Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

@Birdlang in case you think Eldin is serious, he isn't. These inventories are fine* except the second one, which would benefit from cutting some vowels out.

*They're fine. What's with the random ejective in the second and the random nasalized flap in the third, though?

Re: Yay or Nay?

I would simplify the vowels into something like this:
/i y ɯ u e ø ɤ~ə o ɛ ɔ a/ + /aː ã aˀ/ and combinations of these
<i ü ũ u e ö õ o é ó a> <aa ą a’> + <aa’ ą’ ąą ąą’>

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I thought I'd make a diachronic sketch, so here it is: The proto-language had the following phonology: /p t k/ /b d g/ /m n ŋ/ /s/ /i e a ə o u/ Syllable structure was (C)CV(C). The middle language was phonologically quite interesting: /p k/ /m n/ /θ s x/ /i i: e e: a a: o o: u u:/ Syllable structur...
