Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Is глас- related to a word attested in Biblical Gothic beginning with a consonant cluster, if it's related to a word attested in Biblical Gothic at all? It's not attested in Biblical Gothic, no. Edit: it seems that I might have made a mistake. I expect this word to be глисматс /ˈɣliːsˌmats/. Hopefu...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Self-worth-less-ness? That is the literal morpheme by morpheme meaning, yes. Although I’m hoping it’s actual translation can still be guessed. Shot in the dark: unworthiness That's the gist of it, yes. But it has a semantically narrower meaning. Looking at it again, the state of which someone has l...

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

How faithfully do mixed languages copy the grammar of the "parent" language, i.e. are the same grammar rules used or just similar grammar rules? Basically the same question I have! I also ask how faithfully they copy the phonology. I have some odd phonemes like /w_m/ and /k_w/ from one of the paren...

Re: Zeko-Romance development thread

(this is in fact a problem with a Pontic Romance language: it would have to be settled from an area which preserves word-final /s/). The loss of /s/ was an innovation, not an archaism. A significantly conservative dialect could retain /s/, even if it is geographically where one might find plurals w...

Is [e, i, o, ø, ɶ, ɔ, ɯ] or [a~æ, ɑ, e, o, ø, u, y] the more natural inventory?
I would say the latter, if only because all spaces are equally distributed by phonemes.

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

Do we know when Crimean Greek lost it's cases? Unless it had happened already in Roman times, it wouldn't be able to influence my language. If I decide to place my language in Crimea, then the story would go that for some reason Rome got angry at the Kingdom of Cimmerian Bosporus and decided to ann...

That's a shame - it's not a competition! You can always just take things a different way from Dewrad, as it seemed you were doing. You are right, but with the location in mind there is actually very little I would have done differently from Dewrad. What I started to do differently is look at databa...

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

All this talking about romlangs is making me want to go back to mine...although I don't think I'll continue in Pannonia, as I do not see how I can create a conlang there without ripping off the brilliance of Dravian . A few other locations I've looked at include a sister of Vegliot and Istriot on th...
