Re: A tale of two contractions

Don't slap yourself, it's the natural course of a language. :P

It just means English in 300 years will have a lot of VERY strange constructions.

Natlengua suena extraño. Pero si es correcto lo usaré.

Re: Language practice thread

Hm, lo siento. Pens aba que habrías tenido que usar 对 porque es una pregunta si ese es correcto o incorrecto. Tendría que ir a preguntarle a la gente en la calle ...:P "Local" är en plats och "camino" är en väg. Acabo de levantarme, y no ha tomado un café. Usualmente lo sabería. Esos son mis excusa...

Re: A tale of two contractions

This probably has to do with phonotactics or something similar...ie. It's easy to elide the /h/ in "have" In the end you're only saying /'ai.d@v/. But in "I would not, you're trying to follow the same rules as "didn't", ie. elide the /o/ in /not/. It's unnatural, at least in English, to have a /dn/ ...

Hm, sorry. I thought you should use 对 because it's a question whether it's correct or incorrect. I should go to the street and ask the locals...:P

Cuanto dinero tiene la monarquía de inglaterra? Parece muchísimo si puede pagar por este "jubilee".

How much money does the monarchy of England have? It seems like a ton if they can pay for this jubilee.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I reworked the phonology of Kranheiŋ to (attempt) to be more interesting. Additionally, I changed the way in which tense works. I hope to, in the next week or so, work into progressive verbs, as well as nouns and such so that I can begin translating the graded sentences.

Re: Can you have transitives but no intransitives?

Mandarin does something like this; a lot of verbs that you'd think would be transitive have mandatory objects. E.g., Shui4 jiao4 sleep.VERB sleep.OBJECT sleep This is a question I have because I've been studying it in Mandarin class lately. Mandarin has certain words (or particles, perhaps) that ar...

Re: Granheim

I've decided that, to make it more unique and interesting, I'm going to change quite a bit of Granheim. First and foremost, the phonology. This will be the new phonology: [p t c k q] -- <p t c k q> [n ŋ] -- <n ŋ> [ʀ] -- <r> [f s ç~x h] -- <f s x h> [ɑ i ɛ ə ɔ u] - <a i e v o u> (C)(r)V(V)(N)(FC/C) W...

Re: CBBers Photos

Honestly you don't really have to be socially-impaired to be a nerd. The part in bold is enough for me: Nerd is a derogatory slang term for a person typically described as intellectual, socially-impaired, and obsessive who spends inordinate amounts of time on unpopular or obscure activities, pursui...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

How common/rare are palatal plosives and fricatives?
Is it too unrealistic to have velar-uvular distinctions?
Also, how many fricatives would you call too many, in terms of what's realistic and commonplace?

Kranheiŋ (formerly Granheim)

Hey guys. I don't know if anyone remembers me, but back in 2010 and maybe a bit of 2011 I was actively a member of this board. I created a lang called "Roman Georgian" (Which arguably failed). I'm coming to the beginners' corner because I had never learned or used anything complex enough to be consi...
