Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Today, I thought about a language where for every segment there is only one syllable it can occur in, i.e. there are no two syllable that share a segment. A toy example would be a language that has /p t k/ and /a i u/: this would only allow the syllables /pa ti ku/. Of course one can use much more s...

Is framaž- a noun?
No. Your previous comment about it coming from "from" is closer to the mark. But that had already occurred in PG and was not any of my doing.
Is it from the adverbial meaning of this word, s.th. like 'forth, forward; away, further'?

Yes, that's possible. Another possibility is that it stays low longer.

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

I'm trying to understand how morae work. If I'm understanding it correctly, then a basic syllable such as V or CV are 1 mora, or a light syllable, while something like VV or CVV or even CVC in some languages are 2 morae, or a heavy syllable. I'm guessing this is the basis for stress in a word? What...

I can't speak for Creyeditor's conlang, or Sal's views on mine (he didn't answer my post so I don't know if he's addressing just Creyeditor or both Creyeditor and me), but I don't recall mentioning noun classes, just two distinct classes of verbs based on "egophoricity" or "proximity". You are righ...

I was also going to have /k/ be a coda, and it still does occur as a word-final coda, but is altered when it precedes /t/, so a word like /mak.ta/ becomes /mat.ta/
I really like this part [:)]

Re: Kovur Grammar - Thoughts, Questions, Comments?

Let's get some numbers into this. Let's start with a swadesh-size vocabulary. Around say 150 common nouns, and around 50 common verbs. We want to make 'statemes' out of these. How many statemes would we need? Well, at least 50, one for each verb. And then for each verb, we'd need a different versio...

Re: Kovur Grammar - Thoughts, Questions, Comments?

It would not be possible to have a language where basic transitive sentences were not composable. The number of possible agents, patients and actions is far too great - most 'situations' would never arise more than once in your lifetime, so it would be impossible to learn them. That's the whole poi...

I've been re-reading Sal's reviews in his Disworld Re-Read Project because why the hell not? I love the Discworld novels and Sal's reviews are pretty damn good.

They include actions plus things that are associated with the action. A sentence like 'the boy admires the girl' would be a single atomic lexeme. The sentence 'the woman admires the girl' would be completely different. Are there no nouns or verbs at all, or noun-like or verb-like morphemes? Like, f...

Re: Kovur Grammar - Thoughts, Questions, Comments?

What I did, am doing, plan to do, with a non-human language is to focus on situations. There is thus no deep distinction between actions and things anymore. Just because you asked for input. This information might help.
