3sg - Fem [i]t'one[/i]
In this system, one 3rd person pronoun is specifically marked as feminine and used for f...

In bringing up the [i]gaas[/i] thing, I've already implicitly suggested that there be some kinds of light verbs that modify a non-finite semantically meaningful verb (in this case, some light verb meaning "do" whose phonetic shape is something like [i]as[/i]). I've also implicitly introduced the affix [i]-d[/i] as a 3rd person object agreement marker on the verb, and I've added it to the non-finite verb rather than the finite one. (Maybe this system grew out of s...

:[quote Rhetorica, Kelatetía: Dis, Major Belt 1]Woah, hold up. Kabyle has two approximants and two trills, not just a [spoiler]weeby[/spoiler] tap. It's very out-of-place to have such an undiverse PoA given how many series of plosives and fricatives there are.
And now a rant about transliteration schemes.
As far as I can tell from their Wikipedia recordings, [ʕ] is barely audible, and contrast between [ħ] and [h] is ridiculously hard to hear. If you want those sounds, make them ...

:[quote Serafín, 農, Canada]Suggested stress pattern: Word-initial, or near the beginning of the word (maybe there's derivational prefixes that never take stress?).
[quote con quesa, Layperson, California]For negation, why not copy English on this? A negative auxiliary verb analogous to "don't" transparently formed from an older negative particle, used in some TAM classes, with that same negative particle (let's say its [i]ga[/i] to be concrete) used for negation in other TAM contexts?

ARE WE DOING A GROUPLEARN? (2016-06-28 15:04:47)
I'd vote for Quechua, just because it seems like the langauge that would be easiest to find resources on, and it's as interesting to me as any of the others.
