Re: relative clause strategy

It kind of reminds me of Quechua, in which relative clauses are transformed to take the form of a participle which modifies the main clause question. This system seems perfectly intuitive to me, but in this case, and considering your language is head-final (adjectives, etc. before the nouns they mod...

Re: Ussaria

Regarding the /z+h/-type sequences, the issue could be resolved by using diaritics, such as <ć ś ź> for /tʂ ʂ ʐ/. A less dramatic change might be to seperate such sequences with an apostrophe rather than a hyphen, according to your preferences in aesthetics.

Re: Romanizations

You could also post your phonology here or in the Romanization Game thread (less recommended) to see what other people come up with, and adopt the elements you happen to like.

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

Did you ever attempt to make a more calligraphic computer font for Chudihr? I'm sure it would look great. (I can't say I like the current angular one.) Have you tried writing with a pen or brush? Maybe it would inspire you.

Re: Ssikangul

I don't see why the construction "you and I" would be less naturalistic than "I and you" or vice versa. To me, the former definitely sounds better (from a purely aesthetic standpoint), and I suppose many people think so too. As for the politeness rule, maybe it just started within the higher classes...

Re: Ssikangul

It seems to me very unnaturalistic that a language should have two forms of "and" simply to avoid repetition. I too suggest that you choose different meanings for both words, such as general conjunction vs. combining two things which share a function, etc. In this case, say we applied the former use...

Re: Ssikangul

Looking through this topic, it seems that Ssikangul is coming along swimmingly. However, the transcription seemed to me a bit too inconsistent, and therefore I humbly propose the following spelling reform, inspired by the orthographies of Hungarian, Basque, Azerbaijani, and Kurdish, which I made in ...
