Re: Yay or Nay?

Before posting a dedicated thread for Urxan, I'm working on all the little tweaks and details, and there are still some little details about which I'm unsure. (Urxan society is matriarcal and women have power over men. I'm experimenting with how culture and society may influence language. If it's to...

The Urkhan Empire

The Urkha (or Urxa ) are the founders of a massive empire that expanded on the Eastern continent. Related to the Soo ta Aangii , they are nevertheless vastly different, whether linguistically, religiously, but also in terms of culture and politics. You will find in this thread information about thei...

The Urkhaan subfamily Old Urkhaan Old Urkhaan was spoken in the Urkhaan country where it developed at the same time as Old Aangiian.

The Urkhaa-Aangiian language family scratchpad

So after doing a bit of diachronics and phonological changes and realising how fun it actually is, I decided to go a step further and actually put together this language family, an idea I've had for a while but never got around to getting to it seriously. The Urkhaa-Aangiian language family is divid...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Oh, I see. I was actually thinking about it myself. When I was practising to pronounce them, I was wondering whether to keep the stress pattern on the first syllable and merge those VV sequences, or have a new stress pattern that would allow them to maintain themselves. But you're right, merging the...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Yay, yay! People doing diachronics always make me happy, and you seem to be off to a better start than many. I'd add a couple more changes to what you have, namely merging the laryngealization and the nasalization, and simplifying all those VV sequences with central vowels u ended up with. You don'...
