It's been a long while since I've posted new Angos stuff.

Here is a test lesson I just made, based on an Interlingua beginner's lesson:

Also a learner of Angos on Reddit made this awesome searchable dictionary, type in the English word and get the Angos translation: http://cockroach.tk/JavaScript/as_you_type_dic/

Yes; after all, no natlangs have a negative "particle" instead of negative verbal morphology. :P


No, that's not what I was implying, I was more or less saying I find a negative particle boring and unadventurous.

Thee would probably like Finnish: it conjugates its negative particle.

So I actually updated the syntax a bit.

Instead of just setting off subordinate clauses with commas (which obviously don't transfer to speech), I'm just using the relativizer particle and a demonstrative

old: wo hopa, lo gia (I hope [that] they go)

new: wo hopa fo lae lo gia (I hope this, which [is] they go)

This is more consistent with the variable transitivity of the verb.

The change makes sense. Even when a gap strategy is an option, it's nice to have a way to explicitly mark subordination, for instance when a sentence starts getting long/complex.

The thing I don't fet is that in your videos on Angos, you say <c> is /ts/ but you pronounce it as /tʃ/.

Otherwise it looks great :D !

Also, I don't know if you've done this already, but I made Cyrrilic and Greek versions of the Angos alphabet (I tried to approximate the sounds as best I could for the original orthographies of Slavic languages and Greek):

Cyrrilic:

а б ч/ц д е/э ф г х и й/ј л к м н о п с т у в ы
ангос
ле/лэ аксало

Greek:

α μπ τσ/τς δ ε φ γγ/γκ χ η ι λ κ μ ν ο π σ/ς τ ου β ω
ανγγος/ανγκος
λε ακσαλο

Thanks! Originally it was /ts/, but I changed it to /tʃ/

And I looked at transcription into Hangul as well, which (surprisingly) worked out

Hey all!

A small group of people started learning Angos and convinced me to make a Facebook group, so here it is! Activity is picking up again ^_^

Someone in the FB group suggested that I make little comics to help people learn the language, so I'm happy to introduce the beginning of "Kelio mwe Miko" (http://imgur.com/a/phvKR)

It seems pretty heteronormative now, but just y'all wait for that tea. Mike's queer af and his partner is non-binary. And he's allergic to apples. Kelly is a physicist. And she loves apples.
