Re: Could [ l̰ ], [n͡l], [lⁿ] and [nˡ] be the same phoneme?

I don't think the question was silly at all, and I see no need to be embarassed. There is no general answer to your first question, but there are some tendencies: if you have only one series of stops, they tend to be voiceless. The same is often true for affricates. If you have only one series of fr...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I really like that idea. Did you already think of other changes? Maybe one could do something nice with the vowels (keeping half of them from becoming /i/)?

Re: How would you romanize Kazakh?

Just wanted to mention that the actual phonemic system of vowels in Kazakh seems to be debated, as well as the vowel harmony facts (and relatedly, some consonant pattens). Might be a reason for confusing orthography.

Re: Spiú - A monosyllabic descendant of Spanish

I really like this idea. It looks a bit like Ancient Greek and Celtic had a baby with some Bantu language. Words like 'mbrer' and 'nuéord' in the same language really give a unique feeling to it. I think we all need more time to really read through it [:)]

Re: A riddle for you guys

A lot of interesting things in GrandPiano's post. Keep in mind that you can also request translations of specific sentences. Another advise that might be helpful. Maybe you could describe the function of some marker as a disjunction (it is used either for X or for Y) and then later try to unify its ...

Re: A riddle for you guys

You translated "si kiku tun sin nipum" as "you should walk away" but "in kiku tun sin nipum" as "I must walk away". If I'm allowed to ask, does the use of "should" vs. "must" reflect a difference in meaning or mood, or is it just an arbitrary difference in translation? There is no difference betwee...

Re: A riddle for you guys

I think GrandPiano is closer here than Shemtov. I prepared two sentences with mood in it (14-15) and for GrandPiano I translated the progressive aspect. (14) Si nimu kun sin anin tun sin nipum. `You will be happy to walk away.' (15) In kiku tun sin nipum. `I must walk away.' (16) Minum ta sutu mim p...
