Re: What did you accomplish today?

No, of course it is. That pterosaurs ever existed is not fantasy, but modern-day pterosaurs exist only in your head and are not real and hence are fantasy. Keenir: I'm confused.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Keenir: I'm confused. Which part did you not get? The part that previously existing things were not fantasy or the part where formerly existing things having modern day continuation (only in your head) is only pretend fantasy fiction? If the latter: show me the pterosaur! I'm also not sure you know ...

No, you just back to whatever you were doing before.

I have settled on a pattern of nominal coordinating conjunctions.

Now he's accusing me of being the nonthinker. I give up on another.

A coherent and pleasing set of diacritics. It's nice to not just use IPA.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I'm trying pure dependent marking for a change and it's doing me good. The phonotactics and phoneme inventory are complicated enough to not be too boring and yet accommodating to easter eggs and not too out there. Roots so far are a pleasing balance of monosyllables and not-so-monosyllables. Many cr...

Re: Karèwaho

The -kka- infix is formed by infixing -kka- between the tense suffix or verb stem and the personal suffix: It's really not an infix if it isn't splitting up a single morpheme. Isn't this a bit boringly simple? What about the Hungarian vowel harmony where /e/ alternates with several back vowels depe...

Re: Language of three

Hmm, as it stands this system is actually a good deal more unnatural than the parent language (notable points include: the only voiceless consonants being palatalisaed; having a /ʃ ʃʲ/ contrast but no /s/; Basically everything you said was otherwise fine, but this bit was not so egregious. Having /...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Per usual, I mostly did lexical work, but unusually was rather productive at it. Came up with a rendaku-like process, threw in some derivational affixes, a few easter eggs, predicate syntax. Kinda not today but complementizer syntax was also worked on.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

This feels anticlimactic, but:
/ɲ c ɟ ç ʝ ʎ/
<ņ ţ ḑ ş z̧ ļ>

Beats Cj diagrams because I don't have to worry about ambiguity with clusters or awkward silent h's to prevent said ambiguity. Also doesn't compete visually with tone diacritics above vowels. <z̧ál> over <žál>.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Cedillas for palatalizing. So clear. So digraph-avoiding. Aesthetically pleasing. Also minor things like a tone sandhi rule, TA(M) forms, a classifier, solidifying on a number for genders, the former of attributive adjectives vs predicative ones and so forth. I was unusually productive today without...

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

To add another option to Lambuzhao's prefix idea, you could start from trans (cf. Fr. très ). Or really from any adjective, adverb or preposition that could come to mean "very" (plene, fors, tantus, sic …). I think in his original post he was looking for 1-word COMPAR and SUPER forms, rather than a...

Re: Yay or Nay?

However, they included no languages that have marked nominative with un marked accusative. There may be no such languages. Now that's just not true. The 6 marked nominative languages are exactly those languages. Languages with marked accusative and marked or unmarked nominative are all lumped into ...
