Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

It has to do with historical mergers. /kʷo/ merged with /ko/, and /ti/ and /ki/ both became palatalized to /t͡ʃi/. Sweet... This actually helps me with something I'm considering. I have /t t͡ʃ c(ʲ)/, where /t/ preceding /e/ is seperate from the two other phones which have merged to /t͡ʃ/ before the...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

The sequences /ji/, /ti/, /ki/, and /kʷo/ are forbidden, and the rimes /oʋ/ and /ij/ are equivalent to /u:/ and /i:/, respectively. This is cool looking. My first attempt looked like this. Anyway, just wanted to ask, understandiing /ji ti kʷo/, why is /ki/ forbidden, too? (I also dig the idea of "f...

I really like that you didn't show vowel length by just using di- and trigraphs of the same vowel. Seeing 3 or more of the same letter in a row still weirds me out.

Honestly, I am geeking. I thought this was a guy doing the almighty taboo of a vowel-less language, but the details are proving more than I expected. Update: reading this is actually melting my brain.

What's up with the /v/? The above list doesn't have it. This language is nice, with or without. Got to say, the title is a little 'meh.' (Get it? :P)

Re: Yabushionese (Phonology expanded incl. accent)

Thank you. My sort-of goal that's been guiding me is to try and combine the jaunty, informal feel of Japanese colloquial dialects with the formal, literary feel of Classical Japanese, creating a weird, anachronistic sort of language, but then have a whole county where it has official status, giving...

Something I thought would be fun, one day listening to one of my favorite songs. There is a song on an old CD called Celtic Moods named Adiemus. (A freaking beauty of a song.)

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I have become interested as to why those two families possess such large phonologies. As gach said, they're really not that much larger than all other natlang inventories. But even without that fact, I don't believe there really is a concrete reason as to why the NW Caucasian and Khoisan (not a tru...
