Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

I like it. It has a Maltese-Somali feel in the alphabet. And maybe you should translate the Tower Of Babel, which would be great to compare with the other Semitic language versions. Oh that's a very good idea, thank you for suggesting! I will get on that after I've done the commissive statements. I...

Diachronically modern hebrew in .... The Caucasus? Well wherever it is, its wonderful! Actually, in Pakistan. The protolanguage was a very Aramaic influenced dialect of Hebrew, and it has words from Dravidian, Iranian, Elamite and possible relatives of Burashaski Oh well then there's a slight chron...

Re: I'd Like to See Phonetic Irish

I don't think Salmoneus was joking. As you said yourself, the rules of Irish spelling are very systematic, so why can't you create your own phonetic spelling system? I am of course guessing here, but the reason he is asking might be because creating his own spelling would require quite a lot of tim...

Re: I'd Like to See Phonetic Irish

Would it be possible for someone to take a fairly long irish text and try their best spell it pseudo phonetically, using the entire latin alphabet? I would like to see irish as it is and even though I'm told the spelling is very systematic its just . . . . So obtuse. I've been spoiled by welsh. You...

Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

I really like the phonation chain shift! Is that kind of change attested in any Semitic natlangs? Not to my knowledge, though Ge'ez tends to borrow emphatic roots from other semitic languages that pharyngealize the emphatic consonants by replacing the emphatic consonants with voiced ones e.g. Qaṭal...

Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

I am afraid that the thread title might be bugged in the "front page" section so I am posting this message BUT it would be kinda silly to post a message with no content so I will translate the first of the comissive statements, just as a teaser of morphology, with gloss and IPA.

Re: Biblical Hebrew

Why not just use a romanization or the script and just let people choose how they pronounce it? That's how my class worked. Hell, the rabbi didn't even attempt a historical pronunciation himself (he was north american), he was fond of some of ours though. Ultimately conlangers and linguists are gonn...

Re: Alternatives to "Blood" relation?

Sort of mammal-chauvinist (or mammary-chauvinist?) but 'sucklemates'? Thinking of both Romulus & Remus & whatever whelpkins they had, and also Mowgli & Grey Brother and all the others. Sucklage and foster-sucklage could be an alternative to "blood" relation. ----------------------------------------...
