Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Wasn't any confusing at all, and a detailed description cannot be too much long! Did some of the changes actually happen in OTL Chamic / Champan language though? None of these changes are found in proto-Chamic which is part of what makes this whole thing so incredible with the Southeast Asian Sprac...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

I might've entered quite too late to this board, but I have to ask a question: how did an Austronesian language like Ởnh·Vú (and Cham, for the matter) develop its tones? I still have plenty to post to this board actually [:)]. The Sinosphere is filled with languages from many different families tha...

The latter is from words relating to farming, ultimately meaning roughly "residence" - related to English "neighbour" (one who farms nearby) and "Boer" (farmer of Dutch origin), and German 'bauen', 'to build'.
This is also the origin of -band in husband.

Good news! The Kazakh government is going through more orthography reforms. The current proposed orthography right now looks like the one below. It's very possible some things will change before ratification though. It's a lot closer to Turkish now. /m n ŋ/ <m n n ŋ> /p b t d k ɡ q/ <p b t d k g q> ...

I'm curious as to why we have /ueθ/ for /wɪθ/ but /vʌn/ for /wʌn/. Is /v/ not allowed before front vowels?

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

Then again, if we exclude recent(-ish) loanwords, Hungarian doesn't really have word-initial clusters at all, AFAIU. This does in fact seem to be the case too. It's particularly noticeable in the word Görög (Greek). The number of common loanwords with CC initials is however still much higher than t...

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

It also says it has very few word-internal three-consonant clusters, but they are “very special”, and they all span syllable-boundaries. The only exceptions that fit under this that I can think of right now are the name István (which is a borrowing anyhow) and some verbal and nominal endings. What'...
