Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

The idea is sesquisyllabic languages is that words consist of 1.5 syllables, a main syllable and a non-main syllable.

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

Okay, so something that springs to mind is that pronouns and adpositions also have a very low lexical or semantic content in some languages.

Re: My reverse enge-lang: V:1g3n1n:1

I still would love to read about, if you have something worked out. One example of the differences I was looking for is, that your phonemes do not change their major place of articulation depending on the position.

Re: Yay or Nay?

That's a yay from me. It is realistic to me, even if it is not naturalistic in the strict sense. I think I already talked to you in the past about ad-sentential and ad-verbal adverbs and that they are syntactically (and maybe morphologically) different in some languages. I also read something on ad-...

Re: My reverse enge-lang: V:1g3n1n:1

I do not always make hallucinogenics graduate conlangs, but when I do, I put them on here. No, seriously, most of my conlangs are more naturalistic. Also, if you have a similar project that goes more into the naturalistic conlang direction, it might be cool to have a comparison. I mean, the underlyi...

1. Does nearly every natlang that has both noun-roots and adjective-roots distinct from each other, have significantly more noun-roots than adjective-roots? 2.

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

What exactly do you mean by that? A uvular trill with an alveolar lateral release? A uvular trill with a velar lateral release? As for a uvular lateral release, people have argued that uvular laterals are impossible. Anyway, I don't think any of these is attested in any natlang I know of. The close...

Re: What if Aztlan and Atlantis were cognate names?

[...] The other is the question of the origin of the name. "Atlantis" obviously looks like a derivative of Atlas; but if we fancifully imagine that the name is non-Greek in origin, that could be a folk etymology; in which case, it would be natural for a Greek looking to locate a place called 'Atlan...

Re: What if Aztlan and Atlantis were cognate names?

So, I will talk about Etymology and historical linguistics. Maybe someone else can do conhistory and congeography. The facts are mostly gathered from Wikipedia and such places, so feel free to improve the story. <Aztlan> is /ˈast͡ɬaːn/ in Nahuatl and has an uncertain etymology. <Atlantis> is derived...

Is a uvular later trill attested in any natlangs? I have it contrasting with a "typical" uvular trill and a palatalized version in one of my conlangs, thus yielding /ʀ ʀʲ ʀˡ/.
