What about the fact that this "epenthetic" vowel is stressed?

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

Not sure if this belongs here, but...
Can anyone point me to some books about the history of writing? Preferably not something heavily academic, more in a spirit of popular science.

Re: National Anthems

Most anthems are boring and sound much the same. I do like Hatikva just for standing out, though (and, probably, because I'm Israeli).

The "past" is usually marked, AFAIK; or both.
Look at Germanic and Uralic languages for examples.

I remember that Trailsend did some presentation explaining conlanging and using Feayran examples.

Would be interesting to see what you'll end up with. Please don't forget to share. [;)]

Re: Menlish, the language of MEN!

Can we have more rhotic sounds, like [ɹ], [ɻ], [r], [ɾ], [ʀ] and [ʁ]? Also, rhotics could be syllabic.
