Re: Naming Practices

I've been doing some work on the conworld of late and I have revamped the Tim Ar naming conventions. Tim Ar individuals' names can be broken down into given name + ré + patronymic + soʕ + skin group + üm + cross-skin group + ðên + locative The given name is typically a (short) nominalized sentence— ...

Re: Naming Practices

Tim Ar given names tend to be nominalized sentences, e.g. É3enghuúühé é3en khuú ü hé "he rides the wind". These are usually followed by the patronymic/matronymic particle and then the name of the same-sex parent.

Re: Reverse CBB Lexicon Building

This one is rather difficult: I am looking for the meaning of the noun that the derivation pattern ātitūrC₁V₁C₂C₁V₁C₂V₂C₃ū turns verbs into. It is composed of two morphemes: ātitūrā is a noun of undecided meaning, it is the modified noun. C₁V₁C₂C₁V₁C₂V₂C₃ā is a noun derivation stem that indicates "...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

For a while now, I've wanted to create a language with a phonology-romanization relationship à la Nortaneous—that is, you can predict the surface form from the underlying form, which is written, but there's considerable mismatch between them strictly speaking. Revisiting and revising an older projec...

Re: Speedlanging weekend V: 22th April

There are a few things I'd like to clarify as well: - your language must have at least a three-way contrast in at least some plosives and affricates. Probably a silly question, but what exactly do you mean by this? What kinds of contrasts did you have in mind? Would you consider having just /p t k/...
