Hi rainbowcult, just a reminder that in the House Rules we ask that users not post things they know will offend others. This extends to jokes.
Oh, sorry

Tronun - Idiot. Based off trump. Additionally in that map are tronen, to talk unintelligently, and tren, to be incorrect. Also in that map is strat, an stupid or rude person, which is related to both Trump (more distantly) and "straight." If you're about to be offended over that, don't. It...

Re: Is there a way to display how strongly a consonant is pronounced in IPA?

An example of this would be the French word "comprendre," meaning understand. The IPA for this (as retrieved from a website, I'm not sure how accurate it is) is "kɔ̃pʁɑ̃dʁ," however when I listened to an audio of the IPA reading the final ʁ was very light. I am uncertain on how ...

Re: Is there a way to display how strongly a consonant is pronounced in IPA?

Perhaps you could explain what you mean by "lightly"? Well I'm not the best at explaining things, but if you were to say it quieter, I guess? A consonant that is barely able to be heard but still there. I wonder whether you may be mistaken in your analysis of what you're hearing? To the b...

Is there a way to display how strongly a consonant is pronounced in IPA?

I'm going to be the most recent 3 posts in beginners corner, lucky me, but in my most recent conlang the final consonant is pronounced extremely lightly unless there's a vowel in front of it, almost like French but with at least something there. How would I use IPA to express that?

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Just a random thought: I mainly use a Mac when doing conlang stuff because it's so easy to type accented characters on a Mac (as simple as holding down "e" and then pressing "5" to get an e with a macron). Because Lihmelinyan accents every stressed vowel and uses macrons for lon...

The IPA didn't preserve the new paragraph, and I had to change the word order a lot to fit the grammar, but all in all it turned out pretty well I think.

Re: Weird Dream Thread

When I was a younger kid, I think about 11 or so (I'm currently 14), there was this one dream that I've mostly forgotten. I was at a huge fair at my school. It was much bigger than my actual school's grounds, probably spanning a square mile or so. I was running around with my friend, Kathleen, when ...

How necessary are noun cases?

This is going to sound really ignorant, but isn't still understandable without them? English doesn't seem to have a lot of examples to give, but in the sentence "I hug him" why is it that important to say 'him' instead of 'he'? Just saying "I hug he" sounds grammatically incorrec...
