The difference between written and spoken Arve seems like Danish …

Also, that sounded fluent! How many tries did it take you for the recordings?

Arve is p. easy because English — I don't think I recorded that more than once or twice. V'eng took a few minutes to get used to, but it's not that hard. Amqoli is impossible to pronounce and I probably recorded it fifty times.

Mkay, so I’m not the only person who has to do multiple recordings to get things right …

By no means. Hell, I have trouble sometimes making recordings in English.

That's really fluid too! I'm pretty impressed, H13.

quoting Matrix:
How do you think these languages of mine sound?

Sumptlondonsk is definitely Dano-Norsk. Your cadences on Nahakhontl and Hurga ker Maja go straight into the giggle-zone and inspire imagery of vanting to suck blad. I might suggest trying to massage that a little, unless you were trying to engineer the trendy accent of a pretentious merchant or something.

As for Nahakhontl, I was using the original iambic stress system (every second syllable in the sentence is stressed). I have since decided that this is only a higher register, while your average person is going to simply have stress on the second syllable of a word. Sometimes it amounts to the same thing, sometimes it doesn't.

My Maja there is horrible, to be honest. I kept mixing up the length allophony. All orthographically monophthongal vowels except /i/ are supposed to lengthen before /r/, regardless of whether or not that vowel is stressed. But length seems to really like stress, because I kept either stressing r-lengthened vowels, or lengthening stressed vowels not before /r/.

Mostly b/c in English length and stress are the same feature.

It's okay. I did the same thing in Lilitika for every dialect except one. That one dialect is a pain in the butt. Word-final unstressed /ɛː/. I feel like an exasperated Midwesterner.

quoting Hallow XIII:

Weeeeeeeeell... technically not, since stress has other phonetic correlates (intensity, pitch), and stressed vowels need not be long if they're in closed syllables. But, it is definitely true that almost all long vowels in English are stressed, and most stressed vowels in open syllables are long. [/douchebag]

So, I once wrote a song in this when I was challenged to produce a silly love song, and I was today reminded that it exists. This possessed me to make a terrible recording and post it here. Have fun.

LYRICS (w/ bad translation):

Bad TibetanEnglish
M dap ng zi gei long i

There was a day I saw a ship
A ship red like a poppy flower
A small, bright, beautiful ship
I wished to sail with it
When I saw it sail away from me

The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river, far away
The red ship sails down the river

The red ship is on my mind
I will not forget it in my life
When it sails down the river in the evening
Its shine can still be seen above
I wish it had never sailed away

The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river, far away
The red ship sails down the river

The red ship has sailed for many a long day
But I still see its light
I will not see it again
The red ship like a spirit
Like the moon it sinks beneath the river

The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river, far away
The red ship sails down the river

The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river
The red ship sails down the river, far away
The red ship sails down the river

I sing wo dai hong mei means both "There was a day I saw a ship" and "The red ship sails down the river"? Interesting polysemy.
But it's a nice little song!
