Is Linguistics and Natlangs the correct place to post about an alternate time-line conscript for a natlang?
This thread may be kind of what you're looking for?

If you want to make your own thread, though, then yeah, I'd say that this is the right section of the board.

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Yes, they are. Abahts (masculine, first declension) is best translated as “minister” usually of a higher rank. For instance, members of parliament use that as do head of government departments/ministries, abahc (neuter, first declension). A lower ranking government official and the word for civil s...

Did the first word begin with c- /k/ in Classical Latin?

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

How can a plain voiced vs. implosive contrast develop? [p b] > [b ɓ] maybe? I want to keep the unvoiced series, so the plain voiced series fuses with it. Though the proto-lang has unvoiced nasals, so would /m̥ p b/> /p b ɓ/> /p p˩ ɓ/ work? That seems possible to me. You could consider having some n...

Very impressed by all the creativity since my 66th birthday (2/6/18) and maybe b4 as well!
I just realized this means your sixtieth birthday was the day my laptop was stolen. [O.O]

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

How would /tθ/ naturally form in a language, and would it be feasible not to have /θ/ in the same phonology? [tʰ] > [t͡θ], for instance. I'd think it would be alright to have only one of /t͡θ θ/ in a language's inventory, since those sounds are so rare cross-linguistically. I think there are some l...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Is the whole word "embassy"? Yes, well done! Awesome, I'll try to post a new word as soon as possible. The homophone pairs are: framažabahchus “embassy” framažabahtshus “ambassador’s residence” framažabahc “foreign ministry” framažabahts “ambassador” Cool! Are "ambassador" and "ambassador's residen...

Is the second reconstructed phoneme in the Proto-Germanic ancestor of -abahc- a *b?
The b is a b in PG but the b is not the second phoneme in the PG word.
Was the second phoneme a consonant?
Yes.
Was it a sonorant?
