reconlangmo2020 - part 1
I've been interested in languages, especially constructed languages, for years; but I've yet to actually get down to it and make one. Recently I heard (via Christine Dodrill) about a challenge on r/conlangs, so I figured I may as well give it a try.
resi ([ɹe.'sɨ]) means 'we speak'. The language will be pretty much
entirely a priori, though I'll probably
steal borrow interesting features from
other languages. I'm mostly creating it for personal use, though it'll definitely
find its way into other projects sooner or later.
Since the likely speakers are catlike, the sound system is shifted slightly back towards the throat vs English, and it completely lacks any bilabial sounds. I'll also be creating counting and writing systems for it.
Like I mentioned above, I'm creating resi as a personal language for writing notes, journals, art, etc; but mostly just as a fun project, and to get a better understanding of linguistics for future conlangs and related projects.
