Re: Ideas for African Chamic conlanging

Perhaps I can consider Sama-Bajaw languages instead? Recently I came across The linguistic background to SE Asian sea nomadism and found that SE Asian sea nomadism coincided with the spread Malayic in 6-7c., due to the expansion of Srivijaya, and the ethnogenesis of Malagasy is no exception to this....

Re: Ideas for African Chamic conlanging

I'm recently attempting on a Sino-Austronesian conlang (and perhaps Sino-Altaic as well), but I'm not sure which branch to choose. Considering the Ryukyu Trench, North Formosan/Kavalanic seems more plausible (instead of languages on the east coast of Taiwan); but I wonder why cultural exchange betwe...

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: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

I wonder the opposition of *-t- and *-d- in locative & ablative cases as well as the old past suffix (may be used as perfective though) -DI- would be retained to date; anyway, Chuvash did that (-t- vs -r-). In Common Turkic, -dA and -dAn have been leveled (even after n/l/r, in post-Orkhon period), s...

Re: Stress and rhythm oddities

1. Yes. In Eskyl, all words are usually initially stressed; however, loanwords of Latin/Romance origin are often stressed on penult or antepenult if ending in a vowel, and on the final syllable if ending in a consonant (i.e. the vowel has been dropped). 2. Yes. For nouns, compound are stringed toget...

Számos nyelvi tény igazolja azt, hogy az ősmagyar kor kezdetén a magyar szavak magánhangzóra végződtek.

Re: Jäzik Panúski

Slavic loanwords in Hungarian have multiple strata, including South, East and West origins (by wiktionary category); though I've not seen a word of definitely East Slavic origin (e.g. judging from liquid sequences of ToroT/TereT/ToloT). Romanian seems to contain both South and East Slavic loanwords....

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

Maybe all -yľ/-oľ endings became -yt/-ot by Hungarian influence as well as analogy? The equivalent of "monda" is tentatively formed by adding -GAn (present participle) and personal pronoun (then merged altogether) e.g. *dē-gen be 'I said/I used to say' > déjem (while this structure is often used as ...

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

When it comes to CB, I doubt whether the distinction between monda and mondott exists, and wonder what the suffix would look like. For instance, front-vowel vocalic stems: *dē-me > dé-me 'to say' *dē-je be > dé-je-p > dép (?) 'I say' *dē > dé > (through analogy?) dé-j 'he/she says' *dē-di-m > dé-ly-...
