I've dabbled a bit with a diachronic, West Germanic (Ingvaeonic) conlang, with a bunch of diphthongs and wacky sound changes (taking Grimm's Law one step further, basically): /m n ŋ/ /p t tʃ k/ /f s ʃ ɕ x ç h/ /z ɣ/ /w l r j/ /a ɛ ɪ ɔ ʊ aː eː iː oː uː/ /au̯ wa wɔ jɛ wa: wo: je:/ Sa frestar skrie pri...

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

Can anyone please explain what is going on in this sentence:

"I bring news of what would have been going to happen if you were not to have been going to change your ways."

It reads like a terrible meme, but I'm still curious.

A newbie question, but still: if my language is generally VSO, and has postpositions, would it be classed as a head-initial language?
