Re: Akuriga

If you just looked in the actual phonotactics, you would know! I'm afraid that's not the case. I see is that it is, and I see the effects of it, but I see no real explanation of why and how /l/ began to behave so unlike /l/ in most languages. This is more like what I had in mind: Some linguistic th...

Shall I reduce the Hííenununóóoþa vowel inventory to /e~ɛ i~ɪ o~ɔ/ e ı o ? Why? Phonemes don't ...
