Re: A paper I wrote on Farsi Ezafe

Your transcription is totally inconsistent. You variously give book as keta:b, ketab and kitab. You also have at least one <y> for /j/. Why not just use the normal transcription? I.e. ketâb. Also it's not clear what most of your ungrammatical sentences are supposed to demonstrate, you just give an u...

Re: Lesson/Guide Requests

I know this one might be a bit weird, but how about a Polynesian language like Rapa Nui or Hawaiian? The Rapa Nui are my favourite ancient culture, and I've been trying to learn their language from Internet-based resources with little luck. I would definitely follow along any Malayo-Polynesian lang...

Re: PSA: aeiouǝ Inventories Exist in Natlangs!

Tocharian B and apparently A both have /aeiouǝ/. While they do both have phonetic [ɨ], in the case of Tocharian B it is simply an allophone of unstressed /ǝ/, whereas in Tocharian A, Proto-Toch. /ɨ/ is elided in open syllables and inserted into consonant clusters, and supposedly exists solely as a t...

Re: La Lingua Romanica

Porque Italian es la lingua la plu conservativa. Los hybridos de las linguas romanicas son tan comunes que yo posso en facer uno sur la plaza; in fato, es tan facil que ecriver en el frances que yo parlo. Mi favorite es la interlingua, mas ils son tan comunes que ils combinan in mi mente.

I only got through the section on nouns so far, but I definitely like what I see! The possessive prefixes coming after the plural reduplication is especially cool. And this is fantastic:

Re: CBB Conlang Relay VII

I have received the torch. However this week happens to be very busy for me, and I won't be able to start until Friday at the earliest, meaning I won't be able to pass it on until at least Saturday (bearing in mind I'm a day ahead of some of you). If people are unhappy with another hold up then I'll...
