Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Realizing there's something a bit sad about seeing words from Polish, Hungarian, etc. like Łódź or Szőcs and not looking at them with the same awe and confusion at their pronunciation and spelling like most other non-speakers seem to do.

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Recently I'm planning to make a Sinosphere Austronesian (presumably non-Malayo-Polynesian) conlang. Is it possible for such a language to be spoken in Ryukyu islands? (Without major change in historical background; note that there is little account about Ryukyus before 1200s, so an early Austronesi...

Re: Neugrotien - Para-Slavic lang

The thing that strikes me as most unusual about /ʒɛnisn/ is that coda /s/. Under French sound changes, it would drop and lengthen the preceding vowel. If there were any palatalization, it would have already ejected a yod, which would undergo more changes with the vowel. Given that it comes from *že...

Re: Neugrotien - Para-Slavic lang

I like where this is going. The noun cases in particular are turning out in really interesting ways that remind me a lot in some ways of all the confusing and counterintuitive cases in Icelandic. Which is definitely a compliment from someone studying languages! Here are a few comments on some of thi...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Wasn't any confusing at all, and a detailed description cannot be too much long! Did some of the changes actually happen in OTL Chamic / Champan language though? None of these changes are found in proto-Chamic which is part of what makes this whole thing so incredible with the Southeast Asian Sprac...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

I might've entered quite too late to this board, but I have to ask a question: how did an Austronesian language like Ởnh·Vú (and Cham, for the matter) develop its tones? I still have plenty to post to this board actually [:)]. The Sinosphere is filled with languages from many different families tha...

This is also the origin of -band in husband.

I don't see you asking anything but it sounds like an interesting idea. Maybe series of voiced and voiceless spirants? Sorry, I was actually asking if people thought it would be an interesting idea.

Currently thinking about making a Slavic language.

Grammar would be similar to the Southern Slavic languages but vocabulary and phonology wou...
