Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

My current vowel system is the standard five vowels, except with /ɪ/ instead of /i/. I know it's cliched, but I'm just using that system as a placeholder, for now. Below, is a new vowel system I came up with, though it is not official? /a ɛ ɪ ɔ œ ɪ ʊ ʏ/ <a e i o ö u ü> I generally prefer /e/ over /...

Re: relative clause strategy

Well seeing as you have a pronoun of some sort actually inside the relative clause fulfilling the role of the head noun it's not gapping any more, unless you want to try and argue that it's some kind of external relative pronoun, in which case why isn't it next to the head noun. Other than that, I ...

Re: relative clause strategy

Thanks a lot guys, it really helped! I think I'll stick with the gapping strategy, with a prenominal position, and a relative pronoun that agrees only in number with the head noun, but retains the case of the head noun. Example: Vir žemakt mygajav paziher, bogodu. that-NOM-PL door-ACC open-3P key-PL...

relative clause strategy

Does this strategy for creating relative clauses make sense to you? Is there any natlang doing this? "In ckoerrolu relative clauses are formed by a correlative strategy (I don't know if this is the correct term), with the relative pronoun "vi" that is declined in case and number to re...

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

I have some questions. Is it the same thing to transcribe [ai̯] and [aj]? Are they both considered diphthongs? If not, what's the difference and why do some language transcriptions use [ai̯] and others use [aj] if it corresponds to the same sound phonetically? Second question: in portuguese there is...
