Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

Also a further addendum: I've decided that I'm now going to make -nyen and -ru‘ the adverbial suffixes for "into water" and "into fire, by heat" respectively, rather than the incorporated forms of "water" and "fire". This would leave only one true suppletive incorporated noun -mi‘xə "meat, flesh", ...

Re: In Other Community News...

Hey elemtilas. Glad you created this thread. I haven't been very active on the forum but this is one of the threads I always look at. There's something nice about having a "Conlanger's Daily News".

Re: First Proto-lang

/e̞ e̞ː o̞ o̞ː/ seems excessive. Why not say they're phonemically /e o/? You don't have any other mid vowels. I'm not quite sure what you are asking. Are you asking why they have a length distinction, or do you mean why do they have the little subscript beneath them? The latter. If you have no furt...

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

Okay, after a lot of consideration, I've decided to share my magic system for critiques. I wanted to move away from the standard mana system, but I think I ended up recreating it somewhat. In this conworld, there exists a plant (which for now I will call 'Arcana') that produces its own magical ener...

Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

In comparison there are no regular and productive valency-decreasing morphological processes in Asta. What strategies are used to achieve the equivalent of the English passive? "He was killed." or "The field was burned down." Topic-prominence, indefinite pronouns, ergativity. Oh, right, I forgot As...

Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

Yay, an Asta thread! I had an idea of some of this due to translating your torch but a lot of it is new, as well.

I like the inventory, and I like your cluster resolution rules (? metathesis and palatalization).

It's common for coda palatals to be realized with a palatal onglide in languages that have them.
...and/or be preceded by a front vowel anyway.

I've made a conlang thread here for the first time in ages for my IE language, currently there's phonology and a stream-of-consciousness post on o-stem nouns.
Will there be a thread on Asta?
[+1] After translating from Asta for the relay, I am interested in knowing more. It's a fun language.

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: CBB Conlang Relay X

I am a bit late with my torch. I have translated Frislander's text and prepared a Nakarian gloss. However, I need to turn that into an actual Nakarian text and write the language description. I hope to be done tomorrow.

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 ...
