Re: New language discovered recently in Malaysia.

Hmm. The researchers should go to Glasgow; they'd find plenty of 'words, phonemes and grammatical structures' that aren't in English. Seriously, though: Jedek and Jahai are very closely related.

Re: Question about languages in an 'unstable' conworld

On the other hand the instability would encourage frequent migrations, so I'd guess this implies that sprachebundes would be less common, and most languages would have a relatively het...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Yeah, Auvon's the winner. The answer was *'ekonom. The *sk cluster came from the palatization of the k, not an original cluster. The original location of the stress makes it more likely than just *skonom. The central *o becomes *we in a couple of languages, and not the reverse. There wasn't any true...
