Post subject:  Risha Cuhbi grammar

I have for a little while been working on compiling my notes on Cuhbi into a coherent grammar. I've essentially been writing chapters haphazardly in no particular order; two are at any displayable level of completion. I'll be posting these in .pdf and .docx format.

Derivational Morphology

Phonology docx

Phonology PDF

Morphology of the verb docx

Morphology of the verb PDF

Morphophonology docx

Information flow docx

I think we should get on topic and discuss the topic of these files rather than their format.

We're missing basic phonology which I would love to see!

But why did you choose to focus on morphophonology rather than morphology with morphophonology as essentially footnotes? It's a bit hard to follow something that is basically a description of the language's origins rather than its current state. Maybe I'm just old fashioned but I find it much easier to follow along when the division of information is by word category rather than affix type. Is this lame criticism? Sorry...

Because the morphophonology is elaborate enough that it deserves its own treatment. It's hardly a historical description of the language; there are occasional diachronic notes in there as explanatory aids, but the information is pretty much all relevant to the language as it is spoken now. And it IS organised by word type. I appreciate though that without any explanation of e.g. verbal morphology it's probably not that interesting for most people - I only wrote it myself so that I would have a reference for working out surface forms since before I was being quite inconsistent and working them out as I went along, probably producing lots of clashing variants in practice.

I've added a brief summary of the phonology to the first post as a placeholder for a full chapter.

This is a very minor nitpick, but you apparently forgot to place /ɳ/ in the consonant inventory table.

Chapter on morphology of the verb posted - not morphophonology, but an introduction to the morphemic structure of the verb and what the various different bound morphemes do.

Good things, good things.

Also: [ˈris.ha ˈc͡çuh.bi]? I think I like that.

It will always be [ˈɻʷiʃə ˈkʰʉwbi] in my heart!

The native name for Risha is actually Msííweh, but yeah, Cuhbi is [ˈc͡çùh.bī]. Although the actual common endonym for the language in Risha Cuhbi is... err, what is it? I'm not sure. Probably 'real language' or something.

If the language description is only halfway as rich and authentic as the Risha Cubhi texts it's worth to have a thorough look at.
