So...what are your guys' best theories about where the word "femur" comes from? I'm always interested in Latin words of obscure origin [:D]
My guess is that it is somehow derived from *bʰer- from PIE. I don't know enough about PIE suffixation and similar to make a good guess though

:ind: Hindi चाबी caabi /t͡ʃaːbiː/ "key" ~ :esp: Spanish llave /ʎaβe/ "key"

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

hmm.
Does the <rr> in gurrei come from a non-rhotic consonant or any consonant cluster?

That's of course if Croatiae isn't correct, which I suspect it is.
