Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've done more work on Gondolan, particularly on dialects and registers. The reference grammar is now 196 pages (and keep in mind lexicon is stored in a dif document), and it's been cleaned up so it's formatted alright. I'm really proud that I've finally managed to get a conlang to a decently develo...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

In the past few days, I've done a lot with Gondolan. All kinds of clauses and stuff, derivational morphology, and I've fixed a lot of issues that apparently have existed for some time without being noticed. That said, Gondolans' reference grammar now has 171 pages!

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII - ONGOING (signups remain open)

I finished decoding the text a while ago, but while translating it into Gondolan I hit a few issues with clause formations. I spent a lot of time fixing that lol.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been redoing Gondolans noun inflectional patterns, specifically incorporating the animacy hierarchy into these patterns. I also redid all the case ending, some syntax stuff, and I've been thinking about creating some true adjectives. I've been feeling really good about my conlanging in general ...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been working on Gondolan some more, and at some point I realised how strange Gondolans word order is. Essentially, it is heavily based off of Gondolans animacy hierarchy. The "higher" animacy noun is always placed before the "lower" animacy noun. The verbs placement determines the type of claus...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay XII

Hey I'd like to participate with my main conlang, Gondolan. I've got nothing to do for the next few weeks so this'll be fun.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I've been doing a lot of reformatting of Gondolans reference grammar, along with re-analyzing how cases work. Gondolans case system is now far, far more productive than it was. Verbs conjugations have also been revamped. I also need to entirely reformat the dictionary, I've been using google docs an...

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

What exactly do you mean by that? A uvular trill with an alveolar lateral release? A uvular trill with a velar lateral release? As for a uvular lateral release, people have argued that uvular laterals are impossible. Anyway, I don't think any of these is attested in any natlang I know of. The close...

Re: Gondolan (Gändölansch)

Gondolans orthography has gone through a bit of a reform, so I edited my initial post to represent that. Also I'm working on a post about noun inflection, and it should be up soon. My posts here will be pretty sporadic and scatter-brained, and I'll mostly just talk about what's on my mind at the time.

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

Is a uvular later trill attested in any natlangs? I have it contrasting with a "typical" uvular trill and a palatalized version in one of my conlangs, thus yielding /ʀ ʀʲ ʀˡ/.
