Re: Proto-Kalian

Just a heads-up. [] is used for phones; // is used for phonemes, that is the underlying sound. So I think that would be: * [ð] is an allophone of /θ/. Apropos, what triggers this sound change? If it's realized as such when intervocalic, you'd expect for example ħ > ʕ in the same environment. Otherwi...

Re: American English Derived Collablang!

1. I think it would be the best to cliticize some that end in obstruents, so <of> and <at> among those listed, unless they don't anymore due to sound changes. They could be realized as [v] and [t] and assimilate in voicing to any obstruent that starts the next word. Prepositions that end in vowel co...

Re: Speedlang VIII (May 4, 5, 6)

Well, I said I was going to even if only jokingly to loglorn, and I guess the last time when I participated was technically lucrative for me, so I'll try to do this one too.

Re: Number Systems, and number derivation

I agree with Iyionaku on most accounts. "Pubic hair" seems too taboo and too abstract. I would probably go for "phalanx" or "joint" (wrist, elbow and shoulder). I think you could get 12, 17, 18 or nineteen from the vertebrae below the neck and seven from those in the neck. 16 is easy, that's the num...

Re: American English Derived Collablang!

I meant that my choices have literally been "BAD". It's self-deprecating humor. I am happy with the thread, but would like to see the fruits of our choices so far, as well as getting into the messy grammar like Nachtuil. I see no contradiction here.

And so it has come to be. My account is turning three years old today. Homestuck is turning nine years old today. I have still not picked it up again. The old website doesn't even host it anymore since the last few days. It has been moved to a new one where it can be read without flash and other thi...

Re: What do you recommend? What to do?

To begin with, the Swadesh list is popular to get that base vocabulary needed. It's also traditional for conlangers to translate the Tower of Babel from the Old Testament as well as the first article of the UDHR. But really, I think the most important thing is whether it feels like every possible co...
