Re: What did you accomplish today?

Well, when I say "it looks terrible", I don't mean it looks bad asthetically. I'm more talking about how a huge amount of distinctions must be lost. For instance, Japanese does not distinguish <ch> from <ty>, mainly because the former is the allophonic pronounciation for the latter. In addition, it...

Despte the fact that it looks terrible writing Sunbyaku in Japanese script is oddly alluring: 星ね見やらじ aya ne nizuyaraji "I can't see the stars" なむでよ動おうやじろ 悲びま避て nam deyo uōyajiro, kurubi ma zesa te "I can't move away from this place, to escape this sadness" maybe you need time to get used to the Jap...

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

In languages with monoexponential case marking, do the case suffixes usually precede or follow the plural suffix? Also, I won't be at a computer to reply for a while. If case and number are both suffixes, then the usual order is N-Num-Case. If they're both prefixes, then the usual order is Case-Num...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Complex tonal language. Too many for diacritics. So, should they be represented by numbers or letters? up to you, if you don't want to use any non-ASCII characters, or want to use diacritics for other purposes, you can use numbers or letters. it seems that the latin transcriptions/latin writting sy...
