Hey, Seagazer... I'm in the process of preparing the entry, but have difficulties with the characters you use in the Spoken Phonology section - can you tell me exactly how you can produce the fancy ones? Copy paste doesn't work unfortunately, but they are displayed correctly here in the Forum...

I don't know aout Seagazer, but I normally copy them from somewhere.  Not all fonts can display them though, so that could be the issue.  Maybe you could switch the font just for that section?

Well, I found out that when I copy the Forum text into Word the chars make it into Word and the font is displayed as "MS Mincho". Now when I copy these chars from Word into Frontpage it works.

However, two letters for some reason are still wrong:

/d͡ʒ/ written as "j"
/t͡ʃ/ written as "ch"

Hmmm.... The "roof" part of the second letter seems to be the problem. The rest looks fine.

I think it's acceptable to write them as /dʒ/ and /tʃ/. 

As for the font, Arial is usually pretty good for such things, I think.

Yep, methinks that should work. Can't be mixed up with other things, because its unique without the "roof" thingy as well :)

The Arial font BTW doesn't work. I'm not exactly sure how the Forum is capable of displaying the font properly, because there's no specific code in the source code of the post made by Seagazer that would hint at another font, but anyway. Here's the languages page I've prepared BTW - see if you can see the chars displayed properly. MS Mincho seems to be a standard Windows font, so chances are that most users should be able to see it properly without having to install a new font.

Yup, I can see them. 

By the way, it should probably be "vowels" instead of "vocals". 

Edit: Might be Arial Unicode MS instead of plain Arial.  Although if MS Mincho is standard, I guess we could use that.  MS Mincho is apparently a Japanese font.  I'm not sure what it's doing on the forum, if that's indeed what it's using and not Word being weird.

Hey!

I've been busy on both real life and my ongoing project to develop the language of the Rhom-Oc. That should be forthcoming.  Regardless, I think that the font stuff looks great, and as Mina says the bar for affricatives, or the "roof" as you called it, is totally cosmetic. However would be easier in your font is fine.

Hello! Just poking my head in after a long absence.

Your work on the language is much appreciated, Seagazer. My orcs up north welcome the effort you are taking to develop their language.

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

Hello again, Azhira! wave

It's been quite a while, eh? I've even written the Mystrán story a couple of weeks ago I've talked to you about last millennium or so... Took me only years to get to it... lol Anyway, hope you're fine and we hear more from you in the future ;)

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
