By popular demand,
i'll be joining this relay with Yashuhay. The latest you can put me the best, give or take.
I would like to participate and could I please be placed right after loglorn?

I’ll perhaps be using TLFKAT or a speedlanged version thereof.

I started thinking about Híí again after not doing anything conlanging-related for two months at least. Rastattuùâtẓax ra<sta<t<tu>ù>-à>t>ẓ-à-x "I eat fish found only in the west." These words are the reason I enjoy Alál. I enjoy Alál for a whole host of reasons, but I concur that the incredibly spe...

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

How likely is it for prefixed subject/object clitics to not interact with vowel harmony The scope of vowel harmony is extremely language specific. Harmony can be either progressive or regressive (or both) and may apply to some affixes but not to others. It is not necessary for you to “demote” your ...

English fire and Thai ไฟ fai are, perhaps unsurprisingly, not cognate.

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

like how there are words that sound just like the N-word in various natlangs, but you probably wouldn't put a similar word in your conlang even if you could technically justify it as ANADEW, because it's not like you could pretend not to know it from English. This reminds me of the time when I came...

(3) Sa tidak bisa bicara. 1SG NEG can speak "It is not the case that I can speak" (4) Sa bisa tidak bicara. 1SG NEG can speak "It is the case that I can refrain from speaking."

And 1.79% are mine. That means every 56th post. That kinda makes me feel lonely.

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

This is what I’m currently playing with:

Code: Select all

p   t   c   tn  tł  ch  k
    t’  c’  tn’ tł’ ch’ k’      ’
    z   s       ł   sh  x       h
m           n   l   y   g   w
z c c’ tł tł’ ’ ł ch ch’ sh g are /θ t͡s t͡s’ t͡ɬ t͡ɬ’ ʔ ɬ t͡ʃ t͡ʃ’ ʃ ɣ/ respectively.

The vowels are /a e i u/.
