Unnamed Phonology

Postby dtp883 » Sun 17 May 2009 11:21 pm

Nasals: /m/ /n/
Plosive: /ʔ/
Fricatives: /f/ /v/ /s/ /z/ /θ/ /ð/ /ʃ/ /ʒ/ /h/
Approximates: /j/ /w/ /ʍ/
Trill: /r/
Lateral: /l/

Vowels: /ə/ /æ/ /ɑ/ /e/ /o/ /i/ /y/ /ɪ/ /u/
Diphthongs: /ɑi/ /oi/ /ui/

Note: When a word is written with a repeated vowel, example hwoo /ʍoʔo/ "tooth" a glottal stop is inserted between the vowel and it is pronounced twice. This is the only natural stop.

allophony? phonotatics? prosody?

And this is very unnatural. there is no language with /?/ as its only plosive.

Haven't gotten there yet it's just a very basic phonology for now.

Yes it is unnatural, that's why I posted it in the constructed languages forum... ;)

I decided to throw out bolded sections.

Well of I know that it is technically not natural, remember I been conlanging for almost 5 years now. But usually it should be avoid to make some to unnatural

/p t k/, and most likely /b d g/ too. /p t k/ are one of those linguistic universals, and your language has a voicing distinction in fricatives, so I assume that it would also have that in its plosives.

Plosive: /ʔ/
Fricatives: /f/ /v/ /s/ /z/ /θ/ /ð/ /ʃ/ /ʒ/ /h/

Oh yeah, this is the second conlang I've seen with a phonology like this. It always brings a grin to my face. Image

I dropped the /ʔ/.

A laughing grin, or a mocking grin?

A laughing one. The other conlang I saw with a similar consonants had almost twice that number of fricatives though.

Well I can't pronounce the /ɣ/ in rapid speech so I decided against it and had to leave out the /x/. I plan to have /ç/ as an allophone. And I couldn't have an affricatives because that would include stops.
