Morpho-phonology 0.19.0[edit | edit source]

12 Roots are now only up to five consonants in length

15 "MONDADIC" should be "MONADIC"

15 MSS/DPL/RPV/A results in a value of -tţ-, which is phonotactically impermissible

15 [affiliation]/MDS is ambiguous with [affiliation]/ATV/A/RPV, and [affiliation]/MDC is ambiguous with [affiliation]/ATV/N/RPV.

16 "pm -> vmm" should maybe be "pm -> vvm"

16 Sec. 3.6.3 lists outdated Combination Referential Specification forms

18 Due to the -y- infix in level morphemes, modular adjuncts are always ambiguous when encoding any absolute level. For example, the adjunct "oyeha" could encode either just SPLa level or REG aspect + CRO valence

20 VxCs affix for Mood not found in docs; only Modular Adjunct and Mood Adjuncts available

22 The case accessor should read "the party by / thru which / whom X is subjectively interpreted / considered / described"

34 It is not pragmatic for an affix to scope above an entire formative; forms could instead mark scoping in concatenation chains

36 Modular adjunct slots 3 and 4 use a redundant Cn, which can simply be ň; Vh scoping is impractical (what does it mean to scope above Validation+Illocution+Expectation?) and is de facto given by affixual adjunct scoping

39 Agglomerative form v is ambiguous with pi/DET

39 Agglomerative form -tļ- is ambiguous with 2p/BEN+pi/NEU. i.e. an adjunct like ëstļu can parse as ë-s-tļ-u or as ë-s-t-ļ-u. Easily solved by eliminating -ļ- as a combining form for pi/NEU

43 due to geminate referential forms, a word like kapreomma is ambiguous, and may be parsed as k-a-pr-eomm-a, with a VxCs referential affix -eomm-, or as k-a-preo-mm-a with a -preo- referential CsVx and geminated Ca value. This can be resolved by banning referential affixes in slot V or by taking the Nomic -ç- form to form non-geminate forms, e.g. mm→mç, ll→lç, nn→nç, etc.

43 A second ambiguity concerning referential affixes: they are ambiguous with type three case accessors when the latter bear an adverbial case or a spatio-temporal II case. For example, kalöečwa could bear either a type three CON accessor or bear the referential Mx/N/BEN-CON. One solution would be to prohibit using Nomic in referential affixes. For consistency, we could ban all Ca modifications to referentials in affix form, similarly to how it's done in referential formatives

46 - In the definition of the Satiative bias, pleasure is misspelled

46 Section 4.9 - Parsing Adjunct says to refer back to Section 2.2 Paragraph 5, when it means Section 2.3 Paragraph 5.

51 Section 5.4 - Relative Clause Formation contains a superfluous note saying that default values in the linear analysis haven't been included, when this has been the case throughout the document.

54 Section 5.6 - Mmiäxainļ should be Mmiexainļ; Nniexainļ should be Nnioxainļ; Ňňeoxainļ should be Ňňxainļ

55 Section 5.7 - hwelu-azčojhaillöelyá should be hrelu-azčojhaillöelyá; Kšölaelwêi should be kšöllwêi

57 Section 6.0 - ksialärsirwa should be wuksärsëirwa; ksialärsëirwiasta should be wuksärsëirwiasta; SPT/5 affix -irw- should be SPT/5 affix -ëirw-

57 Section 6.1 - wurḑaušš should be wurḑauj

60 Irtysh should be transliterated "irtiš", Rio Grande should be transliterated "grande", and"riyadh" should be "Riyadh" (with a capital R); if so, Yangtze River should be "caň" instead of "caňčyaň" which means "Long river", parallel to hwaň "Yellow river";

60 phwära hle’e should be phwära hle’i;

60 Ithkuil phonotactic restraints do not apply as long as the name is pronounceable. According to this principle, hönkoň should be made höňkoň for Hong Kong, parallel to čuňkwo for China; Likewise tuňkwan for Dongguan

62 Papua New Gunea should be Papua New Guinea

62 Are Liberia laibirya and Malaysia mëleisya English pronunciations with local accents? Why using -a instead of schwa?

62 romênia should be romênìa for Romania?; tonga should be toňa

62 saintvinsentangrénadinz for St. Vincent & the Grenadines should be seintvinsentangrénadinz as seintkicannevis for Saint Kitts & Nevis

63 hlaḑtáu-eḑtëila hi kongo has a typo in hlaḑtáu-eḑtila hi kongo; Also, this seems to make more sense: T1-S1-“democratic government“-OBJ-ASI—S2-“republican government“-OBJ?

WRITING SYSTEM FOR NEW ITHKUIL (December 2021)[edit | edit source]
