Hello, everyone. I'm currently interested in creating a dictionary organization tool that is targeted specifically to Conlangers. If you're like me, then you keep your languages simply in a document or excel file, which gets the job done, but not as well as it could. My main goal would be to make the software as user friendly as possible, to allow support for many different alphabets and of course to keep it free and open source!

If there is interest in such a tool, please let me know because I would like to conduct a survey to find out more about Conlangers' needs and how important certain features would be to them.

Thank you! :)

Hm, this is an interesting group and i am curious as to if anyone here could help with creating a fantasy Language, or pointing me into the direction of someone i can ask about the question. I am a writer and i am hoping to bring in a language or two for my fantasy Inhabitants. I am not sure how active this group is but i hope some one here can help me. Thank you.

I created a few conlangs. Although I'm not an expert (I couldn't even tell you the difference between priori and a priori), maybe I can give you a few tips.
Same if you're thinking about introducing a writing system. I create those as a hobby and have like four folders filled so far.

Yeah that would totally help! I've always been interested in it, but can say I fully understand how to.

May I ask, would you mind if you had a 'Neologism' folder for users to coin new English words and post them into that folder?

If we had a conlanging question, where would we ask it?

I'm not sure where to ask this, but I have a couple questions about auxiliary verbs and perfective/imperfective cases.

If a language doesn't have auxiliary verbs (can, would, have), could they use perfective/imperfective case to solve any problems arising from not having auxiliary verbs? Could a language do without either? Is perfective/imperfective even related to auxiliary verbs? 

That's all I really wanted to ask. :D Perfective/imperfective has always confused me.
