Re: English Orthography Reform

I don't know if I'd say "abitrary", but I do find your vowels systematically counterintuitive. And given that you go to so much effort, I'm not sure why you retain ambiguities like your "y" standing for either /i:j/ or /jU:/, two totally different sounds. It probably goes without saying that you've...

Re: New Weekly Indo European Collablang

Isn't the orthography purely to make it easier for us to read? It's realistically not at the stage where it would be written down, let alone in the Latin alphabet.

The last word I've learned in a foreign language is ano, which evidently means "yes" in Slovak. (although upon further [careful] googling, it appears it should actually be áno)

I assure you it does not mean "no" in Spanish, however...
Context? Why would anyone think it means no in Spanish?

How would you redesign IPA?

Obviously IPA should probably be left alone since it's universally recognized, but if you could make your own version of it, what would it be like? I would use some Cyrillic letters, like ш and ж for the retroflex fricatives (I know they don't make those sounds in most languages, but it's very conve...

Re: Romanization game

Went with something a little unorthodox for this one.

/p t c k k͡p/ <p t c k w>
/s/ <s>
/m n ɲ ŋ/ <m n ñ ŋ>
/j w/ <i u>
/l/ <l>

/i ɛ/ <e ä>
/a/ <a>
/u ɔ/ <o å>

Next:

/m n ŋ/
/p b t d k ɡ q/
/f v s z ʃ ʒ ç h/
/w j/
/l ʎ/

/i y u/
/e ø o/

Re: New Weekly Indo European Collablang

Is this going to be a language isolate that exists in roughly our timeline's version of the Caucasus, or are we constructing a completely unrecognizable alternate history? I assume we'll be voting on this at some point. It won't be an isolate, though, since it'll be descended from PIE, unless there...
