So… I just turned 21, which feels a little weird, but also, of course, completely normal at the same time.
I'm not sure on time differences, but happy birthday! Welcome to "you're basically an adult now" [:D]

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

How strange is this, especially with the unpaired glottal phoneme? The fact that there's no phonemic voiced counterpart to /h/ is the exact opposite of strange. In fact it's the least weird thing about the whole inventory. I don't think it's unreasonable to have through-going lention, however I wou...

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

I hope this is the right place to ask. Anyway, Is there a way to delete an old thread? I made one for my conlang Źilaa Ruńu long ago, then realized it was far from ready for presenting. Then I didn't post anything and what little is there is mostly not relevant anymore (I'm still working on that pr...

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

I'm working on my first real conlang, and I was wondering if my consonant inventory seemed reasonable. It's a language for my own personal brand of orcs. I know labials are extremely common in natlangs, but I've decided not to use any both for a distinct style and because they're harder to pronounc...

Re: Arabic Dialects Thread

Question: Is the vowel epenthesis mentioned by Davush universally applied, or is it applied at the phrase level, e.g. if /wlkbi:r/ were preceded by a word ending in, say, /a/, would /wlkb/ necessarily be broken up?

Re: I'd Like to See Phonetic Irish

To a point, might this end up looking a bit like Manx, especially since you've been spoilt by Welsh?

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

Is it possible for words for gendered children types be derived from a generic, gender neutral term + a gendered plural ending, like: wasa "child" > wasan "girls" / wasin "boys" > lexicalization, loss of singular form, and reanalysis > w(a)sana "girl" / w(a)sini "boy" yana "sibling" > yanan "sister...

Re: No verbs?

Kēlen is the name of a conlang which has only four verbs, and therefore verbs are a closed class and thus quite unverblike. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kēlen It can be said to have no verbs at all.... Sotomayor says that the language is perfectly naturalistic in all ways except that it has no v...

Re: Advice for Omyatloko

I would like some advice, please. I have 351 glyphs but I know some them will rarely be used, and I realize I lack glyphs for words that are more common. So, I've been mapping my glyphs to the Kyōiku kanji in an effort to get basic, common words but I think I may be missing the mark. Should I look ...

Re: Words to mean Friend

朋 is a pictogramm of a bird that used to be pronounced identically to the word of friend, according to wiktionary. Why does that bird look like two moons? Apparently... I guess the best term might be "calligraphic coincidence". Some suggest it started out as a character for two strings of cowry she...
