X. What are we going to do with clusters like θx ?
X2. What would those two fables (the King and the God & The Sheep and the Horse) look like now? Still looking like PIE ?
Here's a list of ideas for loanwords that we can borrow in now
Definitely assimilate those sibilants, but if we're applying Grassmans Law how can we get θx clusters? Surely the first consonant would deaspirate giving tx?
I would say w > b in these environments.I also propose we do wl wr > ml mr, bl br, gl gr, or alternatively w > v.
Hm, Honestly I'd prefer the first glide to undergo fortition, e.g. áwyes > ábyes, ágyes and déywos > dédwos, dédʒwos, though admittedly that would fuck up the ablaut patterns for these roots somewhat.Ooh, here's another idea: glides fortite(?) to plosives after glides, so áwyes > áwdes, áwdʒes and déywos > déygos, déybos.
I would like to simplify these, like tʃy I think should definitely lose the separate glide component.We could do a rule for affricate + sonorant clusters (tʃl, tʃr, dʒn, dʒm, etc., plus possible with glides: tʃw, tʃy).
OK, I have the idea of merging short *e *o into /a/ while keeping long *ē *ō in place.I also suggest that, although we voted to keep the vowels conservative, there should be some changes so it's not exactly like PIE.
Oh right, yeah.
Ooh, I really like this. It would be kinda cool seeing how it would mess up the ablaut and how it might get regularized. Personally I prefer w > g and y > dʒ (including wl, wr), but we should vote on the options.
