Re: Crona (redux)

Not sure what I could help you with tbh. My conlang has almost the same number/type of front and back clusters as yours, but it is not complex, linguistically. In fact, the clusters and diphthongs actually make the language easier for me. The guideline that I use is basically just "Can I pronounce i...

Re: Crona (redux)

+1 like to the onset clusters, word coda, diphthongs and triphthongs.

Most of these are also used in my conlang [:D]

Re: Writing a Fictional Anthropology: How Do You Do It?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

It isn't winter anymore, but it could feel like it. The travel guide on my conlang website invites you to visit snow regions.

In other news, someone followed my website, and also featured my conlang on his main page. That person uses the Universal Metaconstant conlang. Check it out.

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

Related question: Why do most conlangers assume that fronting is associated with emphasis though? For example, in my conlang, the word that was affected by fronting and/or backing is just as likely to be important. Also, fronting generally does not correlate with emphasis here.
