Today, we spend a ridiculous amount of time talking about adpositions, creating an hour-long discussion out of something William thought would be short. We also have an extra special featured conlang today — one hand crafted specifically for this podcast!

Here’s my try at the caseless conlang exercise. Sorry it’s a little
late in coming, but I was busy the last few weeks and am only now
catching up with the podcast. 🙂
It’s been a good many years since I sketched out more than a phoneme
inventory for a conlang, so I apologize for it being a little rough.
Question, I am new to the whole conlang concept.
I have been a podcast subscriber since week 1 when I read about it on the Conlang Mailing List.
I have been lurking on the subject for years at this point, but still haven’t started.
Your podcast is the first place I have heard about IPA, I have downloaded the chart from Wikipedia,
Is there some way to make sense of it? I mean if IPA is somewhat necessary for others to understand what you are doing.
I have no formal linguistics training.
Any help with IPA would be appreciated.
