Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

Did the it start with a consonant? [cross] However, if that's the case, I'm having trouble thinking of what the "change that produced the /a/" and "was present in virtually every Romance language" could be if not /aː/ > /a/. Is the change in question something that only affected a subset of words, ...

Was the vowel a short a?
Can I pass a question? [:P]. Technically, the answer is no, but change that produced the a was present in virtually every Romance language

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

Nice word shimo! I dunno if I’ll have much time in the next couple of weeks since class starts tomorrow, but I might as well try. Next: àcogliuac /əkoˈʎwak/ It’s a harder one Hmmmmm... Is the first or last word from aqua? Indeed, are any of the source words first-declension nouns? [cross] [cross] [...

Is the first word a preposition at all?

Did the last word have one of the suffixes -acus or -aticus?

Did any of the words have the prefix con-? (Or an assimilated form thereof)

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs 2

Cool word! Because I'm currently doing the "Guess the word in the Romlang" game, I'll pass this to whosoëver wants it. Seeing as it’s been a few days and no one has stepped up, I guess I’ll have a go. Modern Sortsbergish höcado tatspast /høːt͡sado tatspast/ I edited this from tatspasta to tatspast,...

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

Right, the option does not work anymore. How odd. It works for me. Words that are different from the last run are bolded. For me, ALL words are bolded, except (for some reason) the first one. Previously that problem would happen sometimes when there was an error in the soundchanges - and also if th...

shimobaatar wrote: 03 Oct 2020 20:04 Is the word made up of three or more morphemes?
In the language it would be understood as a single word; but it comes from three words in Latin (some of which were inflected)

[cross] [tick] Not exactly, but "fossil" is the other translation of frastänodhed that I had in mind, based on Polish skamieniałość and Russian ископа́емое and окамене́лость.

Rigor mortis? [cross] The meaning is less abstract than a medical condition or feeling/sensation. kviunande frastänodhed refers to a category, not just one specific thing, but you can, in theory, physically interact with members of that category. It has nothing to do with medicine. To expand upon t...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

So: Is it an adjective? It can be used as multiple parts of speech, one of which has adjective-like properties. That is not the most common usage though. Hmm… maybe this has already been ruled out by your response to Jackk's initial question, but just to make sure, is it an adverb? [tick] I would t...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs 2

Just a glance at wiktionary suggests that Gothic repurposed the “completely” meaning to mean “completely used up” and then “lacking”. With that in mind, I looked at wiktionary for Russian words with a prefix that meant “lacking” (Russian bez-) The best result I got was bezglasyj “blindness” (glas at...
