Re: Pelsodian Scratchpad

Ah, nice to see a new, more up-to-date thread on this. Thanks Shimo! I would probably go for /d͡ʒ/ > /ʒ/. What are the results of the sonorant palatalizations, if you've thought about those yet? I believe /nj lj/ have a tendency to become palatal consonants, however the latter might have a strong t...

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

In one of my langs, out of the blue, I've decided it would become intolerant of heterorganic consonant clusters (e.g. all consonant clusters must have the same POA.) To accomplish this, I've decided that palatalization will operate, transforming clusters like [sk] into [ʃc], and an epenthetic schwa ...

78. b 79. b 80. c 81. d Also, any reason it's Brittaniot instead of Britanniot? Worth clarifying if we want it to be that way, imo The French reflex of Britannica is Bretagne, which suggests a geminate, otherwise the t would have lost out. The English name was taken from French and then (incorrectl...

Re: A Beginner's guide to Slavic accentuation

I’m trying to wrap my head around this.

A few questions:
  • Is there a way to predict what word has what accent, if nothing is known about the accent?
  • Are initial “strong” morphemes always have immovable accents?
Otherwise, it looks great Zeko!

Re: Jezik Panoski

Concerning stress and accent: Fitting in with nearby Czech, Slovak, German and Hungarian, Pannonian stress will ultimately develop on the strong first syllable, although it may not be so thorough and words (particularly from Latin) with stress on the penultimate or ultimate can be found. How this wi...

[ls sl → rs sr → ʂ͡ɽ]
[lz zl → rz zr → ʐ͡ɽ]
I feel like [ɽʂ] and [ɽʐ] iss more likely. Faroese retroflexes its consonants similarly, where [ɹ] becomes [ɻ] and retroflexes a following consonant as well.

Re: Jezik Panoski

I've read your Guide, Zeko, however I am quite unsure on what direction I want to take accent and stress in Pannonian. I think innovating vowel length like my neighbors is more than likely though. Now, stress. It seems to me likely that, due to the loss of yers, stress would have a tendency to be re...

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

I'm planning to make a Slavic language of Balkans. What could its name be? Ah, looks like I've inspired people! Hmm, have you tried introducing a Slavic language to the Albanian coast? (Perhaps you could call it Epirote, based off of the name of the Roman province? c.f. Macedonian, and my Pannonian).

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I've been collaborating with Dewrad, the creator of Dravian: probably the best naturalistic romance language ever made (well, to me at least) and very similar to my own project, which takes place in the same region.

Honestly, I didn't think that Pelsodian would affect Pannonian that much outside of a few loanwords. Remember that the former is limited to only a few disparate cities, while the latter is the national language of a state...

Is this South Slavic or another branch? Richards suggests that this type of language may be closer to the South Slavic languages than the West Slavic languages, and that's what I believe too. Nonetheless, it's bound to share some features with Czech and especially Slovak. I was asking because I hav...

That's possible, I thought that the town of Vencsellő might've been too far to be affected by a South Slavic change.

I like all that I see - I'm especially interested in seeing what the results of the second palatalization will be. Fronting of /u/ as an areal feature (although in OTL Slovene and Kajkavian, it is not really that common - but that might be due to the influence of their respective standard languages...
