Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

Right, time to discuss stress more fully. When I last mentioned stress, in a passing comment in the first post, I said this: Stress is basically word-initial. Some speakers show shift to the post-initial in cases when the initial has a schwa and the post-initial a non-schwa vowel, but this isn't uni...

Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

Right time to resurrect this thread with some further posts on some random bits of things I've uncovered about the language since this thread was last written on. I've got three main ideas that I would like to discuss here. In this post I'm planning to discuss new discoveries as to relative segment ...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

/t s k/ /b bʷ d d͡ʒ g/ /m mʷ n ɲ ŋ/ /v w l j/ The voiced stops are prenasalised in intervocalic position and optionally prenasalised word-initially. The rounding contrast on labials is defective, with rounding being automatic adjacent to rounded vowels, and there are relatively few rounded labials o...

Re: Bear stories

:con: Asta A little bit on the clunky side as translations go, but probably the best way to convey all the information in the original sentence in a context-free setting would be the following: mityaxən tyən ‘iya‘əx‘ax yitə nya‘xwəx 1sg-Vpl-hear Vpl-thing 3erg-Ipl-strike-NOM-PL Ipl-person IIpl-bear ...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Something like what new Frislandic's phonology is going to be /(p) t̪ t͡s ʈ k kʷ/ /b d̪ d͡z ɖ (g)/ /ɬ̪ s ʂ h ʍ/ /m n̪ ɳ ɲ ŋ/ /(w) l̪ j ɽ w/ /p g/ are restricted to loanwords. Consonan clusters are only found intervocalically, and are uncommon in roots. /iə uə/ /e ə o/ /a ɒ/ /aɪ ɒʊ/ Word-final conson...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - ONGOING (signups remain open)

One that I find funny about Ring 1 is sister to cousin. It seems innocuous, but the word for “cousin” I got from Frislander was specifically male cousin and I then in turn used the term for older brother/older male parallel cousin. The original “sister” switched genders and relations but could very...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - IT BEGINS (signups remain open)

If this is how far it's going to be delayed I think I'm either going to have to drop out or be shunted to the end, cause I don't think I'm going to have access to my laptop at the time period it currently looks like I'm supposed to be doing my leg in. Apparently Click might take a bit longer too, s...

I remember this being the case too, and I don't recall the orthography changing that frequently even then.

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - SIGNUPS OPEN - STARTING Saturday 11th July - TWO RINGS

I'd better throw my hat into the ring with Asta, happy to be stuck on the end of ring 1 if that's OK.
