Ideas for new challenges
Hi! As you can see, there’s no weekly challenge this week (I ran out of time, I couldn’t even participate in the last days of the last week challenge). I hope to start a new challenge new week, but I’m looking for ideas. Remember that you can also organise a challenge yourself, but if you prefer that I organise it, no problem: just leave a comment with your idea!2

I’m up for a bit of anything, tbh. My only preference is that I prefer challenges that are a bit broader and open to interpretation, so that they’re doable by ppl whose conlangs are at different stages of development. I’ve really enjoyed the 2 past week’s challenges (the color one and the Let’s go one) because I could actually play even though I’m sorta early days still. I’m also a sucker for thematic or seasonal challenges.
Ok. What do you think about Madeline’s idea?
I think a “describing people” could be fun–a family member? friend? a fictional character of your own/someone else’s invention? yourself as seen by someone else? I could run that if you don’t want to.
Good idea, if there aren’t any more ideas, I’ll do it next week. Thanks!
I think this would be very cool. Colors, shapes, weights and measures, etc. I’m game.
That sounds like fun!
There is a challenge that I find quite cool on reddit called, “Telephone.” The original poster lists a word from his/her language along with its definition. The idea is this: all the other conlangers use that word listed and change it slightly to match that of their own language and create a new word that has a similar meaning.
e.g. Suppose the word listed is artash:
artash n. lock
Then we look at that and create a new word in our language with our sounds:
artashu n. fem. lock
etađun v. to lock… et cetera
