Since clitics usually attach to the auxiiary it would begin to show agreement with more than one argument. At some point the new conjugated auxiliary can become a...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Re: Deinau: new project

Wouldn't these be <iei ou yey vw>, or were you trying to reduce the number of triphthongs? That's the point Sorry, but what do you mean by this, if you don't mind my asking? I mean I think the ortography for vowels can be better, I prefer digraphs to diacritics but what I have this far (trigraphs a...

Re: Grammatical Gender

Tnaaq has 4 genders: masculine, feminine, animate and inanimate. Masculine and feminine are almost conflated to a human gender. Nouns only show gender prefixes if they also have some definite prefixes (k- for specific things and q- for those already mentioned): k-a-syranq: the (specific) old man (hu...

Re: Deinau: new project

They are nasalized diphthongs /æɪ ɒʊ/. Yep, they are! Which consonants are reduced to which of those six possible coda consonants? Basically all the modes of articulation for plosives come into one. /P/ is a conflation of /p/, /pʰ/, /ⁿp/ and /ⁿpʰ/, for example. /S/ stands for all the sibilants and ...
