Re: Benjaminmb’s conlangs

Baaźiliitera Verbs Verbs aren’t quite as complicated as nouns are, because they only conjugate for person, voice, tense, and clause. The typical person endings are used for subject, but they can also be used for an object. They are prefixes when used for a subject and suffixes when being used as an...

Re: Benjaminmb’s conlangs

Thanks for your questions. There was initially just a distinction between an alienable and an inalienable genitive, but then more endings were stuck on to make them agree, which then became their own forms. The abbreviations make them agree with the noun they modify in role, and what voice their cla...

Baaźiliitera Cases and Alignment Cases are divided into three major groups: - Core alignment (1-5) - Miscellaneous (6-20) - Genitive (21-28) Apologies for the table not being all that readable. https://i.ibb.co/wW7k2G3/685-C7391-4291-4630-91-FD-F7961-C344-C93.png Here is an example of the alignment...

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

@holbuzvala Thanks for your feedback. This language isn’t supposed to be all that naturalistic, so I’m fine with the alignment being quite strange- I probably should have said that earlier. I’m still working out some parts of the other case system, and I’ll post more about that later. I think I’m go...

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

What would be good case names for this case system: Verbs can be either intransitive or transitive (also ditransitive, but for right now they behave like transitives) Verbs take person endings for subject always, and optionally objects. The subject endings for person can be either passive or active....

Could goats conceivably be bred for pulling carts and riding? 4. What would classifiers come from? 5. Japanese classifiers look l...
