comment How to indicate the topic has been changed without using words?
Hi. Please don't use posts to carry on conversations; feel free to edit your question to add information or provide clarifications, but it's best if the post reads as an integrated whole, instead of "X... response to A... edited to add B..." etc. The questions work best if the question is clear (and the answers work best as answers); for discussion, please feel free to use Writers Chat.

comment Any advice on how to learn DITA for technical writing?
@NeilFein DITA is an information architecture/organizational scheme; while it's definitely on the geeky side and was presumably influenced by software principles, it's a tech-writing thing and IMO on-topic.

comment How to write a conversation
The "tag" can also be bits of action that are unambiguous. For example, if the dialogue is between a man and a woman, instead of "he said" you can say "he paused, pacing across the floor" or "she fiddled with her hair" or "he took a sip of his now-cold coffee".

comment How can I effectively invent a language?
There is now Worldbuilding, where constructed languages are also on-topic. (You've gotten some excellent answers here and I'm not suggesting moving anywhere, just pointing out the site for future readers.)
