Re: Ai 12.0 (still a Lakes Plain language)

Phonology I've finally pretty much settled on Ai phonology. It's fairly similar to other (natlang) Lakes Plain languages but with a few extra shifts to add some spice. The tone system is my own but it's vaguely similar to that of Abawiri or the possibly-related Skou languages. Ai has five consonant...

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

I don't think it's actually all that common for polysynthetic languages to have noun classes; they're characteristic of dependent-marking languages, while polysynthetic languages tend to be strongly head-marking. But as Bininj-gun-Wok shows, it's still possible. But Bantu languages have noun classe...

I don't remember if we have discussed this before. Which languages have both incorporation and noun classes / genders? How do they interact?

Re: Project Stubby-Holder

Some slight modifications: Stubby gets an archiphoneme Q which can appear in C₂ or C₃ position. It can follow any coda, but it can only precede stops, so we get the following geminates: pp kk tt thth tyty dnh dn dny dlh rr *yy is missing; it became tyty .

In what kind of vowel inventories does /ʉ/ (close central rounded vowel) appear? Wikipedia has a very short list. Generally it functions as part of an F2-intermediate series between "front unrounded" and "back rounded", so it's roughly equivalent to /ɨ/, /y/ or /ɯ/. Take Natügu ...

Re: Too many pronouns?

At a glance, Hungarian has at least 144 personal pronouns (and another 119 reflexive and reciprocal pronouns) so 66 is by no means a stretch. However, much of the case marking is regular in Hungarian.
