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

Apparently in Northern and Southern Vietnamese, the word for that is "đó", while in Central Vietnam it is "tê". Are there any known historical reasons for this development? It seems very strange to me for a dialect to differ that extremely from the dialects both above and below it without there bein...

Re: ယြး語/Yr̄ Phāsā

You're right and i'm changing it so that the current system comes from the Northeast Yr̄, the Dáw Yr̄, who adapted Daoism to the Theraveda Buddhism that the majority of Yr̄ follow, to form a syncratism. They would often write with some Hanzi inserted, but had an imperfect knowledge of Hanzi, so unt...

Re: ယြး語/Yr̄ Phāsā

This looks really cool so far. I'm not sure how likely it'd be though for a mixed Hanzi script to develop in just over 80 years though. Are there any irl instances of the Communist Party of China forcing hanzi on non-Sinitic languages?

What is even more confusing, especially for a lot of German students of English:

Children in Germany normally don't know the word "Kapital" when they hear about capital first.
And I'm sure :eng: capitol ~ :deu: Kapitol makes it even more confusing

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Traditional Romanization System Prior to a major spelling reform, Ởnh·Vú's romanization system was far less consistent and essentially just applied the rules of Vietnamese spelling to fit the language. Here's an overview of the differences between the traditional romanization and the modern one. In...

Oh, sorry, I might have misspoke. What I meant, basically, was that while Ởnh·Vú has a specific way of handling alienable vs. inalienable possession (with two different monosyllabic prepositions), I can't say whether any of the surrounding languages do the same thing, so can't say whether what Ởnh·...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

You call the morpheme a preposition but it seems to appear between the possessor and the possessed. Which of them forms the PP or is [N P N] a strict construction? I suppose it could be called a particle instead. Mờ always appears between the possessor and the possessed similar to 's in English. I'...
