Re: What did you accomplish today?

Picking up the mess that is my conlang after a few months hiatus. Put all my lexicon into a Dictionary made in LaTex, surprisingly easy, once you know how to do it that is. https://i.imgur.com/nE85JT3.png I would really suggest you fiddle with those paragraphs a bit. Making the par-indent go away w...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

So I am thinking the languages on the east got the bilabial voiced plosive from strengthening between vowels and then the first vowel disappears, uhhh I don't think me using a vague word like "central" helped me at all.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Here was my first attempt:

I also tried comparing components such as stress and having something to do with nasality in the coda, but I didn't find too much information.
/tiˈʑen/ + /aˈpoːq/ seems to be a central component to the reconstruction.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

The one thing I'd be interested in seeing is how *wr become *s and *d (everything else more or less makes sense, I think, although I'm surprised to see a final *k' become *g so readily in multiple branches). Oh, and just for clarification, who's being declared the winner? The proto form was /reʍbn̩...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Sangi is the closest. Qued's latest guess has gotten better. I'm inclined to give it to Sangi, but I did say I had a phonology. Vowels: /i, iː/ /e, eː, o, oː/ /a, aː/ Consonants: /p, t k/ /b, d, g/ /p', t', k'/ /m, n/ /w, l, r/ /s, z, h/ Syllables: (C(C))X(C) X is a vowel or a syllabic /n̩/ or /l̩/

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Clue 1 of 4:
Spoiler:
The languages presented have no stress, much like French.
Clue 2 of 4:
Spoiler:
You happen upon the village where they use the word /wḁb̥ɘ̃gog/. a cranky senior citizen can be heard using the word /wḁhb̥ɘ̃gog/ instead of /wḁb̥ɘ̃gog/.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Crey, your A group is spot on, for the B group however it is a bit off, I feel you have jumped the gun a bit by making those supergroups (A and B) already. The internal groupings for B2 make sense but they are not perfect. Your first guess at the proto word is missing some phonetic components (namel...

Done, with some last minute changes. Good luck! This is my first try at something like this.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Sangi is almost 100% on with the grouping. Just switch one word in group 8 with one in group 4, and you should be there. Proto-word wise, no one has really gotten any much better. So I'll give reconstructed phonology: /m n ŋ/ /p t k q b d g ʔ/ /r s j w/ /a ɛ e i u ɔ o/ /aː uː/ /aːɪ̯ aːʊ̯ uːɪ̯/ The ...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I'll post something more expansive tomorrow, but right now I'm stuck at connecting the /ŋail/ branch with anything else.

Guess:
Spoiler:
Is it /qaːɪdew/? A coda /w/ would explain coda /l, ŋ,/ and the rounded second vowel of group 8 and 7.

I may feel up to putting more time into it over the weekend, but it looks like */kayzen/ - */kayðen/ to me right now.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

This is what I got (I stole crey's r > ʒ /g_ thing [:P] ). I'm kind of pleased with it, but I know there's some weird stuff to it. Oh, and I wouldn't mind having the order listed, just hoping the next challenge has a map. ŋ̊ratuusŋ PROTO 13: (*)ŋ̊rætuusŋ (*)ŋrætuun > (*)grætyn > (*)græʔyn > (13)græh...

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

So, There's something I might wanna add into my language but once again I'm going to ask the more educated crowd about it before I go and screw it up: Its easier to give you an English example, so here, "He punched him" so my question is this. have there been languages that mark the two pronouns he...

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

Noob question, but what is the grammatical construction in: "your running to the store was helpful" and "my going home is one of a journey"? ...I think it is dative case.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Number 2 confused me with it's [x] so I just guessed there was another syllable in the protoform and then some weird lenition happened. Yes, I don't have any real experience with diacronics and I'm impressed with the effort that people have put into the thread. I tried creating some groups: First gr...
