Re: Project Garnet Scratchpad

Okay, so I've made yet another update to the Proto-Garnet phonology. Please understand that I am attempting to reconcile the phonology of 3 very different languages phonologically speaking. As such, I have made a few decisions. I have reinstated the voicing distinction in sibilants. I don't know why...

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Day 5 of quarantine not going well; I'm now reading arguments in an online forum dedicated to constructed languages and worlds about politics. I've run out of toilet paper. I came to this forum to avoid Twitter where I read arguments about politics. Without toilet paper, I'm defenseless against the...

Yeah, as much as I love this process of endlessly tinkering with this language like a middle aged dad tinkering with his car, I think I will soon be done with this part of the project and can move on to derive daughters.

Re: Project Garnet Scratchpad

Small update: I have gotten rid of the voicing distinction on sibilants, and will instead derive them with sound changes in Ugrandite languages. Also, I have gotten rid of the phonemic distinction between *q and *qʰ , they will instead be one phoneme written <q> whose exact pronunciation depends on ...

Re: Project Garnet Scratchpad

So, long time no see. I've been piecemealing around, fiddling with outer language projects--I do that sometimes so I don't get burned out on this one, which despite how fun it is, can often become too much for me. I tend to lose myself, and then when I return, what usually follows are some sweeping ...

Re: Muiran Scratchpad

There will also be few verb classes based on a "thematic vowel" of sorts, akin to the -are/ere/ire system of Latin. Did you mean "be few verb classes" (emphasis on the paucity of such classes), or "be a few verb classes" (emphasis on the fact that, hey, there are some!)? A little bit of column A an...

Re: Muiran Scratchpad

Grouping gods with inanimate objects is interesting. Does this have any grammatical consequences for verbs, etc? And are the gods in this religion depicted as human figures, with separate male and female body types? ee and oo are silly looking sequences to me. I always use macrons for long vowels u...

Muiran Scratchpad

Howdy. I've decided to take a break from Project Garnet, as I wish to do some major overhauls and simplifications. This isn't the thread for it, so I'll just briefly say that the phonology I thought was bloated and the grammar both overcomplicated and not very functional/complete at the same time. S...

Re: Project Garnet Scratchpad

Do you have any specific ideas about what this originally-polite structure looked like? The idea is that it evolved from som irrealis form, but using the indicative to indicate some other nuance (such as to mute the intended meaning, or to be able to expand to more kinds of phrases). It perhaps evo...

Re: Project Garnet Scratchpad

So, it's been a while. I assure you though, this hiatus was spent wisely: I've not stopped working on Proto-Garnet. In fact, I am writing this because it is time to start wrapping up production on Proto-Garnet. I will still be adding little snippets of grammar and also more vocabulary, but at that p...

Corphishy: Something about the general shape of the words you created is rather aesthetically pleasing, I feel, and it was often interesting to compare the phonetic and phonemic transcriptions of a word.
