If anyone has seen my last thread, they know what I'm up to and why I ask. If you haven't, I am making a language
So, as stated in my last thread, I have read Mark and Pablo's sites a lot now, and I've already created much of my language, but Syllable structure is still foggy to me. I know that one can create their own phonological constraints, but I've having problems understanding the syllable structure code (or whatever it is called xD). Like so: " © (V) © © V (V) © ©". (random example)
Does this basic building block restrict words from ever forming the opposite of what you build? What does the C/V (Consonant and Vowel) mean when out of the "()"? The minimal C/V, right?
What I mean is what if I have "© (V) © © V (V) © ©" for my Syllable Structure. Would that mean each and every word had to start with a consonant (or vice-versa) and that it was -- depending on the Syllable Structure you created -- impossible to do otherwise? For example, using the above Syllable structure "© (V) © © V (V) © ©", would the following be impossible to create?
I don't think it does mean the words are hard-pressed to the SS code, but I'm not sure and Wiki... >.>
I have read up on it quite a few times and have had some things explained to me, but I was wondering if anyone could help me with my last few questions?
I know about Subordinators, demonstratives, postpositions and prepositions. I know where they are placed, but I was wondering what about articles? Or anything else the Wikipedia page doesn't mention? When making the sentence in SOV order, where do you place the "parts" it doesn't mention in the Wikia? Like Articles?
PhilĂˇmayayapi (I thank you all)!
I have completely reamped my language and its SO, SO much better. I understand so many new things that has improved my skills by a lot, but there are still some things that escape me...
If you see a black triangle with a question mark in it anywhere on this thread (looks like this "©") it is supposed to just be a capitalized "C" but the forum refuses to cooperate
