fast.
I just hoped I'd have better luck making a collablang here......
