Re: Yay or Nay?

While I was messing with syntax I came up with this idea: let verbs absorb the preposition of a noun, making that noun a grammatical object (thus allowing two objects in a sentence). This would make possible two distinct passive forms (a bit alike the two passive forms of the double accusative in En...

Re: Difference between /kʷ/ and /kw/

I think now I've understood the main difference between /kʷ/ and /kw/(even if, as Ephraim said, it can be broad). Pronouncing /k/ before /ɯ/ or before /u/ (differing only in roundedness) will result in different /k/ sounds. The former would be [kɯ], the latter [k̩ʷ̩]~[kʷu] Then, adding another vowel...

romanizing the contrast between /e/ and /ɛ/ and between /o/ and /ɔ/. As an Italian, I always use è /ɛ/ and é /e/, ò /ɔ/ and ó /o/. Funny thing is, even though ó is used in Italian when clarifying the pronounciation (for example in dictionaries), it doesn't appear on keyboards and I have to copypast...

I share a lot with its vowel system, with consonants Visible Speech is clearer but more incomplete, and has to use a lot of inner, outer, close, open

Simple as that. How do I distinguish /kʷ/ and /kw/? Or how do I distinguish between /t͡s/ and /ts/, and affricates vs. clusters in general?

Re: Tarquesta Quenya case system is possible!

Languages like Latin and German, while they do still make a nominative/accusative distinction, have neutralised it for a lot of nouns. That's what I was going to say. In Latin nominative and accusative always coincide with neuter nouns, and often coincide in the plural NOM and ACC of plural feminin...
