Re: What did you accomplish today?

Híí has - despite my violent protestations - gained the grapheme y for a marginally phonemic /j/ and a much more pervasive [j]. This means that Híí now has delightful sequences like mmy nny rry wwy mm’y nn’y rr’y ww’y . I should probably rename the language in light of this. Perhaps sth like Quenya ?

When you want to mix Icelandic and Mohawk and it doesn’t work and morphs into a monster: n̥ n t k ʔ θ ð s z x ɣ h ɬ l r̥ r j w iː uː ɪ eː oː ʌ aː It’s probably because it’s 2:30am but I love these vowels.

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

I was responsible for the creature → monster shift. Iyionaku’s torch contained an entry that listed ‘creature’ and ‘monster’ amongst its definitions. The meaning ‘monster’ was further elaborated on and furthermore the word occurred with the distal demonstrative in the text which I saw as a sign of t...

Maybe next time we can either take a shorter text or have a longer regular amount of days for each one to translate.
I agree. I feel this text was quite long for a two-day deadline. It took me three days and a bit to complete.

Re: CONLANG RELAY XI

Reading the translations, I realise that I completely forgot a whole sentence! I don’t know how but I simply didn’t translate “I’m becoming fashionable” into Sōkoan. So you can thank me for that. [:'(] [xD]

Did you or Crey forward the torch to Loglorn then?
I'm sorry but I'm burning for the results!
I’m pretty sure loglorn is working on the last translation as we speak and the results are expected to be up soon.

The recent threads by Davush and VaptuantaDoi have been giving me ideas lately. Here’s a tiny phonology I like: p k ʔ f s h o i a Fairly free phonotactics including the following: p k can be geminated f s can be syllabic, long or short Long vowel chains are permitted with glide allophones of i o

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Spent what free time I had over the last two days toying with this Arabic-inspired phonology. I like many things about it, not least the romanisation. I want to come up with another romanisation that doesn’t disallow digraphs unlike this one. /m n ŋ/ m n ṅ /t t͡ɕ k q ʔ/ t ć k q ’ /b d d͡ʑ g ɢ/ b d j...
