Re: Discourse particles

In 'Orswupo, there are 'w /ʔɯ/ or 'wn /ʔɯn/ (also sometimes 'n). They don't mean anything; they are simply used to fill in pauses while talking.

'Orswupo

'Orswupo /ʔɔɹ'sɰupɔ/ is a conlang I have been working on for about a year, with many different versions along the way. This is my first real conlang, so it's obviously not perfect. Phonology and Orthography: Nasals: /m n ŋ/ <m n ng> Plosives: /p b t d t͡s d͡z t͡ʃ d͡ʒ k g ʔ/ <p b t d ts dz tš dž k g ...

I don't know much about Leipzig glossing, so there might be some mistakes.

Re: Introduction thread(s)

Dy na'aiyo! My name is Dezinaa. I made that name a while ago, before I knew much about phonology (or conlanging). That's why it is pronounced /'dɛzɪneɪ/, not /dezina:/. I also only really have one conlang.

Re: Favorite Phoneme!

It's hard for me to decide, but I like /ŋ/, /ɯ/, and /œ/.

Re: Count to 10 in your Conlang

'Orswupo:

1- va
2- zai
3- zok
4- to
5- kin
6- tan
7- bof
10- nö
11- növa
12- nözai

This number system is octal, that's why the specific number names only go to 10 (which is equal to 8).
By the way, this is my first post on the CBB!
