Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

>Syrġastas >Maiganētas I like these, they have a Greco-Roman feel. You could try translating these commissive statements: https://conworkshop.com/translation.php?s=d186d62cd197c3a3207950e69cd054a0 Thank you!

Re: Iramite of the Pillars - Progeny of a Lost Semitic

I would also like to say that if you wish for me to translate something specific into Iramite, I would be happy to make the attempt. You can PM me or post it here if you wish. Just as well, if you have questions about the setting [if you're confused about it or want to know how it will affect the la...

Re: Biblical Hebrew

Why not just use a romanization or the script and just let people choose how they pronounce it? That's how my class worked. Hell, the rabbi didn't even attempt a historical pronunciation himself (he was north american), he was fond of some of ours though. Ultimately conlangers and linguists are gonn...

Re: Altlang Ideas Discussion

I was thinking of an Indo-European altlang that developed into a triconsonantal root lang. Maybe if it moved into the right direction? It looks to likely to not make a conlang of it. So much ablaut. Ask Isfendil. That sounds like it could easily exist in North Africa. Did s/he already work on somet...

Re: Will Indo-Aryan no longer be an accepted term in Linguistics?

Surely, replacing 'Indo-Iranian' with 'Aryan' or replacing 'Indo-Aryan' with 'Indic' would make the nomenclature more consistent. What political situation? The issue is that Aryan is the indo-aryan reflex of that word, whereas iranian is more or less the iranian one, so calling indo-iranian "Aryan"...

Re: Non-pulmonic consonants

The reason why few conlangs have them is because most of those conlangs are germanic languages and romance languages, and most native languages of conlangers lack ejectives, so all of these factors contribute to that typological rarity.
