Re: Help with conscript

Doing some purging of two sounds, so certain symbols have become obsolete. Am going a slightly different direction...does anyone have /ʌ/ with an above and below dot? Are you able to access combining diacritics? Microsoft Word should let you, although that of course means manually clicking the abov...

Re: Help with conscript

I am thankful for all of the feedback. The last row was unnecessary for my aims, but thanks. MIGHT anyone have an /o/ with a simple dot inside it that is the size of the one shown?

Help with conscript

I have an idea for a simple conscript for my language, Eathut. Can anyone help me find what I need for it? I have only 15 base syllables and 3 singular consonant codas. I want to use /c ɔ o x ı/, corresponding to [p t k ʔ V], respectively. It is, essentially, a syllabary. But I NEED certain diacriti...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

Cool, that clears up my confusion. But if it's agglutinative, has (C)V(C) structure, and only 4 Cs, how is it possible that geminates never never occur across morpheme boundaries? Merger and/or loss. The truth is, my auditory acuity has always been a bit off. I have traces of HYPERLEXIA, and distin...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

There are no natural geminates, because there are no homorganic clusters: [pp tt kk] DON'T exist, outright. You said phonemic geminates exist: Nasality, itself, appears when any such of a syllable is like so: P-P [p-m], T-T [t-n], C-C [k-ŋ]. You said phonetic geminates exist: If it IS the glottal, ...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

There are no natural geminates, because there are no homorganic clusters: [pp tt kk] DON'T exist, outright. (And the glottal plosive is NEVER the first of a cluster.) The solid reason that I induced nasalization, at all, was because I wanted nasals somewhere...AND the thought of [pup tit kak] being ...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

Particularly, I am unclear as to where the heterorganic nasal-stop sequences [mt mk ŋp ŋt] appear. Here is what I'd suggest. Is it true that all 16 CC combinations occur intervocalically? If so, I would just use /pp pt pk pʔ tp tt tk tʔ kp kt kk kʔ ʔp ʔt ʔk ʔʔ/ as your template and list how those "...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

As for the conditions of the allophony. Here we freaking go! [p t k] are the most standard. They show up at onset, always. As much, they appear in stressed syllables. They, also, end syllables. Unstressed, medially, they are [v l ʒ]. In front of another consonant, medially, they are [f ts ʃ]. IF the...

Re: Eathut - 7 phoneme MINIMALISM.

EDIT: Proto-Lakes Plain! It's usually reconstructed with just *p *b *t *d *k *i *e *u *o *a, as far as I can tell. Nasal consonants in this particular family, however, are frequently absent, and where they do appear it's often adjacent to /a/ (which in Iau, for example, is nasalised by default, rhi...

Re: Iachor

Interesting phonology! I look forward to seeing how much you can get out of it, in terms of distinguishable roots. Does allophony produce any other phones, or do the phonemes not stray far from their underlying forms? (Also, welcome to the board!) Thank you. There is some allophony. Your suggestion...
