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

/j/ between a consonant and a vowel often make the consonant become nalsaised or affricated.
Does /w/ in the same position cause consonant changes in some language? And what are the results?

Re: Kôren language

Trying to describe the phonology more accurately and synchronically. Koren has 9 vowel phonemes: /i, e1, e2, a,, u, o1, o2, ɒ,, ai/. When stressed, they are pronounced: [i, e, e, a,, u, o, o, ɒ,, ai], respectively. When unstressed, they are pronounced: [ɪ, ɪ, ɛ, ɛ,, ʊ, ʊ, ɔ, ɔ,, ɛɪ], respectively. W...

The message on proper nouns above also solves my eternal problem of vowel orthography :) Vowels Stressed syllables can have seven vowel sounds: [a, e, i, ɒ, o, u, ai]. Unstressed syllables can have seven vowel sounds: [ɛ, ɪ, ɔ, ʊ, ɛɪ]. When not stressed /a, i, ɒ, u, ai/ are pronounced: [ɛ, ɪ, ɔ, ʊ, ...

Re: Kôren language

On proper nouns I have had a problem for many months. Proper nouns have a suffix -o. Definite nouns are stressed on the penultimate syllable. <serpa> [ sɛɹ'pa] 'a house' <Serpa> ['seɹpɛ] 'the house' Because proper nouns are definite, they shoul also be stressed on the penultimate syllable. But then ...

Re: Kôren language

Koren has two synthetic tenses: Non-Future and Future. Non-Future is zero-marked and Future has suffix -e. Future is also used to express imperative. Wouldn't that then be more of a realis-irrealis distinction rather than tense? As far as I know, it's still debated if the future tense always entail...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Maybe it could have ejective fricatives as roducts of some morpho-phonological processes, but not on the lexical level. Such as? I have no idea of your language's phonology, but generally, say there is a prefix ending in a glottal stop and a stem starting in a sibilant, they can realize as an eject...

Yay or nay, Vrkhazhian should have ejective fricatives (that, like all fricatives, tend to affricate word-initially)?

I'll admit it's been a while since I've read up on antipassives, so I'm afraid I can't give any examples from natural languages, but if I remember correctly, reintroduced "objects" can, at least sometimes, be marked as oblique arguments, much like how some languages, English included, treat reintro...

Tenses Koren has two synthetic tenses: Non-Future and Future. Non-Future is zero-marked and Future has suffix -e. Future is also used to express imperative. Stress does not change between Non-Future and Future tenses, and is thus on the penultimate in Non-Future forms and anti-penultimate in Future ...

Hello.

I realized the name of the language is not possible endonym in the language. I'll make the minimum change: Kôrem is now Kôren.
