I'll have to try not make Vissard too Arpitany, it's very tempting. In Franco-...

Re: Two Ergative Romlangs

Illyrian Ergativity I thought I'd better live up to the title and present some ergativity and showcase the other language; Illyrian. I still have no idea where it will be spoken, but I definitely know how it became ergative! This post deals with the diachronics of Illyrian's ergative system, then l...

Re: Two Ergative Romlangs

Diphthong hardening This is just a small update post to display a feature I'm adding to Vissard: diphthong hardening or "Verschärfung". This is when the second element of a closing diphthong turns into a consonant; it's seen in sporadically in Romansch and Arpitan as well as the germanic ...

Two Ergative Romlangs

Context I’m very bad at finishing romlangs (and very good at starting them), but hopefully this thread will incentivise me to do something. I’ve been working on two romlangs to experiment with different ways of evolving ergativity from a nominative-accusative ancestor; the first (Vissard) is a gall...

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

I think some Iranic and Neo-Aramaic(s) use the ergative only in the past/perfective forms, but I think it would be reasonable for the ergative-marked forms to spread into non-past verbs, especially if previous person-marking on non-past verbs had become very eroded or obscured. Some Neo-Aramaic act...
