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...

Re: Á Quetë Quenyanen!

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". Translations into English (the last by Edgar Alfred Bowring) are below the Quenya text. Hope you find something [:)] . •Man nortëa acca telwa t...

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 ...

Re: Äväriäŋkäitää: an introduction.

OK, a few things. So ogoneks are a very odd choice as stress markers, they're pretty much always nasalisation (and in the one exception, Lithuanian, afaict they reflect old nasal vowels anyway). I already knew that. Actually, I based my conlang's Romanisation from Lithuanian (at least in that aspec...

Nłōkjenkā̤itää

Nłokjenkaitää (not Ą̈väriäŋką̈itää anymore) is my first conlang on this year 2019, I've been working on it since a week ago, and it's based on my very first conlang (at least, in the matter of verbal declensions and some other details). Its main phonoaesthetical influencers are Finnish and Basque or...

Re: Conlang breakthroughs thread

Since November 2018, when I started focusing on Quenya, I began trying to make my conlangs as similar as possible to it, which led me to disaster. I kept some time focused on Quenya, but then I realised that I was just going to lose all my conlanging skills and now I'm trying to remake something ori...

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

Thank you all for the comments above. Finally I could get rid of all that Quenya case suffixes, so now I am conlanging again. I did not hope creating any other conlangs, and just because I could not agree with the orthography I was trying to design! Thank to God the situation has become better. But ...

Hello.

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

Hello, does someone know what is the apostrophe in Quenya used for? Like in "...lumenn' omentielvo." instead of lúmenna or in "...úcaremmar sív' emme apsenet..."? I think it could be used to replace vowels at the end of a word if the next word starts with a vowel, but I'm not quite sure on that.

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

Hello. I would want to be aware of what do you conlangers think of a conlang which marks diacritically vowels in syllables not belonging to the lexeme of a word, or shorter: should every declension in my conlang contain a diacritic over its vowel, in my case, a circumflex? Let's take an example from...
