Re: A riddle for you guys

What a cool idea! Here are my guesses: It very much seems to be a generally VSO language. I think definite articles come before the nouns they modify, but adjectives come after. There seems to be some kind of gender agreement as well: Mim- Nominative definite article Mu- Nominative definite article ...

Selv/Self/Selve Considering how many different forms and usages there are for this word I figured I should go into each of them Selv- Noun When used as a neuter noun, Selv translates quite simply as "self" and has the plural form Selve. Selv- Adjective When used as an adjective, selv means "same" a...

Re: Lapdeutsch

Very nice language. Definitely feels like a German or Dutch dialect, or sociolect. *is writing down notes* Glad that you like it! [:D] I'm not sure whether or not I'd consider it a sociolect. I do think ideally it would be more associated with people in rural parts of Western Germany and Eastern Ne...

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

I agree. In some dialects this process is still productive and also active for post-alveolars (which are phonetically rounded), e.g. there is [fʏʃʷ]~ [fɪʃʷ] 'fish'. I'm so glad to read this because I often hear my German professor use [ʏ] where I'd expect [ɪ] and always thought it was a bit strange...

Re: If natlangs were conlangs

What's with the random nominal declension?! You have basically two cases: a half-assed genitive and everything else, and the markings are all the same in 3 of the four cases! You only needed 4 endings and all you came up with was -Ø -s -s -s And then they went and added random apostrophes for seemi...

Sometimes there's rounding around labials, especially in some dialects. This is probably just a case that made it into the standard.
Another instance of it is schwören. The version with -ö- is borrowed from dialect whereas the expected form would be schweren.

Here's a German one I just thought up:
Wie weiß man, dass Hunde sehr gute Architekten sind?
Weil sie immer „Bau, wow“ sagen!


Here's a slightly different English translation:
How do you know that dogs are great architects?
Because they always say "roof roof"

Re: Lapdeutsch

In Southeast Michigan AAVE “it’s a box on the table” translates into Standard American English as “there is a box on the table”. Both dialects are as Germanic as any other kind of English. I doubt AAVE “it is” is a translationism of German “es sind” or vice versa. I could be wrong. That’s interesti...

I am curious. What usage are you referring to? Me, as a native German speaker, I have difficulties to think of what you mean, since at least the second one overlaps with what you mention later in the post, IIUC. Looking at it from a German perspective you're definitely right in that "es sind" in th...
