Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

So, as Dhamashi develops, I have been thinking about other cultures that might coexist on this world and one came to me. The language is called Dhakhsh [ðæxʃ] and the people who speak it call themselves Lœsheq [ˈlø.ʃəq]. They live on the continent Shardhelikh [ˈʃær.ðə.ˌlɯx] which is the continent Ka...

Re: Conlang Conversation Thread

However, the character for "word" (it's the one after the first mid-dot) is the ugliest one I've yet made. Blech. Any ideas to improve it? Or maybe others don't think it's that hideous...? https://i.imgur.com/ezYjXc3l.png harla linshura shuranalo ikhi shina shura. hamedin liranimina shina. harl-a l...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I just created a preliminary phonology of my next language, tentatively called Dhakhsh [ ðæxʃ ]:

Consonants:

/ p b t d k g q ɢ ʔ /
/ m n ɲ ŋ /
/ r ʀ /
/ f v θ ð s z ʃ ʒ x h /
/ j /
/ l /
/ t͡ʃ d͡ʒ /

Vowels:
/ i ɯ u /
/ o /
/ ə /
/ œ /
/ æ ɒ /

Quite the work in progress, but it's a start.

Re: The Language of Lortho and the World of Dhamashi

Any linguistic variation or is this just a lingua franca of sorts? Right now it is the only language that I have for this world at the moment and that is because this specific part of the world is coming to me from Lortho as it develops. I want to create other languages as well, but for now it is t...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

@ bbourq - I agree about your Frathwiki - nice work. Just a couple of observations: In your verb conjugations, best to write out all the forms, rather than hyphen endings. Your conjugational rules seem pretty clear, still, it's good to show all fully conjugated forms in a paradigm. Same goes for no...
