Language Structure Problems
Examine these data from Ragayo: the created language from Secrets of Bearhaven.
Consider [l] and [r]. Are they allophones of the same phoneme or are they allophones of separate phonemes?
1. [lar] -- original or natural
2. [ruhu] -- to wait
3. [alu] -- to be slow
4. [ablad] -- bored
5. [lom] -- back
6. [aru] -- to react instinctively
Yes, it's a 'real' language, and yes, I (sheri Wells-Jensen…) had the delight of creating it.
In case you want to know, and trust me, you do, here is a link to more info on
the book which made Ragayo necessary:
Secrets of Bearhaven by K.E. Rocha.
