Questions about Talossan? Ask here!

Have you ever had a question about the Talossan language but were too afraid to ask it? Would you just like to know how a certain word or name is spelled or pronounced? If so, please ask all your questions here, and I'll make a video where I'll (try to) answer them all!

Thank you so much for this! It's one thing to hear the pronunciation in your head, but it's something very different to hear it spoken aloud. I would love to hear, not only words, but sentences strung together to get a better idea of the flow of stress.

This was kind of like a fun game, because I would say the word out loud before you did, and counted how many I got right. Let's just say it was not a majority... although it wasn't zero!

Great work!

Names have always been somewhat of an issue in Talossa, so heres the sequel-spin off of "How Do You Say This Word?"

I seem to have done a little better with the first video than the second. I miiiight be a little shocked that I constantly mispronounced "xh" all this time as /ʒ/ rather than straight up /dʒ/... Also I had no idea about /ɬ/ in "tamlalt" and "Válcadác'h". My stress was also all over the place, especially for surnames :c

as always, great job ^^ Marcel for UrGP when
hello ^^
