Are you two linguists by any chance? We can send this up the ivory tower to be regarded by the powers that are, but the language could use more work first

I wouldn't be qualified to flesh it out beyond what it currently is. Otherwise I would certainly offer my (non-existence) expertise!

What kind of work would be required to polish it fully? What's missing? Before anyone gets started working it would be nice to know what the ivory tower requirements are. Its creator is Xiaou whom I can still talk to IRL, but a while ago, he and I both talked about editing the shit out of it- aka removing the tons and tons of superfluous vowels that make it cumbersome as a roleplay language with less character than ganoomish.

Actually this old post of his helps

I read up a bit on creating languages. It's not too complex, but is a lot of work.

I did some brainstorming, and what Sylvan needs first and foremost is a playtest. Isadora hit it on the head with "what's missing?" Let's find its weaknesses. Take some logs of Avlis play - grab your PC's log or a journal entry, or zvid chat - and translate some of it into the Sylvan we have. Pay attention to grammar and vocabulary needs - those are what we will flesh out.

*Another Edit: 24 hour warning. I'm going to move this out of ATT and into GD
