Re: Conlangery Podcast (Latest Ep: #42: Adjectives)

The greeting should be "bonvenon al Conlangery", not "bonvolu". "Bonvolu" means 'please'.

Re: Skandinavisk flagga

Hvorfor ikke bare bruke Kalmarunionflagget? Det er (var) allerede et etablert flagg og brukes ikke av noen andre land/områder, så vidt jeg vet. Det enkle er ofte det beste . Hvis det ikke er stemning for det, stemmer jeg for en mellomting mellom disse to: http://aveneca.com/cbb/images/smilies/icon_s...

Re: Luxuria and the Seven Deadly Sins

I can answer the second part for my natlang. As I'm not religious at all, I do not know them by heart, so I'll have to trust Wikipedia on this one. I have added IPA transcriptions. Here are the Seven Deadly Sins in Norwegian (Bokmål): De syv dødssyndene: [dɪ ˈsyːʋ ˈdœtsʏndn̩ə] 1. Hovmod [ˈhoːʋmud] 2...

Re: Advantages of Case

While I've decided not to apply grammatical genders to things that don't have actual genders, cases intrigue me. Gender and case need not have anything to do with eachother. Sure you can (and many european languages do) have different conjugations for different genders, but if you want to make it l...

Re: Alife 2.0

Poor /g/ and /ɔ/ left out in the cold. And what about schwa? [:'(] Lacking /g/ is not that uncommon in an otherwise symmetrical system, though (cf. Dutch) – I'm more curious about the other two. I assume [ə] will occur in the allophone section? I'm not sure as to how stable a three-way distinction b...

If you aren't very familiar with IPA, I have found this to be really helpful (and still do).

Re: Conlangery Podcast (Latest Ep: #35: Get Rid of Case)

Finnish doesn't have /dʒ/, but name "John" is still written and pronounced as in english, instead of [tson] or [johan:es] (Which is finnish cognate of John). Foreign names aren't usually considered loanwords. I think this is quite exceptional. English has a very strong position internationally, and...

Re: Gomain

Sorry for the delayed response. It is interesting that you have an indefinite article, but not a definite one. (This is a violation of universal #1163 by the way.) Implausible, but not impossible. As so many conlangers say, "universals are meant to be broken." :mrgreen: More seriously, though, I ten...

Pihaŋka! [O.O] Best conlang-ization (is that a word?) I could do. Why would you conlang-ize (Awesome word, by the way) a name like that (Unless the conculture in question has a name that's a cognate of the english one)? If the language lacks voiced plosives and disallows onsetless syllables, [pihaŋ...

I pronounce the noun as [gʉːgəl] or [gʉːgl̩] and the verb as [gʉːglə], even though I have /ɽ/. (For those of you who don't know much about Norwegian phonology: Many dialects have /ɽ/ as an allophone of /l/.)

IPA symbols just show up as squares on this forum. I can see them in the reply box, but not after the message is posted. Which font do I need? (I'm using Chrome btw.)

Hi! This is my first post on this forum. (I have been a lurker in the conlang community for quite some time though ...)
