The nasal coloration phenomenon is amazing. Quite South American feeling.
I definitely agree. I don't think I've seen anything quite like it in a conlang before!

Fractions & Multipliers Fractions Fractions are formed similar to how they are in Chinese and Japanese, which is almost the opposite of how they are formed in English.

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

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'...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

I would say it might be typologically "odd" in the region the language is spoken, but I honestly don't know how other Chamic languages or non-Chamic languages in the area surrounding the Ởnh·Vú-speaking population handle this sort of thing. Is there anything other than the use of it alongside the d...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

So if alienable possession only needs a one-syllable adposition, inalienable possession should need nothing at all, I think; and, in many languages, it doesn’t need anything except to position the possessor next to the possession. Typically the possessor of an inalienable is marked with no possessi...

I don’t think that’s how the alienable vs inalienable opposition works IRL mostly.
What is unnatural in the system of the lang, then?
I'm not sure either considering other East Asian languages have similar systems

Alienable Nouns vs. Inalienable Nouns Similar to Chinese, Korean, and Japanese, Ởnh·Vú makes a vague distinction between alienable nouns and inalienable nouns Alienable Nouns The vast majority of nouns are alienable and as a result simply use the preposition 𧶮 (Mờ) to connect the possessor and the ...

Re: Islogian

Aren’t possessed nouns always definite anyway? as i inderstand it they don’t need any additional marking to show definiteness. Am I wrong? From what I could see in similar languages like Romanian that seems to be the case. I originally had the possessed nouns always preceded by the definite article...
