Oh, I probably should have guessed that.

In any case, /w/ could cause labialization.
And what could it end up to?
My quick look at Index Diachronica, only gave some labialized affricates as starting points.

Miršian - a Finnic conlang

Miršian - ethnonym miršiõ or miršia ćeli - is one of my Uralic projects. It is a Uralic language of the Finnic branch, where it more resembles the Southern languages, Estonian and Livonian. It's a minority language spoken somewhere in the Baltic countries or East from there. Some features: Phonologi...

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

Do any Inuit languages allow coda consonants other than stops? some dialects have turned the stop codas into nasals, but i don't think there exists a dialect where the two coexist. Not true - Kalaallisut has some cases of final /n/, Iñupiat allows both final stops and nasals, and other dialects als...

Re: Kôren language

On proper nouns I have had a problem for many months. Proper nouns have a suffix -o. Definite nouns are stressed on the penultimate syllable. <serpa> [ sɛɹ'pa] 'a house' <Serpa> ['seɹpɛ] 'the house' Because proper nouns are definite, they shoul also be stressed on the penultimate syllable.

Re: Kôren language

Koren has two synthetic tenses: Non-Future and Future. Non-Future is zero-marked and Future has suffix -e. Future is also used to express imperative. Wouldn't that then be more of a realis-irrealis distinction rather than tense? As far as I know, it's still debated if the future tense always entail...
