Did both nouns belong to the same declension?

No, I don't think I'd say it's too difficult. I've personally been "holding back" from guessing in hopes that someone else will jump in, because if I'm the only one guessing, then eventually I'll get it right, making it my turn, but I don't have a Romlang.

Was cot the adjective?

Does the adjective agree with the noun in number and gender?

I do remember. I guess I should have worded my question differently.

When hian was an adjective, did it agree with cot? Or did this phrase only come into use after it stopped being an adjective?

Neither do I. Whenever it's my turn I just make up a word that could be from a romlang.

Are both nouns singular?
