Hearing your conlangs

Postby alpha-omega » Sun 23 May 2010 7:38 pm

Hey guys, till now we have just written about our conlangs, written rules of grammar, sentences, tried to read those by IPA or something different. But I think only the creator can read those best. That is why I am saying "Let's upload audio files about our conlangs. Let's read some text in the conlang and let others hear accent etc."

I'm going to pass on this, primarily because although my conlang-in-progress is intended to be spoken language, it's a language from a different culture than my own. My attempts to sound it out as I construct it has convinced me that my speaking it would not be a "native" pronunciation.

I am absolutely down for this. I don't have time right now, but later on, I'll get some sound recording software and make a few recordings.

alpha-omega, the sound quality was bad. And I didn't like how you read the poem. Poems are feelings expressed in words. They have to reflect the feelings that they are. You can't just read a poem. You have to read it with voice. One doesn't even have to know the language to say what I said. There is a universality of human emotion, especially love, and you need to be truthful to it.

Hi kloiten, I didn't make this audio for hearing the poem. I made it for language. So, please do not make comments about the way I read the poem. I agree with you. I didn't pay attention to it. It took me 2 minutes to prepare it. Because I have histology exam tomorrow and nobody has sent their audio files here I thought I could begin. I didn't want to write new sentences. Waste of time. Well, I promise I will read some normal sentences (not poem) next time to make everybody happy. :)
