Re: British Romance Language Collablang

First it told me to register for DropBox. When I said no, it tried to sell me the app. When I said no again, then it finally showed me the map. Yes, that link “works” (sort of). If you're on a computer, at least, you should have been able to get rid of that pop-up right away by clicking the X in th...

Re: British Romance Language Collablang

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: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

The syllables with glide tones are probably going to be longer than the syllables with level tones or without tones, which naturalistically and realistically means they’d probably attract stress. Realistically and naturalistically unstressed syllables are likelier to assimilate to the tones of their...

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/?

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

Derivational class is probably the best name for it, and since I do happen to have grammatical gender, I'll base it off of that. Also, would it be weird for some nouns to be irregular and take some or all of their derivational affixes from a different class? How about some derivations applying to a...

Ignorant how so? I don’t know enough about the subjects you are asking questions about, for any of my comments to be helpfully informative.
