The results are in!

-

158) It is 1555 CE. In the alternate timeline of this thread, Portugal still remained a Catholic country as in OTL. Due to Britain's alliance with Spain and Portugal, it is now required that every Brettaniot monarch be Catholic. The current Brettaniot monarch is Tiodry I, who lacks a male heir now that his son John is Protestant. Who should he name as his new heir?
a) Jaime - He is the son of Tiodry I, but is single and without issue.

159) Should Early Modern Brettaniot undergo a simplification of verb suffixes?
a) Yes.

160) Should Early Modern Brettaniot remain a pro-drop language?
a) Yes.

161) Should the phoneme /r/ shift to a different rhotic as it did in Early Modern English and French?
d) Yes, but with different outcomes in different dialects.

162) Britain's allies in Spain are currently making lots of profit off of colonies in the New World. Should Britain also start a colony in the Americas?
a) Yes.

-

163) How should Brettaniot verbs be simplified?
a) Personal inflections are condensed into a singular/plural distinction. - This would lead to the following (as shown with the verb canter "to sing") - je cante, ti cante, ill cante, nus canten, vus canten, ills canten
b) All plural personal inflections are merged, but singular verb forms somewhat distinguish between person as in OTL English. - This would lead to the following (as shown with the verb canter "to sing") - je cante, ti cantes, ill cante, nus canten, vus canten, ills canten
c) All personal inflections are merged.
d) Same as Option A but the future tense is lost.
e) Same as Option B but the future tense is lost.
f) Same as Option C but the future tense is lost.
g) Other.

164) Should Brettaniot verbs gain verb clitics based on object pronouns as in Spanish and French?
a) Yes.
b) No.
c) Other.

165) The different outcomes of the /r/ rhotic will be based on the Northwest-Southeast divide in Brettaniot dialects. What should be the outcome of this rhotic in said regions?
a) /ɾ/ in the Northwest, /ɹ/ in the Southeast
b) /ʁ/ in the Northwest, /ɾ/ in the Southeast
c) /ɹ/ in the Northwest, /ʁ/ in the Southeast
d) Other.

166) Should the consonant clusters /kw/ and /gw/ be reintroduced through loanwords?
a) Yes.
b) No.
c) Other.

167) It is 1578 CE, and Jaime II has died without an heir. As Jaime never officially declared an heir, Britain has entered a war of succession. The main contenders are John (the Protestant son of Tiodry I), Ranuccio Farnese of Parma (the Catholic great-grandnephew of Tiodry I), and the King of Portugal (the first cousin of Jaime I). Who will become the next king of Britain?
a) John of Braganza
b) Ranuccio Farnese of Parma
c) Cardinal Henry, King of Portugal
d) John (Tiodry's Protestant son) manages to invade with a force gathered from the Northern European states (and support from a significant part of the population) and takes the throne. - proposed by IEPH
e) Other.

168) The colonists we sent have landed in OTL New York (OTL means our timeline), and made a settlement. What should this new settlement be called?
a) New York - proposed by shimobaatar
b) New Britain - proposed by gokupwned5
c) New Dumnonia - proposed by gokupwned5
d) Hesperia - proposed by gokupwned5
List any proposals for names here. For clarification, the proposals will be for the name of the settlement in English. It will be translated into Brettaniot when the results are in.

These are the sound changes that have happened so far from Vulgar Latin to Early Modern Brettaniot. For question 164, I will include the personal pronouns of Early Modern Brettaniot below.

I thought of a few new names for the colony. By the way, you can put forth multiple proposals per question if you'd like.

Make sure there is a provision against personal unions later on as monarchs start becoming less and less British

Will do. Maybe we could vote on defining succession laws in the next series of questions.

/ɛ/ > /ea/
/θ ð/ > /d/
/oi eu ei ou ea/ > /we jo je wo ja/
/wj jw/ > /wi ju/ | after consonants
/ai au/ > /ei ou/
The phonemes /ai au/ are reintroduced through loanwords.
/VCə/ > /VːC/
/t͡s d͡z/ > /s z/
/ɲ ʎ/ > /jn jl/ | in coda position
/ei ou ai au/ > /iː uː eː oː/ | unstressed
/e o/ > /i u/ (unstressed)
Middle Brettaniot to Early Modern Brettaniot
/Vi Vu/ > /iː uː/
/iː uː eː oː aː/ > /əi əu ei ou a/
/kw gw/ > /p b/
/r/ > /ʁ/ | only in the southeast (it becomes /ɹ/ elsewhere)
And here's the current phonology of Early Modern Brettaniot.
Spoiler:
/m n ɲ/ - <m n gn~ni>
/p b t d k g/ - <p b t d c~qu g~gu> (/k g/ are only <qu gu> before the vowels <i>, <y>, and <e>, and /k/ can be written as <c~cq~q> word-finally)
/t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ - <ci~c gi~g> (/t͡ʃ d͡ʒ/ are only <c g> before the vowels <i>, <y>, and <e>)
/f v s z ʃ/ - <f v s~ss~ç s~z sh~sc> (/ʃ/ is <sc> before front vowels)
/r l ʎ j w/ - <r l gl~li y~i w~u> (the spelling of /ʎ/ is determined etymologically, and /j w/ <i u> except initially, finally, and between vowels)
/kw gw/ - <qu~cu gu>
/i u e ə o a/ - <i~y~e u~o e e~a o a> (the distinction between <i~y> /i/ and <e~a> /ə/ is determined etymologically)
/əi əu ei ou/ - <i~y~ai~ay~oi~oy~ae u~au~aw~eu~ew~ao e~ae o~ao>
(Sequences of /əiC əuC eiC ouC/ can also be written as <iCe uCe eCe oCe>.)

Would the sound changes you proposed also reply word-finally? If they did, they would also apply to words such as rose /rouz/, which would be pronounced /rozw/.

168) The colonists we sent have landed in OTL New York (OTL means our timeline), and made a settlement. What should this new settlement be called?
a) New York - proposed by shimobaatar
Wow, really? I didn't even vote for that. [xD]
