Fýrë vs. fyrë

How is it possible that your dialect does not have an accent on a vowel where mine does? :o --OuWTB 14:41, dÿrdëmånad 20, 2016 (UTC)

Because you randomly chose to write an accent there on a word which historically did not have a high tone :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 14:48, dÿrdëmånad 20, 2016 (UTC)
Untrue :o The accent does have an implication if the word is prefixed :o Compare: Nekrÿf /nékry:f/ with nefýrë /nefýre:/ :o --OuWTB 14:49, dÿrdëmånad 20, 2016 (UTC)
T'à dijålekt ságo takavíhki :o --OuWTB 14:55, dÿrdëmånad 20, 2016 (UTC)
In that case it underwent a takavíhki accent shift under influence of certain other words :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 16:00, dÿrdëmånad 20, 2016 (UTC)

You did so wrongly though :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 16:11, dÿrdëmånad 21, 2016 (UTC)
No :o This is a breekpunt for me though. If you can't accept your error, we no longer consider Uškárdijålekt to be a Burenian dijålekt, not even a takavíhki one :o --OuWTB 18:22, dÿrdëmånad 21, 2016 (UTC)
Let's consider both forms wrong then :P --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 15:03, dÿrdëmånad 27, 2016 (UTC)

I consider it a possibility, though I believe that more research needs to be done to the tonal systems of the various Burenian dijålekts in order to accurately reconstruct the Proto-Burenian system :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 16:07, dÿrdëmånad 31, 2016 (UTC)
Actually, I just realised that this tonal anomaly very conveniently occurs on a vowel which already behaves anomalously in both of our tonal systems. After all, ỳ and ŷ don't exist :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 21:00, dÿrdëmånad 31, 2016 (UTC)

Rules of the language

What are the rules of Burenian? Is it related to any European languages? MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 22:35, cësqì 12, 2017 (UTC)

Burenian is a (possibly) Eskimo-Aleut language with a Swedish superstrate :o The rules depend on the dijålekt :o --OuWTB 10:15, cësqì 13, 2017 (UTC)
I can't really pronounce any of the words. I'll assume that the word 'mèzcinast' for instance, is pronounced as spelled? Is it a phonetic language? MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 05:45, cësqì 14, 2017 (UTC)
The language is almost entirely phonetic. For a phonology of the Ankélot'apcanska dijålekt, see: [4]. --OuWTB 08:07, cësqì 14, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I can't pronounce that either, I think I'll leave. :O MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 22:11, cësqì 14, 2017 (UTC)

Do you think the articles on the wiki could have audio, sort of like on Wikipedia? I think that if I get the pronunciation right, I could probably record some. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 10:17, cësqì 19, 2017 (UTC)

Sure, why not? Let me know if you record something, and I'll check it. --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 16:23, cësqì 20, 2017 (UTC)
I think I butchered the pronunciation, but here we go. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 08:31, cësqì 22, 2017 (UTC)
Some things that stood out to me:
  • Ł is supposed to be /ɬ/, like this.
  • You used /x/ quite a few times where it should be /g/ or /c/.
  • You got the vowels wrong sometimes, particularly å and a and its variants.
  • You got the stress wrong too sometimes. It almost generally falls on the first syllable, unless there's a high-tone vowel elsewhere in the word (almost all words follow this rule, though there are a few exceptions). So it's Burenia, kaxwyñyq, etc.
  • Where are the tones?
Apart from that, well done. --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 15:31, cësqì 22, 2017 (UTC)
Tones?! Well, I'll have to try that again. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 22:13, cësqì 22, 2017 (UTC)
Yep, Burenian's tonal :P --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 22:24, cësqì 22, 2017 (UTC)
Is that pitch-shifting or stress? MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 06:49, cësqì 23, 2017 (UTC)
Pitch-shifting, mainly, though tones have some influence on stress. See User:4kant,6/Fónoxlô#Prosodía for more information about stress and intonation. --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 14:25, cësqì 23, 2017 (UTC)

Is the tone always indicated by the mark on top of a vowel? MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 21:57, cësqì 23, 2017 (UTC)

Yes. --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 22:31, cësqì 23, 2017 (UTC)
I tried again: [5]. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 07:53, kuxkurÿ 1, 2017 (UTC)
I'll just say Burenian's a hard language to pronounce for speakers of European languages :P --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 16:21, kuxkurÿ 4, 2017 (UTC)
It sounds takavíhki, so I think he nailed Uškárdijålekt :o --OuWTB 12:45, kuxkurÿ 5, 2017 (UTC)
He didn't though :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 14:35, kuxkurÿ 5, 2017 (UTC)
Then why don't you make a recording if you think you so much better than him? :o --OuWTB 16:53, kuxkurÿ 5, 2017 (UTC)
I never said I was better, I only pointed out he was making mistakes :o Though the thought has struck my mind to make an attempt myself too, sometime :o --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 17:11, kuxkurÿ 5, 2017 (UTC)
:o I am rather familiar with your "sometime" though and it tends to mean "never" :P --OuWTB 18:37, kuxkurÿ 5, 2017 (UTC)
I maybe will have to make a recording in Kob. It seems easier to pronounce. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 21:57, kuxkurÿ 5, 2017 (UTC)
@Oos: :P --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 08:03, kuxkurÿ 6, 2017 (UTC)

But seriously though, Burenia is an incredibly difficult language to pronounce if you're used to English. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 22:05, kuxkurÿ 6, 2017 (UTC)

Burenian* is probably difficult for every non-native speaker, considering the grammar, pronunciation (tones, syllabic consonants etc.) and internal dialectual differences. --OuWTB 14:54, kuxkurÿ 7, 2017 (UTC)
Fortunately my dijålekt doesn't have syllabic consonants :P --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 20:16, kuxkurÿ 7, 2017 (UTC)

MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 22:08, kuxkurÿ 18, 2017 (UTC)

Fortunately he won't get elected anyway :P --QytokantFRÅGOR??? 12:30, kuxkurÿ 21, 2017 (UTC)
Indeed, I think Burenians would hate it if Burenia became a Lovian state. MyOwnBadSelf (talk) 21:59, kuxkurÿ 21, 2017 (UTC)

I think we shud declare war with Leifsland, cuz they don't allow a Burenian province. Now nobody who wants to learn a non-takavíhki dijålekt can learn it that way :'( --OuWTB 07:21, dÿrdëmånad 4, 2017 (UTC)
