Re: Languages with interesting phonotactics

Whispering [some level of (supra)laryngeal turbulence/vibration] isn't the same as actual voicelessness [a complete lack of (supra)laryngeal turbulence/vibration], in fact you can even phonetically distinguish whispering from voicelessness. A whispered [g] from a voiceless [k]. There's a number of ...

I just recently read something similar about a Chinese language, where a suffix became an infix and splits up diphthongs now.

The cuneiform looks cool. Was it inspired by qny particular script? Ugaritic, maybe?

Is this post on morphology or syntax? VSO word order is nice, but polypersonal agreement suffixes are also cool.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

The thing is that pitch accent is used for different things. For some people it is a third category besides tone and stress, e.g. look at Larry Hyman's papers. That's why I was asking. Just to find out what pitch accent means here.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Why is it considered pitch accent and not regular word accent? Is it because it is only realized as pitch and not length?

Re: What colleges/universities offer documentary linguistics courses?

I know that the University of Wiscounsin did some documentation and classes on Hoocąk. I am pretty sure there is some language documentation at the University of Chicago, but I might be wrong. At Ohio State University there is Judith Tonhauser who has worked on Guarani. I am really no expert though ...

Re: Short Study on Ejectives and Aspiration

Is there a way to control for language family and area? I've been mostly on the receiving size of statistics, so I don't know for sure, but maybe you could include Macro-Areas à la Glottolog and Genus à la WALS I see you already mentioned it. I think the problem is that there are several areas and l...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

This was an idea for a hatelang, similar to Omlueuet. It has two different romanizations. I don't really see how it is a hatelang now apart from the huge fricative inventory and the three low vowels. It's really an X-shaped vowel inventory. Consonants: /t tʃ k/ <t č k> <t ch k> /b d dʒ/ <b d ǯ> <b d...
