Wouldn't the pedantically correct form be sedecimal anyway?

*bump* That's really unnecessary, trust me. I'm almost certain I've said this here before, but I have many things to do, especially from Monday to Friday. If I go around 6-8 days without updating this thread, that should not be surprising, or any cause for alarm. It's going to be something that hap...

Re: Indo-European diachronic collablang

In that case, if there's no dual, it's basically the optative stem with primary athematic endings, except for the present active, where we use the subjunctive stem reduced to the zero grade with stress shifted onto the thematic vowel of the endings.

Re: Indo-European diachronic collablang

Re: the subjunctive/optative hybrid: I had the idea for the subjunctive stem to weaken to the zero grade first, so that the main difference between it and the optative would be the personal endings. The subjunctive stem would be retained in the present active, and the optative stem in all other voic...

Re: Pan-Germanic Logograms

Here are four more word rune proposals. I was thinking about how "hart", "heart" and "hearth" could form some sort of word progression while bored at school, so I decided to create runes for these, "hearth" being "fire" bounded by parallel lines, like "sea" from "water". I guess "fire" used as a rad...

I am particularly fond of the *arwīts glyph. I suggest using it as a phonetic element of a glyph for *arbaidiz, with either *meganan or *dōnan being the signific.

Re: Word consistency help?

Also, a syllable is not a string of sounds. A syllable is, it's hard to explain, but it has a nucleus and optionally other stuff around it. So [ʃt] is not a syllable, but [ʃ̩t] could be, although not in most languages. Unless you have syllabic consonants, CC is not a syllable. Or is /dzn/ /dz̩n/? I...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I also started creating an alphabet for Vtayn. It's basically an alphabet but most consonant clusters have single letters (like <x> in Latin alphabet). That makes about 200 letters. Interesting idea. If you don't mind my asking, do you know of any natural alphabets with such high numbers of letters...

Re: Pan-Germanic Logograms

Also, it may mostly be me who's using this slightly more archaic (and I think less anachronistic) version of Proto-Germanic. But since this is a writing system that's meant to be able to write all Germanic languages, it should actually be able to handle using different versions of PG. The idea behi...
