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

This question has been bothering me for a while. Are there any languages which differentiate /t͡ʃ/ and /t͡ɕ/ (and similarly for /d͡ʒ/ and /d͡ʑ/?) Polish has /t͡s d͡z s z/ vs. /t͡ʂ d͡ʐ ʂ ʐ/ vs. /t͡ɕ d͡ʑ ɕ ʑ/, unless you're asking about specifically /t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ vs. /t͡ɕ d͡ʑ/. Yes, I mean a difference b...

Re: Yay or Nay?

I know that the first set, with t → ∅, is the tried and true. My worry with option 2 is that an intervocalic t → θ → s doesn't seem to have any natlang precedent I can find. That worries me for some reason. It makes me think my logic is off. Still, it's tempting to not throw out so many consonants....

Re: Yay or Nay?

In respect of morphosyntax...I guess I need to try an open pronominal system based on social relationship and something like, as in Japanese, Korean and Southeast Asian languages... If you're only considering this because you feel like you need to, then I'd recommend not doing it. But if you genuin...

Re: British Romance Language Collablang

29: d (before front vowels, /k g t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ <qu gu c g>) Isn't that the same as option b? Hmm, I guess. Given that the question specifically asks about how to write /k g t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ before front vowels, though, I assumed that option b was proposing, for example, /ki gi t͡ʃi d͡ʒi/ <ci~qui gi~gui chi~ci j...

Like I said in the other thread, I quite like the look of this language! Here's the conjugation for regular verbs ending in -ar: Could you potentially detail the effects of the mutations, especially the ways in which they differ from the mutations in Irish? What is the conjugation of "ar" like? u/un...

I just meant that up until now, the ergative case only existed in declension tables and I had not actually used it in any sentences (i.e. hadn't come up with any neuter nouns being used as subjects of transitive verbs).
Ah, got it! Thanks for the explanation.

Re: Maran, a small greeklang with portuguese and english influences

Maran is an a priori language inspired by ancient greek. Oh, sorry, my mistake! I misunderstood the meaning of "Greeklang". I went with n before unvoiced phonemes and m before voiced phonemes. Dunno if that makes sense. Ah, I only asked because I'm pretty sure Ancient Greek allowed τμ- but not τν-....

tott -> thot -> sot

soss -> hos -> os

soss -> ross
Aren't the changes just intervocalic, though?
