Welcome to the page about Yaskal!


Literally 'the language of the people'.

Story




Sound changes

Due to multilingual influences and chaotic genesis, Yaskal has significantly little consistency in all of its aspects, including sound changes.

Yaskal underwent few global sound changes. We can notice a merging of Turkish /y/ <ü> and /ø/ <ö> into [y] <ö>. From this same language, the /ɛ/ sometimes allophoned to /æ/ is now always [ɛ̞]. There is also:
- a sliding of Russian and Polish /ɕ/ <ш> to /ç/ <zy> and /ɨ/ to [ɯ];
- a sliding of word-initial /g/ to /j/;
- a complete disappearance of /f/ phonemically;
- a shift of turkish /uj/ into /y:/ <öğ/.

The most interesting sound change is /ɰ/ <ğ> from Turkish, which behaved in two ways (/ɰ/ or /:/ after a vowel) and now behaves in three : /w/ as onset or intervocallically, /x/ word-finally and /:/ after a vowel and before a consonant. The grapheme is retained in all circumstances, except between two rounded vowels where it is replaced by <v>.

Facts

It retained Romanian definiteness and conjugations as well as Turkish declensions overall.

- Either SVO or VSO, at will;
- (V)z is the copula, -(V)y is the past variant, -(V)v the future one and -(V)c the translative one;
- there is no relative pronoun; a relative clause is introduced by a 'verb+causative verb' combination; if an enclitic copula follows instead of a verb, the copula is suffixed with -ir or -ur depending on the harmony.
- pronouns can decline but not with accusative;
- the object of a mediotransitive verb takes dative;
- partitive takes plural;
- the passive is formed by reduplicating the ending.
