Re: Yay or Nay?

Sorry for taking so long to respond here. Thank you all for your input! It was very helpful! I remember.

I guess it might have been unclear, but the unfortunate coincidence I was trying to point to was the English word that “faku” sounds like.
Faku? Not paku?
"faku" would have been an intermediate stage between "paku" and "haku".

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I've been playing around with a phonology for a new analytic language. And I've stolen a lot of the inventory from Mandarin. It's got a little ... velar? I'm also having some big trouble figuring out how to implement tones, because I can't actually consistently enunciate contour tones. /m, n, ŋ/ /p...

Alrighty! Do you know what conlang you'll be using, Shimo?
Almost certainly Visigothic, since it's currently my most developed language (if only because it's a posteriori).

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

Is there a term for an inflectional paradigm that is a composite of two previously independent paradigms? Like in Latin where the accusative plural from one declension is borrowed into another. Basically the opposite of syncretism .... The idea is to preserve differences that would normally be erod...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I absolutely am not looking for anything diachronically related or a posteriori . Just a language that gets at a somewhat Germanic aesthetic. I apologize if there was any confusion. Also, I realize that this will in no way be something anyone could confuse for German and don't really want it to be....

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

So, my question is this: How did the phonemic distinction between two rhotic consonants found in many Iberian Romance languages arise? Well it kind of exists in Italian as well as [r] is more often than not pronounced as /ɾ/ while [rː] remains pronounced as /rː/. Iberian languages originally contra...

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

To avoid getting burnt out on revising Project Ypsilon, I've been taking breaks from working on that language and revisiting Visigothic as well. I want to make it feel less like Spanish, so I've been looking at other Iberian Romance languages as well. As I've been doing this, I've been reminded of t...
