I would keep /ʃ/ word finally.Omzinesý wrote: ↑25 Nov 2019 13:45This is an idea of a Romlang. Usually they are very boring so to take those ideas further I should find up much more, but this a notepad.
s => ʃ
k [+front] => s
g [+ front] => ʒ => z
j => ʒ => z
I'm still considering what will happen with /s/ in coda positions. Maybe it is /ʃ/ which sounds very German, or maybe it deletes with compensatory lengthening.
So there is a three-sibilant system [s, z, ʃ] which is written <c/ç, z, s> respectively.
<s> for /ʃ/ gives a Hungarian taste.
Because of assimilation and final devoicing, /s/ and /z/ merge in the coda position, so <ç> does not have to appear there and <z> is always used.
Stress always falls on the first syllable, which can be of Germanic influence. So verbs can lose the theme vowel of the infinitives "cantre" for 'to sing'.
And like Hungarian I'd write these phonemes <sz z s> respectively.
God damn it, you are just full of good ideas aren't you?
We will see if my project gets so far that we can compare.
