Re: Pākíka - IE lang

looks nice (:

also the name looks kinda Polynesian, which makes me wonder if you are planning on a polynesian-sounding IE language, but judging from the samples you have made, it seems to not be Polynesian-inspired.

Re: Most-likely Pathways/Elements for Language Combination

There is no clear theory of mixed languages. Traditional Stambaum models pose they shouldn't exist. But it is empirically evident languages can grow together. It seems that they have the vocabulary of the prestige language and grammar of the non-prestige language. So they are an extreme case of (2)...

Re: Most-likely Pathways/Elements for Language Combination

So, annoyingly, I accidentally hit refresh on this page while writing my response, so I only have time to throw together a quick response, buuuut: 1) Typically, what tends to get borrowed is vocabulary, rather than morphology or phonology (these are borrowed, just to a lesser extent, and, I think, ...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

Kompalia on the other hand is IIRC mostly located on B2 and C2 as well as possibly some D3? That might be too far away geographically, but its not impossible that some interaction might take place if they go further east and find a way across the mountains once the Bokisig confederation has settled...

Re: Damta: A collaborative world

I was just thinking of customs the desert tribes may have. What if there was a tradition of "sky burial" or "silent towers" where basically you put a dead body up high in a specially made tower or on a rock specifically for scavenging birds to consume? The idea being that the body should not be bur...

Before too much time passes, do you think there should be any more major rivers or is this pretty good to your eyes? I feel as though I should add some more in the north actually. Even though it is arctic or tundra I notice rivers still exist in such regions. sure we should give some major rivers a...

Re: Creating pronouns and grammatical words/affixes

Articles can arise from demonstratives. i.e. English “the” is from “that”. Indefinite Pronouns can be from nouns or interrogative pronouns i.e. “someone”, “anyone/anybody”, “everyone/everybody”, “nobody” can arise from compounds involving the word for “person”, “body”, “one” or “who”; “something”, “...
