Re: Help detect language?

Okay, I tried Google's tool, and it didn't detect anything, though that might just be due to the low image quality. Meanwhile, I'm more and more convinced that that is in fact lsd's language, even though that's not possible.

Re: Help detect language?

Might want to move this to a different forum.

I don't immediately recognize the symbols ─ though they remind me of lsd's language! I think Google has a tool that can detect a language in an image.

Re: Arayaz's thread so that she doesn't flood the forum

zAhul Phonology I had a limited list of sound changes from PMZ to Makihip ─ about six, though one of them was pretty big and could count as multiple. That's a span of maybe 700-800 years for a conservative language, whereas I want zAhul to be quite innovative. Perhaps I could fit nine or even ten s...

Re: Arayaz's thread so that she doesn't flood the forum

Morphology of Proto-Makihip-zAhul I have the pronominal prefixes of Makihip defined, and just following them to the proto is: sg/pl 1 * y(a)- /* m(a)- 2 * d(a)- /* kl(e)- 3 * l(a)- /* x(o)- Again, Makihip is quite conservative. I'll explain that in the setting. The passive prefix, k(o)- , hasn't ch...

Re: Arayaz's thread so that she doesn't flood the forum

Makihip Morphophonological Alternations As a result of the things I outlined in the last post, a few alternations will arise in the language. Most notable is the fact that certain words will just be immune to the tense alternations due to previously having voiced stops. I'll have to find an alterna...

Re: Arayaz's thread so that she doesn't flood the forum

Proto-Makihip-zAhul I was looking through my older posts here to try to get an idea of zAhul's environment, since I want to elaborate on my previous post ( Swahili x Romanian x Bats: Non-Concatenative Pluralization ) for zAhul. I had decided that the gemination aspect of the pluralization would be ...

Re: Whale Linguistics

Short version: dolphins appear to introduce themselves by saying their own name when they meet other dolphins. It could be a possible way to say 'Hello' in a human culture, too. 'Hi, I'm Omzinesý!', though I had met the person zillion times and they well knew who I am. Oooh, what if after this deve...

Re: Arayaz's thread so that she doesn't flood the forum

Swahili x Romanian x Bats: Non-Concatenative Pluralization The idea here is that, like Swahili, there is a range of different noun classes, expressed with prefixes that change in the plural. However, as in, say, Romanian and Bats, there is not a direct correspondence between the singular classes an...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I'm not great with sound changes, but this still seems like a fun game. My first thought is: atte˥ After reading some suggestions/hints, perhaps something like adte˥l is more likely? conlang-creature: The former guess is closer, so all of the following is advice for it. The final vowel is not corre...
