Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

This one is less bizarrely away from the answer, but you've also got some changes backward. And the fact that most of the forms who have the nasal are dental and vice-versa is coincidental. I gather qweds method would be quite suited to find the protoform, even though wouldn't help treeing the fami...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Loglorn, From your response to Adarain about the medial nasal not being a focus for dividing the attested forms, it had me notice a pattern that follows quite nicely in my opinion, though I'm not sure if this was the original intention either. Regardless, it's something I picked up on: Upon further ...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I grouped together A: kɛɖiɕ kʰentʰeɕ kʰendeɕ kʰəʈeɕ kjuʈjaɕ which had me yield * kʰønʈeɕ as a protoform, since the <ju> in the last attested form listed there had me doing double takes. It also seems easier for a verb like *ø to yield either or [e] at some point, as well as having that [k] look like...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I don't know if you saw the most recent post already, Loglorn, but I picked you to be the next person to provide a map and protoform. If you've changed your mind, someone else should go.

Sorry, y'all! Got a bit caught up with work on my end:

LOGLORN, show us what you're made of!

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I'm just going to select the names by random, and from there whoever guesses correctly goes next, like in the other thread. If there aren't many here by 6 pm (EST), like if there's just the three of us, I'll figure something else out.

Ok, this will be a second thread for anyone else interested in doing reconstructions since there's a bit of a wait in the other thread with qwed, loglorn, and myself amongst others.

Re: Writing hieroglyphics for Valyrian?

It may have been stated earlier in this thread, but speculating on Valyrian is kind of neat, it isn't a complete waste of time. It certainly has me pondering on how the system might look, and how to accommodate that train of thought to a conlang with a similar hurdle in developing a conscript that's...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

And here i come: My guess is *əkʷɨfa ~ əkufa This was the closest: the protoform is *akúpa What basically happened is that *akúpa was the original form, and the stressed moved to the front for about half of the daughterforms moved to the very last syllable for one or two forms, and stayed central i...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

To Another Conlanger, I'm kind of wondering if anybody wants to actually figure out the protoform for this. It may not be über fun or anything, but the ones who were guessing it were getting really close. If no one wants to figure it out, someone else could give a swing on this thread, I have given ...

I decided to allow plosives to end syllables, but they will be unreleased. here is a full chart: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C3MGkMUWcAE0iAs.jpg I really like your setup, and especially with labialized consonants able to be codas (ending stems or sounds of words in case you didn't know), I'm eager ...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

guis guis. The k isn't prothesis; it's the old k w . Remember the tabular diachronic system only works once homologous phones have been identified. I'll say ḗkʷuha is my guess Closer-ish, but not quite there. I'm half-afraid that this thing is a tad convoluted now. That being said, there is already...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

There's obviously intervocalic voicing going on, that plus variation between labial and velar points to 3 being /k_w/. Probably lenition from /k_w/>/g_w/>/j_w/ intervocalically for the languages with /j/. For the initial consonant, that must just be prothesis. For vowel 2: I propose a front vowel, ...
