I too keep toying with the aidea of a 'myusical conlang'. Ive developt the basics of a phonology for it - cant remember at the moment wether Ive postid them to the list befor or not. Ah yes, found it: The basics: - western 7-note scale; - relativ pitch matterz, not absolute pitch; - a beat is the eqwivalent of a sillable; - there can be up to 4 notes in a beat, and their relativ lengths within the beat dont matter. ===== I'm revolting agenst standerd Inglish spelling. Odd spellings ar probly intentional. ______________________________________________________________________ Post your free ad now!
