Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

OK, adverbial suffixes! These are a somewhat open-ended class, so I'll only discuss a few of them, and likely in the future I'll create even more. Firstly there is the distributive -pan, which normally is a true distributive, but can also have some interesting semantic effects with certain verbs. ‘i...

Re: Frislander's IE-lang scratchpad

OK, some pronouns. Pronouns are clearly much reduced in terms of case-marking vis-à-vis nouns: they only really distinguish nominative, dative and instrumental. Genitive enclitic pronouns have already become possessive affixes, and there is also a set of direct object clitics (derived from the non-t...

Re: Frislander's IE-lang scratchpad

So before I go onto pronouns, I've been thinking ahead a little to the verbs. I'm currently considering an Arapaho/Tocharian-type shift of the unmarked present indicative to a "non-affirmative" context, used with negatives and other things, while the derive present in *-ye/o- comes to mark the new p...

/e̞ e̞ː o̞ o̞ː/ seems excessive. Why not say they're phonemically /e o/? You don't have any other mid vowels.

The subscript.

Re: Frislander's IE-lang scratchpad

OK, it's time for some adjectives damnit! I'm gonna assume that the late-PIE three-gender system is still operative. As in IE, adjectives follow nominal inflection, with the simplest type being o-stem for masculine/neuter and eH 2 -stem for feminine, like so, taking nəw "new" as our example: Singula...

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

You do make some good points Sal, such that I am prepared to revise my statement: in so far as the internal workings of language are to some extent impossible to directly observe on a mental level, I contend that the models with the most explanatory power are ones which work from a mainly cognitive ...
