Re: What did you accomplish today?

I now have conjugations for verbs in Proto-Bolu-Swdo, for example: shoro-khoyo "to speak" shoro-čhu "speak to me" shoro-häg "speak to you" shoro-ëšthä "speak to them" shoro-äpkä-khoyo "to profess" shoro-čhu-äpkä "profess to me" shoro-häg-äpkä "profess to you" shoro-ëšthä-äpkä "profess to them" shoro...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I divided the continent of Ashrna into its language families. My new language family, Bolu-Swto is a member of the Ashrnic language family.

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

Thanks, this is quite helpful. I will probably mix and match these suggestions as there is a good deal of changes I like. Though I'm surprised it requires so little sound changes, that these two languages could be directly related. Vowels nasalise in some environment I think I will play with rhinogl...

Those sound changes look great, thanks.
I think maybe both should have rounding harmony then.

Could ya'll do me a favour and help me come up with a Proto-Language phonology that would connect these two language?: Bolu /i iː y yː/ /e eː ø øː/ /a aː ɒ ɒː/ /m n ɳ/ /p pʰ t tʰ k kʰ q qʰ/ /ʈʂ ʈʂʰ/ /s sʰ ʂ ʂʰ χ/ /l j w/ Swto /ɲ̍ ɲ̍ʷ ŋ̍ ŋ̍ʷ/ <- these behave like vowels /i y ɯ u/ /a ɒ/ /m n ɲ ŋ/ /p p...

What would the historical cause for inverse voicing be?
I see final devoicing is very common, but what causes the final voicing?
Probably the same ones as Dholuo.

Re: Yay or Nay?

Should my conlang use reflexive and reciprocal pronouns or stick with verbal prefixes? Why not both? Perhaps the verbal prefixes are mandatory, but the pronouns are used for emphasis or in special situations or phrases that don't have verb? Or in a different clause? The verbal prefixes would come f...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Should my conlang use reflexive and reciprocal pronouns or stick with verbal prefixes? Well there are some interesting things you can do with reflexives to do with using them across cause boundaries, for example perhaps to do with logophoricity, like "John said himself killed his uncle" vs. "John s...

My conlang Vrkhazhian has a commissive mood, indicated by the prefix šə-:

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I originally indicated the construct state for biconsonantal roots through the pattern ʾeCC, but this created too many illegal consonant clusters so now Vrkhazhian indicates it with the removal of the gender endings and inverse voicing of the final consonant: šada "mouth" > šat "mouth-of" šuḳi "king...

Re: Thandazhi (1st Triconsonantal Conlang)

Have to keep in mind that these 2con roots were a minority compared to already extant 3con roots.

Easy way to get a 3con system is to use vowel-specific umlauts and do vowel syncope and some added vowel epenthesis.

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

I like that. And then there is the construct state, which is made through using a disfix. One language family will not have it and that is the one that diverged from Old Proto-Takshian while the ones that diverged from New Proto-Takshian develop it and these are also the languages that develop the s...

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

I have two questions: 1) The agent noun in my conlang has CuCC- as the form in the governed state, how do I justify it having the suppleted form CaCkaC as the construct state? Additional information is that CuCC- is derived from root plus u-suffix while CaCkaC is derived from root plus Vka-infix. 2)...
