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

Does a language with polypersonal agreement need to mark plurality in them to be naturalistic? Are there attested languages with polypersonal agreement that mark only person and not number?

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

but I recall how Ahzoh's Vrkhazhian conculture had a lot of macabre fascination with death (at least in the past, I'm not sure if he's changed it since). No, not in the same way. The Empire of Vrkhazh is now a lot like India; the people don't all believe the same things, though there are some key b...

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

What are some ways for a language to develop lateral vowels? From what I can tell, either they can't or haven't developed in any natlang, or I've misunderstood the term. I had to google it, but I can only find it in two contexts, 1) as a synonym for "front vowels" used predominantly amongst singing...

I don't think it would be weird, though perhaps the Inuit words would be more prestige.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have decided upon a set of phonotactics that I think truly reflects the character of Onschen. The basic syllable structure of a word is (C)(C)V(C). The onset of a syllable can be null, any consonant, or the clusters сц, шч, сл, слі, хл, or xлі. The nucleus is always a vowel. The coda of a syllable...

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

What consonant clusters can I derive these three clicks /ǀ ǁ ǂ/ from?

At the present, I've got:
/ǀ/ < /t̪k/
/ǁ/ < /t̪l/ or /t̪ˡk/
/ǂ/ < /t̪ʲk t̪ʲkʲ t̪kʲ/

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

I tried those three you suggested and they're too big to work, especially at an angle. Angular now seems like a requirement too otherwise it would look out of place. However I think I have found a solution.

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

To save on the number of glyphs, maybe I should use the diagonal line under Ka to indicate voicing instead?

Edit:
I went and did it anyways.

This looks marvelous! Very aesthetically pleasing.
As for new glyph shapes, are you are actively avoiding reflections of existing ones?
Yes, actively avoiding mere reflections of the letters.

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...
