Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

Hi Everyone,

I’d like to apologise for the delay. I’ve been down with a stubborn flu, but I am working on the torch when I can. I hope to have it done and passed on in the next few days.

Re: Overview of Sint Verbal Morphology + Questions

I really like this, not least because of the heavily Algonquian feel, and would like to read and comment on it properly, but I happen to be a) ill b) working on the relay torch, so it will have to wait a bit.

Re: Project Limestone - Esseintial Scratchings

Limestone Reborn! It’s been a while since I posted in this poor old neglected thread.

Therefore, without further ado, let’s take a look at what Limestone looks like now...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

For some reason, and against my better judgment, I’m working on Apwapɨrɨng again. I’m supposed to be getting Limestone ready for the relay, but I seemingly have no control over my mind.

I've made a conlang thread here for the first time in ages for my IE language, currently there's phonology and a stream-of-consciousness post on o-stem nouns.
Will there be a thread on Asta?

Do you ever post something in your conlang thread and then immediately change your mind about it? Is it possible to be a conlanger and be as indecisive as I am?

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

On my own note, what are good ways to derive /l/ (or other laterals) in a phonology that doesn't have it. I figure coronals would be a good place to start, but am not sure in what environments this would be likely to happen. * put this in there to stop bbcode hopefully it works In Hong Kong Cantone...

Re: I'd Like to See Phonetic Irish

I don't think Salmoneus was joking. As you said yourself, the rules of Irish spelling are very systematic, so why can't you create your own phonetic spelling system? I am of course guessing here, but the reason he is asking might be because creating his own spelling would require quite a lot of tim...

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

What's the boundary between polysynthetic and highly agglutinative? Like, when does a language start being polysynthetic? Agglutination is a characteristic of languages that stack affixes with relatively clear-cut functions. In a prototypical agglutinative language, each affix codes for one grammat...

Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

I’ll be following this, for sure. As for what I’d like to see next, I’m going to be predictable and ask for nominal morphology. I’m especially interested in broken plurals and whether the formation of plurals is relatively systematic according to the phonetic shape of the singular noun.
