From whence hast thou came?

Postby JuxtapositionQMan » 2013-12-26, 19:09

I just thought this great game up!
Basically, someone posts an IPA transcription of a word and its translation in English, purposely omitting what language it is. The next person must guess what language it is and, if right, posts their own entry. ect. If the person is wrong, the person after tries the original. Ad infinitum.
btw, no conglangs except Esperanto and Volapük.
Edit: Edit: keep going until people get it. Until then, do not post a transcription. The correct guesser gets to chose the next one.
eg.
GuyNumba1
-/ʃejl/ shale
#2IsAllINeed
-Polish
-/klajnbɑɑs/ young boss
3%of3%
-Nope, English
-/æɰsərstə/ very
4Athens
-German
-/mandʒi/ eat
ect.

I'll start this off with:
/alθi:ðulɛgyr/ communal, of the folks

Don't worry, you're doing it right.

It was Icelandic

Intentional. Shakespeare, if you recall, had horrible grammar.

Okay... Yet, he's known to liberally use colloquialisms that were native to his own idiolect, so I wouldn't say he had a horrible grammar skill.

Anyway, I don't want to ruin your game overall. Sorry and carry on. :oops:

Icelandic was my first guess! But, shouldn't it be ['alθiðylɛgyr]? I guess that threw me off.

The next one is German (or English as a borrowed term.)

yeah, the last vowel should be /y/. Otherwise, no. Edit: fixed!
you didn't post the next phonetic transcription, btw.

But, in Icelandic, /u/ is [y], and it has a /u/ there...

Polish?

The root is clearly Slavic and the nasalized vowel gives a hint. Does it really have that overshort vowel at the end?

Nope, not Polish. But, it is Slavic.

I'll guess yours, though I don't think it's good to the rules... I'm guessing Kashubian? They have weird sounds, and it looks similar to the Czech term (which I found through the secret to the game!)

Old Church Slavonic then?

No, mine isn't Kashubian, but it's Slavic as well.
