Emnian verbs are also triconsonantal lol, see here: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Emnian_verbs

Both Emnian and Eastonian are Northwest Semitic languages, with Emnian being closer to Hebrew and Phoenician (i.e. Canaanite) and Eastonian being closer to Aramaic

Kuerhyedeenistan wrote:Have you made a native syllabary for it, or do you use an existing one? Do you have any samples if it is a conscript?

Nice, minimalistic phonetic inventory. What governs the voicing allophony in /b~p/?
Are there any other allophonic alternations, like /k~g/ and/or /t~d/? Nice touch with the absence of the velar nasal, which fits well with the minimalism and distances it a bit from standard IE-ish inventories. Interesting also to see a full 5-vowel system together with such a minimal consonant inventory. My personal preference world has been to go for a 3-vowel system, or to go all out with a large, somewhat asymmetric one; but to each his own I guess.

No trills, so what sound is your [r] - retroflex, (post-) alveolar approximant or tap, uvular fricative or approximant? Something else entirely?

Any grammar bits? Sample sentences?

approximate meaning ɹ. also there is only 1 conscript. also b can be pronounced either as /b/ or /p/. and alelo WAS a 3 vowel system

.............. i did

meanwhile: allophones is only b/p. Nothing else. i don't have samples

Pull off what? Never heard of those. :P

A very small update.

Very small

Aruzhin & Aurun Sami Pt. 4 - Numbers
These two were supposed to be some minor side-project but the increase in interest in Sami and other Uralic languages pushed it into my list of major conlangs although not at the level of Aurun, Aruzhin, and Kuyonnen. Just somewhere a bit below Lasso-Allican.

Anyway, numbers, the fun stuff. Aruzhin Sami obviously has some influences from Aruzhin even down to the alternating pattern reminiscent of the Aruzhin numbers.

Aruzhin Sami
1 - oktiina
2 - giktta
3 - guolmma
4 - njlla
5 - viehtta
6 - ghtta
7 - ieca
8 - rvcca
9 - auvcca
10 - loga / nlka

Aurun Sami
1 - ktan / ug
2 - guoktta / guok
3 - guolmma / guol
4 - njealla / njeal
5 - viihtta / vit
6 - guhtta / gut
7 - iecca / iec
8 - aktta / ak / guodahttaksa*
9 - oavcca / ov / gendahttaksa*
10 - lo/ log

- The in Aurun Sami is a schwa.
- *These two were the result of Finnic (Aurun) influence.

The two forms of numbers used to have the purpose for counting things considered luundate (of nature) and aailmate (of man) respectively but overtime the distinction between the two was lost among the common speaker and the two forms are used interchangeably. But many traditionalist speakers often use them as their intended purpose.

(Emnitic languages #1 and #2 are Emnian and Eastonian, respectively)

CONSONANT OUTCOMES
INITIAL/MEDIAL FINAL (deletion unless otherwise noted)
א /ʔ/ > (deletion+high tone) (deletion+high tone)
ב /b/ > b /p/ (low) /u/ final (falling tone)
ג /g/ > g /k/ (low) (falling tone)
ד /d/ > d /t/ (low) /i/ final (falling tone)
ה /h/ > (deletion+low tone) (deletion+low tone)
ו /w/ > f /f/ (low) /u/ final
ז /z/ > z /t͡s/ (low)

ש /ʃ/ > sh /ʂ/ (high)
ת /t/ > t /tʰ/ (high) /i/ final (rising tone)

medial h/ʔ creates initial rising/falling tones, as in:
beʔer (well) > bi-r = bǔir

Rising tone: ǎěǐǒǔ
Falling tone:
High tone:
Low tone:

If a word ends in a consonant, a final "" must be added

PERSONAL PRONOUNS

n = I
t = you (singular)
h = he, she, it, they (singular)

n = we
tn = you (plural)
hn = they (plural)

SYNTAX

SVO = Subject, Object, Indirect Object, Direct Object

n ke tu l mo li = I write to the King
n ko tao to n mo li = I corresponded with the King
h ko to l n (wěi) wi gor to = he/she wrote a/the letter to us

prepositional objects can precede subject for emphasis but SVO remains
n mo li n ke tu tu = I correspond with the King (specifically).
l n h ko to wěi wi gor to = he/she wrote a/the letter to us (specifically).

NO CASE MARKING, NO GRAMMATICAL GENDER

VERBAL PARADIGMS

verbs have both a "present stem" and a "past stem" that correspond to the prefix and suffix conjugations of the other emnitic languages
regular present stems have the pattern Ce CiaC (following the final rules)
regular past stems have the pattern Ca CeC (following the final rules)
i.e. -ktob, katab = ke tu, ko to
i.e. -pʕol, paʕal = pe wu, po wai

for intensive, double second syllable and shift tone, i.e.:
ke tu = he writes; ke tu tu = he corresponds
ko to = he wrote; ko tao to = he corresponded

for causative, the syllable ha is added, i.e.:
ke tu = he writes; ha ke tu = he has (something) written
ko to = he wrote; ha ko to = he had (something) written

for reflexive/passive, the syllable wei is added, i.e.:
ke tu = he writes; wei ke tu = he writes to himself
ko to = he wrote; wei ko to = he wrote to himself

TO BE

h y = invariable copula

NEGATION

lio = not

h lio h y mo li = he isn't the king

copula can be omitted in X isn't Y statements, but not in positive X is Y statements
h h y mo li = he is the king
h lio mo li = he isn't the king

Basic prepositions:
wěi = direct object marker
b = in, on
l = to, for
g = like, as
mǐn = from
d = of (classifier/genitive marker)
mo li d k lo = the king's dog
sho li d k lo = three dogs
n = with

Hello everybody!

I am new to conlanging, and I need some help.
I have made a draft for my conlangs' numerals.
Tell me what do you think:

Proto-Cihoic: *dw (1), *hie (2), *dzal (3), *nāghuie (4), *no zaii (5), *koue-kouen (6), *le-you'e (7), *gush (8), *lolln (9), *gg-ch (10).
Classical Cihoic: davuo, hie, tsal, naguve, nosai, gg-n, el-yue, gush, lolan, ggch.
Modern Cihoic: tafo, kie, tsal, nagu'i, sai, gg-/ggn, arhue, kush, roura, gkts

Proto-Guic: *rēų, *kjēu, *nēų, *leū, *sę̄, *djēu, *(h)rōg, *xout/*hout,*ką̄, *gjōrh.
Old Guric: *rēm, *kiēu, *nēn, *leō, *sien, *djīk, *hrūig, *hoūt, *kām, *gōrh.
Old Gundic: *reīm, *kjīu, *nēi, *leū, *sīn, *djēu, *rwōg, *xoūt, *kān, *kōrh.
Gundi: rim, chiu, nei, leu, sin, deu, rog, xod, kan, kor.
Antigundic: rē, kjiu, neu, leo, sjin, die, hureg, hōd, kam, gōr.
Zorb: rem/waħed, cheu/thnein, nei/thlathe, leo/(e)rb'a, seu/xamse, deu/sitte, rog/sb'ah, xod/thmanje, kam/tis'e, qor/'ashre.

Zorb contains two numerical systems: Native Gundi and Arabic.
Both Gundi and Antigundi have Latin prefixes (like bi-, duo-), while Zorb has Turkish prefixes (like iki-, dord-), and some borrowed Japanese words. (şou/ṣou, 'pair' in Zorb, originates from Japanese 双, historically pronounced sou as well).

I apologise if change in pronunciation throughout the eons is inconsistent. I am trying to perfect it.

no rule is as important as the rule of cool its your language and you can do whatever you need to make it appeal to you

If youre making a conlang, I dont care what its like, its your conlang, do what you want with it! Its not my conlang! Im not the one making your conlang!
