Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

I'm sorry, but I have to drop out.. Life has a strange way of getting in the way of conlanging. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

I've decided not to use Cajun in this relay, it simply isn't developed enough. Could I use Ayuashiqua instead?

I apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Does word order affect the placement of smaller word classes such as articles, demonstratives, numerals, adpositions, and others?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've done a lot of work with Oddúhath Claire's basic syntax (noun phrases, possession order, dependent clauses, etc). Also I translated a sentence to test it's syntax. But it's mostly an excuse to have fun with the lexicon O malí madd coiniollanmw yen domhan. /ɔ ma.liː mað kɔɪ.nɪɔ.ɬan.mə jɛn dɔm.han/

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

English speakers are incredibly frustrating... I'm trying to explain to a relative that she is pronouncing Onehunga as /ʌnihʌŋʌ/, and not as /ʌnihʌŋga/. But for some reason she thinks there's a /g/ in Onehunga, and she keeps telling me that I "need to make it softer".

Re: The Kovur and Language

Wolves would have a lot of trouble with bilabials. And dentals don't seem feasible to me(sharp teeth + tongue?). Vowels might be pretty different.

Take my ideas with a grain of salt, i know very little about wolf anatomy.

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

Theoretically, you could even have prenasalised preaspirated stops, but that's getting kinda ridiculous since AFAIK no language has those (and there are no results on Google for ʰⁿt, ⁿʰt, etc. or "prenasalised preaspirated", etc.) and they'd most likely simply be clusters of /h/ and a prenasalised ...

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

In my conlang Manchi, stops have a five way distinction. Voiceless, voiced, voiceless aspirated, breathy voice stops, and prenasalised stops. How realistic is this, and what should i change?

Re: Itasaq- my go at a triconsonantal conlang

I think quite a lot of people assume tri-consonantal systems must function the same way as in Semitic languages, but I don't see why Carson's idea here can't work. I actually quite like the idea of having strong/weak stems with prefixes being applied to the weak stem. Ok, that makes sense. As an as...

Re: Itasaq- my go at a triconsonantal conlang

What does this "inflected' form do? I should have clarified. The inflected form takes other case prefixes. I just haven't figured out what those will be yet. Let's say genitive is ū-, then to form that you would use the inflected stem form to make ūCāCCa I.E the same word used before would be ūsāql...
