Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

Some stuff on syntax, starting with particles. Asta is fairly non-configurational, but there is a preference for verb-initial order, and there are a number of particles which find themselves in clause-initial position. Some of these we have encountered already, such as pa‘ the sentential negative, a...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

/t k ʔ/ /t͡ɬ’ t͡ʃ’ k’ q’/ /ɬ ʃ χ h/ /m~w n j/ /mˀ~wˀ nˀ jˀ/ /i u/ /a/ Vowels may be long or short, and long vowels may have either a rising or a falling tone. Syllable structure is CV(C), where coda C is restricted to /t k ɬ ʃ χ n/. Some affixes glottalise a preceding consonant. This procedes in the...

Re: Frislander's IE-lang scratchpad

OK, some things on verbs, but before I do, one final sound change: I will now permit nasal vowels to merge with glides in the same manner as the non-nasal *a vowels, producing nasalised mid vowels. These will be fairly marginal, however they are relevant for today's discussion as they appear in the ...

Re: CBB Conlang Relay X

Ring 2 is a paragon of concision. It has about the same number of sentences as the original (maybe even the same number; the original's punctuation gets dodgy toward the end), but has fewer than half the words. Cut the fat! Kill your darlings! Yeah that was pretty much my fault. I struggled a bit t...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Well, I've finally come back round to Frislandian, and this time I'm bursting with ideas for the phonology, so I'm gonna end up making a whole dialect cluster, so I'm gonna have to write a pan-dialectal grammar (fun fun fun!), with some consideration for the reconstruction of Proto-Frislandian (brea...

Re: The great Asta thread - not soon enough

OK, some notes on distribution and frequency. In terms of distribution, there are some rather strict restrictions, plus some fairly strong tendencies in the language. The most notable ones are that, mainly as a result of the prevalences of noun and person marking prefixes, the set of permissible wor...
