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

Naturalistically speaking, is Bäïkal, which was meant for religious communications at first, a dialect of Common or its own language due to the changes? That's entirely up to you within the context of the conworld/conculture. A lot of people consider the Sinitic languages to be dialects of the same...

Your phonology is too embarrasing...
How is it "embarrassing"? Kitchen sinky, sure, but that was kind of the point.

Re: The alphabet has a secret and has been found

I know before I started reading about linguistics, I thought /ʃ/ was the natural fusion of /s/+/h/ Same, but because I also knew that <š> exists, I was certain that the /ʃ/ of English and the /ʃ/ of Finnish must be different sounds; when I learned that Turkish uses <ş> for /ʃ/, I thought that was y...

Re: The alphabet has a secret and has been found

I'd prefer to hear more from thevietguy, especially regarding this claim: "In Nature there are 19 consonants and more than 50 vowels" ...made over on Quora (where it would seem they've been posting a link to their site a lot since last Friday). Arabic has 28 consonants in my. Biblical Hebrew had at...

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

Thank you for clearing things up Vlürch. This sounds like an interesting project. I'll make a thread about it sooner or later, but first I have to derive a lot more vocabulary... and grammar... it's still in its early stages. How would such names, which are basically entire sentences, work grammati...

Re: The Takur languages

If the dog was eating or chewing the cat, you might use HAVE instead, as is common in handling verbs. If the emphasis was on the dog modifying the cat (maybe biting off a limb or creating some visible change), you might use DO/MAKE. T-the poor cat...

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

As far as I understood Vlürch, it seems to be: Yeah, that's exactly one part of what I was asking. I know I worded the question really weirdly, half because I was super-tired and hadn't slept in like 48 hours or whatever, and half because it's just a weird question. It's just that even though an "a...

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

Is it "acceptable" to use several different reconstructions of the same proto-language (with obviously slightly different results if the same words were derived from) as sources for vocabulary in a conlang that's meant to be naturalistic? What I mean is, does it require additional justification, lik...

Haha! I appreciate your ramblings though. [xD] Cuteness is subjective but I appreciate it. It has given me more to think about for the language I am working on.

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

In Japanese, there was a historical shift of [ɸ] (from earlier [p]) > [h] before [a e o] and [ɸ] > [ç] before [i ], with [ɸ] being preserved only before the high back vowel. If I remember correctly, this only occurred initially, since intervocalic [ɸ] became [w]. Some pronounce it as [x] before /u/...
