Re: How to make an R-Turkic language?

Details of diachronics is pretty much undecided; espcially when it comes to loanwords, it is difficult to determine what sound changes should this stratum of loanwords should take (e.g. Middle High German, Old East Slavic, Cuman).

Re: Goþesch Razde

Why are there so many schwas, just like West Germanic languages and Danish, in such an isolated environment from other Germanic languages; is this realistic?

Re: How to make a Celtic lostlang?

According to the author of Brittonica : Brittonica (Brittoníca) is a reconstructed form of late Common Brythonic dating to about the early 6th century, the time of King Arthur, shortly before the loss of final syllables led to the development of the earliest daughter languages (ancestors of Welsh, B...

Re: How to make a Celtic lostlang?

Actually, I've seen the page about Galeiga before, but I think its aesthetics not impressing enough. Maybe its phonology should become more similar to Iberian Romance languages, especially phonotactics. I originally intended to imitate Latin-to-Galician sound changes, but that's also boring; I shoul...

How to make a Celtic lostlang?

What would a Celtic lostlang in Galicia look like? Galicia was a destination for Britons (e.g. Insular Celts) in early Middle Ages like Brittany used to be; however, I wonder whether there were any Continental Celtic speaker left there. Another problem is how would it have been influenced by Ibero-R...

Re: Zeko-Romance development thread

How do you like the vowel system of Tundrian and its evolution? Tundrian is the only descendant of Latin that preserved the distinction between original short and long vowels until quite late in its history (9th-10th century AD). Although this distinction has by now disappeared in pronunciation, Tun...

Re: How to make an R-Turkic language?

Cool! Where did you get the sound changes for Turkic and Uralic, by the way? Anyway, if you haven't discovered it yet, I'd recommend a chapter from a book/journal whose name I forgot : Sammallahti, Pekka (1988) “Historical phonology of the Uralic languages with. special reference to Samoyed, Ugric,...

Re: Jäzik Panúski

AFAIK *ĺ might be a voiceless lateral fricative; *kümüĺ 'silver' has been compared to Tibetan <dngul> under the hypothesis that this word was borrowed from a Sino-Tibetan language and its final l was devoiced in actual pronunciation. (see Antonov and Jacques, Turkic kümüš ‘silver’ and the lambdacism...

Some preliminary sound changes, inspired by Hungarian sound changes and Bulgar/Chuvash ones: t d s n > ts dz ʃ ɲ/ _{i,j} k ɡ > q ɢ > h ɦ / _{+back} # g never seems to occur word-initially before a back vowel p t c k tʃ > b d ɟ ɡ~ɢ dʒ > β ð ʝ ɣ~ɦ ʒ > v z j ɦ~h ʒ / V_V # ɦ is the intervocalic allophon...

How to make an R-Turkic language?

I've picked up my dormant plan to make an R-Turkic language recently, which is supposed to be spoken by a (yet to be named) people descended from Avars, Bulgars, Pechenegs and Cumans (with elements of Hussite refugees and Transylvanian Saxons), spoken in most of Covasna County, eastern Harghita Coun...

Re: Jäzik Panúski

As Shimo said, Hungarian <ly> is /j/. For the sound changes in Pannonian, I recall some Kajkavian dialects that do something similar. That's similar to standard Slovene; IIRC some Hungarian dialects also pronounce <ly> as /l/, but Hungarian <ly> is mainly from loanwords, isn't it? (Native *lj mostl...

Re: Jezik Panoski

That's possible, I thought that the town of Vencsellő might've been too far to be affected by a South Slavic change. Alternatively, I thought we could do something like Hungarian and have the outcome of these clusters be /cç/ and /ɟʝ/ respectively, but I thought that would've been too "archaic" for...
