Yes, even the name of the thread in question is "How to design a non-European phonology". Why would anyone expect it to be about anything but phonology is beyond me.

Re: Tz'airuch

This thread doesn't seem to be getting much interest. Apparently languages with clicks that aren't very well-developed are more interesting than languages with odd morphosyntax that are. But eh, most people here seem to be fixated on phoneme inventories and not care about much anything else, judgin...

Re: How did you learn the IPA?

More like a reasonable, common input method for IPA, sometimes used in its raw form due to laziness and/or technological limitations.

I'm in with

…let's see… I have zero usable conlangs, one barely complete enough to write simple sentences with, and exactly about a billion of really vague random ideas.

I think it means Old Arassenian.

Re: Guess The Language!!!

P.S. How did you know that? It's luck more than anything else. After you confirmed it's a Croisilles language, I looked at the Ethnologue's list of Croisilles languages with the intention to find some sample sentences of each language to compare with the text. Amele happens to be the first language...

Princessa, you've already stated that you don't enjoy April Fool's Day jokes. Just because you don't enjoy something doesn't mean someone else will. It may be that the joke is horribly bland and unfunny, but since you don't find any April Fool's Day jokes, your sarcastic comments don't meant much t...

Re: Old Arassenian

Is there a reason for the front vs back distinction in open vowels? It's not a pure front vs back distinction, and it's another example of */ʕ/ being funny. The parent language had three vowels, */a ə ɨ/ and relied on glides for frontness. /a/ is lone */a/, while /ɑ/ is */a/ + */ʕ/. Thanks to that,...

Old Arassenian

I guess there's no harm in describing the language I used in CBBCR VI. It gives me an excuse to actually write down the stuff instead of keeping it solely in my brain. The original reason for making Old Arassenian was to have a protolang to derive daughterlangs from. For an unknown reason I spent mo...
