    Journal Highlights: Notes & Queries

    So you've just finished that highly controversial paper on Class III Weak Verbs or why His Dark Materials is the greatest fantasy epic of the age. Do you let it gather dust in the recesses of your hard drive, going the way of so many great essays which might have been? Do you tuck it blithely...

    Call for Papers: Teaching and Popular Culture for NEPCA

    Someone was good enough to bring a CFP to our attention which is probably so far up the alley of someone our Eagles and Dragons that it's practically in the next street. The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) announces its first call for paper proposals for its annual...

    Some Conlanging

    A think most people (or at least many people) who have an interest in languages will try their hand at conlanging, sooner or later. For me, it began in my childhood, when I started to notice the enormous differences between my two cradle tongues (English and Mandarin). Language play/language...

    Practicing simple greetings...

    Ver heill ok sæll! Be hale and happy! (Old Norse) Salve! Be saved! (Latin) And some greetings in Amborian (a conlang of mine): Keviahi tuvjam? Being-free-are you? Ollot tuvaum? Being-called you? Wes, I've posted a bit about my current project, which I hope will develop into my Signum...

    The Poet's Tale - MacDuff

    Sparrow, Thank you so much for reading and for the good feedback! To address a few of your points... There are lots, lots, lots of stories. The frame device is just the one Rinsos uses for the collection which he's curating (very little of it is actually written by him, although his commentary...

    The Poet's Tale - MacDuff
