While I'm on the subject, why did the adjective Talossán lose its final-syllable stress in the 2007-2014 language? And can we have it back?

It didn't. Talossan is pronounced with ultimate stress according to the stress rule.

Ha ha, shows how much I understand the CÚG Arestadas I spent 7 years bitching about. :) I've got a lot to learn and I'm glad you're on the ball.

Anyway, let's get together a timetable for updating l'Oversteir to use Provisional Rules Spelling, shall we?

Right, sorry.

As I expected, the reintroduction of Ă is by far the most tedious rule to implement, so we should maybe split up the 24500 line Översteir dictionary file into 4 or 5 smaller chunks to get this done anytime soon.
Editing posts is my thing. My bad.

Great, give me a chunk and I'll see what I can do. Any other volunteers?

I hope this is the right thread to put this in...

If you are all revising the spelling of Talossan, what about marking consonant mutation more of the time? I'm not quite sure why it's not usually marked

... because consonant mutations were abandoned in the early 90s, lol. Fossilized remnants thereof are still part of the vocabulary but we no longer use that system.

If you haven't seen it yet, this is a history of how Talossan language developed up until 1999, including the adopting and discarding of mutations. The basic rules of the language haven't changed much since then; only the spelling.

Azul! I’m interested in joining the committee. I’ve spent the past several years studying linguistics at university and I hope I can make use of it here. I hope you’re accepting new members!

I vote yes, and since Miestră added you to the SIGN message list thing, I'll take that as a yes vote from her as well. Welcome aboard!
