There is also every word in Polynesian languages, where every syllable ends in a vowel.

Wazo is how you spell "bird" in Verdurian. That I know because I have the "Dictionary of Made Up Languages". And because I read on the Verdurian site that some of the words come from French and Russian.

For the record, many Hawaiian speakers do not even have [t] before front vowels. Also you're using /phoneme brackets/ when you should be using [phonetic brackets].

Yes. But I didn't know about Verdurian until I got that book or when I looked at WeepingElf's site.

m̓ałʔaaʔamaʔaała in Nuu-Cha-Nulth. According to Advanced Language Construction, 'it's always cold on the rocks'. The same vowel repeating over and over, two times lengthened.

It's not that unusual to find words with only /a/ considering it is the most common vowel in the world.

Birdlang.... how shall I put this?

Up your standards.

No, no, how about this:

We've upped our standards, so up yours.

I'm slowly becoming convinced that Birdlang is a troll.

Slowly becoming convinced? Isn't it, like, immediately obvious after reading a couple of their posts?

Well, it's a toss-up between being a troll and suffering from an acute case of preteenitis.

Quite. He may even not be aware of his trollishness, which kinda disqualifies him from being a troll, does it not?

I was wondering if he had Asperger's or something, similarly to how Eddy had all the effects of a troll but was able to point to having a mental syndrome.

Civil War Bugle is right. I have ADHD and autism. Not to mention kitchensinklangfanNo.1. So you may be right that I have the effects of a troll like Eddy, but I am not.

I can't remember how to say it in Moroccan Arabic, but "She turns the couscous steamer just like her mom" ~~ "Chip off the old block" is one of my favoriter expressions from Morocco

Swahili lililililia means "it cried for it", as long as both "it"s are class 5.

Swahili:

Hivyo ndivyo ilivyo, sivyo?
hivyo ndi-vyo i-li-vyo | si-vyo
DEM.REF.8 EMPH.COP-8 9-REL.COP-REL.8 | NEG.COP-8
"that.way is.the.way which.it.is | it.is.not.so"

"That's the way it is, isn't it?"

(Class 8 is frequently used for adverbial meanings and class 9 is a default inanimate class.)
