Re: Casia

I like this, especially the phonology. But that orthography makes my head hurt. Lol.

There's only one other conlang I've ever seen use all 26 letters like you do: Muplo ['mu.plø].

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

I remember posing this on a board, years ago. Made one guy go kinda nuts thinking about what he could do with this: tone, suprasegmentals, etc. Better question is, can you survive without a tongue? I'm sure you can, but I imagine it would be aesthetically dull and rather hard. Thankfully, that one a...

Re: Great Agwu Empire (Εεα Αϝυ Βαϝα) Conlang Scratchpad

For the post I was about to make, I typed in "Lake Baikal." What I mistook, and mixed up, was Lake Vostok, in Antarctica. (I didn't KNOW there WAS a Lake Baikal, unless by SOME unconscious memory of seeing Baikal, referencing a "lake.") I meant it ALL to refer to the language's unforseen and, thus, ...

Re: A ridiculous conlang: how to?

First edition Ithkuil. A fair statement; I myself once described the original as "You Head A-splode: the Language." I must say, though...Ithkuil's phonology is NOT anymore weird than the phonemic wet-dream that is Proto-Northwest-Caucasian (barring the vowels, which aren't available for assessment)...

Re: Spiú - A monosyllabic descendant of Spanish

Very intriguing. These words look kind of like the same type of words as we construct for Old Chinese. Seriously, not that it was a secret, but this COULD be the process BY which Chinese actually came about from longer words. For this, I could see tone evolving out of the deletion of coda consonants...

Re: Crona (redux)

Plurality: One-syllable words end in /m n p t k f s x l/. Each get /-t/. /-m/ = /-mt/ = /-mp/, those ending in /-t/ get/-in/. Two-syllable words end in /n p t k s l/; rule for /-t/ applies.

Re: Haasvian

Cool. French DOES use them -- so does English -- but as contractions, for a vowel lost in rapid speech, as far as I understand them. As you develop Haasvian, perhaps you could detail the sound changes that led to EACH time the apostrophes are used. It CAN be the glottal stop, but you COULD also use ...

Yes, that does answer my questions. The truth is, what you explained, I already could have inferred. I was hoping I would have been explained something that didn't appear to be a re-branding of the transgender/nonbinary thing here on Earth. That's why I gave the rhetorical idea of a functionally thr...

Re: Haasvia

Do non-genders participate in intercourse? If so, how? If not, why? ARE their genitalia similar to Homo Sapien genitalia? WAS there a point when the culture recognised ONLY two biological sexes for procreation, or DID all three genders perform a function in intercourse? DO non-genders actually belie...

Re: Haasvian

As a long-time conlanger to a new one -- first off, welcome -- may I ask (since I've always wanted to ask someone who uses apostrophes so...vigorously), what do the apostrophes ACTUALLY represent, phonetically? I notice this a lot in new conlanger's languages, thus my desire to ask...

Re: Crona (redux)

I do want to post something new about this language: words for body parts. I've been considering something interesting: inalienable plurality. The root for the part of a body with symmetry will be, inherently, pluralized. As much, the genitive is unnecessary. <euzi> "feet" <yos euzi> "one feet (foot...

Little update. I decided to give my four Diphthongs their own symbol.

+1 like to the onset clusters, word coda, diphthongs and triphthongs. Most of these are also used in my conlang [:D] Thank you. I must admit that this is becoming more complex than I first worked it.

Re: Crona (redux)

Not sure what I could help you with tbh. My conlang has almost the same number/type of front and back clusters as yours, but it is not complex, linguistically. In fact, the clusters and diphthongs actually make the language easier for me. The guideline that I use is basically just "Can I pronounce ...
