Re: The CBB Conlang Census

... but I think syllabic alphabet would be a more descriptive term. AKA Abugida (According to Omniglot) I don't know what's Omniglot's criteria, but Dezinaa is clearly making a distinction here between an Abugida, that is, primary consonant glyphs with secondary vowel diacritics, versus what he cal...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I fleshed out a conlang in the year 3017 derived from American English. Here is a sample sentence. Jups kwak bren fes ava lozh deg. [dʒups kwak bren fes ava loʒ deg] jump-PRES quick brown fox-SING over lazy dog-SING I'd say you could've been more radical, both phonetics-wise and grammar wise. Espec...

Re: Yay or Nay?

I've recently gotten into Chữ Nôm and I think it might be one of my favorite writing systems aesthetically. I was wondering what you guys thought about the idea of me making a language, probably Austroasiatic, Malayo-Polynesian, or Tai-Kadai, written in Chữ Nôm? Does it seem kinda pointless? If it ...

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

I have some weird rules in my conlang. I want to know if the rules are acceptable. In other words, can a human speaker use theses rules spontaneously and non-prescriptively? Are the rules is stable for a long time? There is a word that means "this/that". It is usually followed by a noun, but the no...

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

If for example, the Anatolian branch split from PIE earlier than other branches, does this mean that the PIE which gave rise to Proto-Germanic (or maybe even 'Proto-European dialect') would have been quite different from the PIE which gave rise to Anatolian? Yes, indeed. For example, the Anatolian ...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

All the changes i read, which is most of them, were perfectly realistic. The ejective s' is a relatively hard thing to reconstruct, since it's quite an unusual phoneme, but that's just flavor in my opinion. This challenge was particularly rewarding in the sense that reconstructing was fun, and we al...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Wave 7 is fortition, though not your garden variety fortition. Something like uvularization + fortition.

22 and 23 are also fortition, of a tamer sort. 22 is actually quite common a change both ways.

I will have a go at gufferdk's shortly, but i just wanted to say that above beforehand.
