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

In the end, I decided that since in the conlang I was talking about the genitive and dative are based on the "oblique" stem, which on its own is the accusative, I could have the adjective inflect only for nominative, "oblique" and vocative.

Re: N̠īṛevic Family Megathread

Adjectives in PrN̠īṛevic declined for gender, number, and case. However, the declension for accusative, dative and genitive fall together in the adjectives as an "oblique" case, since the dative and genitive of the nouns are based on the accusative form. Example adjective: Vacām "larg...

I'm asking if it's possible for the adjectives to mark gender and number and not case, even if nouns decline for all three.

Is it possible to have noun-like adjectives that don't decline for case, even though the nouns do?

Re: N̠īṛevic Family Megathread

Aims and goals: The Proto-Lang is meant to be a mixture of Latin and PrDravidian. Therefore, much of the diachronics will be inspired by Romance and Dravidian languages. The family will be split into two main branches: Northwest and Southeast. The distinguishing features are the treatment of vowel l...

The N̠īṛevic languages are a family spoken on the Australia-sized continent of N̠īṛev, far to the southeast of Fuhe. Though Fuhe does not have contact, they have myths of a land they know as Antiirimpe, which features in much of their liteture as either a Utopia or, more often, as a Hostile land of ...

Re: Bàtùumi Bààcineé-Njúkaì

Modal verbs work by place the lexical verb into the infinitive. This is done by the suffix ndóo or ndoò, the latter of which occurs when the last tone is low. Most modal verbs, in addition to the past and non-past forms have negative forms. Let's look at the volitive mood. Present positive: Ntubúá P...
