Nice [:)] So Onhvu is a verb framing language? Definitely. Although it does still have a fair share of prepositions. Also, could you remind us how these verbs are used in serial verb constructions?

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

I've got an idea for a vowel system, but I'm not sure it's naturalistic. Basically, each vowel can be either heavy or light. The first heavy syllable (or first light syllable if their aren't any heavy ones) gets stressed. For example, take these made up words (in which heavy vowels are marked with ...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

起 (Kí)- Start/Begin/About To This is another very common Sinic word used in Ởnh·Vú. When used on its own it appears before a verb, and gives it the meaning of either starting/beginning to do something or being about to do something. Two cases where this verb is very important are when occurring bef...

I’m about to cook some bistec de ribeye de res. Isn’t “de res” redundant? Isn’t all bistec automatically de res? Googling around it seems that bistec usually refers to beef but has been extended to other steaks. You can easily find recipes online for bistec de cerdo and bistec de pollo. I'm not sur...

Brieftasche was actually the word my German textbooks used for wallet. It was only later that I learned no one uses it and Portemonnaie is the main word for wallet now.
