Spoiler:
Overall word shape is correct, discounting segment length. One segment is perfect, two are the correct sound but not the correct secondary details, and one is close but not correct. There is no /tː/ in the protoform.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I have noticed several errors, but they don't make it any harder to reconstruct; all that changes is that some of the forms aren't accurate to the actual languages. But it's fine.

Huh? Doesn't t͡ʃ → s usually happen by t͡ʃ → ʃ → s? How would that co-occur with s → ʃ?
Or would this be by t͡ʃ → t͡s → s? I still wouldn't buy t͡ʃ → t͡s but s → ʃ.

In fact, s → ʃ ubiquitously feels weird. But is that a Hungarian thing?

Re: The Great Exposition of Ruykkarraber

FWIW, I also encourage people to avoid using "transitive" and "intransitive" when they simply mean "bivalent" and "univalent" or "dyadic" and "monadic". [...] Thank you. Would there also be an alternative for "(de)transitivize"?

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

Does anyone have any advice about how to make a reference grammar of a conlang in the style of a real reference grammar? (Aside from reading a lot of real reference grammars.) How should it be organized? What should it include?

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

I don't think anything and everything is the correct answer. I know of no language that uses only word order to distinguish person, number, tense, aspect, modality, or evidentiality. But I might be wrong of course. I can't name any, but I'd be surprised if there are no languages that at least secon...

LinguoFranco wrote: 29 Mar 2024 17:29 What do you think of this vowel harmony system? Is it plausible.

It's /a e i ɤ o ɯ u/

/o u/ are rounded

/ɤ ɯ/ are unrounded

/a e i/ are neutral
I think it works. Just say that all back vowels in a word must agree in rounding.

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

If a Culture counts using Base-20, and they only have words up to 20^2 (400), and they encounter a Base-10 culture, would it be realistic for them to borrow the word for 1,000 to mean 20^3 (8,000)? Or is it more likely they would they switch to base-10 for numbers over 1000? Depending on the techno...
