French keyboard question

How do I get ñ and á/é/í/ó/ú on a French keyboard? My sister-in-law got one from her dad, but we haven't discovered if or how to do it. Thanks.

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

Playing around with sound changes for a Alahithian dialect. Story goes that this star-spanning aux conlang has its standard version, but a small community speaks this exclusively, and it has a few sound changes (about 6). Here's an example of the verb bataw 'to be enslaved' and its conjugations: bat...

Re: The Majestic 4th Conversation Thread

I heard this phrase in Doctor Who recently: "Their mum and dads". That is, the plural is for the whole phrase, not just "dad". Anyone hear that sort of thing before?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Sounds like an interesting system. Is there a way of dealing with tenses (if you have it), such as "the man was ugly/confusing"?

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

Just a question on grammar terminology. Gnoughish allows "raising" of prepositional adjuncts in the following manner: I heard a noise in the alleyway > alleyway in-heard noise (by me) So alleyway is now the subject by prefixing the preposition on the verb. Is there a word for this, any similar examp...

Not exactly today, but recently got the conlang bug again and a few ideas have come to me... Gnoughish Contemplating the copula and wondered about case and how it would work, then came up with this... Equative "I am that man" (that man is me) Both "I" and "that man" would be in the nominative. Ascri...

Re: Go!

Inifinitive is used in Alahithian for inperative. To distinguish from relative clauses (infinitive is used for this) spoken emphasis is on the infinitive. Onedoy! Go! (to one person) - pronoun xon maybe precede verb. Go! (to more than one person) - pronoun in maybe precede verb. Ham onedoy! Let us g...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

A little fusioning between Spanish, French and English. Vocab will be a mixture (mostly derived but some invented), but the grammar will be based on my "psych-lang". The rhotic will depend on the preference of the speaker. /m n ɲ/ <m n gn> /p b t d k g/ <p b t d k g> /f v θ ð s z ʃ ʒ x~h/ <f v th dh...
