A note: The proto-conlang is the same as the last one, but the daughter languages aren't.

The second conlang reconstruction challenge: L1 and L2 are closely related, and so are L4 and L5. L1: "Tera pos uríat?" Kera ede paga. "PAGAD. URELI." Kera av kablepri kar. "Gaaaaaaa..." L2: "Po tera uri a?" Kera paga ede. "PAGADA. URELI." Kera av ka...

Re: Can you try to reconstruct a proto-conlang?

That was fun, but here's the original conlang. I'm not that good at doing sound changes yet, but I hope to improve. Hopefully next time, I'll remember to put surrounding vowels into consideration! :P Plysiy Uhri Ahca Lo hampu akelan Cure Pako-op plysiyle ahten pləziə uχʀ̥i axtsa lo xambu agelan tsuʀ...

Re: Can you try to reconstruct a proto-conlang?

So you pointed out Lang 4's g in "paga." It's pronounced [paga], but the orthography should say "paka." I overlooked that, sorry. Transcriptions will come later when I can more easily copy and paste IPA characters.

Can you try to reconstruct a proto-conlang?

So I wrote a passage in a conlang, then added different sound changes to it to see if you could reconstruct the original conlang. Here goes (Note: The first two languages are more similar than any others): Language 1: Plazia Uri Aasa Lo hambu agelan Suge Opago plaziale aaten Language 2: Playa Uri At...

Re: What-If 0071: "Stirring Tea"

Since the tea doesn't do anything dramatic like rise into the air or emit light, the energy must be turning to heat.


If the tea does do something dramatic like rise into the air or emit light, then it is not tea, and you should probably not drink it.
