Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

I recently found a file called Proto-Pärdel on my computer and a daughterlang called Ferrt(e)l. I vaguely remember that there was some collaboration involved. Does anyone here remember?

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

Another glossing question: If an attribute of a word, like, for example, its tense is indicated by a phonologically distinkt word that is separated from the main word by another, how can I gloss this? There is an option I used before (not conveying at all which word's attribute I'm describing), but...

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

Could a fusional affix resulted from merging a venitive or andative and a passive be considered or even reanalyzed as an ablative or allative applicative respectively ? VEN.PASS = ABLV For the sake of keeping things clear I would stick with the first glossing, as ABLV could be thought of as a nonst...

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

I thought I would be able to find a language that doesn't mark past-tense, having past-tense as the default, but marks non-past. But I couldn't find any, or any discussion about it. Does it happen though? I think this is common actually, especially the past-tense as default part. This often happens...

German has first-person singular, because the schwa-suffix is usually elided.

Re: Idea for a new engelang

You could still use WALS for the polar opposite in morphology and syntax. This might give you a good first approximation. The grammtical feature approach could also be used. Let's say -/əd/ -<ed> marks [+past] verbs in English, /də/- <de-> in Anti-English could be used to mark non-past verbs, i.e. p...

Re: Idea for a new engelang

I once tried something similar. My idea at that time was to start with the WALS features and always take the option most opposite to English for each feature. The project name was "anti english". Hereis the phoneme inventory. I can't recall why I did not include any click consonants. Maybe the numbe...

The idea is sesquisyllabic languages is that words consist of 1.5 syllables, a main syllable and a non-main syllable.

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

Okay, so something that springs to mind is that pronouns and adpositions also have a very low lexical or semantic content in some languages.

Re: My reverse enge-lang: V:1g3n1n:1

I still would love to read about, if you have something worked out. One example of the differences I was looking for is, that your phonemes do not change their major place of articulation depending on the position.

Re: Yay or Nay?

That's a yay from me. It is realistic to me, even if it is not naturalistic in the strict sense. I think I already talked to you in the past about ad-sentential and ad-verbal adverbs and that they are syntactically (and maybe morphologically) different in some languages. I also read something on ad-...

I do not always make hallucinogenics graduate conlangs, but when I do, I put them on here. No, seriously, most of my conlangs are more naturalistic. Also, if you have a similar project that goes more into the naturalistic conlang direction, it might be cool to have a comparison. I mean, the underlyi...

What exactly do you mean by that? A uvular trill with an alveolar lateral release? A uvular trill with a velar lateral release? As for a uvular lateral release, people have argued that uvular laterals are impossible. Anyway, I don't think any of these is attested in any natlang I know of. The close...
