Re: naming languages: is it that freaking hard?

And this is a naming language; if you don't like a word form, don't use it. Only pick words that meet your standards.

Re: naming languages: is it that freaking hard?

Could you elaborate on what problems you're encountering? The fact that one word doesn't fit your aesthetic doesn't tell us much.

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

How does one make one of those code things with the green monospace font? The way to do it is type something up in Notepad using a monospace font (like Courier New). Then copy the text from Notepad into the "code" brackets (press the button to the right of the "quote" button in the text editor). Th...

The nouns are gradually working themselves out in my head. And I thought of an interesting set that demonstrate the overlapping genders.

What do you mean by this?
It's a mockingly defensive way of saying a general description fits you specifically, with such accuracy that you feel violated. YMMV; it took me awhile to come up with that definition.

Re: False cognates

:eng: lace, lasso

While all three words can ultimately be traced to Latin, "lace" and "lasso" both come from :lat: laqueus, and "leash" descends from the verb :lat: laxo.

Okay on the allophony issue. And, and assimilation's the only time the fortis-lenis pairs lose contrast.
Then that's a phonemic change. Whenever one phone changes to a contrasting phone, that's phonemic.

I'm reposting a question that I, initially, edited into my last post to make sure it gets answered. Should allophony be formatted (a) [allophone] of /parent phoneme/ <location> /causal phoneme/ or (b) [allophone] of [parent phone] <location> [causal phone]? The latter. The allophone's environment s...

Well, I was thinking of this line: "Obtaining alcohol for consumption is no exception, and the millennial beverage of choice is wine."

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

The article says millennials are drinking more wine than other generations, not that they drink more wine than beer. I'd also hesitate to apply this information years in the past to high schoolers. (The article says its statistics are for 2015.) I'd try to answer your central question, having been a...
