Proto-Waishu

Hello! This version of my new conlang is rather early, but it has most of its core mechanics in place, and is at a fairly usable state, so I am putting it up for review, and criticism is always appreciated. Phonology: /p b t d k g/ <p b t d k g> /m n ɲ/ <m n nj> /f s ʃ x/ <f s sh x> /l j w/ <l j w> ...

Re: Phonology choice

Overall it's a nice, simple SAE kind of phonology but there's a couple of orthography questions I have: 1. why <v> for /f/ when you haven't even used <f>? 2. why <x> for /x/ when you haven't even used <h>? 3. why is your uvular trill <r> grouped with the nasals? 4. is your schwa actually phonemic? ...

Phonology choice

Hello! You may have seen my previous post about my phonology, which I posted a couple weeks ago and found an answer to. Well, school got in the way of conlanging for a bit and I was super busy during that time, and looking back, the phonology did not look the way I wanted it to, and the language I w...

Re: Agglutination/Proto Language

This clarification helped a lot. It was very confusing initially, so thanks for clearing that up!

Can't thank you enough for your help! [xD]

Have a nice day!

Re: Agglutination/Proto Language

Gee, seems like it is always you answering all my questions. [O.O] On the topic of your answer, I have a few questions. Language A: non-derived roots (coming from adjectives in the proto-language), "fossilised" deverbal adjectives (derived from verbs in the proto-language, but that method of derivat...

Agglutination/Proto Language

Guten Abend! I have a question regarding agglutination in synthetic and polysynthetic languages, and another regarding parts of speech in a proto-lang. My current system of agglutination involves starting with a subject pronoun or object, and the gluing on words and affixes. For instance: Kofemensen...

Phonology Choice

Hello! It's me again! >:) So I am working on a new conlang, which I want to be another "practice" conlang, so I am going to try some different things. Naltal (my first one) was, as expected, quite bad, but I feel like it helped a lot in terms of the process. My questions is this: Is there any sort o...

Re: Naltal

I am going to use a numbered list to answer because I have no idea how to quote specific parts of your text. [xP] 1. Verb roots, adjectives, conjunctions, and adverbs CAN NOT end with a vowel. "Conjugated" verbs (after tense and aspect suffixes apply), nouns, place markers, and prepositions MUST end...

Naltal

Hello and welcome to my first conlang page (yaaay)! Although the language is not completely polished yet, I feel like getting feedback would be a thing you should do, so I have decided to post a significant piece for criticism, here we go I guess! [:D] Naltal's phonology is as follows: Consonants: /...

Re: What do I need to know?

Hello, I have a few questions about what I should learn concerning conlang creation. I am very new to this forum, as I decided to use it as a learning opportunity for conlangs (that's what everyone does, right? [:S] ), but I am still a little bit confused as to what I should familiarize myself with...
