Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

[...] Well,, looks like I've rambled a bit. Sorry. You don't have to apologise, thank you very much for that detailed answer! I think I learnt something new about vowels and phonemic inventories and I am going to work a bit more on my inventories (especially the vowels) in the next few day. Going t...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

/a ɛ e i y u ɔ o/ <a e é i y u o ó> I am always a bit uncreative when it comes to the vowels haha. I don't know yet whether I am going to work with this one.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have been working on filling my new Lexicon of Sevòn today. I have already created some derivational morphemes, so I can create words that are related to already existing ones. For example I have lîs ("silver") and lîsnèda ("silvery"), where the suffix -nèda indicates "looking/seeming similar to s...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Today I worked on a phonology for the restart of one of my prior conlangs, Sevòn. When I first created Sevòn I had way too many phonemes, especially for the vowels/monophthongs. Besides, there were some other features I do not like anymore. So I have been toying with the thought of giving that conla...

I know a few words in Russian as well as some declension and conjugation rules (but I can't memorize the genitive plural and the instrumental that well).
