Re: Another triconsonantal project

The conlang is for my setting, but you're more than welcome to use features thereof. Thank you ☺️! Would something like "distributive locative" be better? IMO that should be up to you. IMO there are two considerations; viz.: * what does the feature being named mean most often in your conlang? * wha...

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

This may be not the problem, @tiaa, but: A hiatus is when a syllable-final vowel is immediately followed by a syllable-initial vowel in the same word. It’s a vowel-cluster that’s not a polyphthong, because it isn’t tautosyllabic. There’s a syllable-boundary between one vowel and the next. If there w...

Re: Conworlders' religious influences on conworlds

What about salvia divinatorum aka seer’s sage? Doesn't have the chemical effects I'm looking for; datura's effects are described as being fairly sinister in aesthetic . Either way, it seems that henbane and datura can naturalise in the correct climates, so I do have a justification ready for why th...

Re: Lexicon sculpting

Emperor.

He doesn’t put pores in anything; nor does he put anything in pores.

Instead, he imperates.

But I like the unisex word for monarch or sovereign or supreme leader.

I live at 42.44 N, just about. 18 nautical miles south of you.
So, it’s not because you live to close to the Arctic Circle.

Re: Beginner's Conundrum

American English has all sorts of loan-words from countries where American troops have served, including many countries that were never colonies, never conquered, and never neighbors. Most were also never major trading partners; though it’s probable nearly every country has had at least some trade w...

Not been sleeping well lately. Don't know why. For some reason light in my bedroom has been really bothering me lately, much moreso than earlier this year, which doesn't make any sense because if anything, there's less light when I'm sleeping now than last month.

Does the link in 48b not work for anyone else? It doesn't work for me either. That's odd. It should be working. If it helps, the only difference from the 700 CE map is that Drevaça is part of Dunhounia, and Powys and Bouragho are part of Loundein. Also, Gwynedd expanded a bit Eastward, taking up as...

Re: ItsOkayToBeSmart posts a video treating linguistics as a real science!

I enjoyed it too, as well as the other posts on that channel I sampled (I sampled a few!)

But the channel title is an obvious lie. It’s clearly not OK to be smart.

Can new people join in on this?
I don't see why not!
Probably depends how new they are.
<6 y/o probably are insufficiently literate.
<2 y/o probably aren’t yet fluent in their L1.
But everyone’s welcome, as I understand it, to contribute what they are able to!

Re: Another triconsonantal project

These are great ideas 💡! If it’s a consprachbund, maybe one of my WIP 3Cons could have some of these features? Would that be OK? —— Some natlangs (including some Native North American — ISTR Navaho?) have a verb-inflection, sort of like a distrubutivity or a many-places pluractionality or a completi...

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

In a language with a phonetic inventory of [m m̥ n n̥ t tʰ k kʰ s h l l̥ r r̥ j j̥ w w̥] in which all sequences are phonetically CV, is it more appropriate to analyze a sequence such as [m̥a] as /m̥a/ or /mha/?
