Re: My Proto-Language and Where to Go from Here

Gotta say, this is actually cool to see what a Bantu language could look like, you know, given time, especially, to my knowledge, none of those languages that have inspired this HAVE, yet.

Re: Question for a phonetically simple interlang

My goal isn’t really to have a “naturalistic” phoneme inventory, though I do think it ended up being sufficiently naturalistic for my purposes. My dilemma is more along the lines of “Am I allowed to include the /p/ phoneme, even though not all languages in my list have it as-is, when my initial con...

Re: Question for a phonetically simple interlang

In my experience so far (not that there’s been a vast amount of it!), my (in my opinion justified) working hypothesis is, the only theory-neutral cross-linguistic predictor of naturalism is learnability. There are actually mathematicized and/or quantified and/or empirical studies of learnability. I...

Re: Question for a phonetically simple interlang

Frankly, I think /m/ is a handy substitute for: 1. being the ONLY nasal, 2. being the ONLY labial, and 3. being the strangely adorable completion to your series of "approximates." Not having a nasal ISN'T odd, but noting that there is ONE left insists that there were; no labial ISN'T odd, but the s...

Thinking it has to do with Vlurch’s last two posts here?
I was NOT going to "quote" that thing, sifting through the deletion process of that menagerie, otherwise, that would have been way more clear.

Much love, Vlürch. It's all for comedic effect.

Re: Ulion

I'm curious, why did you decide against /ʋ/ being in a co-articulated consonant cluster? Of any which that could be, THAT would have definitely given off an Indian vibe. 😀

Re: Canocua verbs, slot 2: non-singular animate infix

Anyway, I do have a small tidbit right now I can share. Canocua, like many Iroquoian languages, has a non-singular animate prefix, -ga- (from Proto-Northern-Iroquoian and Proto-Iroquoian -ka- ). According to Charles, the prefix precedes the pronominal prefix slot to change a 3rd person animate argu...

Something obnoxious - a tongueless phonology. Well, a tongueless consonant inventory: /m/ /p ʔ/ /f h/ /v ʕ/ /ʕ/ is variously [ʕ~ʕ̝~ɦ~ɑ̯] Syllable structure is (C)V(C), with any consonant permitted in coda position, but with some degree of historic and synchronic simplication and assimilation noneth...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Symmetrical Arabic inspired: That's a pretty interesting inventory, I especially like that it has aspirated fricatives. Reminds me a bit of Vietnamese and Burmese, but it does also definitely have that Afro-Asiatic vibe too. Would you consider it naturalistic? I was hoping to give each consonant ty...

Re: Crona (redux)

You listed VCCVC- twice. The single-syllable skeletons in that list are: VC- CVC- VCC- CVCC- The fourth one, CVCC-, can’t combine with another syllable to be five or fewer phonemes. And you don’t want two syllables of the second or third type (CVC- or VCC-) to combine. But, aside from VC.VC-, you c...

Re: Crona (redux)

OM roots: All roots must end in a consonant; the longest roots may only consist of 5 phonemes. (About 20% of roots have 5.) Otherwise, there are only a FEW rules used to determine viability. Like consonants can not begin and end the same syllable. (But roots may break THIS rule if they are open to s...
