Re: ixals' scratchpad

Very nice! I appreciate that you've shown some of the development from the protolanguage. Thank you! [:D] There's something very pleasing to me about this language's phonology and orthography.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

There were Proto-Slavic verbs ending in -ati that had -aje- throughout its conjugation, but there were also thoe ending in -ati that had -ite or -ete . Serbo-Croatian and West Slavic changed the first to a simple -a- afaik (I guess in Czech it is because a lot of VjV sequences were reduced, as the i...
