I was into Vp bigtime for a couple of years up til last year, and used to frequent the IRC room. I've just read through this topic, have got a couple of little remarks to make.

1. Regarding ä and e, most people (including me) believe they're pronounced [E] and [e] respectively, but Ralph Midgely has stated more than once that it's the other way round! My gut feeling is that the usually-correct Guvan has got it wrong. Unless a definitive statement from Schleyer or De Jong can be found that supports Ralph, I suggest Volapükans stick to the majority view.

2. Regarding new words, new roots are added to the language by the Kadäm (Academy). If you think a new word is needed, send it to Ralph (or someone else high-up) by email or at the Yahoo Group, and leave it to them. Within a few weeks, they will either reject the suggestion, officially add a new word (which could potentially be one you suggested yourself), or declare that it is to be formed from existing roots.

There should be a complete dictionary somewhere, but I'm not aware of one. Also, to my knowledge, the majority of recently created roots have been country names, which you can find at Vükiped.

Those of you interested in Volapük may be pleased to learn that Ralph Midgeley has begun a translation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, to be titled Ventürs jiela Lälid in Stunalän. I will be publishing the translation when it is finished.

Ralph is posting the draft one paragraph a day for those who would like to help proof it.

Glidis, flen!

I'm up for it any time, however previous experience has shown that it's better to plan meetings in the chatroom in advance (if it's possible make them regular).

Where do you live and what would be a good time for you to meet in the channel? I'm available evenings GMT.

We could also use Skype or TeamSpeak to chat in Volapük (it's fun!)

I usually realize ä as [æ] and e as [ɛ] in closed syllables but [e] in open ones.

Hi everybody!
I don't know if anybody is still checking this thread, but I'm still going to post it.

My name's Benjamin, I live in Denmark, I'm 13 years old and I've gotten pretty interested in Volapük. I speak Danish (of course), English and a bit of German. I've been trying to learn a new language, but all of the languages I've tried wasn't interesting (French, Latin, Russian and Chinese). But Volapük really catched me, and I would spend lots of time to get fluent in it. I like the sounds and the grammar of it.

What resources are there out there to learn Volapük? I couldn't find much else than this: http://personal.southern.edu/~caviness/ ... vif00.html

I am absolutely not a volapükker, but looking at the archive.org is always a good idea:

I hope it helps and I wish you success in your language study. :)
