Re: What did you accomplish today?

Assigned glyphs to private use codes and added diacritics to indicate palatalization along with the standard vowel diacritics:

Re: Yay or Nay?

yay or nay Should Onschen also have palatolabialization so that the phoneme inventory is something like this?: /a e ẽː o õː i u/ /ai̯ ei̯ ẽi̯ oi̯ õi̯/ /m n nʲ nᶣ/ /p b t tʲ tᶣ d dʲ dᶣ k kʲ kᶣ g gʲ gᶣ/ /t͡s t͡sʲ t͡sᶣ d͡z d͡zʲ d͡zᶣ/ /f s sʲ sᶣ x xʲ xᶣ/ /l lʲ lᶣ r rʲ rᶣ j ɥ/ /ǀ ǁ ǂ/ noixatee paleasou н...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I thought it would be possible to get a B.Sc in Anthropology at my uni, but it looks like I'd need Advanced Functions 12U to switch to that program.
I don't know if a B.A would still let me do fieldwork science or if it's more for like teaching and shit.

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

Whether English-4 "counts" as a conlang, I don't know. It includes invented words and invented constraints on words throughout, but it borrows the entire vocabulary and deep grammar of English, and I did not have to be a scholar of the history of English development to create it. If people started ...

To make sure I understand: you are saying it beyond the abilities of conlangers to make a language that has the degree of shared features with antecedent languages that Hebrew shares with the known languages that preceeded it historically. Theoretically a conlanger could create an a posteriori lang...

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

I would land on betting that Hebrew is a conlang, but not bet life savings. It really is the case that the Tanakh is a natural spoken language (Biblical Hebrew) put into words on a page. Whatever sort of puzzling oddities are found in the text cannot be used to support the idea that the language is...

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

Why would nouns be of more diverse lengths than verbs in Hebrew? I don't really have an answer today. For me the difference between the diversity of lengths for nouns and verbs highlights the oddness of ultra regularity within one grammatical class of words (verbs). It's attested and normal for som...

I came up with something like this: Thanks, you always deliver. I wonder if high vowels can be derived from non-high, hetero-organic vowel clusters like /a.e/ and /o.ø/ too.

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

Are you saying Arabic has zero biconsonantal or quad or 5- consonant roots? (Not doubting, just clarifying to make sure we're communicating). Oh, it does and probably as many as Hebrew or more or less. But you said how plausible it is for there to be a oral language with a majority of words with on...

Still wondering though if it's plausible that in an oral culture there could be so many spoken words with three consonants and so few with any other number that you could set out to write an epic tale touching on creation, sex, slavery, nation building, clashing of cultures, ethics, arguments, food...

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

4. Variability. I might not have expressed this clearly. What I'm asking is, if you constraining yourself to write only with 3-letter verbs, would you expect to be able to capture all the variability in ordinary speech in a culture, given that some spoken verbs are likely to be pronounced with 4, 5...

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

How might I get this vowel inventory:

Code: Select all

/a e ẽː i o õː u/
/ʲa ʲe ʲẽː ʲi ʲo ʲõː ʲu/
/ai̯ ei̯ ẽi̯ oi̯ õi̯/
/ʲai̯ ʲei̯ ʲẽi̯ ʲoi̯ ʲõi̯/
From this?:

Code: Select all

/a e~i ø~y o~u ɤ~ɯ/
I've got ideas but I'm always looking for something I've not thought of. I know it would involve some vowel coalescence.

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

Does it also explain why single-consonant words would expand upwards to the identical form that longer words have expanded downwards towards? Vowel breaking might, or compounding with other words. Would it be expected that all verbs, say, naturally converge to 3 letters in the root? No, they would ...

When I said the planet was earth for all intents and purposes, that also means the time it takes for the planet to travel around the sun is also the exact same.

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

Well, basic googling shows that yes, 1:3:6 resonances are possible, but looking at the articles they seem to mean the opposite way around (i.e. those numbers being frequencies rather than periods). That would mean, in terms of periods, 1:2:6. That is, the inner moons are an octave apart, while the ...

Re: (changed forum) Is Hebrew a Conlang?

Thanks. From what you sent it says that Proto-Semitic is "hypothetical," so it sounds like it does not provide a clear way to check the size of any spelling or grammar gaps between Torah Hebrew and antecedent languages. It's a reconstruction based on comparing words and grammar between the Semitic ...
