Re: The Great Exposition of Ruykkarraber

Charming thread of conversation. This is basically how I read it:
"Mark Rosenfelder is WRONG and doesn't understand transitivity because he called intrans subjs Experiencers!!! I also hate all his conlangs!!!!"
But idk. I’m just strange like that.

Re: Large Inventories

My conlang TLFKAT had several iterations where the consonant segments numbered nearly a hundred. I believe this version contained 101 consonants?

I should go back to working on it.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I lost sleep adding o to Apwapɨrɨng. Please elaborate! It’s not very interesting I’m afraid. Apwapɨrɨng is a language with two phonemic vowels /a ɨ/ and much allophony which thus far had only yielded the graphemes a i ɨ u . I’ve now decided verbs starting in /wɨ/ wu- when combined with the prefixes...

Re: What do you do when a conword happens to match a slur?

I wouldn’t do anything. A word the spelling or pronunciation of which happens to appear similar to that of a slur or expletive or embarrassing body part noun in another language is bound to occur in almost any language, constructed or otherwise. A string of sounds without intent to offend or harm is...

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

So, my current project has no grammatical tense. Time is marked via a combination of particles, mood, and aspect. However, despite having to tense marking, verbs are still conjugated for aspect and mood. Is this too weird? It is not at all weird. Many languages have more developed aspectual systems...
