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/.

I would prefer a dialectal variant. Rhotics go crazy in natlang dialects. Also, maybe have it be a positional allophone in some dialect?
Yeah this is what I'll go with. I'll probably make it an allophone of ɹ̠~ɻ intervocally, probably in a far-eastern dialect.

Re: Yay or Nay?

Another question: Gondolan already has three rhotics, /ɹ̠~ɻ ʁ~ɻ˔ ʀ/. But I've had a desire to add a fricative /ɹ̝/. Should I add this fourth rhotic? Or should I just make it a strange sort of dialectal variant. Also, I know having even two rhotics is extraordinarily rare. In Gondolans daughter langu...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Gondolan has reached 91 pages of grammar, and roughly 560 words!

Also, I'm starting to be able to form basic sentences in Gondolan without referencing the lexicon or grammar. So that's nice.

So in Gondolan I romanise /ʀ/ as (rh), but this can lead to some confusion because /ɹ̠h/ (rh) clusters are permitted. My question is.. What should I romanise /ʀ/ as?

Mayhaps one of these: <rr ŕ ǵ q xr xh ẋ ᶍ> Or maybe the confusion would be very small? Well the romanisation system is meant to be pretty transparent, and /rh/ is a common cluster, so I need a way to distinguish them.
