Re: Analysis Swap: Alál

"Ah!" I say. "Hmmm... But could I say á·utàu Maza ? Or is that wrong?" Maza looks conflicted. "It is not wrong . I am not a kind of lava, maza is lava, so yes, it is wrong in that meaning." They gesture at the cup of water. "Maybe I say, á·sa maza , that is wrong....

Are they all mutually intelligible? Also, are the changes stacking as one moves farther from the center?

Re: New Conlang - Sound Changes

It ... depends what you mean, I suppose. I mean, to be fair, Icelandic has barely changed for almost a thousand years, so it's possible that one branch of the Daas languages would change very little and one would change more. But that's an extreme-ish example, and one needs to take into account the...

Re: New Conlang - Sound Changes

I'd also like to note one thing: if this language is derived via (extensive) sound change from Daas, it cannot be spoken concurrently with Daas. Either all of Daas was affected by these changes, in which case Daas became this language, or part of Daas was affected by these changes, in which case th...

New Conlang - Sound Changes

I've decided to give another artlang a try, this time not oligosynthetic. This is partially because I don't want to deal with the problems with Daas right now, and also due to the fact that one of my conspecies is now confirmed to NOT speak Daas. However, I do want the languages to be related partia...
