conways game of life conlang (carrier pond verylongsnake snake)

there are 3 main methods to writing this
tncn

tncn is the one i use most often and based off a chart

names is using the names of still life (including pond spaces)

actual is using the actual conways game of life space to write it

Code: Select all

x = 82, y = 11, rule = B3/S23

Idea:
(used to distinguish pronouns mainly)
Bipole facing up: masculine marker
Bipole facing down: feminine marker (both are placed after the 3rd person pronoun)

Code: Select all

x = 18, y = 5, rule = B3/S23

To express most non-CGoL ideas, you need to use the alphabet. Here are the vowels and plosives in the alphabet (white blocks show where they are connected to adjacent letters):

No, the sounds that most consonant letters make are derived from their names. (clock 2, pinwheel, beacon, etc.)

What about digits? (And since it's a conlang, do we use Arabic numerals or not?)

There are two diagraphs. [Lightbulb variant][P9 thumb] for /ɬ/, and [T-nosed P4][T-nosed P4] for /tʃ/.
Edit: Written out, John Conway’s name looks likes this (you can use ponds to support letters that need inducting at the edges):

Edit 2: There exists only a definitive article in this language (equivalent of “the”). i for neuter and masculine, ie for feminine, and ia for golline (there is no distinction between singular and plural for the definite article). The indefinite article is dropped.
Edit 3: There are actually four genders in this conlang. Neuter, masculine, feminine, and golline. Golline refers specifically to CGoL objects and terms.

Code: Select all

To express most non-CGoL ideas, you need to use the alphabet. Here are the vowels and plosives in the alphabet (white blocks show where they are connected to adjacent letters):

No, even when turned, the bipoles always face that way because of the way they are structured.
By the way, how about this?
Your language is Conwaylang Basic, and what everyone else added on to it is regular Conwaylang.
Also, I’m removing the masculine and feminine markers.

ok. conwaylang basic is not what mine is called. it is called carrier pond verylongsnake snake. and bipole is a verb tense marker now

Idea for carrier pond verylongsnake snake:
Another way of representing oscillators and spaceships is by using systematic names. First, open it with the word for “oscillator” or “spaceship”. Open it with a dock. Then, write out the parameters, which are separated with snake siamese snakes. Close it with a dock. Demonstration (guess the spaceship):

Conwaylang is intended to be interchangeably written with CPVS (short for Carrier Pond Verylongsnake Snake) when describing CA.

New idea for CPVS (not Conwaylang, CPVS): A number system:

Code: Select all

#C yes, it’s hexadecimal and it uses History, but since you’ll hardly need to use numbers anyway in CPVS, why not keep it anyway?
x = 190, y = 114, rule = LifeHistory
$4.3D10.D10.3D9.3D9.D.D9.3D9.3D9.3D9.3D9.3D10.D10.2D11.2D9.2D10.3D9.3D

Note that it requires LifeHistory. The yellow blocks are just there to stabilize the induction coils, and are not part of the numbers. The white cell at the top shows which direction it’s facing because turnwriting exists.
I’m proposing this because it allows for oscillators and spaceships to be expressed in the format []P[]H[]V[]. As an example, guess the pattern:

Code: Select all

x = 38, y = 6, rule = LifeHistory
6.C3.C6.C6.C6.C$5.A.A.A.A4.ADA4.A.A4.A.A$.2A2.ADA.ADA4.A.A4.ADA4.A.A2.

Edit: I also propose addition of a fourth row and column to the phonotactics:

And also a way of writing that looks better than the regular way, using 2-letter “codes”:

b2/verylongsnake: Vs

c3/beehive: Bh
c4/shillelagh: Sl
d1/integral: It
d2/feathereater: Fe
d3/snakecarrier: Sc
d4/quad: Qu

Edit 2: Quad should mean machine, to make a word for “code” [lit: machine language]:

Edit 3: Which in turn leads to a phrase for “search program” [lit: machine language creates objects]:

Code: Select all

x = 49, y = 8, rule = B3/S23

Edit 4: Nevermind. "search program" is actually [lit] machine language [separator] creates objects:

Code: Select all

x = 57, y = 8, rule = B3/S23
