Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

I'll be honest, I'm quite lost, but I'll keep taking a crack at it.

Does weycht's origin have a consonant that was later vocalized?

Ultimately, yes. But it is directly descended from a noun form.
Is there a Gothic cognate to weycht?

I always feel like I don't have a good language for Lexember, since I'm largely an a posteriori conlanger, or a diachroniclanger, but since I do need to get started on that massive world project, I figure I best start making some proto-words.

Re: Californian Polynesian

well tmk, they aren't particularly phonologically complex. Like Cochimi has a smallish inventory compared to the other languages of North America. Only 20 consonants and 3 (or maybe 5) vowels

Is my new avatar too fast? [:S] Not particularly sure I like the animation either, but I cooked it up over the last couple of hours, since I thought that maybe my avatar needed an update. Idk how to really cut up the circle more into like 16ths or 32nds for a slower animation

there's not really a thing that is "efficient language" because language is limited by the fact that it needs to be both spoken and heard. The average sentence in a spoken language will have the same amount of meaning as the average sentence in another. Since human processing capabilities do not dif...

Iberian Romance and Sardinian both have intervocalic lenition, but I don't think that's ever considered a form of mutation the way it is in modern Insular Celtic languages
