Re: Roleplaying Organization Thread

Not too late for me to join is it? I've got a character ready: Nabuá-Toŋko / nə.bʷa to.ŋko / Nabuá comes from one of the clans of the eastern mountains. He was a hunter, forager and herbalist, training to become a seer; until he began delving into darker arts. Even the great war-chief Kútuazí-Gáduí ...

Might I enquire why the translation for penis sounds so... small? :wat:
"big" is also a little word, while "abbreviation" is not.

the LCK phrased it better, granted.
It's homophonous with the word for "big".
And in Maori, 'iti' means small.

Re: Drugs & Alcohol

Marijuana, coffee, guarana, alcohol, and magic mushrooms in Jtaraecto. Coffee is a luxury imported from the unnamed tropical islands south of Tozana, and a 1/3-kilo bag is worth 4 silver, which is roughly equivalent to 36 USD. Most of the coffee trade is controlled by pirates, as coffee is illegal b...

Your notation might be a bit backwards. Phon eme s are put between slashes Phones are put between square brackets Ah, okay. I'll fix that. Also, I suspect you may have meant the consonant Palatal lateral approximant ʎ 'LATIN SMALL LETTER TURNED Y' (U+028E) as an allophone for / r /, instead of the ...

S ôts ( Th oughts )? No. That's horrible to do to English speakers. Is there a reason why you don't want to just devise a romanization system for each language?

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Proto-Tsiwáka

/m n ŋ-ɴ/ <m n ng>
/p t k q/ <p t k q>
/t͡s t͡ʃ t͡ɬ/ <ts tj tl>
/ɸ-f θ s ʁ-h/ <f th s qh>
/ʋ l-ɬ/ <v l>

/a-ɐ i-ɪ u-ɯ-ʊ/ <a i u>
/a: i: u:/ <á í ú>


I'm thinking this will be my first language using triconsonantal roots, purely because I like the pair 'Tsáwak, Tsiwáka'.
