13) b.

NB: it's very odd that a language would adopt Old English style changes before Old English existed? Although I guess it can be explained as a coincidence.
I can see why it would be odd, but it could be possible if we end up deciding to integrate the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes into Londein. If not, than it could probably be explained by those that had already been residing in Britain. If I remember correctly, there were already Anglo-Saxons serving in the Roman military for at least the past 100 years.

There were two-way ties for both #18 and #21. As a result, both questions will be voted on again, but with only the two winning options, and no proposals.. If this results in another tie, I will use random.org (a random number generator) to decide the tie.

b) It should be formed with the construction *habēre "to have" + ad "to" + verb infinitive (Sardinian)
c) It should be formed with the construction verb infinitive + present tense of *habēre "to have" (Western Romance).
d) Other.

24) How should the conditional tense be formed?
a) It should be formed with the construction verb infinitive + imperfect tense of *habēre "to have" (Western Romance).
