Re: Kupaŋan

If the language doesn't have any fixed morphology, how can the king even verify if people are speaking the language? Because the speakers can all understand each other almost completely. The vocabulary barely varies, and it's words ARE it's morphology, in a weird way. Grammatical morphemes can be f...

Re: Kupaŋan

This language must be spoken by beings that work nothing like humans, then. The language is spoken by humans, it's just not a natlang. It's a language that was developed as an experiment by a king, the king had forced his people to speak the language. I plan to use this language to derive a family ...

Re: Grammar discussion for my conlang

You could probably just operate within the normal limits set on nominative-accusative or ergative-absolutive languages. But doesn't what grammatical features show up in a language depend more on word order, and not alignment? This is about all i know/can guess on this subject, i wish i could be mor...

A little bit about the morphological processes and noun number. Morphology Grammatical Processes Kupaŋan's morphology is not at all set in stone, and varies based off the speaker. Instead of having a morphology in the traditional sense, words are turned into grammatical morphemes with three processe...

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

Thank you, i had completely forgotten about adverbs! None of my conlangs currently use them. I'll probably divide adverbs into multiple new classes based off of usage, because plain adverbs are a bit too much of a catch-all category for me. I have been struggling to make Ngarnungwunanurla's verbs su...

I have to say i like this inventory a lot! And i really like /ʟ/, and all the other laterals, especially /ʟ̝̠̊ʷ/. I can't say anything about how realistic it is(I wouldn't know).

A few weeks ago i "discovered" pama-nyungan languages, and loved the aesthetic. I decided to tinker with a phoneme inventory based off of them, and ended up with something completely different.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay IX

Actually the tables were part of Jackk's Duban language, not Lozkazmat.

The meanings changed pretty drastically. The big handedness was my fault, it seems i messed up quite a bit when translating Duban.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

No /m/ is an interesting and noticeable thing... also, why do you use ogonek-o for /o/ wouldn't it make more sense for it to have its natural meaning and give the ogonek to schwa (in this case)? An interesting inventory, to be sure. My justification of <ǫ> for /o/ is that it once represented /õ/, a...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have radically changed one of my conlangs and renamed it Oochocreek. It's inspired by various north american languages such as Seneca, Otomi, Ojibwe, and Cherokee. Oochocreek is also somewhat inspired by Quechua.

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

I'm sorry for the double-post, it should be the last time.

What are some interesting ways to express modality? I only know of auxiliary verbs and moods, but surely there must be another method?
Edit: One more thing, are there any languages without conjunctions?
