Re: Presenting Nlokian 2

VERBS: Nlokian verbs get inflected into absolutive marking, and tense, aspect and mood fusionalized into suffixes. Nlokian has a purely Ergative-Absolutive alignment. This may be noticed while comparing intransitive and transitive constructions: •Intransitive Morphosyntax: Verb-CONJ-ABS. •Transitiv...

Re: Presenting Nlokian 2

NOUNS, PRONOUNS & ADJECTIVES: Last post was about phonology. Now we have already dealt with that, lets focus on nouns. Regarding noun inflection, Nlokian has a moderately high degree of synthesis. Nouns get inflected to three numbers (Collective, Singulative and Distributive) and ten cases (Absolut...

Presenting Nlokian 2

Hello. I has been a long time since last time I posted something here. In fact it has been nearly three months (inaccurately, I have to say) since I deleted my last creation and stopped conlanging at all. Maybe it was because of lack of time, or because of my too inhibiting self-critism... I don't k...

Compound generator thread

Hello. Quite recently, I started wondering what kind of roots could provide semantical meaning for certain compounds, such as abstract concepts like "enthropy", to give a clear (not quite common, though) example. Which roots would derive or attach together in order to create such complex vocabulary?...

Re: Could [ l̰ ], [n͡l], [lⁿ] and [nˡ] be the same phoneme?

Thank you very much, Creyeditor. I'm sorry for not answering before, in fact I was quite embarrassed after realising that my question was worse than silly... Anyway, I have come up with a new pair of doubts about phonology so far: •Would it be sensible to use a set of obstruents where some of them a...

Could [ l̰ ], [n͡l], [lⁿ] and [nˡ] be the same phoneme?

While trying to create a set of lateral consonants for my conlang, Nlokian, I noticed that the digraph "nl" in its name wasn't just a pair of separate phonemes. Try to pronunce [n] and [l] simultaneously. The problem is I found nothing on the Internet about nasalized lateral approximants so I quite ...

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

I'm assuming plain < ā > is already being used, so have you considered < a̋ > or < â >? I think I'll take the one with the circumflex. Thanks for that. And another question: can collective, singulative, singular and plural numbers exist and a same language? Would it be logical or naturalistic to us...

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

Sorry for my previous question, I don't know what I was thinking on. Next question: which letter would you use to romanize an stressed [æ] sound? First, an unestressed [æ] is spelled as <ä> in my conlang, and I use macrons to mark stress. Though I know <ǟ> is used in some languages' romanizations, I...

Hello. Nearly three months ago I studied Quenya and did some translations. I would be really pleased if someone could correct this one; Goethe's "Erlkönig".

Re: Nłokjenkaitää discussion thread.

Ok so that's clear now, thank you. Now I have another doubt: is it effective to some point to mark noun definiteness sintactically instead of using a declension? And another question: in a language with more than one noun declension, are cases' suffixes very different between a declension and anothe...

Re: Ą̈väriäŋką̈itää: an introduction.

And how could I fit passive or antipassive voices in a tripartite alignment (ergative, accusative and unmarked intransitive)? Can both voices coexist in a language's verbal system? Yes. It happens that the passive is more readily useful in nominative-accusative languages, and the antipassive is mor...

Re: Ą̈väriäŋką̈itää: an introduction.

I've chosen a tripartite alignment for it, but I've started feeling that split-ergativity would be also useful in this conlang, or maybe even the antipassive voice (which I haven't understood yet: how is to omit P useful to some point? I would be very thankful if someone could explain it here) The ...
