Is a system in which vowel length is affected by the length of the following morphemes realistic?
I.E:
sak+a=saka
sak+ā=skā
Yes, this looks like it would be length-induced vowel syncope.

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

In linguistic typology one can usefully distinguish two types of SOV languages in terms of their type of marking: dependent-marking has case markers to distinguish the subject and the object, which allows it to use the variant OSV word order without ambiguity. This type usually places adjectives an...

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

Is it possible or attested for a language to have word-final lenition of stops? Danish iirc. Also any language that loses final stops can be argued to be leniting them in a way. And what about the possibility that this allophonic rule could be ignored, such when a noun that normally ends in a gende...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Had my Ojibwe class, now I can ask and answer "how many..?" questions.

Aan tahkisin ashkipwaawan? (How many potatoes?)
Peshiko ashkipwaaw... (There is one potato/the potato is alone)

Can someone gloss this?

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

If this language allows robust codas, i would suggest deriving new diphthongs from the coda consonants, and then shifting these into new monophthongs. alternatively, delete weak medial consonants instead and reduce the number of syllables in such words by one. i know I was planning to have Baeba ge...

How do I turn /a ə ɨ/ into /a ɒ e ø i y ɤ o ɯ u/? I have tried many strategies but nothing seems to work to the intended effect and I am at a complete loss.

Re: Another triconsonantal project

My conlang Vrkhazhian also has a chaotizer morpheme though it's lexicalized instead of being a verb form. Vrkhazhian is like the type specimen of triconsonantal conlangs.
