Re: Ideas for African Chamic conlanging

As for the Mascarenes idea, I estimate that the upper bound of population in 1700s on Mauritius proper (1864.8 km2), Reunion (2511 km2, but more mountainous) and Rodrigues (108km2) to be ca. 150,000, 100,000 and 5,000 respectively, presumably speaking the dialect of the same language or intelligible...

Re: Ideas for African Chamic conlanging

I'm recently attempting on a Sino-Austronesian conlang (and perhaps Sino-Altaic as well), but I'm not sure which branch to choose. Considering the Ryukyu Trench, North Formosan/Kavalanic seems more plausible (instead of languages on the east coast of Taiwan); but I wonder why cultural exchange betwe...

Re: Ideas for African Chamic conlanging

How plausible is it for the Austronesian family to spread in another direction, i.e. to the north(east) into Ryukyu islands?

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 Austronesia...

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

I wonder the opposition of *-t- and *-d- in locative & ablative cases as well as the old past suffix (may be used as perfective though) -DI- would be retained to date; anyway, Chuvash did that (-t- vs -r-). In Common Turkic, -dA and -dAn have been leveled (even after n/l/r, in post-Orkhon period), s...

Re: Stress and rhythm oddities

1. Yes. In Eskyl, all words are usually initially stressed; however, loanwords of Latin/Romance origin are often stressed on penult or antepenult if ending in a vowel, and on the final syllable if ending in a consonant (i.e. the vowel has been dropped). 2. Yes. For nouns, compound are stringed toget...

My Carpathian Bulgar is likewise a project for "Turkic outlier" and an experiment of language contact (with Romance, Slavic, Ugric and even Palaeo-Balkan languages).

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

Számos nyelvi tény igazolja azt, hogy az ősmagyar kor kezdetén a magyar szavak magánhangzóra végződtek. A rokon nyelvek ismeretében az alapnyelvi szavak végére magánhangzót rekonstruálhatunk: fgr. *käte > kéz, ur. *kumpa > hab, ur. *ńele- > nyel. Török jövevényszavaink közül ilyen hangszerkezetre u...

Re: Jäzik Panúski

Slavic loanwords in Hungarian have multiple strata, including South, East and West origins (by wiktionary category); though I've not seen a word of definitely East Slavic origin (e.g. judging from liquid sequences of ToroT/TereT/ToloT). Romanian seems to contain both South and East Slavic loanwords....

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

Maybe all -yľ/-oľ endings became -yt/-ot by Hungarian influence as well as analogy? The equivalent of "monda" is tentatively formed by adding -GAn (present participle) and personal pronoun (then merged altogether) e.g. *dē-gen be 'I said/I used to say' > déjem (while this structure is often used as ...

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

When it comes to CB, I doubt whether the distinction between monda and mondott exists, and wonder what the suffix would look like. For instance, front-vowel vocalic stems: *dē-me > dé-me 'to say' *dē-je be > dé-je-p > dép (?) 'I say' *dē > dé > (through analogy?) dé-j 'he/she says' *dē-di-m > dé-ly-...

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

This conlang (hereafter CB)'s TMA system is inspired by Old Hungarian: telicity (telic/atelic) opposition is shown by prefixes, and present/past opposition is shown by -dI suffixes. Gerstner et al. analysed the Old Hungarian system as composed by 5 tenses: simple present, simple past/narrative, pres...

Re: Eskêl (Carpathian Bulgar) Scratchpad

Az ősmagyar kor hangtani jelenségei körében kétségtelennek tűnik a változatok megléte. Bizonyos hangeltolódások kétirányú megfelelései arra utalnak, hogy a szókezdő zárhangok spirantizálódása egyes szavakban nem történt meg, ezekben a csoportnyelvszokás megtartotta az eredeti hangot (ugyanabban a s...

I've read some Rusyn grammar books, among which the Ivan Harajda's grammar (published in 1941 at then Hungary-occupied Ungvar/Uzhhorod in a Rusyn variant) stated that some dialect have a /ø~y/ corresponding to standard Ukrainian /i/ and Russian /o/, coming from Proto-Slavic *o plus a consonant + a y...

Many Rusyn dialects still have front rounded vowels.
