Re: Guhir language

Are there any restrictions on what consonant clusters are allowed in the coda? (e.g., would things violating the sonority hierarcy, like mapr , or th...

In the French translation, could tu dois / vous devez have been used also?

Re: Conlang Relay 18

I'm interested! I've been thinking it would be fun to try one of these for a while now. I'd be using my taiwazaiho, and would prefer to follow an a priori lang.

EDIT: I PM'd you my info.

Re: Money!

Question. How did people come to accept pebbles in exchanges? Ultimately a money has to have a popular use other than making exchanges in order to have any market value or widespread acceptance. Not really; most countries nowadays just use pieces of paper or round hunks of cheap metal with values w...

Re: Hāla

This reminds me in some ways of my lang Taiwazaiho. In taiwazaiho I have a similar animacy hierarchy that also affects word order. I have deity > human > animate > inanimate > abstract, with some natural forces in deity and some in abstract or animate, and most plants in inanimate. And the phonology...

Re: Guess The Language!!!

Umm, that's not X-SAMPA...

X-SAMPA has no accents; it's ASCII only. And <'> is used for palatalization; I've never heard of a palatalized vowel.

Pasa Ge

Two years ago we started a collaborative conworld project called Pasa Ge. It was an alternate history in which Alexander the Great doesn't mysteriously die, and goes on to conquer Illyria, Italy, and Carthage. Like many collaborative conworlds, the project died, but now we would like to revive it. T...

Re: Interesting stories behind your conlang.

I have a lot of words like this in taiwazaiho, for example: haihiil- "to have one's feet bound" kahawan "noose" sainii "cool" (not the temperature) yangko- "to gather, collect" With a lot of them you can't tell where they came from originally because of taiwazaiho's phonology and syllable structure....
