Re: What did you accomplish today?

I think I've finally got all subordinate clauses in Daléekommos under control. I've decided there won't be a separate "aorist" preverd sáa- in addition to the relative preverb áa- (which compensates for the loss of additional change à la Cheyenne), and I've decided how the reflexes of the Proto-Algonquian conjunct moods are going to pan out (long story short they're all merged into a single paradigm based off of the subjunctive/participle except for the iterative which remains as a separate affix with an irregular morphophonemic shift of a word-final -k to -t). I'm also coming close to having a fully fleshed-out TAm system, with the addition of a reportative and a dubitative mood.

The downside to all this is that the language now ought not to be called "Daléekommos"; due to changes in how relative clauses work and the shapes of the conjunct inflection the name will have to be changed to Áalaléekowoó (the meaning, "that which we understand", is still the same), so I'll have to make an edit to some of the stuff I've posted already.

I think Áalaléekowoó is a much nicer name, so I think that's great. [:)]

Lamche wrote:Today for the first time I experienced what is commonly known as ANADEW.
Tekian, the conlang I have been working on in the last few years, is a Sino-tibetan language with strong Chinese influence. I wanted a way to tell words apart, and my idea was to change the tone of the last syllable of each word (or more specifically, each noun phrase and each verb phrase). I thought it was some unique feature no natlang had.
Well, I just realized that Min Chinese already does that, but better: tones are changed in all syllables except the last one. Luckily Tekian has some other features I can still believe to be unique.
Heads up, nothing is actually unique. While the system itself can be unique, rest assured, there's ANADEW to every single feature of it.

Congratulations Thrice, you are now one of the select few to have come up with a non-Chinese-y logography. And its pretty at that!

It still looks nice, but it's really very Chinese-y.

@loglorn: ...it's pretty "Chinese-y" though, since the language on which it is based is from the same family: Tangut.

Still, I like it.

It's a good thing I wasn't aiming to NOT look like Chinese, since I love Asian scripts in general.

It's a good thing you can fuck right off since I wasn't complaining and not to you.

Finally posted the last part to those Áalaléekowoó sound changes. Now I can actually start posting on the grammar and stuff!

Whoa...this came out of nowhere...

Anyway, what I accomplished is formally turning my alternate idea for my conlang into a related dialect, so I can work on them in parallel without having to choose one over the other (even if I have chosen to only present one here on CBB).

Dude. What the hell?

You horrendously misread my intentions with that comment and flew right the hell off the handle. Also, how in the heck am I not allowed to comment on something you said about my script?

But seriously, maybe you need to stop and think before you jump down someone's throat for literally nothing. I can't even imagine what you think I meant.

Today I reread my years-old notes on my dragon/elf language, Łoresla (/ɬoˈɾɛsla/). I'm really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things after years of real life getting in the way.

I thought of some satisfactory vowel systems for the descendants of Takshian, and tweaked a bit with consonants. I should be able to generate interesting diversity in the cousin languages of Vrkhazhian.

Takshian - Takśāikā (takɬəjkɑ:):
/a e i ɨ ə o u/
/ɑ: ɛ: ɪ: ə: ɔ: ʊ:/
/əj əw/
/m n ŋ/
/p p̰ b t t̰ d c c̰ ɟ k k̰ g q q̰ ʔ/
/t͡s/
/f v θ ð s z ç ʝ x ɣ χ h/
/l l̰ ɬ r r̰/
/j w/

East Charric - Čārīkā (tʃ͡a:ri:ka:):
/a e i o u/
/a: e: i: o: u:/

/m n ŋ/
/p pʷ b t tʷ d k kʷ g q qʷ ʔ/
/t͡s tʃ͡ tʃ͡ʷ dʒ͡/
/f v θ ð s z x ɣ χ h/
/l lʷ ɬ r rʷ/
/j w/

West Charric - Čáraiká (cɑrəjkɑ):
/a ɑ e ɛ i ɪ ɨ ə o ɔ u ʊ/
/əj əw/

/m n ŋ/
/p pʼ b t tʼ d c cʼ ɟ k kʼ g q qʼ ʔ/
/t͡s tɬ͡ tɬ͡ʼ/
/f v θ ð s z ç ʝ x ɣ χ h/
/l ɬ r rʼ/
/j w/

Central Charric - Čaraika (tʃ͡ɑrajkɑ):
/ɑ ɛ e i o u/
/aj aw/

/m n ŋ/
/p pʰ b t tʰ d k kʰ g q qʰ ʔ/
/t͡s tʃ͡ tʃ͡ʰ dʒ͡/
/f v s z ʃ͡ ʒ x ɣ χ h/
/l ɬ r rʰ/
/j w/

Northeast Charric - Cāryekā (t͡sa:rjeka:):
/a e i o/ < /a e e i ∅ o o/
/a: e: o:/ < /a: a: e: ∅ a: o:/

/m n ŋ/
/p pˤ b t tˤ d k kˤ g q qˤ ʔ/
/t͡s t͡sˤ dz͡/
/f v s z x ɣ χ h/
/l lˤ ɬ r rˤ/
/j w/

Now he's accusing me of being the nonthinker. I give up on another.

A coherent and pleasing set of diacritics. It's nice to not just use IPA.

And you're complaining when you were the one who was the jerk in the situation. But I'm sure you're going to play the victim in response to this comment as well. [¬.¬]

No, you just back to whatever you were doing before.

I have settled on a pattern of nominal coordinating conjunctions.

Now now! Credit where credit is due, friend! Mr. Roof does such a good job of playing the crankshafty curmudgeon. It's like he was born for the role or something!
