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

I think if there is only one type of consonant allowed in coda position, it's usually a nasal. Though Aui and Eskimo are exceptions. Isn't Aui a conlang? Do any Inuit languages allow coda consonants other than stops? I think that's a typo of Iau. And as for the Inuit question, most varieties do all...

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

Are there any rules, tendencies or universals concerning coda consonants? Like what is most common, for example. Not really. Plenty of languages only allow sonorants, plenty allow only obstruents, some just have a single nasal /n/, some allow only the glottal stop, some allow only /k s/, many allow...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Is it "xul", the word for fish? Reminds me of words like "hal" and "kal". Correct! It's based mainly off of Mansi forms like /xuːl/. Awesome! I remember reading a list of words for fish several years back, and I recalled how the Uralic languages had forms like the Hungarian hal , the Finnish kala ,...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I know very little about Ugric, but I’m guessing the ɕəwɑt is related to Finnish syöda ? Nope, it's from PIE *ǵyeuH- "chew", the semantic shift being like Tocharian. syödä according to wiktionary is from Proto-Uralic *sewe- , which gives (across dialects) forms such as tij-/tāj-/täj-/tēŋkwe- in Man...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Well my IE lang has taken off a bit, and it seems I've gone full Ugric. *l now goes to a voice velar fricative /ɣ/, which contrasts with a new /x/ which doesn't come about by RUKI, and *s now is fully lateralised. I've also gone down full throttle on the aspiration > velarisation shift, and this now...
