Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

So I went a bit over the top when preparing this challenge, creating about 40 descendent languages, that I all like and care for. Since I thought that might be too much to cope with, I figured I could just split it up into three rounds. In the first round, you will see 12 cognates, in the second ro...

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

How (or should) should I add declension and/or conjugation classes for my agglutinative conlang? Do agglutinative languages tend to have multiple conjugation/declension classes?

Re: Collaborative Conlang Evolution

I was envisioning a simple(to start, since it is a protolang) system of progressive vowel harmony where /i u e o/<>/ɛ ɔ a ɔ/. Diphthongs are neutral and if there are no pure vowels, then a random grade is given to the root. pan+i>/panɛ/ pan+u/panɔ/ pun+ɔ/puno/ OR /punu/(you'd have to memorize based ...

Re: Collaborative Conlang Evolution

Well, that's enough for a start, so how about our first issue: What starting inventory should we use? Here is Idov's idea Here's mine: /m n ŋ2 ŋ w 2/ /p p h b t t h d k k h g k w k wh g w / /ɸ s ɬ x x w h1/ /l r j w/ /i u/ /e o/ /ɛ ɔ/ /a/ /aj aw ej ew oj ow/ Hight harmony between /i u e o/ and /ɛ ɔ ...

Re: Attempts of a new collablang

Where are we at on this? Could we tally the votes and move on? 1) size of consonant inventories? b. moderately small(15-18 consonants) 2) size of vowel inventories? b. average(5 or 6 vowels) 3) Voicing in Plosives and Fricatives b. In plosives alone 4) Should we have uvulars? a. None 5) Should we ha...

Collaborative Conlang Evolution

So there have been a whole lot of collablangs based off of an evolution from a natural language, but how about one starting with a con-protolang? Would anyone be interested in that? If enough people are interested I'll get it going. (Or if you want, we could also set up the proto lang collaborativel...

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

IDK if this goes here but is there a difference between a diphthong /aṷ/ and a vowel + semivowel in the coda /aw/?

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

What's the boundary between polysynthetic and highly agglutinative? Like, when does a language start being polysynthetic? Agglutination is a characteristic of languages that stack affixes with relatively clear-cut functions. In a prototypical agglutinative language, each affix codes for one grammat...

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

Thanks for all the info! I have another(unrelated) question: There are traits that are correlated with various word orders (SOV langs are usually head final, with postpositions, and are exclusively suffixing.) What traits are common with the other orders like SVO and VSO? http://aveneca.com/cbb/vie...

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

Cool, thanks! I want to make a system that only uses the syllabary but I want to have an explanation for where the symbols came from, and "they just decided to have a syllabary because why not." isn't as satisfying as "they had a logography, then started to use it as a syllabary instead."

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

If I'm making a syllabary that derives from an old semanto-phonetic script, should I make each symbol derive from a pre existing logogram? Every syllable probably doesn't exist as a monosyllabic word.

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

Could anyone link me to a resource on Proto Norse and/or Proto Germanic language? I need phonology, grammar and lexicon if they're available.
