Re: Apparently Old Prussian underwent the Great Vowel Shift

It seems a little easier to swallow once you learn that Late Latin underwent [a:] > [e:] into Old French (while short [a] was retained) That's not the way I learned it. French is like any other Romance language in that /a:/ and /a/ had merged by the Vulgar Latin stage. Vulgar Latin /a/ became /ɛ/ i...

Re: Conlang Survey 2020 Result

I'm depressingly average in almost every category; either the most or second-most common in every category. Nothing much that's surprising, although I was expecting there to be fewer people with scripts for their conlangs and less SVO langs. Also the fact that there's at least one 5-10 year old acco...

Re: A modern Faliscan descendant?

If Faliscan was a dialect of Latin like Bakkum claims it is then the descendant could descend from a dialect of Vulgar Latin / Proto-Romance with Faliscan features, but mutually intelligible with other Vulgar Latins. Well, that's different, but okay. Sorry, I didn't explain it fully the first time....

Re: A modern Faliscan descendant?

Of course the result would be a separate language, I was just wondering whether it would be similar enough to the other Romance languages to be classed as one, or something much more different. Definitionally, the result wouldn't be a Romance language, since Romance languages are all descended from...

Re: A modern Faliscan descendant?

Anyway, there are a couple of ways I would consider going about doing this. First would be making the descendant a romlang which happens to derive from Faliscan; Bakkum argues that it's just a dialect of Latin and it would be plausible to have just a normal (if divergent to the level of French) rom...

Re: A modern Faliscan descendant?

I should standardize Faliscan orthography, but I don't know how to do it or what should I consider. There are instances where the spelling of a word varies, e.g. the first person singular pronoun eqo is also spelled eco , and eko . I'd say the best bet is just spelling it as if it were Latin, so ec...

Re: A modern Faliscan descendant?

I've toyed around with an idea like this before, but was stumped by lack of resources. However, Faliscan is the second best-attested one. Bakkum's Faliscan grammar, which is the most complete resource, includes a discussion of sound changes from PIE to Faliscan so you could probably reconstruct some...

I don't have much experience with Germanic langs so I concentrate more on romlangs. Also I forgot about this a bit.
