Re: Introducing XIPA. (IPA & X-SAMPA input tool)

Just noticed another bug: the divider of major intonation groups isn't converted. Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. I'll try to look into this when I have some time to spare! I noticed you fixed this at some point. Thanks! No, I still haven't got around to it. It seems to work when you input it, b...

Re: Conlang YouTube, Metal Music, Emotions, Etc. [Split]

Youtube's default setting is to hold potentially offensive comments and spam for review (you can change it to allow all comments being published immediately). So if you go to the Held for review tab, you might find some lost comments there. It is also my impression that you'll still be notified of c...

XIPA is now listed at https://www.frathwiki.com/Software_tools_for_conlanging ! I don't understand why you insist on writing my old username when refering to me. It's entirely irrelevant in the given context and the reason I changed it is because I don't want to use it anymore. Just noticed another...

Thanks for letting me know! 🙂

Re: Introducing XIPA. (IPA & X-SAMPA input tool)

One thing I didn't know I was missing in particular was the inventory of suprasegmentals as buttons. In particular, for some reason, the X-SAMPA codes for tones have never felt intuitive for me, even though I understood in theory that _T = "top" ˥, _H = "high" ˦, _M = "mid" ˧, _L = "low" ˨, and _B ...

Re: Introducing XIPA. (IPA & X-SAMPA input tool)

Thank you so much for this revamped version of XIPA! I see it both looks nicer and also has more things, like the zero-morpheme marker ∅ (through a button). It's wonderful! I'd love it if you could correct a small bug that was also present in the ancient version: the ˞ (rhotic) marker for some reas...

Re: Vowel Harmony and Diphthongs

The existence of diphthongs like /oi/ and /eu/ in Finnish made it seem clear that the secondary vowel of a diphthong is irrelevant to vowel harmony (at least in some languages), but then I read on Wikipedia that /i/ and /e/ are neutral in Finnish, which sent me back to square one. I haven't read th...

Re: The Esseintial Ch’eweyõw̌e Blog

I enjoyed reading this (which is to say the posts from this year, since I figured the previous ones were out of date). I too like the general esthetic of the language. The various processes give it an extra layer of depth without going overboard. As for the phonetic realisation, acute-accented sylla...

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

Why do, in some old documents, Russians call the Tlingits "колюжах" meaning thorns? I'm very confused. It's probably a variation of this name: The Russian name Koloshi (Колоши, from a Sugpiaq-Alutiiq term kulut'ruaq for the labret worn by women) or the related German name Koulischen may be encounte...

Re: Is there a way to display how strongly a consonant is pronounced in IPA?

An example of this would be the French word "comprendre," meaning understand. The IPA for this (as retrieved from a website, I'm not sure how accurate it is) is "kɔ̃pʁɑ̃dʁ," however when I listened to an audio of the IPA reading the final ʁ was very light. I am uncertain on how to attach a file, so...

Re: How necessary are noun cases?

I agree with your point, but with emphasis on the first part, these two are possible, right? Das Buch gebe ich dir. Dir gebe ich das Buch. In Scandinavian, such frontings are common, despite there not being either case marking on nouns or number agreement on verbs. (Which in a way makes it a semi-co...

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

I’ve been working on a diachronic language that develops glottalized vowels from a variety of sources. I don’t particularly want glottalization to remain in the language, but I also don’t want to convert it to tone, at least not yet. What could I do with the glottalized vowels? For context, the vow...
