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

I've been making a language that marks dynamic and stative verbs differently, but I've been running into certain verbs that are technically dynamic but I would rather mark stative. My question is can I make different distinctions from what are normally considered active and stative? For example, wha...

Grammaticalization

So recently I made an isolating conlang with the purpose of being the proto-lang for another conlang. The goal is to derive a fusional language that develops over the course of 1000-1500 years and has an Indo-Europeanesque phonology (I like my conlangs pretty.) The sound changes are easy enough for ...

Or this can team up with Iiłò'ełìt to make Hebreolangs a thing.....
Would he/she be interested? Wonder if I can get in contact with them. Anyway, I should probably post a phonology.

Re: Greek/Hebrew creole (attempt #2)

Well, I guess Hellenolangs are coming in now Quick, wish for something else! [:)] Hey, 1. Greek is really cool. 2. I've been attempting this for years. 3. I've been away from the conlanger community for awhile, so I would have no idea what the trends are now or even what they were a year ago. I'm p...

Re: Greek/Hebrew creole (attempt #2)

HEY GUY, I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE BUT no just kidding. It wasn't meant to be as defensive as it came off, I guess. That's pretty good. I've been interested in the Greek of the Septuagint because of its Hebraicisms, but I'd like to go much further than that. Basically, my goal is to have a...

Re: Greek/Hebrew creole (attempt #2)

I was afraid of simplification. I love the case system and conjugation of Greek. I would want to simplify a bit, but it would be hard for me to let go of them altogether. Is there any conceivable way in which I could maintain some of the complexeties of Greek while making something plausible? Anothe...

Re: Greek/Hebrew creole (attempt #2)

Hebrew uses triconsonantal roots and only the consonants are written. Old Hebrew vowels are not known with accuracy. Then, you should use Greek vowels. It will be very difficult to create a grammar for systems too different. Hebrew has triconsonantal roots and Greek has declensions and conjugations...

Re: Greek/Hebrew creole (attempt #2)

So, what would be belieavable phonologically? Grammatically? And so on and so forth. I have a small amount of work done on it, but I don't really want to move forward until I know I have something good. Since creoles are the second stage after the pidgin , I think you should first make a Greek/Hebr...

Greek/Hebrew creole (attempt #2)

Hey everybody. It's been a long time. Glad to be back. Now, I posted about this a few years ago: How do I make a somewhat believable creole out of classical Hebrew and Koine Greek? Somewhat disregarding history, of course. Believable more on the linguistics side of things, a good blend to make sure ...
