I cant even tell if he lisps in that...Randnar wrote:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28SE_lWKnlEMagdha Tiefenerz wrote:Does a split/forked tongue force you to lisp and to use more s-sounds? I have never seen a snake speak so it is hard to tell.
My thoughts exactly.Silo wrote:He does have a lisp in that. Also, to my knowledge, a lisp can be formed when the touch goes too far out of the mouth when one uses an "S". Assuming lizardmen have long tongues, this'd cause the lisp.
In my mind, lizardmen have long, thin, forked tongues. And they probably taste the air. That's how I'd RP it.
Totally agree.Flux wrote:The worst one is when you see a lizard write "sss" on a BOARD.
It's alright when orcs write their accents because they're stupid and they'd just write phonetically, and end up writing their mistaken language as what they interpret as correct. Lizards though.. seriously..?
Ahh well, at least you don't make your lad out to more stupider (who knew that was a word? ) by making it out your char never grasped his own language fully. Really orcies... or are we playing to the dumb dumb stereotype?Sirith-Rym wrote:I began doing it that way because I agree with you. But then all the other lizards I've met kept doing the "ssss" so I gave in to the influence of my peers.
Sorry, but I don't understand why this is something that has to be decided. Why is it a problem that some lizardmen have a split/forked tongue and some not? Even within one species not every one is the same. For example: some people have dark skin, some people have slanted eyes, etc.Jupiter wrote:To make it correct: I do not care for the S-sounds.
I just want to know if the tongue is split or not. Many play so, others not. This is nothing were you have to discuss about, but simply something where someone has to decide. Or a GM decides that liazrds can have both: a "normal" tongue or a split tongue.
