Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

Torch received! No worries at all! This will probably take me a little while as well, since I have 3 exams this week. Have you decided what language you will be using? I wanted to try using an a priori language I've had in mind for a while, but I'm still working on its phonotactics, so probably som...

What's the boundary between polysynthetic and highly agglutinative? Like, when does a language start being polysynthetic?

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

It's also worth noting they Gothic <b> is also understood to alternate between /b~β/ but I dont know how exact that conclusion was arrived at. Isn't it because <b> alternates with <f> in some cases, and that's been interpreted as the [β] allophone of /b/ devoicing? I don't have time at the moment t...

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

I did actually think /b/ was the original. It's written in reconstructions. In the reconstruction of Proto-Germanic, the letters * b , * d , and * g don't always represent the reconstructed sounds *[ b], *[d], and *[g]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Germanic_language#Consonants https://en.wik...

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