Re: underused settings in world building

Too many. And since high school is supposed to be the Japanese equivalent to college (and the partying and drinking) in terms of “what was the highlight of my youth”, it’s different that Western doesn’t really have a large number of college settings.

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

I decided I'd have three or more multipurpose postpositions that work together with my case system. I have one defined as such: bar ("someone receives"): +INSTR = for (benefactive), by (means) +ACC = at (locative) +GEN = by (oblique agent) +ABL = out of (exessive) +ALL = into/through (inessive) I wa...

Re: Īsmay - verbal system continued

LEXICAL VOICES The voices mentioned below have a strong lexical component, to the point of often being covered as separate lexicon entries. Because of that, they are often combined with other - syntactical - voice markers. Causative Voice The causative raises the valency of the verb by one, and pla...

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

Anyway, I think I see where you're coming from now. I suppose the choice depends on your underlying principle. There's the one you described. Another one based on the active and passive is that the noun describes the nominative argument of the implied clause, leading to the causative interpretation...

I don't know what the applicative nouns would mean, whether they have causative meaning or an instrumental one. https://media1.tenor.com/images/e17525775ef2f4138dc3bb4b5750179a/tenor.gif The two possible meanings are clearly related, and I'm sure context would clarify which was intended.

My conlang has three voices, one of which is the applicative, which is used like this: a) John-NOM man-ACC write-APL "John made the man write [something]" b) John-NOM pen-ACC write-APL "John wrote [something] with a pen" I have a series of verb-to-noun morphemes, that are basically make the resultan...

Yes, I did indeed provide a link to the phonology on the original question post. The syllable structure/phonotactics would also be there.

Maybe it could have ejective fricatives as roducts of some morpho-phonological processes, but not on the lexical level.
Such as?

Re: Yay or Nay?

Yay or nay,

Vrkhazhian should have ejective fricatives (that, like all fricatives, tend to affricate word-initially)?

The inventory would look like this:

But aside from that, Ethiopian Semitic is replete with examples of languages boasting 30+ consonants and robust triconsonantal morphology. You're right, I've even found Semitic languages with 33+ consonants: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inor_language#Consonants https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaha_...

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

I remember someone (can't find who said it) saying a triconsonantal root system (or maybe it was an abjad) cannot have too many consonant phonemes. Is this really the case?
