Re: Eathut - 7 phonemes

Neat! ALWAYS enjoy a good old Shem-lang. This one in particular.

But, why <ë̈>? And not <ë>?

Re: Eathut - 8 phonemes

Phonotactics, Part 4. I am doing this post earlier than I thought. THIS post is about the intervocal clusters within the language. Clusters have always been a favorite of mine to try to derive. Unlike most of you, I am sure, phonology has ALWAYS been my favorite aspect of languages, in general. /-p/...

Re: Eathut - 8 phonemes

Phonotactics, Part 3. For the support for this, thank you. If people go back into the archive of this post, they can find what Yatton is inspired by, but, in truth, I have taken a good lot of it from Papuan influence. Anyway, today will be MUCH easier than yesterday. Actually, what comes NEXT is the...

Re: Eathut - 8 phonemes

Phonotactics, Part 2. I think that the two rules above, especially the first, gave some here a HUGE headache in previous explanations. I hope I cleared them up. Today, I am going to tackle consonant cluster boundaries. THIS is where it gets a tiny bit weird. (Sandhi is fun.) Heterorganic syllables a...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

Phonotactics, Part 1. I know I said grammar, but this will cover phonotactics. Earlier, my multiple posts on this confused MANY and I think I found a new way to present it. Firstly, similar consonant avoidance plays a major part in this language. (I wanted to have as much distinguishable allophony a...

Re: Eathut - 8 phoneme MINIMALISM.

Revised phonology: (Believe me, it works...)

/p~f~v~m~b/ <p>
/t~(t)s~l~n~d~ɾ/ <t>
/k~ʃ~ʒ~ŋ~g/ <c>
/h~ʔ~w~j/ <h>
/i~e~j/ <e>
/u~o~w/ <u>
/a~ɑ/ <a>

NEXT: Grammar.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Am asking, how does someone distinguish this? /a ä ɑ/ When speaking, you put your tongue in different positions when pronouncing each of the three. When listening, some part of your brain interprets the signals and identifies their acoustic differences to distinguish them. This looks like a facetio...

Re: Kojikeng / Kodikeng

"Word internal clusters: Only permissible clusters are nasal + oral stop or velar stop + glide." I get the "velar-ity" of the clusters. But when you mention "oral" above...how does that differ from velar? I mean just to narrow it down to /k g/. Sometimes nasals are considered nasal stops (as oppose...

Re: Feedback on Nactlylf

You asked someone above about your diphthongs, involving their rarity, and what you should do about them. Here's MY take. As one could expect, you have the TWO types of diphthongs: rising and falling. I presume your take on the rarity of your diphthongs is that you may feel that you have too many, w...

Re: Great Ahu Empire (Ια Αηυ Βαια) Conlang Scratchpad

Are all of these click-y (and some not so much so) languages apart of the same family, or, at least, having some close-enough relationship, are neighbors? This post is full of strange phonologies (as should the way of click language flattery go), as well as, strange transcription...so forgive my per...
