I like this project.

Re: Development thread of my newest project

Uses of the tenses There are three tenses: Non-Future, Future, and Perfect. In principle, there is no morphological constraint for forming a Future-Perfect tense, but I find it redundant. Aspect can be marked derivationally, but often it's lexical or inferred from the context, i.e. there is more cod...

Re: Development thread of my newest project

Nouns Cases There are 5 or 4 cases, depending if Exclamative is a case or some deictic marking that only appears with the nominative. Morphologically, there are 5 case anyways. Nominative Exclamative Genitive Locative Essive All Nominative and Exclamative appear in the same syntactic positions. They...

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

@Omzinesy Is the thing you mark with C+w labialization, velarization, or labio-velarization? Many Native American languages use <ł> to mark the lateral fricative. In Polish it has been a velarized lateral, nowadays its [w] though. <rh> or <hr> is maybe the most typical way to mark a sonorant being ...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

Adjectives The adjective system is inspired by that of French. Gender is not marked in nouns, but there are nouns of all genders in all declensions. Most adjectives, contrarily, mark gender by stem changes. Adjectives in the noun-modifying/attribute function do not have case inflection. In a predica...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

The perfect is formed with different person suffixes. Furthermore, there perfect has an ABS-ERG alignment so that the verb agrees with S and O arguments only. In the table the SENSORY epistemic marker is also written because the vowel nasalizes in 2nd persons. SG1 -anja [ãɲa] (the EGOPHORIC form is ...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

A new morphology of the transitive verb suffixes. I ended up making them a full syllable long, which makes it easier to find enough suffixes, without using every consonant as a suffix. The solution looks simple but has portmanteaus. I find it the best of the solutions I have produced this far for th...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

I'm still not happy with the verb agreement marking. Anyways, I go on with the verb. The verb template is: root-TENSE-MOOD-EPIST.C-PERSON The idea for the mood system is borrowed from Greenlandic. So there are finite moods for subordinate clauses as well, where many other languages would use conjun...

Re: Omzinian Scrap thread

The language has a split alignment so that the perfect (which does not equal perfective) has an absolutive-ergative alingment while the other tense/aspects have a nominative-accusative alignment. Morpholologically, there is though no difference between Nominative and Accusative. The difference is sy...

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

I still have problems with my cross-referencing morphology. There are 8 person/numeber/gender inflections for both the subject and the object: sg1, pl1exclusive, pl1inclusive, sg2, pl2, sg3masculine, sg3feminine, and pl3. That makes 8^2= 64 transitive cross-referencing portmanteau morphs. When 1st p...

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

Does anyone know of any resources for learning about how relative clauses are handled in polypersonal/polysynthetic marked languages? Or failing that, can you write some ideas here if you know them off hand? I guess subject/object agreement doesn't have to affect relative clauses very much. - Finit...
