Bianca’s last show as a regular host goes into a rather ambitious topic: discourse particles. Go listen to the show, because it’s too complicated a subject for me to summarize properly here. We also feature a natlang going by two names.
Top of Show Greeting: Amjati
Links and Resources:
- Paper with a typology and some general info (Mostly uses German and English)
- Mando Malay
- Chinese discourse particles (skip to the qualitative analysis)
Featured NATLANG: Nootka and Makah
So first off let me start by saying we love your podcasts and posts. They provide a great resource to the conlanging community. Me and two other friends who met online through various conlanging forums or Tumblr have started a blog devoted to conlanging, but specifically trying to provide an easy to understand resource for newbie conlangers. We have about 30 or more posts already and one episode of our very own podcast that we are planning on running. We were wondering if you could give our blog/podcast either a mention, or a link on one of your next posts or in your next podcast so we can gain readers and get the word out there that we are a good resource for newbie and veterans alike. Our blog is currently being hosted through Tumblr, and there URL is http://deconstructedconstruction.tumblr.com
We’re just a new blog trying to fill a niche in the conlanging community that we believe is left somewhat unfilled. We by no means want to compete with your podcasts, and in fact we have your blog/podcasts in our resources section as a great site to check out about conlanging. I’m sure there are plenty of your listeners that could also find our blog helpful.
Thanks for any support you can give us!
