On Early Conlang Development (2018-12-31 12:55:52)
:What I usually do is start with the "present-day" forms (for whatever value of present day) and then see where I can introduce cool diachronically motivated stuff.

:Jalvaan would be something spoken in the Ancient Near East. Elamite's long-lost sister perhaps?

Kangshi is, of course, some form of Tibeto-Burman, maybe even Qiangic.

Ntaratu and Nyipa would be spoken in Papua New Guinea. I'm sure there's some way to integrate them into Trans-New Guinea.

:This post uses the orthography rather than IPA because I’m on my phone and X-SAMPA is unreadable
Before /i/, the coronals /t d n l r/ palatalized to /č j ny ly n/. Before /y/, the same happened, except that (in the “standard” dialect, i.e. the one I write in) /ry/ stated unchanged. č later merged into š in all positions, and /y/ dropped after palatals. Clusters of /ny ly/ + /y/ were later restored by the shift of prevocalic /g/ to /y/ after palatals and /i/, which rule remains syn...
