Re: Questions on Finnish and Estonian Phonology and Orthography [split]

It previously used <ö> for both /ø/ and /ɤ/ (because those sound more or less the same to someone who speaks German as a first language - and perhaps also because some Estonian dialects actually merge them); the Estonian <õ> is a variant of <ö> introduced by Otto Wilhelm Masing in the 19th century....

Re: Questions on Finnish and Estonian Phonology and Orthography [split]

It's definitely a possibility as well that more recent geopolitical factors have also shaped orthography. Nazism in the 1930s followed by the switch to Soviet domination in 1945 may have caused the Baltic states to discard a German-based orthography for a Slavic-based one. How does Estonian borrow P...

Re: False cognates

Um, not really. First of all, Estonian doesn't usually use <c> for /ts/, it uses <ts>. Now, <c> is apparently also pronounced /ts/ before front vowels in the few cases where it does occur, namely foreign proper nouns (so Celsius is something like /tsels:ius/), but this practice was, in fact, probab...

Another unusual example: English "Rat-a-tat" vs Finnish "Hra-ca-ca" (most prominently known in Ievan Polkka) It's an ambiguous example though, as these words don't actually mean anything, they're normally just filler words used for metrical or rhyming purposes in poetic/musical ...

Re: phrase modifying game

Vowel chain shift: ɑ > ɔ <å> when not in diphthongs ɑ: > ɑ ɑω̯ ɑɘ̯ > ɑ: aɨ̯ ai̯ > ɑɨ̯ æi̯ ɨ ɘ > ɪ ɤ > ɪ̆ ω̆; from Slavic influence these then usually drop leaving a palatalization contrast, otherwise becoming /i ɨ/. Consonants before /i e/ palatalize by default. Palatalization is written as <i> befo...
