Re: Lexember 2019

I like this tradition a lot! I want to make Ak'aleniw words this time, but it might be easier to stick with familiar Źilaa Ruńu, since this is going to be my busiest December ever. I guess I can always mix the two.

Re: Miscellaneous fun facts about your conlang to share and know

Pekaw (placeholder name) has prenasalized stops, which I haven't seen in too many conlangs (although I don't peruse other people's phonemic inventories often, beyond this site. Źilaa Ruńu also has them :) Ak'aleniw is spoken in a fantasy world by a group of people who are able to travel through a s...

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

@sangi39: Thanks!
Personally, thinking harder because people see what I make might actually hinder me from deciding anything at all! That's one reason I have posted very little about my main conlang, although I have more stuff in my notes. It can work better for a side project, I hope.

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

I have a couple of early conlang sketches and I'm wondering if posting them would be a good idea.
So, people who have posted here about conlangs in very early stages of development - did it help you develop them? And would a lack of feedback discourage you?

Re: Comfortable

Not a native speaker, but let's see: Both "comfortable" and "interesting" are always 3 syllables for me, but I've heard people pronounce them as four syllables. I didn't know this was considered more correct. I think I've never heard /ˈfɛb.ɹuˌɛɹi/ in my life, but maybe I just didn't notice? What I k...
