Was either of them a bound morpheme?

[cross] , one part is quite small! [;)]

[tick] , the second one was in Latin but the first morpheme wasn't a productive root and only exists in this word so then both of them might be? "roiçanhó" isn't identifiable as being made up of two morphemes by the language's speakers though!

Is it a nightingale (Spanish ruiseñor)?

I definitely didn't expect that. Yes, it's a nightingale. [tick] [tick] [tick]

It's okay to pass your turn to someone else.

I don't have a Romlang at all, but I still play. Like Creyeditor said, you can always pass.

I pass, since I don't have a romlang to contribute with.

Mind if I take a turn anyway, just to see how it goes? I'm going to go ahead and ask forgiveness later if you feel I shouldn't have (instead of waiting for permission, now). Hopefully I am able to answer all the questions you guys ask of me. Also, please don't cheat, as I may have posted this word on the boards already in Translations, but I wanted to use an easier word (maybe?) instead of the more obtuse ones considering the language I am using is NOT your standard Romance language even though it does use Latin as a base... here goes, complete with native script:

Is it made of two morphemes? If so, is the second morpheme -īnus?

[tick] (it's a compound, actually) and [cross]

Does the nasalization come from a lost nasal coda?
