I'm not trying to be especially Indian. I just feel this lang has some indian vibe. Probably it is just my personal feeling.

Re: Ulion

Genders Ulion has four genders, though the status of the two latter ones may be argued. Masculine (males, other random nouns) Feminine (females, diminutives ending in -i, other random nouns) Collective (Plurals of all nouns belong to this gender. Also collective nouns, like 'family', belong to it.) ...

Ulion

Ulion or Uliōn [ʊlɪ'(j)ɔ:n] is my newest conlanging project. My feeling is that it has some Indian (of India) but idk. There seems to be some effect from DesEsseintes' Ch’eweyõw̌e, as well.

This seems to be a satellite-framed lang. A goal argument can be added to all motion verbs. They don't say 'I swim and go to land'.

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

Many languages can combine an applicative and a passive. That basically leads to the same result. That is actually the etymology of the Philipine circumstantial Citation needed, maybe? Ross, so far as I can see, reconstructs a PMP circumstantial affix that's simply <b>i-</b>, which doesn't look tra...

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

In conlanging, I have supposed/defined that the circumstantial voice just promotes something that is not a subject or a (direct) object into the subject.

Re: Pekadja zeba

Something about syntax 1) I'm testing a system where nouns and verbs are syntactically similar. That is, every noun can be seen as a predicate 'to be X' and every verb can be seen as a noun 'Xer'. This appears in Tongan and Salishan, so I did not invent it myself. We will see if it really succeeds....

Re: Pekadja zeba

When a noun is preceded by a modifier, it often undergoes a initial consonant lenition. Morphologically, the lenited form could be colled Construct state, with an non-typological term. Voiceless/aspirated stops become voiced stops. Voiced stops become voiced fricatives. /s/ is voiced to /z/. Vowel-i...

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

What could be the origin of retroflex affricates? In Slavic languages, they usually derive from palatals/postalveolars after new palatalization has pushed them to retroflexes. In Swedish, retroflexes derive from /r/ + a velar, but they are not affricates. I think English <tr> is pronounced as an af...

Re: How necessary are noun cases?

I think "case languages" are actually simpler than those without. In "case languages" cases express semantic roles (who does and who is done to) and word order expresses topicality (about whom the clause is about). Of course, cases can well be adpositions rather than morphological cases. Boring Finn...

Fist attempt?
I guess it'll not be the final version.
I don't even know if /o/ is mid-low or mid-high, which will be distinct in Pākíka.
