Re: Thak's Something something scratchpad

Instead of calling it Nominative 1 and Nominative 2 or some other such thing, I have decided to just co-opt the Ergative for the purposes of my needs for this language. The language marks volition with certain verbs (if necessary), and when a volic-distinction is required, the language will mark th...

Re: Language practice thread

我們看了《Pitch Perfect 2》、還看《Unfriended》。兩部電影都是美國電影。 We saw Pitch Perfect 2 and Unfriended. Both are American movies. Est-ce que Unfriended est aussi nulle qu'il semble? Is Unfriended as crap as it looks? 奇怪,不過有意思的概念。我們覺得那部電影一點兒可怕。 Dhana ilikuwa geni lakini poa kidogo. Tuliwaza sinema hii ilitisha vido...

Very chaotic thoughts at the moment, sorry [D;] I haven't fully worked out the phonology yet, though I have the vowels. This is just something I am toying around with at the moment. Just a few ideas I want to play with, see how it works. <'owheno> /ʔo̞.ˈʍe̞.n̪o̞/ means "words". It's not likely to be...

Can you give the IPA anyway? Because even with consonants, there is a great variation between dialects insofar as English pronunciation.

That is to say, is your <t> [tʰ][t][ɾ][ʔ][t̚]?

Re: False cognates

Swahili and Japanese also share a locative marker, <-ni>, but Swahili is more relaxed with usage (interestingly, and also unrelated, when a Swahili noun takes the locative marker -ni, it changes noun class.)
