Aloha! I haven't been very active on here, but I've been learning and creating in my spare time. This is my first lang that isn't utterly hopeless and has some chance at becoming a conlang. I would appreciate any comments or criticisms that you guys have. [:)] But here's the phonology!: Consonants: ...

Nom/Acc vs. Erg/Abs

Ok, I understand the differences between nominative/ accusative pangs and ergative/absolutive langs, but I was wonder what the "side effects" are. Someone on here mentioned that nom/acc languages favor the passive and erg/abs languages favor the anti passive, but I don't understand why. And are ther...

Re: Marking tense on pronouns.

I'm no expert, but Wolof has temporal pronouns where almost all tense and mood is marked. In Wolof, verbs are unchangeable words which cannot be conjugated. To express different tenses or aspects of an action, the personal pronouns are conjugated - not the verbs. Therefore, the term temporal pronoun...

Re: Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Would it be possible for a language to have rhotic consonant harmony?

like:

ruta-ra
ki:ʀona-ʀa
smeɹ:i-ɹa

plausible?

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

What if the language originally had a /t k q/ set of plosives, before /k/ was palatalized to /c/. Would that be terribly unnaturalistic? And I'm not saying unnaturalisticism is bad, so i might just run with what I've got and keep /t q/. (they are the colors of the sunset) EDIT: The Klallam language ...

Nortaneous wrote:Yes. /q/ without a velar stop is unheard of, and /ɮ/ is very rare.
So to make this a realistic phonology, all I have to is add a velar plosive?
Or would /t c q/ be a feasible set o' plosives.

Wikipedia says Qawasqar has velar plosives.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Today, this phonolgy popped into my head, and I was wondering if it was too weird.

Code: Select all

t d        q    ʔ
 n         ɴ
r̥ r
s    ʃ      χ
ɬ ɮ
l    j ɰ

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

/ʔ/ is pronounced /d/ at the beginning of a word and .
/w/ > /l/ when occurring intervocalically between open vowels.

Re: Pronouns?

My lang is meant to be used in a small community of maybe 40 people, and everyone knows everyone.

And among people your own age, one uses the pronouns used for people older than you.
