Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

It seems like the general convention has been to ask one question per post. There's no rule against asking more, but it might be better to not ask too many questions at once so that other people also have a fair shot.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

One of the words appears to be transcribed afə̻xdo, with a square below the ə. As far as I know, a square below an IPA letter indicates laminal articulation, which I don't think makes sense for a vowel. Is this a mistake, or is it a notation that I'm not familiar with?

Why do you say "could/would"? Was this word not actually attested in Classical Latin?
