Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Something obnoxious - a tongueless phonology. Well, a tongueless consonant inventory: /m/ /p ʔ/ /f h/ /v ʕ/ /ʕ/ is variously [ʕ~ʕ̝~ɦ~ɑ̯] Syllable structure is (C)V(C), with any consonant permitted in coda position, but with some degree of historic and synchronic simplication and assimilation noneth...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Symmetrical Arabic inspired: That's a pretty interesting inventory, I especially like that it has aspirated fricatives. Reminds me a bit of Vietnamese and Burmese, but it does also definitely have that Afro-Asiatic vibe too. Would you consider it naturalistic? I was hoping to give each consonant ty...

Something like what new Frislandic's phonology is going to be /(p) t̪ t͡s ʈ k kʷ/ /b d̪ d͡z ɖ (g)/ /ɬ̪ s ʂ h ʍ/ /m n̪ ɳ ɲ ŋ/ /(w) l̪ j ɽ w/ /p g/ are restricted to loanwords.

Re: Crona (redux)

You listed VCCVC- twice. The single-syllable skeletons in that list are: VC- CVC- VCC- CVCC- The fourth one, CVCC-, can’t combine with another syllable to be five or fewer phonemes. And you don’t want two syllables of the second or third type (CVC- or VCC-) to combine. But, aside from VC.VC-, you c...

Re: Crona (redux)

OM roots: All roots must end in a consonant; the longest roots may only consist of 5 phonemes. (About 20% of roots have 5.) Otherwise, there are only a FEW rules used to determine viability. Like consonants can not begin and end the same syllable. (But roots may break THIS rule if they are open to s...

Five-letter words.

So, this might seem like a strange question (or not), but does anyone have an affinity for five-letter words? I'm far from calling it a phenomenon, because I only ever recall seeing it mentioned in one place, a while ago...does anyone know what I'm talking about? If so, why does it seem so appealing...

Re: Crona (redux)

I do want to post something new about this language: words for body parts. I've been considering something interesting: inalienable plurality. The root for the part of a body with symmetry will be, inherently, pluralized. As much, the genitive is unnecessary. <euzi> "feet" <yos euzi> "one feet (foo...

Re: Crona (redux)

I like the way you constructed a featural alphabet out of existing letters. It was, but not much so, now. I would have to derive some wicked sound changes to make it work. I'm also flattered that you could recognize it is featural. Is it that obvious? Truth be told, it is (intended to be) a concept...

I still would love to read about, if you have something worked out. One example of the differences I was looking for is, that your phonemes do not change their major place of articulation depending on the position. Actually, they can, but not by much. I'll expound more in my post pertaining to it. ...
