Recently deleted link[edit]

The following recently deleted link is moved here:

  • Langmaker.com, a regularly updated directory of over 1,100 invented languages and neographies.

According to the root link, http://www.langmaker.com, the Langmaker website has been "temporarily" disabled. It is moved here so that it may be checked from time to time to see if it has been re-enabled. Then it may be added back to the article. – Paine Ellsworth CLIMAX! 19:28, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

It's interesting to note that the Langmaker site has been archived. The web archive is at:

Apparently, the wiki-ish website is down for the count. These archived pages are searchable and might still prove useful.

Neologisms good or bad ?[edit]

New notions are evoling in science. We cannot use long polylectic terms in huge texts. The point is to add with some official methodology, and to create an Anglophone Institute like the French did.

Robert Sapolsky has made studies for extremely open to change people and extremely conservative to old-known notions. Both extremes are connected with mental health problems. Go to the Stanford University official page and ask if you can help us set a new behavioral experiment.

Scope of example list[edit]

A list of words and phrases which at one point were neologisms (ie. "in the process of entering common use, but [not yet] accepted into mainstream language") would be a list of every word in the dictionary, wouldn't it? Should the list of example neologisms be explicitly restricted to those which are "directly attributable to a specific person, publication, period, or event", and described as such? --McGeddon (talk) 16:37, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

I came to this talk page to with the same exact concerns as above. Unless some criteria can be established these lists need to be removed as there is giant tangled mess of issues with these lists that has not be discussed at all. 97.104.138.227 (talk) 19:08, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Large lat syndrome (LLS)[edit]

Large lat syndrome is a condition when a person who frequents a gym has received so many gains their lats prevent their arms from being able to rest against their body.

Unlike ILS, LLS is for people who can't actually put their arms down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Billy6536 (talkcontribs) 20:35, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
