Re: Zhér·dûn

Changes In polysyllabic words and just like /n/, final /r/ is also deleted. That mean that words like *austraz "east" first change to austar and end up as just aust before the tonogenesis hits Zhér·dûn. I also added the change of /sw/ > /zw/ to allow for syllables that start with /s/ and have a hig...

Re: Zhér·dûn

Sorry for bothering you and jumping ahead, but today I was wondering how passives will be formed in Zhér·dûn. It seems to me that Germanic languages use a variety of auxiliary verbs/light verbs. German uses sein to be , werden to become , and bekommen to get . English uses at least to be and to get...

Re: Zhér·dûn

Will there be a topic/focus marker for nouns? I am asking because: most Germanic languages use intonation for this purpose. This is rather complicated in a tone language -- not impossible to do, but definitely advanced conlanging. (almost) all natlangs have some way to indicate information structur...

Re: Zhér·dûn

Wow, thanks for the detailed replay. I really like the idea of clusters creating a neutral tone. I also like the idea of neutral low sequences becoming falling, etc. This looks a lot like dissimilation to me [:)] No problem [:D] Originally I had kept neutral-low sequences etc., so there were three ...

Re: Zhér·dûn

This is an interesting conlang - a Germanic language that resembles an East Asian language! There probably is no plausible place where such a language could be spoken "in the real world", but as an experiment, it is nice. Actually, if Ixals would make this North Germanic, we could say descendants o...

Zhér·dûn

Zhér·dûn Most of the time I prefer to make my a posteriori conlangs as realistic as possible, which of course hinders the speed at which I can conlang. So to change things up a bit, I simply started working on Zhér·dûn, a conlang I give the realistic side of things a pass with. Zhér·dûn is its own ...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Just "willow tree"? Yes! [:D] Your turn! (Is it from <salīcitārius>?) Nope, just <salīx> with turned into /sai̯t͡s/ and the <-ārium> was added later on. Here's the orthography and the phonological development: (/ˈaːrjũ/ > /ˈi̯er/ > /jɛu̯/) /ˈsa.li.kẽ/ > /ˈsaʎd͡z/ + /ie̯r/ > /sai̯ˈt͡sjel/ > /sɛˈsʲjɛ...

So does <-ārius> correspond to the segments /ɛu̯/ in the descendant?
Almost [:D]

Also, were any intervocalic segments (apart from the /r/ in the suffix) lenited away by sound change?
Yes, but at the time of deletion, the segment was not intervocalic anymore.

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Well, the suffix ended in <-ius>, it was a bit longer than that [B)]

And yes, it was one of <sī-/sa-/sā->, the middle one to be exact.
