I'll give some hints: The literal meaning is They lived happi...

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

I'm going to tentatively guess it's from a form of vīvō . I don't think I recall the <v/u> distinction presenting a problem in this thread in the past, although I could be wrong. [tick] [tick] Correct! from *vixerunt indeed, with the <oi> by analogy with verbs like *valuerunt. So it's "a happy live...

Does the affix (I presume a suffix) come from -urnus? and if it doesn't is there a part internal to the suffix that's elided? [cross] The suffix isn't from -urnus, no. It is from a verb ending.
