Ja, nachdem mein alter Avatar, den Ossicone für mich gemacht hatte, schon länger nicht mehr funktioniert, habe ich mir gedacht: neues Forum - neuer Avatar. Aber eigentlich wäre ich schon gerne jemand, den die Leute am Rang erkennen [:D]

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

What exactly would be the criteria for identity of segments across languages? Identical phonetics (probably impossible), identically oppositions with other sounds (pretty language specific) or maybe some comparative definition of each segment? I think this is really not a trivial question.

I have a new Avatar, just as a temporary solution. What do you think? Also, does anyone remember my old avatar. I really liked it, but it seems its gone.

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

In the present day, some generativists seem to be trying to restrict the use of "linguists" I actually think I have to jump in here. It wasn't necessarily the generativists that first started this game. Some earlier paper introduced the terms B-linguists, C-linguists and D-linguists, which in itsel...

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

I want to ask for some inspiration. I have a three vowel system /a i u/, and these vowels may be stressed or unstressed (every word has at least one stressed syllable, and every third syllable is stressed), and the syllable structure is (C)V(C), though any sequence of two or even three vowels can o...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I did a preliminary family tree for the Northern Languages family in my Conworld. Sorry for not using a spoiler but they don't work for me (yet). I love language family trees. How many branches have you worked on? I have worked quite a lot on Kobardon and Omlueuet. I have sketches for most other la...

Re: phoible.org, a resource about natlang phonologies

I have cited this resource several times in discussions, it's the most complete of its kind. It is also interesting that competing analysis are presented. I am pretty sure that I added it to the old new resources thread.

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

I don't know that this necessarily has any answer, but what exactly is "the deal" with all the English words with connotations of "shininess" beginning with /gl/? We have glimmer, gleam, glow, glisten, glass, glint, glare, glitter... Obviously there's nothing inherently "shiny" about the sequence /...

Re: Spoken Language

I just rediscovered this thread [:D] Just wanted to share a tiny bit of language context information with you that has emerged since then.

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

What are the official/proper linguistic terms for other "situations" of agreement? Like, this got me thinking from what I think are called "anti-plurals" in natlangs, but these are "unofficial terms" that I use in my head, in question marks: 1. Agreement. Eg, subject-verb agreement etc 2. Disagreem...

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

I think there is a free source on Nimboran, a book by AnceauxPDF. The problem is that we do not really know if this is unrounded vowels or Japanese-style compressed rounded vowels.
