Yes

...

To be honest, I think I made a mistake here. The first /c/ should actually be voiced, /ɟ/. [ɟeəɲcə] <gjancja> Hopefully that helps somewhat.

Was it /g/ in Classical Latin, then?

Do <gj> and <cj> correspond to palatalized <d> and <t> in Latin?

No. I recommend looking up Friulan orthography, since that's what I've currently based it upon. The language isn't too different from Friulian either, so hopefully that gives some clues.

So then the initial <gja> descends from Latin <ca>?

Nope. Hint: it descends from a labial.

The word is also a Germanic loan.

Does the first consonant correspond to Latin pl-? like Portuguese?
