Re: "Neutral" accents in second languages

My question to you: If you speak multiple languages, have you acquired any regional dialectal features, or lost any which you "should" have? More of a follow-up question but do you mean: a) that we've picked up features from our second languages and started applying them to our first language b) th...

Re: "Neutral" accents in second languages

Slipped my mind for a moment that English was a pluricentric language! [O.O] I’ve always operated under the impression that General American didn’t exist as a native dialect, existing mostly on TV or in the speech of L2+ learners. I’ve spoken like this for as long as I can remember (I exhibit the co...

"Neutral" accents in second languages

Comrades, I've come to notice that I more or less lack particular regionalisms in any of the languages which I speak. I spent the first decade of my childhood in Puerto Rico, and I grew up speaking English and Spanish in more or less equal measure. I've resided in South Florida since then, and my En...

Re: Hittite diachronic language

Verb stems ending in a consonant are conjugated as follows. har- (to have) 1SG, 1PL 2SG, 2PL 3SG, 3PL non-past harǝm, haruǝn harǝ, harentǝ harǝz, ha...

Mine would be :bra: :por: cegante - blinding. I only learnt this because cegador isn't actually a real word in Portuguese, tragically enough.

Re: each other

Nasiǝl tends to use the mediopassive voice for this sort of thing when it's as the object of a sentence, and taħsan (together) or istarna (within) when it would be a prepositional phrase in English.

Nouns The vast majority of nouns are declined according to a simple paradigm. Most inanimate/neuter nouns have fallen into this declension, with some frequent ones sticking around as irregular. antuşa (man) NOM: antuşa, antuşe ACC: antuşan, antuşu GEN: antuşa, antuşa DAT: antuǝş, antuşa Using the g...

Hittite diachronic language

The Hittite Empire was ending in flames in the 12th century BCE. The Sea Peoples, the Assyrians, and the Egyptians were all encroaching in on the southern marches of the country, Hattusa was razed—burnt to the ground by invaders. The Hittites, people of the horse, the chariot, and of a thousand gods...

Re: National Anthems

Call me biased, but I love the Puerto Rican national anthem, despite the lack of a flag. However, it's been horribly mistreated—the original lyrics were a revolutionary call to arms, but the territorial government changed the lyrics because they were held to be far too inflammatory for official adop...

Re: Modern Hittite lang: realistic?

I find that I've pretty much decided on using the Hittite dative Balkan style as a "to x, y " dative of possession, as most of y'all suggested—it seems a bit more satisfying. Here's a short bit of text in Nasiǝl, using Aesop's famous The North Wind and the Sun: The North Wind and the Sun were disput...

Modern Hittite lang: realistic?

I've been working on a conlang where a descendant of Hittite survives deep in the mountains of Cappadocia (originally titled Cappadocian, or Nasiǝl natively), but I've run into somewhat of an issue. In Hittite animate nouns the nominative singular and both the genitive singular and plural have the s...
