Re: What did you accomplish today?

I got rid of some vowel changes that made no sense and didn't even look irregular enough to be interesting. Pronouns still have some of that mess (and I like them this way), but nouns don't.

Źilaa Ruńu [ʒiˈlaː ˈru.ɲu] is a fictional language that I've been working on pretty slowly for about half a year now. Like almost everything in this world, it's very much a WIP and whatever I post here can change later if it doesn't work anymore. That said, I'd love to get questions and feedback, e...

Re: Non-pulmonic consonants

I believe the reason they are so rare in conlangs is because a majority of conlangers speak languages that do not have non pulmonic consonants, and I suppose they tend to use phonologies they are familiar with, so as to be able to read/speak their creation. There are many features that aren't all t...

Re: Grammar discussion for my conlang

I'm also kind of new but I'll try: These languages tend to mark both the agent and the patient on the verb in transitive sentences. Intransitive verbs will mark their subject either as an agent (for active meaning) or as a patient (for stative meaning). I'll use made-up examples, assuming the langua...

Re: Grammar discussion for my conlang

What other grammatical features are common with Active-Stative languages? What are their case systems usually like? According to this , Active-Stative languages mostly use head marking instead of cases. Georgian has cases but I don't understand its alignment at all, so I don't know if it's a good e...
