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?

Re: Random ideas: Morphosyntax

So i've been working on my 3Cons language and had an idea for nouns and pronouns. Nouns are inherently plural, and are marked for the singular. But pronouns are inherently singular and marked for the plural. Here is another idea i had for an alignment where S = R (which i'll call 1), A = T (which i'...

Maybe a Hangul-like system could work as well? Every syllable would have its own character but you only need to create 96 pieces that can be combined.
Yeah i'll do that, but i'll make a syllabary for an older version of the language.

If you change it to (C)V(C) a syllabary would definitely be a great idea for it!
I think i will, thanks! I'm not sure how i'll stay sane while creating over 800 characters.

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

What type of script would work best for my conlang, Abʘa? It has 96 phonemes, 10 vowels and 86 consonants. I would rather not use a logography. What syllable structure does it have? If it's relatively simple, I think a syllabary could be interesting to use (C)(C)(C)(C)(V)(C), though anything beyond...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

A consonant inventory i thought of,

/n/
/p b t d k g q ʔ/
/t͡ʃ/
/w f v/
/ʀˡ ʀˡˡ/
/l ɬ-ɮ/

/ʀˡ/ is more accurately described as a trilled [ʟ̠], while /ʀˡˡ/ is more accurately described as a trilled [ʟ̠͡l]. I'm thinking of removing /t͡ʃ/.

Re: Yay or Nay?

No. With so many phonemes, your language already sounds a bit kitchen-sinky. Yeah, ok, i'd say thats pretty fair. I'm not too worried about being kitchen-sinky though. I'm trying to make the grammar pretty realistic, to make up for the insane phonology. And i'm thinking of geting rid of all the imp...
