Re: How would you go about creating a Germanic conlang that is Spanish like?

I once realized that Germanic and Romance languages have very similar variation in *kt English and French elide *k nuit, night Swedish and Italian merge *k with *t notte, natt German and Sardinian lenite *k to x [noxt] (or something), Nacht But where is Germanic Spanish that makes them an affricate?

Plosives can be geminated.
I'm still unsure how /f, s/ behave.

Re: Random ideas: Morphosyntax

You've probably heard of pluractionality, so how about duactionality, a verbal number used if an event occurs exactly twice? Could the same form also mean 'redo'? Pluractionality also often means that several persons do the same thing separately. Probably that could also be the case with duactional...

Re: Ulion

Mitēlr caj ćēl.
'I love you.'

mitēl 'darling, beloved'
-r 'Essive'

caj 'you'

ćē 'consider (positive), like'
-l 'sg1'

The clause thus literally means: 'I consider you [my] darling.'

There could also be some kind of a glottalized/creaky voice vowel quality.

CV syllables
V can appear word-initially but /ɾ/ cannot.

Makes 130 syllables.

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

I was thinking about Hakuan alignment, and was wondering if any natlang does anything similar. Basically, if a 'patient' of a verb isn't directly affected/changed by the agent, it is placed in the oblique case. So for example: to eat food (food would be in the unmarked 'case' as eating causes a dir...
