what about playing with sound changes? that a user will posting previous word with done one or two phonetic changes.

Code: Select all

Example
User 1: conlanger -> konlangè
User 2: konlangè -> kǫlǫgi
User 3: kǫlǫgi -> kuluži
first turn:
aveneca -> āvneka

Shouldn't we do this in X-SAMPA/IPA for clarity's sake?

ˈaːvnəˌka -> avˈnɛɪgaː

(Switched stress paradigim from initial to penultimate, and expanded/reduced vowels accordingly. Also lenited k->g.)

Also, how long should we go on with the changes until we start over with a new word?

həˈmaːjɔ -> ˈm̥aːjœ

Dropping the weak sounds h and ə, and making /m/ voiceless as it's now at the beginning of the word. Also brought back vowels to the front after j.

Diphthongisation of long vowels in open and/or stressed syllables with the loss of final unstressed vowels.

ˈm̥a:ʤə --> 'meaʤ

ˈmeaʤ -> meˈʝa

Shifting stress to final, and breaking up diphthongs in CVC syllables to form a CVCV di-syllabic morpheme. (We're starting to run out of room!) Also lenited ʤ to ʝ, increasing its "palatal degree" after a front vowel.

ˈð̃aɦə -> ð̞aə
