Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I have no idea about Solresol, but if you want colours and notes... why not have initial consonants mapped to colours, vowels to notes and final consonants to their softness/hardness (whatever the technical term is)? Sticking to 12 notes per octave for simplicity's sake, and 12 colours just because ...

Re: Other Creativity

Enjoy! <3 Sounds cool! The vocals don't sound at all bad to my ears, they fit the track just fine how they are. Maybe a little bit "dry" and low in the mix at times, but of course vocals don't always have to be front and centre anyway. The drums are very punchy, which is nice, and the syn...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

If your language doesn't use <y> or <w>, you could always just use them for schwa and then make a little note. The people who care would have cared anyway and the ones who don't wouldn't anyway. It does use both, specifically this is the phonology and orthography: /m n ŋ/ <m n ng> /p b t d k g/ <p ...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

English Respelling uses UH right? As a German speaker, I would also chose <ö> btw. The problem with <uh> is that it looks really, really, really ugly. Not that <ö> looks pretty or anything, and English-speakers might think it's just /o/ and some will probably even think it's supposed to be an exagg...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

No - nobody knows that a rotated 'e' indicates a schwa, and if they did they wouldn't know what a schwa was. I mean, there's a non-zero chance that they might randomly guess a schwa-like sound, because people do sort of revert to more 'grunty' sounds when they don't know how something can be said, ...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Kind of a stupid question, but... if a conlang (in a story) is meant to be easily pronounceable somewhat correctly by at least English-speakers (and my Finnish-speaking dad lol), possibly German-speakers too, maybe others but dunno, would using <ə> for /ə/ be pronounceable to people who have zero kn...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Thoughts? The "dots consistently below" one looks the best on its own imho, but a thing to consider (or at least that I usually consider) is whether consonants have more diacritics above them or below them (if at all), and then have the opposite be the default on vowels. So if the languag...
