Re: New conlang Zluflĕrpye

Someone was asking about the numbers in the language... here are the numbers from one to ten, in order.
Now, wut, yirś, rof, vyaf, skis, nĕves, tye, nyan, net.

Surprised no one's figured out what this language really is yet... [xP] ....ahahaH

New conlang Zluflĕrpye

This is a new experimental conlang I’m working on called Zluflĕrpye. It has a fairly similar phonology to West Germanic and Scandinavian languages, but it has some experimental grammatical features. Word order is OVS, adjectives follow nouns they modify, and inflections are determined by preposition...

Conlang text-to-speech

I've been experimenting with using natlang text-to-speech readers to hear my conlang in a computer voice. I'm not aware of any natlang with the exact same phonology and orthography as mine (abdefghijkmoprstuxz' with e:[ɛ~ɪ̯], h:[x] i:[i~ɪ̯], j:[ʒ], u:[u~w], x:[ʃ], ':[ʔ], otherwise IPA equivalent), b...

http://mbrsart.com/audio/pal_lab.mp3 I hope this is sufficient. Wow, wonderful audio! Thanks mbrsart, that really does help.

Re: Correct IPA for a certain fricative

hadad, thanks for your video. I can hear a subtle difference when you pronounce the two of them carefully, but it still sounds like it would be hard to differentiate them in fast speech, almost like what Systemzwang was saying...

Re: Correct IPA for a certain fricative

Concerning articulation, [ɸʲ] has a tighter constriction at the lips, and a less tight constriction at the hard palate, while [çʷ] has a less tight construction at lips, and a tighter constriction at the hard palate. Hmm... I agree with you on the theory of how they should be articulated based on I...

Correct IPA for a certain fricative

Is there a difference between a palatalized bilabial fricative (ɸʲ) and a labialized palatal (çʷ), or are these considered the same sound? I'm considering using something like this in a conlang, but I haven't been able to find much info about these fricatives or their voiced counterparts in natlangs...

Re: Pretty little girl's school

I know of at least one natlang that could solve all the problems, and that would be Latin. For one thing, the adjective pretty “bellus/a/um” Can you think of a situation where there's ambiguity between the adjective "bellum" and the noun "bellum"? Only to the extent that war and beauty are mentione...

Re: Pretty little girl's school

I'd say the ambiguity of “pretty little girl’s school” in English comes from several issues. First, it’s unclear which of the nouns “little” is modifying – the girl or the school. Second, it’s unclear if “pretty” is an adjective synonymous with “attractive”/“comely”/etc. or if it’s an adverb synonym...
