Re: Coveny's ConLang

Nope, I stopped working on it. I hired some people to develop my website ForDebating.com and they couldn't get the job done and strung me along. So I finally decided to learn to program and develop myself. I gave that project more priority than this one and have been working on that for several mont...

Re: Coveny's ConLang

This is called a featural writing system. You may want to have a look at Hangeul, Korean's writing system which is the only natural writing system that follows that principle. In fact, you may have already had a look at it, because your writing system looks similar. However, I can't really tell abo...

Coveny's ConLang

So I've been working on my ConLang and I'd like to get some feedback.

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

The concept of the language that it's built for efficiency where speakers can convey a lot of information quickly. It's possible that your goal of "efficiency" and your goal of "learnability" will fight each other. Thank you, that's some really good stuff there that's going to take me some time to ...

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

Difficulties non-native speakers have with phonemes, tend more to be about distinguishing (in hearing and/or in speech) one phoneme from another in a particular spot, rather than in telling whether a phoneme is present or absent. Or at least that's my impression.. Another difficulties non-native sp...

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

I'd put the image in a spoiler, but since they don't work at the moment, I'll just link it here . That's much more in line with what I'm looking for, and the image is pretty cool as well. Thanks. I'm trying to go through it and look for the total number of native speakers rather than just "a distin...

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

.... has anyone else attempted .... to find common phonetic sounds across major languages? You could look at UPSID Sound Selection and find all the phonemes that occur in more than, or at least, some fraction (say 50%) of their sample's languages; for a more up-to-date notation and database with a ...

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

In listening to them, from the IPA chart I can't tell a difference in the "or" ones so that makes sense. (or at least as much sense as I can make of this stuff at my low level of understanding) The upside down R sounds super strange to me... From listening to the /ʂ/, /ʃ /, and /ɕ/ to my inexperienc...

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

I think these are almost all normal IPA, except the alveolar/palatal-alveolar fricatives; they're just hard to read because the image is grainy. in order through the consonants and then vowels, based on the languages involved, I'm pretty sure these are: Consonants : /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, /g/, /q...

Re: Morneau phonetic alphabet

What exactly would be the criteria for identity of segments across languages? Well Ricks criteria was "Choose phonemes that most people in the world already know or can learn to pronounce easily", and that is exactly what I would very much like to find. Identical phonetics (probably impossible), id...

Morneau phonetic alphabet

Hello. I posted this in the you thread but maybe this is a better place to post this.

Also has anyone else attempted to ...
