Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Just "willow tree"? Yes! [:D] Your turn! (Is it from <salīcitārius>?) Nope, just <salīx> with turned into /sai̯t͡s/ and the <-ārium> was added later on. Here's the orthography and the phonological development: (/ˈaːrjũ/ > /ˈi̯er/ > /jɛu̯/) /ˈsa.li.kẽ/ > /ˈsaʎd͡z/ + /ie̯r/ > /sai̯ˈt͡sjel/ > /sɛˈsʲjɛ...

So does <-ārius> correspond to the segments /ɛu̯/ in the descendant?
Almost [:D]
Jackk wrote:

Also, were any intervocalic segments (apart from the /r/ in the suffix) lenited away by sound change?
Yes, but at the time of deletion, the segment was not intervocalic anymore.

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Well, the suffix ended in <-ius>, it was a bit longer than that [B)]

And yes, it was one of <sī-/sa-/sā->, the middle one to be exact.

Ah, ok - analogised to masculine in the descendant?

With /s/ yes, but not with those vowels.

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Not really multiple declensions. It was not a second declension noun in Latin if I may say so.

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Yes, it's a noun. Concerning the declension, I'd answer yes and no.
