Phonological considerations

I have a tendency to try to make my conlangs have self-segregating morphologies, so that's where a lot of the loglang-ish aspects come in.

With this language, I am going to accomplish that by having initial stress on all words. Stressed syllables will undergo vowel breaking. The beginnings of words will thus be distinguishable via allophone.

It'll probably be something like this:

/e/ > /ai̯/
/o/ > /au̯/
/i/ > /əi̯/ or /eu̯/
/u/ > /əu̯/ or /oi̯/
/a/ will remain unchanged in stressed syllables, but will become /ə/ in unstressed ones

Even with this, though, this language just kind of a grammatical skeleton I can throw any sort of phonology and lexicon over. Which is a shame, as I enjoy creating phonologies, and I'd like to have a phonology and lexicon that's more closely tied to the grammar of the language.

I know I'm thinking of a pretty simple syllable structure, perhaps with mostly mono- and disyllables, so I've considered creating homophonous pairs that are distinguished by grammatical gender. However, I don't want to require every word to have a gender-bearing determiner, but if I don't, there'll be a large amount of semantic ambiguity. Does anyone have any other ideas to spruce up the grammar of this language in regards to its phonology and vocabulary?

Nice isolang so far. I'm not sure if this is the kind of advice you're asking for, but with your five vowels plus 20 consonants, you'd have 2000 possible CVC root forms and 10000 possible CVCV root forms (assuming no restrictions), which should be enough for a naturalistic conlang. (I'd include CVC roots as a special form of CVCV roots, like say, final -u gets dropped after sonorant or something, but that's just a personal taste.)

what Tangut looks like depends heavily on the reconstruction

go read Amritas, a conlang based on that would be *interesting*
