A reprisal of a long-ago project.

Quick question- I was in the conlang tag (I am a SUPER beginner) and I saw some cool chart thing as you were building a sentence. We're you using any particular software for that?

That is fact nothing more than ten minutes in Notepad++, a bit of HTML tagging and CSS play. I did write a macro to type the somewhat mind-numbing boilerplate code though; this is the markup for the gloss part and this is the relevant style sheet snippet.

I like the new way of representing interlinear gloss as shown here.

(Would you even know what this is about if it wasn’t for the table headings?)

"The Cognition of Eitmot" and "The Hand of Eitmot"

(The_cognition_Eitmot and the_talent-property_Eitmot)

	Many a time in travels across a distant land,
	One would often find those who speak in tongues
	Whose repretoire it seems would but contain a lonely phone,
	Yet those around him comprehends without a hitch.
	
	And one says, what!?

Given a character P and a group of characters Q (such that the group contains a non-negative integer amount of characters), if P speaks in a distorted way that the audience cannot understand, and everyone in Q understands P perfectly well, then P is said to have “The Hand of Eitmot”, and everyone in Q is said to have “The Cognition of Eitmot”.

Eitmot is a Revered Entity of Encryption and Secrecy. A Revered Entity is like a regular deity, except no one seriously worships a Revered Entity. In that respect, a Revered Entity is a cross between a personification and a deity.

Examples

Situation: α and β are watching Fosters’. Because why not.

α: Méž, cūbatbib ter Kōkōabura, gel ani·ani!
α: Eeh, I can’t understand Coco’s speech at all!

β: Zā, tōs popuya solprāgseitmot.
β: Yea, she has the Hand of Eitmot.

Cipogrtesaj the script. This also looks very stereotypically alien. Note well that there are some minor errors in the script, and the actual script is in orange (not blue or purple).

A corrected gloss, and the romanization of the Cipogrtesaj version.

couldn't the SAS theorem just as easily be called the ASS theorem

mariahcareyvevo:

yeah they should change it to that

i guess i had an unusually mischievous geometry teacher in high school because

ASS (or rather, SSA, as I have been taught) is not a real item – SAS specifically means “two sides and the angle between”, and two sides with an angle not between them will return 0 to 2 triangles depending on how each side and angle is given.

Gloss for Cipogrtesaj.

If you know how to map Logitech G-keys to unique keycodes you are my keyboard shenanigan hero.

It’d appear the official drivers have successfully restricted both the Lua scripting and the built-in…

For now at least, I rigged Numpad:Clear/5 as a modifier key, and set all G-keys to send Numpad:Clear & another key. I barely have enough standard keys to use up all 66 M- and G-key combinations, and of course those are not amenable to shift, ctrl, alt and Win bucky-bits.

It’d appear the official drivers have successfully restricted both the Lua scripting and the built-in functionality enough to stave off all attempts at “Send {SCnnn}”-ing… a way around it is to get some super old drivers (3.03, which from what I read supports arbitrary keycodes), a ton of futzing around with AHKHID (but I never got it to work), making it send HID keycodes (though how that could help is also beyond me), or writing your own driver (!?).

Yay, birthday present! A slightly clunky but entirely workable way to get more keys on the keyboard (and with that a whole lot more keyboard shenanigans! )
