Each unvoiced consonant is shifted one POA backwards?
Why is /ɛI/ considered a diphthong?
Sorry about that, it was a typo. I meant he diphthong ɛi. Also, the unusual stop shift represents a unique development from an earlier stage of the language.

Re: How do you say "bee" and "wasp" in Algic languages?

I'm not sure non-scientists have any way to distinguish bees from wasps. Indeed, bees in a sense ARE wasps - a wasp is any wasp that isn't a bee or an ant or a sawfly. Apparently you can identify wasps by their branched hairs, the bifurcation of the seventh dorsal abdominal plate in females, and by...

Some must have terms for other kinds of bees, or more generic terms for bees.
What about wasps?

How do you say "bee" and "wasp" in Algic languages?

Hello. I recently made my own wordlist, and I included the terms "bee" and "wasp." One group of languages that I am interested in studying are the Algic languages (Algonquian and Yurok). However, I only found the term for "bee" in these languages. Can you name distinct ...

I am interested in studying and attesting various languages across the world, especially Algonquian, Eskimo-Aleut, Oceanic, Ket, Cushitic, and Chadic languages. I currently live in the M...

I learned the French noun "temps," meaning time or weather. I learned this in the French part of the Esperanto book Fundamento de Esperanto. In Esperanto, the corresponding word for time is "tempo."

Munsee vs Unami

Hello. I have been studying the Eastern Algonquian languages recently. One language that I have focused on is the Munsee Delaware language, which interests me as it only has two speakers left (both living in Ontario). But when I researched this language, I noticed something that perplexed me. I have...

Calculating lexical similarities

Hello,
I am interested in calculating lexical similarity between languages and dialects. I wonder what type of mathematics (calculus, algebra, etc.) would be used for these calculations.

Did I put this in the right board? Anyways, thanks for reading this.

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

What are the differences between a fusional and an agglutinative language? Fusional languages encode multiple meanings in grammatical morphemes, -kio could be present tense, imperfect aspect, conditional mood. Agglutinating languages separate these into multiple morphemes. What else characterizes a...

Re: New language discovered recently in Malaysia.

Given close genealogical connection, geographic continuity, ethnic identity, diglossia and mutual intelligibility, why exactly is this considered a 'new language' suddenly, rather than a series of dialectical features that it seems is only used in code-switching any? Particular when the speaker siz...

Re: Wacky theory on Basque.

I do not see a relation to Basque and Etruscan. The Basque language is grouped with Aquitanian and sometimes Iberian in a Vasconic group, and Etruscan is proposed to be part of a Tyrsenian language family along with Lemnian and Rhaetic.
