Re: Ok People I finally got the IPA for my language!!!!

Now, get that /t/ out of there and make your villagers happy! i 100% agree with this! although i read the ZBB post you made & i dont think that it was as much of a "bash" as you made it out to be, i do think that at the end of the day its all about being happy. if you want to no /t/, have no /t/! :...

So why would their be so much grief for a conlanger hobbyist not being familiar with IPA? what ahzoh said; the reason language classes dont use it cus they want to be accessible--they still you how to pronounce...

Re: Iquito Ripoff (scratchpad)

Basically, a lot of compound verbs composed of monosyllabic verb + noun are going to exist. i could be wrong, but i think the "technical term" for these are light verbs or periphrastic verbal constructions , tho the first is more narrow (i still understood what ya meant, but i think that technical ...

Salga de mi casa! en este caso, creo que se prefieran "vete de mi casa"; para mi, y para mi profesor, "salir" significa "leave for a specific reason" como "hes leaving (for a night out on the town)" y "irse" significa "leave in general" como "hes leaving school at 3" here, i think that (spanish spe...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I'm definitely not making an auxlang. It's full of weird phonology and grammar. Most people will probably not be able to easily pronounce /ˈʜɛnˌsint/, or break up that it means "we two speak to one another" (or "we two are speaking..." as it doesn't differentiate a progressive aspect). wierd things...

Re: Ezarine - Ezȧrine

My only criticism is that it doesn't seem unique What do you mean? It feels french, no offense. I'm not used to non-English languages. It seems too much of a memorization tasks. Maybe you should fuse some conjugations so that it seems more naturalistic. I don't know, I'm not a Romance person. it do...

Can I make adpositions also be able to conjugate as verbs instead of having to use "be" with them so I have something like "she ats the house" instead of "she is at the house"? Absolutely! Actually, IIRC, the most common path of connection is for the appositions to actually be derived from the verb...
