The premise behind this is simple: I start off by posting a phonemic inventory, notes on syllable structure, and a couple of short grammatical notes. Then, somebody takes up the challenge and turns this, within 24 hours, into a language with at least 50 words, a somewhat fleshed-out grammar, and a couple of sample sentences. Then they post a similar description of a different language, and we keep going.

Here's the first one, with a minimalist, Polynesian-like phonology:

Consonants: /p t ʔ m n ɸ h ɾ/
Vowels: /i e ɛ a u o ɔ/. No length or tone distinction. Stress is up to you.

Syllable structure is (C)V(h): tiʻo, ʻênaʻeh. /hh/ and /hʔ/ are realized as [h].

Grammatically, it should have a small number of inflections, a simple pronoun system, and split-ergativity. Have fun!

I don't have enough time in a 24 hour period to devote to it :( Maybe sometime though.

Dhokarena, my man, I might give it a shot, but might violate that "simple inflections" rule

Post subject:  Re: 24-hour speedlanging challenge

The way to do these is to give a reasonable-sized TC (a substantial paragraph) and about 3-4 hours; you've placed too many restrictions for it to be of interest to me, and you can produce quite a lot more in 24 hours.

Not that I really have 3 consecutive hours to spare at the moment, anyway, what with working until 7-9pm most days, even if I do usually start at around 12-1pm to make up for it...

I had intended to do it, but have been otherwise occupied with school-type things.
I have an chunk of free time starting in about 3 hours, so perhaps I'll take a look then.

Post subject:  Re: 24-hour speedlanging challenge

Okay, I gave it a go, check .

I put most of it in this html page. But this is long and tedious so there are tidbits missing, like the fact that the alignment becomes ergabs when the sentence in the past tense, put it shows in the examples.

I haven't fulfilled most conditions (word number, strict phonology, time alloted) but I liked the exercice.

So what's the next challenge, then?

Author:  Opera [ Sun Feb 12, 2012 12:17 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: 24-hour speedlanging challenge

I figured I'd let someone else who adhered more to the rules give the next challenge.

Take as many hours as you want between 1 and 5 (or whatever; the idea is to do it in one try), sit down and get working on a dialogue. Content and size up to you.
Constraints: between 3-5 vowels without suprasegmental features

Post subject:  Re: 24-hour speedlanging challenge

I'd do it if the constraints were more interesting; as it is, I have several conlangs that qualif--wait, no, no I don't, the only one I have that doesn't have either tone, a register system, or a stress accent is Kannow, which has six vowels. (Let's see... all Kett langs have tone besides Insular, which has stress; Proto-Hathic has a register system; Hathic langs all have contrastive nasality except Hathic, which has pharyngealization; Hoanu sort of has stress; and everything else I haven't started work on. Welp.)

But still, more interesting constraints.

Post subject:  Re: 24-hour speedlanging challenge

I also prepared a conlang for dhokarena's challenge. I wanted it to have a little more stuff, but I guess that now that two conlangs have been posted already I'll post what I have:



This is the first conlang I've worked on that I've ever put on the internet, by the way.

And yeah, the new challenge definitely needs more interesting constraints (or just more constraints), see the original challenge by dhokarena. A 5-vowel /a e i o u/ system with no prosodic features is just... nowhere near enough.

It's spelled definite and it's not a proper noun... And no I didn't, my conlang was for dhokarena56's post ("I also prepared a conlang for dhokarena's challenge..."), not Opera's. You do the next one.

fneh. i suppose it would be asking too much to say there should be constraints that i don't already have a phonology for?

oh well, i might take this opportunity to start on the grammar of ketas

Maybe it should just be a race- the first to present a sketch of the outlined language outlines the next one...

I might revamp this sometime over the summer, seems like it was a fun idea.
