Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

OK, diachronic sketch time! *p *t̪ *t *c *k *m *n̪ *n *ɲ *ŋ *w *ɹ *j *i *iː *u *uː *a *aː Syllable structure was CV(n), where *n assimilated to the POA of a following plosive. The apical consonants *t, *n and *ɹ did not occur word-initially, and *t likely had a flapped allophone when occurring as a ...

Re: How would you redesign IPA?

I would shift /æ/ and /a/ so that they are now the true open-front and open-mid vowels rather than the stupid English-centric situation we have now.

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

I hate to do this, but: What effects can consonants at POAs further back in the mouth than velar (in other words: uvulars, pharyngeals/epiglottals, and glottals) have on surrounding vowels? I know, for instance, that uvulars can cause lowering or backing, and I believe I've heard that pharyngeals c...

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

In natural speech though (outside of highly formal RP) I don't think anyone pronounce the coda in words like "strengths" with all 4 consonants. My natural pronunciation actually reduces it to something very like [st͡ʃɹɛŋs]. However, if you're looking for languages which definitely have more complex ...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Here's a little diachronic phonology I've cooked up somewhat inspired by Samic. *i *u *ē *ea *ō *oa *a~ā Only *i, *u and *a occur in non-initial syllables, and *a does not occur in initial syllables, therefore *ā and *a are in complementary distribution and should be considered as allophones. And th...

I say b/c; keep it on as a habitual , with the later possibility of having it become the unmarked present, maybe even losing the IE present altogether (and if you think this is far-fetched, trust me it's nothing compared to what's gone on in Algonquian). Now that's an interesting suggestion! I have...

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

Alamblak, a language of Papua New Guinea, according to Steven B. Jackson, associates long and tall things with the masculine gender and round and short things with the feminine gender. This is actually a crosslinguistic tendency. Khoekhoegowab does something similar for example. In fact this is a g...
