:From a purely aesthetic perspective this actually a pretty good idea, yeah. Not quite naturalistic but I like it.

:Also, a bug I just remembered: Words beginning with certain characters are not shown in dictionary overviews. I *think* it applies to non-ascii characters when the latin alphabet is used, but the concrete example of this I have is words beginning with <ñ-> in the [[Old Inggirian Dictionary]]. I was trying to debug this at some point but without a local annie my best guess is that it's a problem with the code used to perform the db lookup for dictionaries.

:I think so. It might be worth it to make the collation configurable... Whether I can do that depends on how hardcoded that is into the PHP part of the site, though.

Conlang.org's community list (2020-03-07 10:10:32)
:I would say your reaction to "this is a platform I don't use" was somewhat tactless.
An interesting question raised here though is what you (or people in general) are looking for in a Conlanging Community. I, for example, almost never use the Languages page. My favorite landing page is the Recent Site Activity page, which is much more interesting, since it shows you what's being worked on and, more importantly, allows you to keep track of what people whose output you know you enjoy are ...

Coming Attraction: Sound Changes (2020-02-21 11:45:58)
:The mind boggles. A welcome development.
As you may have noticed in the past six years, I have my fingers in too many pies to be consistently useful but on the bright side I know the Cadre version 151218 codebase basically by heart now, so if you have a source code repository anywhere...

Featured Articles (Nominations, etc.) (2020-02-15 09:42:48)
:We do have suggestions still outstanding from last time, but ideally I'd want to feature something from somebody who could be described as an active user. Which disqualifies a lot of suggestions! It does allow for featuring [#228887|your article on face-painting], though, which was also floated last time.
Whimemsz' story is also still a possibility, as is some of bloodbath's money.

:You'll have to upload it somewhere and then link it here. Annie does have some image hosting powers in universes that you can use for this purpose if you wish.

Division of Vowels (2019-06-20 12:52:18)
:I haven't done any quantitative studies on it, but I imagine such a situation would indeed be quite rare. It depends, somewhat, on the phonological context of your language. Is hiatus avoidance something that there are synchronic phonological rules for? As in, do underlying sequences of vowels occur, which are then resolved somehow, or do they just happen to not occur for whatever reason? It could be, for instance, that your language lost some consonant specifically between two <a>, such a...

Division of Vowels (2019-06-18 04:06:33)
:That depends on what you mean by "double 'a' vowel". The way you transcribe it, it looks like you have a syllable boundary there, which means that unless you have an intervening glottal stop you'd be violating your own language's hiatus rule. If you mean something else, I highly recommend you take a look at [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet|this convenient transcription method] to make it more clear.
