Re: Tamar

:wls: Welsh (from beibl.net) Dyma Jwda yn cael gwraig i Er, ei fab hynaf. Tamar oedd ei henw hi. Ond roedd Er yn ddrwg, a dyma'r ARGLWYDD yn gadael iddo farw.

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

I'm stuck in a predicament. I originally only had masculine and feminine, but I came up with a third gender, the inanimate/neuter. I don't entirely know how this new noun class could come into existence from a noun class binary, so it creates problems with how nouns in this gender concord with pron...

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

In Finnic at least, gradation is a stress-related phenomenon. I have to reread Kielen vuosituhannet . I think this lang could have some kind of a tonal accent. Is gradation more unlikely in a language without SAE stress? Am I missing something here? Firstly, what does stress have to do with syllabi...

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

For what it's worth, I agree with Pabappa. It's unusual for Latin geminates in Romance languages to be treated as anything other than lengthened consonants, rather than consonant clusters. While on the surface they are both treated differently to singletons, geminates generally change as a whole and...

Re: Is Irish North Germanic plausible?

Icelandic and Faroese are debatably borne of some Irish influence if you track their interactions, but it would be limited at best. For instance, the aspirated-lenis contrast that Scottish Gaelic and Icelandic and Faroese share could be argued as stemming from the Irish fortis-lenis series (although...
