Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

If it's okay, can I have until about Tuesday afternoon (in the UK) to work on round 2? I'm going away for a few days and don't want to miss out.

Re: Armistice Day 11th hour of 11th day of 11th month

We had our two-minute silence a little over half an hour ago at home. Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday fall on the same day this year, so just the one moment of silence this November (I heard plans that the Remembrance Day parade in the nearby town was planning on holding a full five-minute sile...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

So I wasn't able to access the board for the past two days, essentially. I kept getting an error message. People on the Discord server have told me I wasn't alone. Now that I can access the board again, though, there's text like this everywhere: [phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/vendor/twig...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

So, sticking with the same groupings I had in my preliminary work, I'd hazard a guess, using the data we have so far, that the proto word is something like *amikdu . The nasal element is retained in the orange and green groups, where it is transferred to the preceding vowel (and to the following vo...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Currently listening to Elyose's new album Reconnexion, and seems to be heavier than their previous album. More on the gothic metal side of things, where Ipso Facto seemed more gothic rock / industrial.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Just a preliminary run at this: https://i.imgur.com/VvfgCv9.jpg The only group I think I can find a proto-word for is the red group in the south-east, something along the lines of *apəkdu . The orange and green groups are tricky. I'm not sure how closely they are related too each other, with the nas...

Woops, totally forgot about this. So sorry. I would have time tomorrow to create a new challenge, if that's still okay.
I'm happy waiting as well [:)]

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

I have a question about syllable structure and inflection. Let's say I have a conlang where the basic syllable is CV(C) and the (C) stands for a coda consonant, but it can only be /n r s k/ and I make a rule that says all verbs in the infinitive form take the suffix '-eli', Therefore, I could have ...

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

Can /zb zd zg/ not just come from older instances of /Vsb Vsd Vsg/, dropping unstressed initial vowels (or even just have some prefix /s-/)? Similarly, if /qz/ is realised as [ɢ(d)z], then it could come from older /qs/ (/q/ could be [ɢ] syllable-finally, causing the following /s/ to voice, then dro...

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

Do they contrast as at all with /sb sd sg/, is there a voiced uvular plosive, and does /z/ appear anywhere else outside of these clusters? No they don't. /z/ does appear, although usually as /dz/, developing from fortification of */jj/. It may also be realised as [dz] in these clusters./q/ varies b...

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

I want to allow initial /zb zd zg/ and /qz/ in Qutrussan, but I'm trying to explain how this arose as Proto-Q did not have /z/. Is the following reasonable or too far-fetched? Unstressed initial *i- was a common prefix. Post-tonic voicing is a regular sound change. *i-par > *i-bar This *i- fortifie...
