Re: Constructed languages with only one vowel a or e, .....?

Apparently, Northwest Caucasian languages can be analyzed as having just two vowel phonemes , a higher and a lower one, but these at least have various allophones covering the vowel space, i.e. the high vowel is /i~ɨ~u/ and the low vowel is /ɛ~a~ɔ/ or something like that. This, however, requires po...

Another bash at Sanskrito-Dravido-Australian /p t̪ ʈ c k/ /m n̪ ɳ ɲ ŋ/ /ʋ~u l̪ ɭ j~i/ /r/ The glides alternate between syllabic and non-syllabic forms on the basis of ablaut, on which see more below. Similarly, the liquids may appear as syllabic consonants in the same context. Retroflex consonants /...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I am somewhat unsure how to cyrillicize schwa. Schwa only occurs in unstressed syllables, usually as the second syllable of a two syllable word. You have a couple of choices. You could follow the Circassian example and use Yery <ы>, or you could follow the examples set by some Uralic languages like...

Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

OK, let's discuss relative clauses at last. So relative clauses are formed from nominalisations. These are basically formed from the generic nominaliser -‘ə. In the case of intransitive subjects and also transitive core arguments where the other argument is clear from context this is all that is req...

Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

OK, two minor phonological edits.

Firstly the palatalised version of tr is tyər rather than tay as it was before.

Secondly, schwas assimilate to the quality of a following vowel over a glottal stop, so e.g. it's now mi‘irən "my habits, practices" rather than mə‘irən.
