Interesting. Are interspecies relationships uniformly accepted in the Lehola Galaxy, or are there some cultures where they're frowned upon, or forbidden?
Also, congrats in hitting your milestone! I can't imagine hitting 2000 words, let alone tens of thousands. Your work is really impressive.

Then you can use this, input in XSAMPA or manually, then copy and paste the IPA into your post.

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

There is a bug in XIPA — when converting from X-SAMPA to IPA, J\_ always yields ʄ, regardless of what is appended after. It's not that big of an issue as you can still select the proper symbols manually, and I don't know if XIPA is still being maintained, but it would be great if it was fixed. (apol...

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

So, I read somewhere that Persian has the vowels /æ ɒː e i oː uː/. Why are some of them long and some short? Most languages that have phonemic vowel length tend to have them come in pairs like /a aː i iː u uː/, while in Persian, it seems that back vowels are long, and front ones are short. Are ther...

Re: Abaniscen

There are three 'number' affixes. The longer form is used after consonant-final stems. -(ne)mor : plural. Not obligatory, in fact usually omitted when context allows. Has an iterative meaning for action words. -(ne)hay : nullative. -(ne)nin : general. Can have a habitual meaning for action words, bu...

Is there a consistent connection between nominal and verbal meanings? Like, is there a formula to convert from one to another? (e.g. "instance of [verb]ing" or "to be [noun]") "instance of [verb]ing" is usually correct to assume. "to be [noun]" is covered by ...

Re: Abaniscen

Looks good! I'd been seeing it around in the translations, and was curious. Does the "oblique" serve along the lines of an ergative? It marks agents, but not the subjects of transitive verbs? If most words serve as the same class syntactically ─ celcore tia is "the dog speaks," ...

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

I don't think this looks like 416 years' worth of sound changes... most of them are pretty minuscule. Maybe some contextual changes? With every lexical set remaining undivided and only one merger, it just looks like a slightly weird 2024 English accent.

Nice start! The coalescence of consonants into palatalized and voiceless forms reminds me a bit of Icelandic. Although I am wondering about how ɾh hɾ > tʼ tʼ came to be. Thanks!
