Re: Nlokian 5

Classical Nlokian features three main types of verbs, depending on the final vowel of the infinitive: -a, -u, and -i verb classes. Spoken Nlokian retained the three of them, although the -i class dropped the /i/ from the infinitive. Each verb class is easily recognizable not just because of the vowe...

Re: Nlokian 5

Syntax . Classical Nlokian is strongly head-final: •Adjectives follow nouns. •Verb auxiliaries come after main verbs. •Relative clauses follow the noun they modify. That’s head-initial. Oh my god... It seems I've got my wires crossed, I actually had almost no time to type that post accurately. I wa...

Nlokian 5

Hello. I recently came up with a conlang I've been developing since July 7th, although most of the actual conlanging process has been done in the couple last days. So, as the title might suggest, this is actually my fifth attempt to develop a conlang with the same name (sort of loyalism (although th...

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

Maybe I'm contradicting myself right now according to what I previously said, but the main problems don't concern grammar. I kind of know what I want my conlang to be like in terms of grammar, but I want it to be as a priori stic as possible I can definitely understand wanting your conlangs to be "...

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

With this I don't mean that I'm used to compare myself with Tolkien (since doing so would be at least one of the worst sins in conlanging history (even if no one could know)), not at all, but rather that the perfection of his languages inhibits me from creating other things. Hopefully I won't sound...

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

Edit2: Nloki, if you're only going to compare your own languages to a singular source of inspiration you're never going to match it except by copying it. Tolkien didn't have access to anywhere near the diversity of language grammars we now enjoy. I guarantee for instance you can find different and ...

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

Thank you Sumeli. Now, another "question" (not to say an extensive topic): For a long time I've been (psychologically) unable to conlang, and I need help. Yes, I know this sounds kind of weird (or even worse), but I'll better set a context and explain in detail. Right now I don't remember when did I...

Hi. I've come up with three brief questions I'd be very thankful for someone to answer. •Are Nominative-Accusative languages likely to evolve into Ergative-Absolutive or viceversa? Are both types of alignment systems more common to evolve into split Ergative? •Is a conlang evolved from an a priori ...

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

Hello. While developing my protolang's phonology, I've been wondering: are proto-languages likely to develop allophony from the very beginning or not? For instance, my proto-lang's phonetic inventory is thus: /m n ɲ ŋ/ /p b t̪ d̪ c ɟ k g/ /ɸ θ ɬ s̠ ɹ̠̊˔ ç h/ /l/ /i iː ʏ ʏː u uː/ /e eː ø øː o oː/ /æ ...

Re: Nlokian 3

NOUNS & PRONOUNS: Nlokian has a moderately high degree of synthesis, with nouns getting inflected into ten grammatical cases (Intransitive, Ergative, Accusative, Genitive, Dative, Instrummental, Commitative, Locative, Ablative and Allative) and three numbers (Collective, Singulative and Distrubutiv...

Nlokian 3

So here comes my third attempt to present may a-priori latest conlang Nlokian, which has undergone major changes since last time I posted anything on the matter. As even phonology has been modified, I'll start from there. PHONOLOGY: ¶Classical Nlokian: •Phonetic Inventory: /m n ɲ ŋ/ /p b t̪ d̪ c ɟ k...
