Re: New language~!

I changed it just a little bit more to make it just slightly more unique... Here:

I removed the the post alveolar fricatives and affricates because they're like the most common thing ever and I just don't need them at all.

Re: New language~!

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 ...

Thanks you :)

Re: New language~!

I like how your justification for most things is simply "because I like it that way". I think those of us who have been dabbling in conlanging a little bit longer tend to worry too much about naturalism, precedents in real languages, and stuff like that. As to coining words, you might wanna look up...

Re: New language~!

I am not an expert (and hence I didn't reply until now), but I see two main ways to create a lexicon especially for a priori conlangs: a) many people order their lexicon after roots than after translations. Therewith, the first words will be completely random (well not entirely , it's still based o...

Re: New language~!

So now that I've gotten rid of all the excess questions, I will ask this again: Is there any specific way that I am supposed to develop a lexicon? or is it just random? is there some kind of strategy when it comes to creating words for a language or is it random? please help. I asked this question a...

Re: New language~!

Actually, you know what I'm thinking? Syllable structure doesn't matter very much. only which clusters are which matter, and those rules in natural languages are made over time. those who speak languages don't spend time thinking about how syllable structures work, they just make sounds to represen...

Re: Con-Script Development Centre

A longer sample would be nice when you get a chance. Also, I would challenge you to simultaneously create a handwritten/calligraphic version. That would be a real treat. Certainly. In terms of a calligraphic version, because of the theme of it, what I have would be a calligraphic version. I mention...

Re: Con-Script Recycling Bin and Idea Box

This is an abugida for scrapped tone language of mine: Feel free to use it as long as you give me full credit! I quite like the names for the letters as well as the overall idea. I'm curious about how you created your letters and marks. Also, did you make any words or grammar system for it? It was ...

Re: New language~!

So from the replies to what I was sent I guess I can change a couple of things: the vowels I guess, and maybe add some more clusters and labialised sounds? I mean I did ask a question that was unrelated to all of this but if to more veteran users my setup was just that weird I can hold off on the l...

Re: New language~!

What's going on w/ those vowels?: What the hell are you talking about? I don't understand at all they're just vowels It's really a quite unbalanced vowel system. Vowel system usually follow some common patterns, which can be mostly explained by a simple underlying rule: Vowels try to be as distinct...

Re: New language~!

Why is it that the labialised variants of consonants are possible syllable-finally?: Because I hate the sound of plosives when they end syllables. The only language I know that does it the way I would like it to happen is korean, because if you say something like, for example, 먹다, which is to eat, ...

Re: New language~!

Several questions. Why is the alveolar trill only voiceless? Why do the velar nasal and glottal fricative not have labialised equivalents? Why is it that the labialised variants of consonants are possible syllable-finally? What's going on with those vowels? Why is /sn/ the only cluster? Are you say...

New language~!

So, I haven't been on here in a while. I was making a language a while ago, but I dropped it because it was my first and was just a bit jumbled... a lot of decisions that I make were noob decisions and I decided making a new one would be best! So here I am. Because phonology and phonotactics are rat...

naturalistic Verbs... help!

So I'm creating my first language, right? and I've gotten past phonemes, Phonotactics, and a pretty good writing system. right now I'm mainly working on word order, grammar, etc, and I need info on Verbs and adpositions. If I were making an auxlang, I wouldn't need help because I could just mash som...

Re: Welcome to my conlang

Its a bit late to do this but I really don't like the sound /ʒ/ that much in my language, so although They will be present if necessary they will very rarely be used. same with /ð/.
