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

I'm working on a conlang, but I need some natlang examples for a certain feature. I plan on have palatals, particularly the /ɲ/, occurring in the coda position. Honestly, I have a hard time pronouncing it when it follows an onset consonant. Do you have any natlang recordings of such a thing being s...

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

What are some sources from which to derive a comparative particle or conjunction, like English “than”? If you're asking about possible morphemes that could receive that meaning, a frequent one is "as, like". Also, if you have suppletive comparative forms for a very common adjective (something like ...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I don’t get why the same person does my orthographies and I have to redo them because they are so not cool looking. If you're talking about me, the Romanization game is just a game, not a place to go to have someone else come up with a "cool looking" orthography for you. When I'm playing the game i...

Vowels: /a ɛ e i ɔ o u/ (as stan...

Thanks to all for the interest!

I'll start making the relay queue soon. If you can't participate at some time during the relay, do tell me what dates you're unavailable so I can adjust the queue accordingly.

New sign-ups are still welcome.
I'll be unavailable on Oct 4-7.

Re: Sadhín: A Biconsonantal Artlang

Having sh is typologically weird - even more so in the absence of voiceless aspirated stops. Is it a conscious choice against naturalism?
