Re: Resources on linguistic features

The World Atlas of Language Structures (wals.info) is a good place to start.

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

I guess you could call it preventative, but I don't think it's a well established term.
Edit: Also, I think prohibitive is mostly used for simple forms, less often for combined forms.

Why not call the form negative causative or causative negative?

Re: Playing with 3S Language

I didn't mean it as a result. I was actually thinking of making such a sketchlang, because the Tarot card concepts are famously flexible.

Re: Roman Emperor Statistics

Ok, got it. All in all, it seems to be very different. Succession is much more based on biological relations and the other numbers do not really seem to correlate.

Re: Roman Emperor Statistics

Really fascinating and helpful. I always thought an average reign of 5 years (in conworlding) was too long, but it seems that's not the case. Also, interesting too see that non-institutionalized methods of succession were somehow more common and more stable. Did I understand that correctly?

Re: Silvish

Some verbs rarely appear in the pasó semplo because their consequences are usually irreversible. The main ones that I know of right now are morî "die" and tuâ "kill". I'm don't know if there are verbs of the opposite persuasion, where their consequences are almost always undone;...

What's an arealis mood? Is it similar to a realis mood? If so, why not call it realis mood? Or does it indicate strong epistemic neccesity?

Re: Seeking a linguistic term

A language where there is an exact one-to-one relation between phonemes and morphemes does not have double articulation/duality of patterning. Maybe you could say it's singly articulated? Or you could say it has Monism of patterning. Also, does such a language really have phonemes/morphemes? Only on...

Re: (L&N) The day before the day before yesterday and the day after the day after tomorrow.

I think it is /ɪ/ [ɪ], but it feels a bit higher and more front than the <i> in <ich>. It is not /i/ though.

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

Implosives are also partially glottalic ingressive. The only cluster I have seen to develop into and from implosives is a cluster of a glottal stop and a voiced plosive (in either order). As for clicks, IIRC, there is a debate. Complex click onsets are either analyzed as clusters of clicks with pulm...

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

IIRC correctly, most languages with implosives have a relatively simple syllable structure, but this might be a coincidence. Ejectives definitely occur in clusters though.

Re: How do you say "bee" and "wasp" in Algic languages?

Just wanted to mention that bumblebees (Hummeln) are not considered bees in German. I was also taught that they bite.
