Does a CALS profile count?
I mispoke. CWS is members-only, CALS is great (and I remember my CALS login). CALS is actually a great place to start.

CALS is members-only and I forgot my login [:S] But have you looked at the distribution of features in your conlangs and noticed anything interesting? Is the distribution very different from *here*? Did anybody ever conduct a typological study on their own conlangs? Maybe on basic word order or phon...

Re: Trilingual altlang scenarios

How about a Romlang in South-Eastern Germany, which could be an extension of Romansh checked against Slavic neighbouring languages and Germanic neighbouring languages? (Of course you could also do a Slavic language in the Western Alps or a Germanic language close to Romania) Or maybe a Slavic langua...

Re: Nicely presented conlangs

I just read the newest conlang description in fiat lingua here and it's probably among my top 3 of nicely presented conlangs. It's a grammar of Wóxtjanato by Jessie Sams.

Maybe I am wrong, but does your inventory really have two phonemic click POAs? Couldn't you say you only have phonemic dental clicks?

Phoible mentions Malagasy as having /ʈɹ̠̥/ and Wikipedia does not disagree.

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

Maybe the idea was to include aspirated nasals as simple onsets only? I so, I would just write to formula:

(P).(C)(G)V(N)(ʔ)
(P).MV(N)(ʔ)

where M includes only aspirated nasals.

Re: Diphthongs

Have you checked the Phoible database?
Edit: Also, IPA would make the table easier to understand. Plus, I think the table is incomplete in various ways.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Interesting [:)] /ə/ is usually [+ATR] but if there are two schwa vowels, one is often special. So, it still looks naturalistic. I thought it is quite random which vowels happen to be outside the harmony. But allophonically, it is possible that /ə/ has a -ATR counterpart. I didn't actually know tha...

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

I think the first option is generally more common, but eventually this has to be answered on a language specific basis. If the language only allows open syllables the second option might be possible. It is important to note that syllable structure is abstract and cannot be measured easily. Instead, ...

If there is a preceding vowel in the same syllable it's definitely a coda consonant.

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

Interesting points, espacially the side note on theology. I was thinking about adding a non-sentient/non-sapient species (in the sci-fi sense) to my conworld that comes close to the definition of civilization *there*, maybe some eusocial semi-aquatic con-mammal. But maybe only people discussing theo...

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