Re: Yay or Nay?

Ok, so I was going to discourse, but after sleeping on it (I probably should have done that first :P) come to a "solution" that I like, which is that deictic markers are postverbal and mandated, but actually distinguish temporal remoteness over spatial remoteness (cf the relative impermissability of...

Re: Yay or Nay?

So I’ve been working a bit on the Hlaitype A Priori, and I started working on a longer translational text. I’ve been thinking about existentials too. Right now I’m thinking that existentials are formed from a combination of a deictic pronoun and a verb (probably the copula), similar to the comparabl...

Re: Typological voting game

I would also like to vote for A and M, but M has eleven consonants even though the maximum is ten. Could we maybe agree to remove a consonant from it or in some other way remedy this? Oh! Wow, thanks for pointing that out! Somehow I totally missed that. Well, it's my fault for not checking the subm...

You’re thinking too hard. Just think of what the words are together.

Response to shimo qwed117: First, I was once again very impressed with your dedication to keeping up with Sardinian throughout the month while simultaneously coining words for three conlangs every day. Honestly, the fact that you're studying Sardinian itself is impressive; there can't be too many re...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

Oh, then I think I'd been misreading what you'd written. I thought the English "translation" was the archaic/dialectal term, but now I can see that's not what you said. Since I am still thoroughly stumped, though, is the English "translation" transparently derived from an adjective? [cross] For wha...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

I should be clearer with what I said, the English "translation" would encompass the "semantic space" that àcogliuac and another word in this language occupy (that is English -> {àcogliuac, other word}, not English -> {àcogliuac + other word}). There's an archaic/dialectal word that would directly t...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

I'm feeling pretty stumped, so if anyone else wants to jump in, please feel free to do so, of course. There's not really an *exact* non-archaic/dialectal equivalent, but there's definitely a one-word translation that is close enough (which contains the meaning of àcogliuac and another word) Is this...

Re: phrase modifying game

No, I think this should be fine. If we really want to use a language other than English, we would simply need glosses. Regardless, we don't start anew until *after* the sentence is clearly distinct.

Re: My Proto-Language and Where to Go from Here

Well, the language looks fine, although it would be nice to have a greater view of its lexicon. From my understanding, in most languages the "biggest change" between languages is typically lexical replacement- that is that the definitions of words change, or that words are replaced by substrate or a...
