And by that, of course, I mean check the description and click on the link.

Here's a transliteration of what I was saying:
"Glorin munirkiten, mishsokljetha mashmakra mashdefnetrle lhihubaltse. Súrsokljetha khoterkasra mashtsakenetrle khatse. Kolikha ishmintaihekra tomkyara mishlikge mashabinle shúberatwotsonerzhlum. Te salíha mislikra lopkorslentse."
[link]

I think I mispronounced 70% of it. All the As, most of the Os, and most of the Ks and Ss. DX

I like it! Since you mentioned poetry, if you ever get around to writing or translating any into this language I'd love a link to a reading! You spoke these lines with such flow and rhythm I can't imagine how lovely a poem would sound. :) Also I'm jealous, because NONE of my languages were that awesome when I was 13. Actually, I only had one, and it was a cipher of English, and I left all the vowels unchanged. Great work! I look forward to seeing more! (^_^)

Thank you!

Yes, I would definitely want to write one down in the near future! It's a bit hard since I would need to keep in mind the metre if I were to write a poem, and that's a bit hard with Malbjan stress rules. I could write one freely, but I doubt it'd sound very nice /not a poet.

Oh, God, my first conlang was essentially English with a very, very thick Spanish accent. My second one was just nonsensical. Neither had a set vocabulary.

You're welcome! :D

I'm not a poet either, so I understand the difficulty there. But if you ever give it a shot, I'm sure others besides me would be interested in the result too.

First conlangs are hysterical aren't they! XD I compare them to riding a bicycle - you might crash a lot in the beginning but later you never forget the basics.

Aha, yeah, I'll try to do that once I have everything else I have to do cleared up.

That's a great analogy and you should be proud. Although I think I've heard it before? Still true.

Well... yeah. Lots of things can be compared to riding a bicycle. XD Good luck with getting stuff done!

It's got a nice rhythm to it. And you speak it so fluidly that nobody can tell whether you made any mistakes.

My recommendation: If your phonology isn't yet finalized, do that first (or at least codify it and let it evolve). Make sure to write it down using IPA, and learn all the rules. I've taken singer's diction classes for five different languages, and I can tell you now that IPA is a lifesaver.

Thanks~!

My phonology is completely finalised, IPA and all. I'm just no good at remembering it while speaking. Maybe I should start writing it down in the script already or something, I'm much better at pronouncing it then.

Ah, okay. It's just a matter of drilling it into your brain at this point. How many phonemes do you have, and how complicated are the rules?
Reply
:iconred-banner:
Red-banner Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
Yeah.

I have 20 phonemes, and the rules are relatively simple. The "a" is pronounced as "ɛ" if unstressed, "" if stressed. "K" is "q", "t" is "d" and "d" is "". Those are pretty much the only hard parts, I'm just horrible at phonetics :XD:. There are a few weird parts with glottal stops and "r", too, but not much.

Oh, interesting. That would be tricky to remember. Well, pronouncing d as // isn't too much of a stretch, and I can also see k as /q/. 20 phonemes isn't bad at all. Keep going and you'll get it! :D

Look at you go girl! You're just flying by us with your amazing conlang reading ability! It sounds really nice! But with so many long words I congratulate you for saying them so well! How much practice did you have?
Reply
:iconred-banner:
Red-banner Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
Ha, everyone's saying that!
The long words are easy to pronounce, since they can easily be split into smaller words. That's the good thing about synthetic languages, you can (almost) always see the logic behind them~. The length wasn't a problem, actually, more the stress and the vowel sounds. As well as the consonant clusters, like "klj", "lh", "rk", "rzhl", and "shts". They're very foreign.

... I had to practise? :ohnoes:

No practice? :O You are amazing!

I can't imagine how I would do that, seeing "dmdm" is a word. And "jrdh".

Haha, no I'm not, I'm just a fast talker.

Hehe, I have really short invisible vowels inbetween consonances to make it sound better. XD

Wow, that's totally fast and fluent!

and we do start young don't we, imagine what this group will grow up to be, maybe it'll be like the hard core of all conlanging activities,

Thanks! Considering how much I messed up, that's good to hear.

"and we do start young don't we" you're like the first one who can tell my age just by looking. Most people think I'm a year or two older, for whatever reason.

Woah, that would be super cool! Also a tad bit unrealistic, but we can all fantasise, eh?

*joking* ^^

Oh, I think I most definitely could be wrong in a range of two years,
it's just not like you're thirty or something, well I guess young is just a real broad range of ages, so it's easy to right ^^

I'd like to hear your own, too! Mostly because I can never remember the phonology.

So I guess I was wrong indeed exactly two years!

Oh, yeah I don't know I'm not all that comfortable with youtube, and speaking English in stead of typing or thinking in English...
but I really don't know what the future holds on that topic, maybe I will,
I will certainly bare in mind that you asked me. ^^
