TCR4 is starting to shape up. I don't know if I like the shape though. I'm pretty sure it's a failure as triconsonantal root language, which means that nobody will be interested in it. Here's a list of forms, anyways:

TriCons4 Morphology

I've been working full-time on TCR4, which is turning out to be sort of bi-consonantal. One technique I'm using is to partially create a proto-language for it and then apply sound changes (such as umlaut and vowel deletion) and grammaticization to it.

An interesting feature of the proto-language is that it's OVS. Read more... )

I also spent a whole day working on a writing system. I have a picture of it (not finished yet):

Which I can't insert here for various reasons.

TriCons4

While working on P1 (the Pao-inspired one), I got the idea of doing a non-concatenative phonology for it from PB's Iljena. I decided it wouldn't go with the morphology I'd aleady outlined for P1, so it became a new project, TriCons4. I've been trying to make it more naturalistic than my previous tri-cons sketches by working out the phonological history of the vowels; this has gone well, but only up to a point: it seems to me it's just an umlaut system with some length gradation and various kinds of pitch-accent. I think to make it work, I'll have to do enough protolanguage for analogy to occur, which is a lot more work.

TriCons is a constructed language sketch, still very sketchy. Some features are:
* Most roots are triconsonantal, with stem vowels used for inflections.
* Noun phrases distinguish proximal from distal, and these are cross-referenced on the verb.
* Direct and Inverse voices rather than Active and Passive, at least in non-finite forms.

I will continue to edit this post. It contains the proposed triconsonantal patterns. The actual vowels haven't been filled in yet.

Each root can produce one verbal word and several nominal words (this includes adjectival words). Both verbal and nominal words can have both verb and noun forms.
