Re: What did you accomplish today?

Made a new language called Kasseet Dlogl [kæs.se.jet dˡɔgᶫ], it is related to my other conlang Swdo . /m n nˡ ŋ ŋᶫ/ /p b t d tˡ dˡ k g kᶫ gᶫ/ /s ɬ~l x ʟ̝̊~ʟ/ (another dialect has /θ ð θˡ ðˡ ʃ ʒ ɬ ɮ/) Not only does it have vowel harmony but it also has lateral harmony: NOM: /de/ "man" ACC: /deæs/ [de...

Does anybody know where I can find a grammar on specifically Oji-Cree/Severn Ojibwe/Anishininiimowin?

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

/m n nˡ ŋ ŋᶫ/ /p b t d tˡ dˡ k g kᶫ gᶫ/ /l ʟ/ /θ θˡ ʃ ɬ h/ /v ð ðˡ/ /j/ Hmm, I really like that. Though I ended up with: /m n nˡ ŋ ŋᶫ/ /p b t d tˡ dˡ k g kᶫ gᶫ/ /s ɬ~l x ʟ̝̊~ʟ/ Is there a phonetic difference between /sˡ/ and /ɬ/? I intend that /tˡ/ is simply the stop equivalent of /ɬ/ and not simpl...

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

Haven't come up with that yet since vowel systems are difficult for me to come up with that aren't some variation of Latin or /a e i o u/ Maybe?: /e ʊ/ /æ ɔ/ That's fair. I asked because if you were planning on having /y/ or /ɯ/, I would have suggested adding /ɥ/ or /ɰ/ to the consonant inventory, ...

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

I need suggestions for fricatives and/or approximants that might compliment this sound inventory (or at least not look out of place): /m n nˡ ŋ ŋᶫ/ /p b t d tˡ dˡ k g kᶫ gᶫ/ /l ʟ/ I suppose I can always fall back on /f s x w j/, but I've done that for most/all of my conlangs and I'm looking for some...

Re: Help deriving verbs from onomatopeia

I though to look at English onomatopoeia but that doesn’t fit my language’s syllable structure. It also only reflects one potential possibility for each sound. Like how English has meow for cat but Japanese has nyan. Of course, one could also make stem-initial (cf. vavoom) or -coda (cf. ratatat), re...

Help deriving verbs from onomatopeia

I decided it would be a neat idea for an ancient language to have a large number of verbs be derived from onomatopeia. I need some ideas for what verbs could from what onomatopeia. For example, I have: pǔy- /pu:j˨˥/ to squeeze, from the sound of air escaping the mouth when being crushed by something...

So I have the following vowel progressions based on syllable openness or closeness: Open syllables: /a/ > /æ:/ > /æ:/ > /æ/ > /a/ /a:/ > /ɑ:/ > /ɑ:/ > /ɑ/ > /a/ /e/ > /ɛ:/ > /ɛ:/ > /ɛ/ > /e/ /e:/ > /e:/ > /ɪ:/ > /ɪ/ > /i/ /i/ > /ɪ:/ > /ɪ:/ > /ɪ/ > /i/ /i:/ > /i:/ > /əj/ > /əj/ > /aj/ /o/ > /ɔ:/ > /ɔ...

Re: alternate ways to say "tribal fantasy"

I fear this might be split into another thread even though I don't think it's worth being its own thing. It may be 'usual', but it's also factually unimpeachable - everywhere else WAS uncivilized and violent. This is factually impeachable. The actual historical, anthropological, and archaeological e...

Re: alternate ways to say "tribal fantasy"

So it was claimed that it's okay to colonize Papua/Africa/etc because they are just spear-chucking, constantly warring societies that would pillage, rape and kill each other if the Europeans would not pacify them. Which is kind of ironic if we look at European history. Well, factually speaking, the...

Re: alternate ways to say "tribal fantasy"

Stonepunk is an actual subgenre now, along with Bronzepunk and Plaguepunk. And Woodpunk, Ironpunk, Steelpunk, etc.
Maybe the conworld which Vrkhazh is found in would be an ironpunk world.

Re: I'd Like to See Phonetic Irish

Well I also know that <aoi> like in Caoimhin is a velarized /ii/. Actually now that I think about it I could see how <ao> becomes a velarized /ii/ if the blackness of the /o/ shifted to the consonant and /a/ would have become a schwa and get deleted.
