Coming Attraction: Sound Changes (2020-02-21 11:45:58)
:The mind boggles. A welcome development.
As you may have noticed in the past six years, I have my fingers in too many pies to be consistently useful but on the bright side I know the Cadre version 151218 codebase basically by heart now, so if you have a source code repository anywhere...

Featured Articles (Nominations, etc.) (2020-02-15 09:42:48)
:We do have suggestions still outstanding from last time, but ideally I'd want to feature something from somebody who could be described as an active user. Which disqualifies a lot of suggestions! It does allow for featuring [#228887|your article on face-painting], though, which was also floated last time.
Whimemsz' story is also still a possibility, as is some of bloodbath's money.

:You'll have to upload it somewhere and then link it here. Annie does have some image hosting powers in universes that you can use for this purpose if you wish.

Division of Vowels (2019-06-20 12:52:18)
:I haven't done any quantitative studies on it, but I imagine such a situation would indeed be quite rare. It depends, somewhat, on the phonological context of your language. Is hiatus avoidance something that there are synchronic phonological rules for? As in, do underlying sequences of vowels occur, which are then resolved somehow, or do they just happen to not occur for whatever reason? It could be, for instance, that your language lost some consonant specifically between two <a>, such a...

Division of Vowels (2019-06-18 04:06:33)
:That depends on what you mean by "double 'a' vowel". The way you transcribe it, it looks like you have a syllable boundary there, which means that unless you have an intervening glottal stop you'd be violating your own language's hiatus rule. If you mean something else, I highly recommend you take a look at [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet|this convenient transcription method] to make it more clear.

Division of Vowels (2019-06-15 03:57:02)
:Yes, this is reasonably common. Luganda, for instance, does not allow two vowels in sequence; where such sequences would occur, it lengthens the second vowel and either deletes the first or converts it into a semivowel if the first vowel is high.
For a more direct correspondence to your strategy, some dialects of English insert /r/ between consecutive vowels.

Reference Wiki Discussion/Collaboration Thread (2019-05-26 08:45:56)
I am terribly sorry for this intrusion into our collective tomb, but I've started working on a short introduction to discourse pragmatics ând structure for conlangers, on the grounds of... Well, as far as I can tell, there isn't even such a thing for academic linguists, so I figured I might as well write at least a small sketch for personal reference.
I will put it in the Annie reference as a primary online access point, so you are all cordi...

:Okay, there is now a convenient move button for languages and families. Individual articles probably won't benefit too much from this because they can be child pages of, well, basically everything, so for the time being I haven't added this feature to those.
I also fixed the table mode rendering for Universe Lists, so if you have any of those, they should finally show up on your universe page. They're still interestingly broken in other ways, though.
