Re: An r-Turkic conlang in eastern Hungary/Transylvania?

I'm very much honored to be a source of inspiration, and I hope to see more of this, definitely. You do have some work to do, though, as the ultimate language spoken by the "ethnic" Avars is unknown, and it is likely that the lingua franca spoken by the Avars was Proto-Slavic even before their arriv...

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

How likely is it that a language could borrow vowel harmony? I am aware of Cappadochian Greek, although that language is odd as it is more or less a strongly mixed language.

Re: Jäzik Panúski

I think I am at the point where Pannonian is really starting to come together. I have a fairly good idea now on what Pannonian would look like as most of the distinctive isoglosses have been decided upon. However, I've not really developed sound changes that would happen post-Magyar. So, here's a fe...

Re: Lazin (Romlang)

Clitics in German are pronounced unstressed, even when they occur initially, ergo I believe your articles would act similarly.

Re: Carpetanian (Ibero-Romance conlang)

To me, this romlang strikes me as a continuation of Navarro-Aragonese . I find it unlikely the grapheme <ð> would be used, as it was moribund in all languages, even Icelandic until its revival, and its presence was limited to northern Europe. I agree with Iyionaku that c~z would make more sense, or ...

Re: Jäzik Panúskí

I've changed the native name of the language (and also the thread title) with the accordance of some new sound changes. I've started going past sound changes and toying with some of the noun declensions in Pannonian. Here's an example: NOM: -∅ ACC: -∅ GEN: -a DAT: -ü LOC: -ü INS: -em An example of a...

Re: Gehtic - Germanic lang in France

no nasal vowels? Strange, as those German dialects on the French border do have them at least.

Re: Cissian Revisited

Definitely want to see more of this, Ixals! You claim it's close to West/South but to me it appears very East Slavic. Thanks for reminding me that this conlang still exists [:O] I always try to get rid of the East Slavic as much as I can but it looks like I'll never achieve that because I really wa...

Re: Jezik Panoski

A small note about positional palatalisation: in South Slavic it correlates with the distinction of yers' reflexes - in Bulgarian (sans part of the Western dialects) and Macedonian, the two reflexes are different (front and back respectively) and there is palatalisation in position before front vow...

Re: What have you been reading lately? (linguistic ed.)

I've finally managed to get my hands on O Richards The Pannonian Slavic Dialect of the Common Slavic..., and have read up to the second out of four chapters. This book is absolutely excellent and the author treats the subject matter with great care.

Another thing is that a lot of people have their own unique vision for conlangs, and that these collablang tend to not be that coherent.

So… I just turned 21, which feels a little weird, but also, of course, completely normal at the same time.
Happy Birthday!

Wait until you are 24, then you'll start to feel old.
