What would the historical cause for inverse voicing be?
I see final devoicing is very common, but what causes the final voicing?
Probably the same ones as Dholuo.
WTF moments! It really happens somewhere! Wow!
That was interesting to know. Does anybody know a historical explanation for such a phenomenon?

Not for this language, but there was some other language where intervocalic voicing for some reason almost only affected the consonant between the penultimate and the ultimate syllable, if the last syllable was open. This was followed by deletion of the final vowel and there you go. It looks like final voicing. This was probably somewhere on (northern) Eurasia, but I forgot which language it was.

I saw a thread asking about a conscript that was designed for digital media such as stock tickers etc .... I cant find the thread now but this is my entry:

https://dl.dropbox.com/s/me2y60d53m84by ... ript10.png

Each row is a diff version of the same alphabet, which has only 30 syllables.
Sorry guys, this one has the worst sting.

Today I was able to embed Instagram videos on my new LCS-sponsored website. It's still a work in progress, but it's coming along.

I like it
thanks. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/auawgeyar51tlv ... L-bw-3.png <----- another one.... a HYPER-minimalist script of 100 letters thats about as small as it can be. There are actually 400 letters, depending on whether the bottoms are drawn in or not. These are for tones.thus can be considered as diacritics.

I know the img is ridiculously small... I will post something better when I have the labels on. For now, in Photoshop, it's easier to just work pixel by pixel.

This is the same language as the other scripts... I think that this script would be difficult to rread, since almmost every detail matters and it's a syllabary so context won't help either... But this is just the minimalist "bare bones" form of the script, whereas in proper use some lines would be curved, lengthened, etc. Also, the number of syllables quickly dropped below 100.
Sorry guys, this one has the worst sting.

Much appreciated! I hope to eventually write a codex in a way that it looks like it was discovered in an archaeological dig.

I've done a lot of work with Oddúhath Claire's basic syntax (noun phrases, possession order, dependent clauses, etc). Also I translated a sentence to test it's syntax.But it's mostly an excuse to have fun with the lexicon

  • :con: Bàsupan, loosely inspired by Amharic.
  • :con: Oddúhath Claire, a fusion of Welsh and Arabic.

Actually yesterday and Sunday, but I wasn't on much on either day. Had my 30th birthday and got moved into a new apartment. Hubby and I should be here while we work on getting a house in the coming year or two.

Happy 30th! My mom is turning 40 in a few days and she's anxious and excited all at once. And congrats on the new apartment! Milestones!
I like my languages how I like my women: grammatically complex with various moods and tenses, a thin line between nouns and verbs, and dozens upon dozens of possible conjugations for every single verb.

Happy 40th to your mother. I hope it's more excitement than nervousness.

For some conlanging related accomplishments, after researching Proto-Japonic and Old Japanese vowel system reconstructions, I think I need to redo what I have of "Nyango" (again) but at least I should be able to make it more separate from Standard Japanese. I also have a better idea of what I want to do with it so, baby steps! Or maybe kitten steps, but still.

Separated out ~750 words with good etymologies in Bābākiam, the ancestor of Pabappa and Poswa. I should be able to find about a thousand more and then discard the rest, some of which have been sitting around for 23 years with no real chance of a proper etymology.

I was off by about a hundred .... The total number of words in the dictionary now is 1655. This excludes numbers, placenames, and other open classes.

With this dictionary in its current form, all Pabappa and Poswa words have solid etymologies going back over 7000 years.
