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

Is there any chance that the Slavic patronymics in -ov, etc are a direct loan of Greek masculine genitive -ou, which is also a patronymic? I couldnt find info on the etymology of the Russian sufx paradigm. I know rhat the gk is from pie. It's not but I'm sure they're related as the Russian patronym...

Re: Ởnh·Vú- Chamic Language

Must/Have To The English terms must and have to are typically translated as 咍 (Xãm) and 吵 (Yãt) which translate literally as good and bad respectively. Unlike in English, the 3rd person generic form is always used instead of any use of the 2nd person in these expressions. 咍 + Positive Verb: Must/Ha...

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

So, my question is this: How did the phonemic distinction between two rhotic consonants found in many Iberian Romance languages arise? Well it kind of exists in Italian as well as [r] is more often than not pronounced as /ɾ/ while [rː] remains pronounced as /rː/. Iberian languages originally contra...

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

Also, I always saw the actual pronunciation of /ə/ being described as "like the eu in heure (or other words with /œ/) " so I used /œ/. Good point. Worth noting that /œ ø ə/ are often merged in Modern French. I don't think I've ever heard the letter e not pronounced as /ø/ That makes sense. I just w...

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

Maybe a Hangul-like system could work as well? Every syllable would have its own character but you only need to create 96 pieces that can be combined. Yeah i'll do that, but i'll make a syllabary for an older version of the language. You could also do something similar to Canada's syllabary or ten-...

C)(C)(C)(C)(V)(C), though anything beyond (C)(C)(V(C) is very rare. CV(C) and CCV are the most common. I might change it to a (C)V(C) order though, i don't think i like the huge syllables that are possible.
If you change it to (C)V(C) a syllabary would definitely be a great idea for it!

What type of script would work best for my conlang, Abʘa? It has 96 phonemes, 10 vowels and 86 consonants. I would rather not use a logography.
What syllable structure does it have? If it's relatively simple, I think a syllabary could be interesting to use

Again, I don't know for certain the answer to All4En's question, but my guess would be that they simply aren't. Thanks for your answer! I'm curious how people in China learn vulgar characters though.

I wouldn't know about Chinese at all and I don't know about Japanese schooling, but aren't most of these words written in kana in Japanese anyway?
