Re: Nicely presented conlangs

Mecislau's Novegradian and other languages, as already said.

I am also a fan of Dewrad's Dravian and also Parra which inspired my own Goetisch.

Re: Rōmī d'Levnōnī : a Lebanese Romlang

Love the choice of location. Tempted to try a romlang there too.

The macrons are also a nice touch. Can the language be written in another alphabet than Latin (Arabic perhaps?)

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Cool avatar Qwed! Well I got the old rom-lang itch again, and after stumbling upon All4Ɇn's Gallo-Tuscan conlang I was inspired to do something similar with the Tuscan Gorgia. I reckon this language would be spoken in the northern Apennine Mountains, though for now I will leave the exact details vag...

Re: How many conlangs have phonemic nasal vowels?!

The Norse-Algonquian creole I am working on has phonemic nasal vowels, and its probably the farthest thing from French you can think of. Personally, I love nasal vowels.

Re: Omzinesý's Germanic Lang

Ah I saw devoicing and fricativization and jumped to the conclusion it should have been Southern. (Well maybe not necessarily Southern, but more southern.) But devoicing of plosives is actually fairly typologically common for Germanic languages, Icelandic does it, and so does my Crimean Gothic (base...

Re: Omzinesý's Germanic Lang

For a language in northern germany those sound changes are very southern

Looks good otherwise. For some crazy ideas you can look up German dialects such as Chemnitz

Re: Old Norse-Cree mixed language?

My apologies for the late response, I kept formulating a reply and then later deleting it. I believe that a pidgin/creole would be the more likely scenario here. Perhaps a pidgin arose naturally from vikings arriving from Greenland and Iceland to the area in order to trade with the natives of the ar...

Old Norse-Cree mixed language?

I wanted to recently get back into conlanging, and revisit one of my old ideas for a descendant of Old Norse in North America. Though it wouldn't be a straight descendant, but rather a creole or mixed language between Old Norse and a dialect of Cree (perhaps one of the tribes the Norse would have fi...

Re: How would you go about creating a Germanic conlang that is Spanish like?

Something feels strange here ... A germlang that looks like Spanish s like something that has been attempted before, probably derived from Gothic.

What i did was remove the -ns element from the accusative plural entirely to differentiate the two.

Re: Modern Danubian Gothic Scratchpad

Be aware that the "Goths" were generally not always a homogenous group, they picked up many other Germanic tribes and called themselves "Goths." I think Vasiliev's account is the best we have at the moment for the history of the Crimean Goths, so digging through that could be use...
