Encliticized is definitely the more accurate term here. Updating the original post.

Re: Skaalinska

Definite Articles Definite articles are encliticized after the noun they refer to. The left is for masculine/feminine nouns while the right is for neuter nouns. All articles other than -na cause a single syllable noun to take pitch 1. Nominative Singular: -en/-et Oblique Singular: -en/-et Genitive ...

Irregular Nouns 14 nouns don't fit into the previous declension patterns. With the exception of madur, all of these exceptions occur in nominative/oblique plural form Umlaut Two masculine nouns undergo an umlaut and pitch change with no suffix in the nominative/oblique plural: 1. Fader (father) -> ...

Re: Skaalinska

Neuter Nouns The strong and weak neuter nouns have identical declensions with the exception of the genitive plural. All neuter nouns ending in -a take the weak declension pattern. Only 2 native nouns, lunga (lung) and hærta (heart) take this pattern (and only lunga is regular); all other nouns with...

Re: Skaalinska

Weak Feminine Nouns All feminine nouns ending in -a take this pattern. The use of the spelling <or> in the plural for /ʊr/ is a borrowing from Swedish and solely used to distinguish this ending from the ending <ur> which is pronounced /ər/. <o> does not represent /ʊ/ anywhere else in Skaalinska. No...

Re: Skaalinska

Strong Feminine & Weak Masculine Nouns Rather confusingly, these two categories share the same declension pattern. For masculine nouns its used for nouns ending in a vowel or /r/, those from Old Norse ending in /l n s/ which did not have the nominative ending -ʀ, as well as the noun Gud (God). For ...

Re: Skaalinska

Having looked at East Norse, I've decided I'm going to have to keep it as a West Norse language as one of the main reasons old grammatical features of Old Norse have been maintained in Skaalinska is due to the U-umlaut which from my understanding East Norse dropped early on. With this in mind, I'm g...

Re: Skaalinska

I love north germanic languages as some here know so I find this very cool. As for location, if you want to be conservative but don't want to copy Icelandic, you could place this language perhaps in Finland or further east? It would be peripheral and conservative but not "western." There are a few ...

Re: Skaalinska

I like it! Especially that kind of "inverse umlaut" you have going on. I'm curious to see the full table of outcomes for that change. Here's what all of these changes look like: /ja(ː)/ -> /jɛ(ː)/ -> /ɛ(ː)/ /jɔ/ -> /iœ̯/ -> /œ(ː) -> /ɜ(ː)/ /juː/ -> /iʏ̯/ -> /ʏ yː/ -> /ɪ iː/ /joː/ ->/juː/ -> /iʏ̯/ -...

So this language is one I've been working on for a few months. It's a member of the North Germanic family spoken in an as of yet undecided location. Grammatically, while it approaches the continental languages, it is still more conservative than them in many situations. It maintains a 3 case system:...

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Realizing there's something a bit sad about seeing words from Polish, Hungarian, etc. like Łódź or Szőcs and not looking at them with the same awe and confusion at their pronunciation and spelling like most other non-speakers seem to do.

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Recently I'm planning to make a Sinosphere Austronesian (presumably non-Malayo-Polynesian) conlang. Is it possible for such a language to be spoken in Ryukyu islands?

Re: Neugrotien - Para-Slavic lang

The thing that strikes me as most unusual about /ʒɛnisn/ is that coda /s/. Under French sound changes, it would drop and lengthen the preceding vowel. If there were any palatalization, it would have already ejected a yod, which would undergo more changes with the vowel. Given that it comes from *že...
