Re: Yay or Nay?

In that context, if the Goths switch to Cyrillic anytime, you might use the letter izhitsa, ѵ, to represent former /y/ as it was the letters function in Greek loanwords to Slavic (the existence of izhitsa is one of the clues that Greek still had /y/ in the 800's when the glagolitic and the cyrillic...

Re: Omzinesý's short project

There are also two other verb forms in the voice slot, beside active and medio.passive. I cannot find good names but I call them Subject-Oriented Voice (SOV) and Object-Oriented Voice (OOV). Suggestions for better names are well come! Their markers are: SOV: -pa OOV: -to They are used in relative cl...

Omzinesý's short project

I guess this will not last long. Aiming for some Scandinavic aesthetics , It seems this is closer to Turkish, no problem but repeating my favourite features. The lang has an essive case for complements of the copular verb, once again. I'll also noobishly borrow European words and a bit modify them. ...

Re: Development thread of my newest project

I'm considering changing the phonotactics so that geminates are allowed but vowel length ceases from being contrastive. Nasal vowels could also be followed by a coda consonant. Because voiced plosives cannot appear in the coda position and nasal consonants cannot follow nasal vowels, coda nasals cou...

Re: Development thread of my newest project

Uses of the tenses There are three tenses: Non-Future, Future, and Perfect. In principle, there is no morphological constraint for forming a Future-Perfect tense, but I find it redundant. Aspect can be marked derivationally, but often it's lexical or inferred from the context, i.e. there is more cod...

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

@Omzinesy Is the thing you mark with C+w labialization, velarization, or labio-velarization? Many Native American languages use <ł> to mark the lateral fricative. In Polish it has been a velarized lateral, nowadays its [w] though. <rh> or <hr> is maybe the most typical way to mark a sonorant being ...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

Adjectives The adjective system is inspired by that of French. Gender is not marked in nouns, but there are nouns of all genders in all declensions. Most adjectives, contrarily, mark gender by stem changes. Adjectives in the noun-modifying/attribute function do not have case inflection. In a predica...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

The perfect is formed with different person suffixes. Furthermore, there perfect has an ABS-ERG alignment so that the verb agrees with S and O arguments only. In the table the SENSORY epistemic marker is also written because the vowel nasalizes in 2nd persons. SG1 -anja [ãɲa] (the EGOPHORIC form is ...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

A new morphology of the transitive verb suffixes. I ended up making them a full syllable long, which makes it easier to find enough suffixes, without using every consonant as a suffix. The solution looks simple but has portmanteaus. I find it the best of the solutions I have produced this far for th...
