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

Hello! This is my first question here. I have an idea for noun declensions that don't change the inflexional affixes of nouns (so a noun in declension 1 would take identical case markings and number markings as a noun in declension 2), but instead would affect what derivational markings a noun got ...

Re: Kôrem language

I see I still have not discussed consonant phonology much. So there are 3 plosives, 1 fricative, 3 voiced fricatives/approximants, and 2 semivowels (a lateral and a nasal). p t k <p t k> s <s> β ɹ ɣ <b r g> n l <n l> Voiced fricatives are voiced plosives after /n/ and /l/. /n/ assimilates with a fol...

Re: Kôrem language

Statives can be used as pseudo-relative clauses, because they can be modifiers of nouns.

Nos ngatit ere ronbu pa.
SG1 see<DAT> SG2 stand there
'I saw you standing there.'

Nos ngatit re ere ronob pa.
'I saw you standing up there.'

Re: Kôrem language

Statives again There is a class of lexical statives. They end in -u. They correspond to SAE adjectives. They can be as modifiers of nouns and as intransitive predicates (2). They cannot be used as nouns but a noun must be derived for that use (3). Like verbs, statives are stressed on the penultimat...

Re: Kôrem language

Renewing the verb morphology: I'l take off person agreement. The only obligatory grammatical morpheme is the voice/trigger marker. It is an infix left to the last consonant of the stem. Most verb roots are: CVC<>C. Some of the most frequent are just C<>C. Polysyllabic verbs always have the stress o...

Re: Tirbish

Neat! I am interested to see this develop! So is the inventory something like: /m n/ /p b t d k g/ /s/ /r l j w/ With /t k/ to [ s ʃ ] intervoclaically. How will you handle the so called laryngeals? Very much like that. Implosives and sibilants are phonemic in modern language, though. When it comes...

Vowels The vowel inventory is quite simple: Long vowels are the basic 5: a:, e:, i:, o:, u: <ā, ē, ī, ō, ū> Short vowels are: a, ə, ɪ, ʊ <a, e, i, u> Long vowels can only appear in open syllables. Schwa cannot appear in stressed syllables. Sort and long a and a: seem to differ only by quantity. Der...

Consonant changes PIE 'aspirated voiced' series of stops becomes plain voiced, like in Germanic. bh dh gh -> b d g The 'voiceless' series stays voiceless. p t k -> p t k The 'voiced' series is devoiced and merges with the voiceless series. b d g -> p t k Nasal + voiced stop clusters become voiced im...

There are primarily preverbless verbs like pisac 'be writing/ usually write' that can be made perfective with a preverb propisac 'write' There are also primary preverbed verb like popisac 'to sign' that form their imperfective forms from the l-participle, which is always imperfective, propisal 'he w...

Do your modifiers (adjectives and adverbs) have an equative (“as .... as”) degree of comparison?
Of course.
I think it would be something like:
X s gval glad as Y. 'X is as happy as Y.'

Ideas for a Slavic lang in Balkan: - Cases reduced to 4: nominative (accusative), dative (genitive, locative~prepositional), instrumental, vocative. - Both definite and indefinite declension (old genitives preserved as indefinite nominatives) - Neuter gender merges with Masculine (not very Balkan I ...

Re: Siglisc (Germanic lang) 4.0

Back to this old project :) I'm adding a new diphthong /ei/ as an umlauted pair of /ai/. The problem is just that the West-Germanic /i:/ -> /ai/, which also appears in Siglisc, is apparently a quite late sound change. German has umlaut pairs like haus 'house' - häuser 'houses' but nothing like that ...

Re: Esperantidos - pros and contras?

The big problem with esperanto is that almost nobody speaks it, which severely limits its utility as a language of international communication. Esperantidos have so far not succesfully addressed this problem; quite the contrary. As a conlang, everyone here would like his creation to be spoken as on...
