Weird Phrases from your Conlangs

Post by Sankon » 24 Aug 2010 02:51

Khalbõ allows some pretty monstrous consonant clusters:

ñaakstrlno zutntt
/ ɲaːkstrlno zutntː/

"I am agreeing with you for her"

äkrämtps zutnl
/ækræmtps zutnl/

"I farm it"

Thanks for reminding me about that month I spent looking at Georgian consonant overlap. (j/k)

My conlang: PUSH see-1SG.2SG
English: "the proposition that I saw you and/or I see you and/or I will see you is hereby pushed onto the stack"

Is this language based around computer architecture?

Ooh, that would be neat! Instead of having obviative pronouns, you could have a stack on which you could push phrases. And then to refer to different previously pushed phrases you could use swap, peek and pop function words.

škṣīni /ʃkʂiːni/ "your children"
kmŋhāmŋhā /kmŋ̊æːmŋ̊æː/ "their sheep"

No. The language is an unambiguous context-free loglang (and almost deterministically context-free) which may be considered "computerish", but the language, if we exclude the "extras", follows the general rules for natural languages. My conlang has a stack, but while Fith has a stack-based syntax, the stack of my conlang is semantic, the syntax being purely head-initial and not stack-based. A speaker could ignore the stack and speak the rest of the language as a normal language, which isn't possible with Fith (though Shallow Fith emulates it).

What would this be allophonically though?

Use firefox and fonts "Code2000" "Code2001" and "Code2002". It will solve the problem, and you will be able to see almost all scripts, even phoenician.
