Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have added many words of Qitatyattas which were posted in the Reverse Lexicon Building thread to let others help assign their meanings, however, some meanings of those words are adjusted to fit the grammar and the background culture of the Qitatyattas language.

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...

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...
