Re: Gender ideology in languages

I agree, but who's arguing that men and women should have different rights? That's just sexism. (Unless there's an actual biological reason for it, but I can't think of any case where there would be) Best example is abortion. It takes a man and a woman to create a baby, but only the woman has to ca...

Re: Gender ideology in languages

There are schools that encourage the use of 'hen' instead of 'han/hon'. And this is a problem... why, exactly? Serious question. I'm not seeing a problem with referring to everyone with ungendered pronouns, as long as it actually is applied fairly and equally. Trying to enforce an ideology via lang...

Soothly, but thome is a teachword, and teachwords with hodewords oft keep hir speechwayfalls. teachword = demonstrative hodeword = pronoun hir = their Wherefore dost thou go against such an ur-Germanish word as "their"? Surely we can make use of words borrowed from our Germanish neighbors? Liken to...

Re: Skånsk grammatik / Scanian grammar

Tror att mer eller mindre samtliga skandinaviska dialekter har antingen ti/te , å eller ti/te å , stavningar till trots. Rikssvenskan är den enda varianten där man önskar ett läsuttal av att , riksdanska har <at> /ʌ/ för infinitivmärket (Jag känner inte till att danska skulle ha någon infinitiv med...

Is "þat ist ist" a typo, or is it similar to the "isis" phenomenon in English, as in "the thing is, is that..."?

Re: The Don language family

For your diachronic considerations you have to keep in mind that the Sovjet Union prohibited that the peoples living in its borders stop using a Kyrillic alphabet. A new alphabet would have to be a relatively new invention (or an older one that was revived after 1990, but that didn't seem to happen...

Re: The Don language family

I haven't said much about the conculture, because it isn't very well developed. The name "Don" was actually chosen randomly, as I wanted something short and sweet and there are no natlangs with that name. Then I realized the potential in the actual river named Don. I imagine the culture has an urhei...

Re: The Don language family

Some morphophonology! /q/ takes the form when followed by a front vowel or /k kʷ/. Thus we have eppusel "nurse" and uŋpussel "veterinary" from eppuq "help (humans)" and uŋpuq "help (animals)" + the derivational morpheme -el "someone who does habitually." When two plosives follow each other, voiced p...

This is not /ɫ/, right? I just find it difficult for these clusters to go to /ɫ/, I'd think they'd sooner palatalize to /ʎ/.
It's actually /ɽ/.

The Don language family

Hello! This is a language family I've been working on for a little while. It started out as an experiment in tonogenesis as well as bipartite verbs. I have a protolanguage, a fairly well-developed daughterlang and I want to start developing another daughter. This post will provide an overview. In la...
