Re: Damta: A collaborative world

So sorry I haven't been more responsive. I'm in the midst of exam season myself.
I'll hop on board with the wiki as soon as I can!

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

Haha yes :) Don't say those things! :p jk Nah though, if it feels necessary. I think I will have a lot of levelling too. Hopefully I can salvage a few endings from more frequent noun classes and have them re-analysed to do work more broadly. I'm exceedingly excited to learn that at least one languag...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I'm up for investigating it. I set up a page here: https://damta.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page I wanted to suggest it because it seems nice with good features and unlimited storage but it has one major flaw which is that if the account is not used over a period of 60 days it may be deactivated. I don'...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I'm honestly not too impressed with Wikidot so far. I can't seem to be even able to search for other users to add.
I guess we should use a different platform. Even a shared google doc would be sufficient for what I would like. Maybe we can use Frath wiki or some other wiki though. If not now, later.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I'm glad to hear :) I am thinking about a potential technique I could use to create different elevations, or the appearance of them. I'll make something to show what I'm talking about when I have the opportunity but it is basically overlaying textures over the map and adding shadow to them but it c...

Re: my phonetics - naturalistic

The consonants do look pretty plausible. If you're worried about having too many fricatives maybe make the retroflexes affricates and lose the voicing distinction on fricatives but it's fine either way. I think it is really interesting you don't have /i/ as you have /u/ as a high vowel and /e/ is ne...

Re: what brought you to conlanging?

I've enjoyed language and the history of languages for a long time. When I was a teenager as I remember thinking deeply quite about English and the other languages I've run into and it was interesting how the different languages did the same things. I saw a lot of irregularities in English and other...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I did see that, good work! At some point we should also do the following with the map: a) Different elevation heights; I assume this to be quite involved - though maybe k123456789y has already given some thought to the terrain when creating the map? b) Rivers, as they will be quite important to the...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

Heh, it took me a while to figure out that the end of your post all got underlined because you typed in [ u] to mean "/u/ as a phone". Sounds like a good answer, though. After all, if the words for "you" and "I" start sounding the same as a language evolves, we all know it will resort to coining ne...

Re: GovLang for Fractal Federation fictional universe

Re: GovLang for Fractal Federation fictional universe

It depends what your motivation and goals are for your sound inventory. If it is to avoid it sounding like English there are probably easier ways to do that.

Re: GovLang for Fractal Federation fictional universe

I have a question about the phonetic inventory. Are all 199 consonants supposed to represent phonemes in your language? Is it the same for the 37 vowels? Breaking up the syllable structure to be prohibit consonant clusters is a good idea for the amount and type of consonants you are using. I notice ...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I posted a very rough sketch of the timeline for the development of my lang from the proto-lang to the Classical stage here in my thread , in case that helps!

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

FWIW, the Proto-Bokisig word for spear is /ɣu.'pɛ.da/, derived from /'ɣu.pɛ/ "sting" + /da/ "hand" I am also curious what the next stage might look like but it depends on what part of the history of the language the events I've described occur at (the original loss of the Bokisig homeland.

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

FWIW, the Proto-Bokisig word for spear is /ɣu.'pɛ.da/, derived from /'ɣu.pɛ/ "sting" + /da/ "hand" (also sometimes used to derive tools/instruments). I've not run it through the sound changes yet though, so it would need to be a fairly early borrowing! (Or I could just give you the word after doing...
