Love this template! Just one question: what do you mean by sound changes? Is it if the language has changes much from its parent language(s) or if it contain umlauting and similar features?

Hey. Yeah the template's mad outdated - I've been sporadically thinking of making a new one but eh what do I know.

For sound changes I meant more along the lines of synchronic processes: sound changes still in effect that carry out during inflection or whatnot, like voicing assimilation that makes [zb] from /sb/.

I'd love to create a conlang that could be written letter-for-letter in the Latin, Cyrillic, and Kana scripts. Of course, such a language would be restricted to a Japanese-like syllabary. I'm going to give that idea some serious thought :)

You know, you don't have to make it fit Japanese phonosyntactics; I remember a Finnish hiragana attempt, and I know of an Icelandic katakana orthography, so there's some ideas there.

True. I hadn't thought about that. Thanks for the Icelandic Katakana link.

Excuse me? I'm still confused as to what declining means in linguistics, as well as the morphosyntatic alignment. Could you care to link me to a place that explains them, or explain them yourself?

Now, if I'm not confused, the syllable structure pertains to the consonants and vowels in a syllable, would you give me an example of how this would work with English?

Thank you for your time!

Declining is changing the nominals according to categories :D
Morphosyntactic alignment describes which cases are the core ones.

Yes, I figured out the declining thing by myself, but thank you for explaining anyway. :D

I think I got it, thank you very much. What happens if my language doesn't have cases, though?

For any language, I'd reccomend between 4 to 13 cases, though if you manage more, it's gonna pay off big! If you kill pre/postpostitions, it's far harder (I was a dummy two years ago DX )

Yeah, specific-ness is a big part of any language. I assume your familiar with the way that the Japanese and Korean languages use postpositions? It's a very logical system, and I borrowed a great deal from it.

Haha, you killed off postpositions? I feel sorry for you. Your language has 28 cases, though, so obviously you learned from the experience. That's good. :D

Korean and Japanese are very structured, and my conlang is a VOS, and every case is on the affix (suffix, prefix, circumfix, everything)
I give advice to everyone NOT to go and have no (insert)positions, it just makes it harder. I only have a few particles for moods and voices, but they don't count.

Such a good idear, I'll be filling this out soon I think... (don't be mad though, if I don't keep the yes/no's simple... because Sfeneen and especially Èmuufeneen is not that simple...)
