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

I don't know what the applicative nouns would mean, whether they have causative meaning or an instrumental one. https://media1.tenor.com/images/e17525775ef2f4138dc3bb4b5750179a/tenor.gif The two possible meanings are clearly related, and I'm sure context would clarify which was intended.

Yes, I did indeed provide a link to the phonology on the original question post. The syllable structure/phonotactics would also be there.

Re: Yay or Nay?

Yay or nay,

Vrkhazhian should have ejective fricatives (that, like all fricatives, tend to affricate word-initially)?

You're right, I've even found Semitic languages with 33+ consonants: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inor_language#Consonants https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaha_...

I remember someone (can't find who said it) saying a triconsonantal root system (or maybe it was an abjad) cannot have too many consonant phonemes. Is this really the case?
