Re: CBB Conlang Relay XV - A NEW BEGINNING

Sorry for working late -- this is my first-ever conlang relay and I'm having some trouble. No worries! Of course, as it's your first relay you can take some more freedom than the others. Just FYI, because you might not be aware of it yet: You are indeed allowed to ask questions about the torch to V...

Re: A fable I wrote

:con: Vissard 11.0 I decided to attempt this as a classical Vissard poem in anapestic tetrameter. The language has of course changed considerably since I last posted anything about it, but I've fooled myself into believing it's coming close to a final incarnation. I think it works relatively well as...

Re: Help With Sound Changes

- It might be nice to turn [ŋ] and [ɴ] from allophones of /n/ into true phonemes. I cannot pronounce [ɴ] . I cannot imagine both [ŋ] and [ɴ] co-occurring in the same phoneme inventory together except as allophones of each other. I assume it’s attested in some natlang; is it? Does anyone have some e...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

Is it like a Christmas bonfire? In Guatemala they burn old trash on Christmas, and call it la quema del diablo ; is it related to that? Interesting guess, but wrong. It's a more wide-spread tradition, although apparently it doesn't exist in the US. Is this tradition present in the UK? [tick]
