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

How likely is it for prefixed subject/object clitics to not interact with vowel harmony Not very, I think, but certainly it's not unheard of to have affixes that ignore harmony. Hungarian has the suffix -kor , which ignores vowel harmony, thus: egykor "at one" kettőkor "at two" háromkor "at three" ...

Oh my God . . . the Kankonian word for "citrus" is tzelua! Have we just found a false concognate?
Evidently. Atili is not (to my knowledge) related to Kankonian.

Re: If natlangs were conlangs

Basque is terribly unrealistic, I'm afraid. Nobody could ever possibly reliably produce the s̻/s̺ distinction, which the designer doubled down on with corresponding affricates, let alone actually hearing the distinction.

Overall, very interesting, but I'm confused by your decision to write a geminate uvular plosive with "c," while all other geminates are formed by doubling the letter. [:)]

Re: How NOT to Conworld.

You raise good points. I would argue that a close copy of the real world is a bad conworld in the same way that a relex of English is a bad conlang; it's not that there isn't value there, but the idea was to produce something new, that hasn't been accomplished. I obviously need to refine my second p...

Re: How NOT to Conworld.

I, for one, think that your conworld is only bad if: 1. It is a shallow copy of the real world, especially if it trivializes real-world problems; 2. It is devoid of interest or is obviously underdeveloped; or 3. It otherwise fails to meet the goals that you the creator set out for it. ...which is ac...
