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

What is the difference between these two types of "or"? 1. Do you want a burger or a hot dog? (Rising intonation up to "burger," then falling intonation starting with "or." Implies a one-or-the-other choice between two options.) 2. Do you want a burger or a hot dog? (Rising intonation throughout. Ca...

Re: Question about tense conjugations

Skimming over it, it looks pretty good, except "jumped" and "thought" are the past tense versions of "jump" and "think," not present. If you were implying the presence of the word "have" (e.g. "have jumped") then ignore what I said, because "have jumped" is indeed present.

Re: Yay or Nay?

Orthography with more diacritics, or less diacritics? With more diacritics: Šapa ma hčēdit šaje, ču hapa pye-gûn uje. With less diacritics: Xapa ma hchédit/hcheedit xaje, chu hapa pye-guon uje. IPA: /ʃapa ma ɦʧe:dit ʃaʤɛ ʧu hapa pjɛ gu:ɔn uʤɛ/ I'm personally a fan of less diacritics in general, bec...

Pronouns Na made some pronouns. Ev are pretty self-explanatory. What do nei think? SG PL 1 na vuo/pa 2 i nei 3 ol ev Vuo is inclusive, and pa is exclusive. Pronouns decline like normal nouns, but without the plural suffix -u (it's unnecessary). I'm also working on translating country names. They're...

Re: Otvei (Scratchpad)

I made a ConWorkShop page for Otvei. Hopefully I can figure it out. ( http://conworkshop.info/view_language.php?l=OTI ) Cases I also made a noun declension with cases. I decided on including nominative, accusative, dative, genitive, and prepositional cases. All cases are marked with suffixes, but no...
