Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Makes me also consider, ponder and otherwise commence ruminations about what would have had to have been the circumstances for an Niswi-mishkodewin ↔︎ Tihuantinsuyu Trade Network by which the Ojibwe could have acquired potatoes ( Solanum tuberosum ) from South America ?? This would be without any p...

What are some reflexes of prenasalised stops, other then stop+nasal vowel? Could a Geminate Nasal work?

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

Is it possible or attested for a language to have word-final lenition of stops? Danish iirc. Also any language that loses final stops can be argued to be leniting them in a way. And what about the possibility that this allophonic rule could be ignored, such when a noun that normally ends in a gende...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Had my Ojibwe class, now I can ask and answer "how many..?" questions.

Aan tahkisin ashkipwaawan? (How many potatoes?)
Peshiko ashkipwaaw... (There is one potato/the potato is alone)

Can someone gloss this?

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

If this language allows robust codas, i would suggest deriving new diphthongs from the coda consonants, and then shifting these into new monophthongs. alternatively, delete weak medial consonants instead and reduce the number of syllables in such words by one. i know I was planning to have Baeba ge...

Re: Another triconsonantal project

My conlang Vrkhazhian also has a chaotizer morpheme though it's lexicalized instead of being a verb form. Vrkhazhian is like the type specimen of triconsonantal conlangs. I really should look into it more. It's one of the one's I always tell conlangers interested in the concept to check out, alongs...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I thought it would be possible to get a B.Sc in Anthropology at my uni, but it looks like I'd need Advanced Functions 12U to switch to that program.
I don't know if a B.A would still let me do fieldwork science or if it's more for like teaching and shit.
