Re: PreProtoPaleoCaspian A

Spoken at around 5500-5000 BCE by a group of hunter gatherers in southwestern Siberia. Their language appears to be related to, or have borrowed from, ProtoAmerind and Nostratic, most likely a distant cousin. Proto-Nostratic was spoken earlier than 5500 BCE if it existed at all, and Proto-Amerind w...

Agent Patient Word Order

Is there any precedant for Agent Patient Word orders among natlangs?

If not, it is to be declared the defining feature of a PaleoCaspian language. No clue how such a word order could arise, I just picked it because I liked it.

Re: What kind of conlanger are you?

I was a very serious scrapper. Then I was a scrapper that made 10,000 of the same thing because I couldn't stop getting into arguements with myself as to what I wanted, what I needed, how to fit that with what writing system, etc... So after a long time of: I want a complex phonology and a syllabary...

Re: Phonological Questions: Ask and Answer

Am I the only one who usually aspirates most of the "p"s in english? No this is a normal english thing. You probably also do it for t and k too, before a vowe but not at the end of a word [pʰɑp] or after an s [pʰɔr] vs [spɔr]. Some dialects seem to emphasize aspiration (even at the end of a word) t...

Re: ქართული ენა

The american one has a unique tone, so I'm still partial to the way it sounds.

Though I gotta say, I like the message in the Georgian one. The american one is all about defeating britain, and the georgian one looks to the future. It's got a better message, and a more relevant one.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Right now, I'm playing around with an absurdly large phonemic inventory. I've got: Nasals Plosives (voiceless, voiced, ejective, aspirated voiced, aspirated voiceless) Fricatives (voiceles, voiced, might throw in aspirates) Affricates (Voiceless and voiced, might throw in both aspirates and ejective...

Phonological Questions: Ask and Answer

We should have a special thread for people to ask and answer phonological questions. As well as phonemic ones. But I see the two as going hand in hand. But anyway... Can anyone make a video showing the sound differences between voiceless and voiced nasals? (m,n,etc...) Am I the only one who usually ...

Re: Is anyone else frustrated with the status of conlanging?

I also more people admitted to themselves that often when they conlang, they are copying a language they are infatuated with but cannot be bothered to learn. 'If I can't learn it, I'll just make my own'-mentality. It makes for generally lazy, uninteresting conlangs that fall flat and that contain n...

Re: Katamna

Starting work on coming up with a Katamna writing system. On the basis that most scripts tend to start out with pictograms/logograms, and then develop phonetic/phonemic writing from there, I've been making some logograms (this is also a nice opportunity to make some vocabulary!) Here's the set I've...
