Re: Sylisc (Germanic lang) 0.4

Verbs Verbs do not agree person. There three tenses, with different time references, present, past and pluperfect. All of the tenses have a finite and infinite form. The infinite form is formed by adding suffix -n to the respective finite form. The infinite form is historically a merger of the infi...

Re: Egloojo

The passive is formed by prestopping the first consonant of the verb root if the consonant is a sonorant or adding a + gemination of the consonant if it is an obstruent.

"ne" means 'have'. Its passive form is "dne" 'lie, be there'.
"ky" means 'use'. Its passive form is "akky" 'be used'.

Re: Egloojo

Verbs code at least tense and voice. There is no one way to express negation. Some verbs have a negative counterpart with similar enough semantics. For some verbs only their complements are negated, e.g. "be no X". All verbs have an agent-oriented version and a patient-oriented form. I think they ca...

Egloojo

Egllo-oyo is my newest quick project. Egllo is the name of the people and oyo just means 'language'. The idea for the lang comes from Whitewings' Oraata and massive use of compounding. I have of course tried it many times but I'll do it again. Verb roots are a closed class of around 30 members. I'm ...

Re: Siglisc (Germanic lang) 4.0

The singular imperative is alike the present form. Of the verb "sain" 'to be' the long form "sai" is used instead of "s".
The plural imperative is alike the infinitive.

(1) Duh de! 'Do it (sg)'
(2) Duhn de! 'Do it (pl)'

Some Swedish dialects have -n as the plural imperative marker.

Re: Development thread of my newest project

It seems impossible to develop so huge a cross-referencing system. I think direct-inverse system is handy for this lang, and I haven't tested it before. Using inverse system diminishes the number of person endings to half. So the shoul only be F.M instead of F>M and M>F. I decided earlier that ther...

Note on terminology Do I understand right that what you call auxiliaries do not inflect and what you call participles do? Usually the criteria for defining a word a finite verb is "verby" inflection, especially that of TAM. Whit the info have I would call your participles just normal finite verbs an...

Re: Siglisc (Germanic lang) 4.0

Future can be expressed with the present or auxiliary sca (cognate to English shall). (3a) Ek muc mye fren morgi. ~ (3b) Ek sca mucn mye fren morgi. ‘I (will) meet my friend tomorrow.’ I'll change the future tense. Future is expressed by verb gan 'to go'. If gan is used as a motion verb, its verbal...

Re: Goþesch Razde

Have you now introduced rounded front vowels into your lang or is this some descendant of what you developed the first?
It would be simpler if you make another thread and just cross-link it with this one, if they are two langs.

What dialects are they?
And i mean the non-sibilant fricative, more or less similar to English <r>
