The Dailies. September 25
Did you work on your language today? Create any new rules of grammar or syntax? New progress on a script? New words in your lexicon?
On the other hand, do any excavating or reading or enjoying stuff you’ve already created? Do you have any favorites to share?
How did you conlang today?0

So watched a vid yesterday here: David Peterson’s The Art of Language Invention, Episode 27: The Evolution of Tone.
It gave me some direction I think I can actually work with to figure out how Akachenti got it’s tonal accents and possibly enough to backtrack how those standalone pronouns reduced down to the pronominals. In short, breathiness leads to low tone and tense consonants (frequently including glottals) lead to high tone, which definitely correlates with what Akachenti has going.
Also potentially helpful was his video on vowel quality change, which should help me figure out how the high vs. low vowels figure into the tonal accent as well (because they do).
I might actually start conlanging again after a massive block on that front, so looking forward to revisiting Akachenti now.
I need to get to listening to that, especially now that I’ve caught up on the Conlangery podcast.
Glad to hear you’re getting into it again!
