Re: Goþesch Razde

Russian, too, has s large number of reduced vowels. It’s not specifically a Germanic thing.

Re: West Saxon Grammar Sketch v 0.0.1

I love that you transformed the first person dual into an optional inclusive plural. Very cool!

I also really like the truncated non-tonic form of the first person singular pronoun before all those consonants. It’s a great bit of allomorphy.

Is it "poisonous mushroom", from *aitrą (poison), *ūkwǭ (toad), and *stōlaz (stool)?
That’s exactly right.

I forgot that the word for poison began with *ai. It shifted to *ē very early in the move towards Sortsbergish.

Does ауко mean "to increase?" (<*aukaną?)
No, it doesn’t.
Is it descended from a Proto-Germanic word with *au in the initial syllable?
No. All the dipthongs in the Old Sortsbergish are derived from long vowels in PG

Thank you. It would have taken me a while to get that, I think.

Is it itr- (from the original post) or ikr- (from this last post)?
Sorry, it is itr.

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Since this has stalled and Shimo is the only one who has guessed here are some hints.

The morpheme boundaries are: ikr-ako-stuo-s

While this word is definitely modern, the antecedents to these roots in Ecclesiastical Sortsbergish would be:
иекр
аукo
stuols

Thanks for the hint. Is any other element of the word a single letter?
No. The remaining roots are all at least 3 letters.
