Re: What did you accomplish today?

I fixed the verbal paradigms in my semitic language! They all had bad etymologies, malformances, and arbitrary irregularities that have been completely resolved! They're still a bit weird, but in good, justifiably semitic ways.

Re: Phonology and Topic List

You posted this at quite the auspicious time, I was working on the second nominals post! PHONOLOGY OF THE NOBLE SPEECH Are the affricates more like [d͡zz d͡ʒʒ] or [dd͡z dd͡ʒ]? Can any consonant be geminated? Is there anything you'd consider notable about the language's prosody? The affricates are mo...

Re: alternate ways to say "tribal fantasy"

Rock Stick Bone? Stone Stick Bone? In my journal, I've referred to stories/films like The Dark Crystal , as a kind of Rock,Stick & Bone fantasy. I've also referred to the Dark Ages of my conworld Tirga as the Age of Stone, Stick & Bone. :wat: That's great. I just wanted to comment on how perfect th...

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...

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: 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...
