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

I was reading the wikipedia page on Romance languages, and it talks about how consonants got palatalized before /j/ which came "from i, e in hiatus." By "i, e" do they mean /ɪ ɛ/ or /ɪ iː ɛ eː/?

Re: An Unnamed Conlang

I like what you have here so far! Looking forward to more whenever you have it. [:)] Thanks! I like the use of <ć ć' ś> for /t͡ɬ t͡ɬ' ɬ/. I borrowed it from Proto-Semitic's use of ⟨ś⟩ for */ɬ/ So, for example, initial <a> is always /ʔa/? Correct. Interesting how /ə(ː)/ can be either "high" or "low"...

So far, so good!
Thanks! I plan on going more into depth on nouns and verbs, then talking about adjectives.

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

I'm thinking of making a romance language spoken in northern Germany and the Netherlands. Does anyone have any good resources on roman history and Vulgar Latin?

Re: British Romance Language Collablang

57: B 58: D, /iə uə/ → /ɪ ʊ/ 59: B 60: B 61: B Since we have phonemic /ɪ/, we might as well get /ʊ/ aswell. Also, if we go with my suggestion as well as add phonemic length, the outcome will depend on whether 57 or 58 go first. If 57 goes first, you get: /iə uə/ → /ɪ ʊ/ /iəː uəː/ → /jə wə/, /ja wa/,...

Re: An Unnamed Conlang

Quick bit on questions. Polar Questions: Polar questions are formed by adding the particle ⟨t'é⟩ to the end of the question. The part in the sentence that is being questioned can be emphasized to show it is being questioned. EX: Did you see him? keyël č'aqtonno t'é? [ˈke.jəl ˈt͡ʃ'aq.tɵn.nɵ ˈt'eː] ke...

53: A
54: C, /u/ → /ʊ/
55: C
56: A

Also, if we go with /u/ → /ʊ/, /i/ → /ɪ/ would make sense.

Re: An Unnamed Conlang

I'm back! So I guess I should start with verbs now. Transitivity: Verbs can be either inherintly transitive or intransitive. Transitive verbs can be made intransitive in two ways. 1 is by adding an intransitive suffix, and 2 is by using a passive construction. EX: I killed him. keyël tuštunmë. [ˈke....

K'otê (formerly "An Unnamed Conlang")

So I've been working on a conlang that is now called K'otê ([k'ɵ.ˈtəː]), which is just the word for "Language". I plan on making a world for it and deriving desendants from it, but that's a ways off. Here's what I have so far. Phonology and Orthography: /m n/ ⟨m n⟩ /p t t͡s t͡ʃ t͡ɬ k q ʔ/ ⟨p t c č ć...

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

Another question: Is there such a thing as a dualative (dualitive?) derivation? Like a collective, but instead of turning "a tree" into "a group of trees," it would turn it into "a pair of trees." Just to give another answer. In Mee (Trans-New Guinea; Papua, Indonesia), you can suffix a reduced for...

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

Derivational class is probably the best name for it, and since I do happen to have grammatical gender, I'll base it off of that. Also, would it be weird for some nouns to be irregular and take some or all of their derivational affixes from a different class? How about some derivations applying to al...

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

Hello! This is my first question here. I have an idea for noun declensions that don't change the inflexional affixes of nouns (so a noun in declension 1 would take identical case markings and number markings as a noun in declension 2), but instead would affect what derivational markings a noun got (...
