Ummaví? (credited to Sheikh_Kristophe)

The idea of an "Esperanto of the Muslim World" sound interesting -- I would like to learn the language if a complete grammar and lexicon of it has already been made, or if they are not (as it seems currently) participate in the language's construction. The problem is that the only existing trace of ...

Re: Is Irish North Germanic plausible?

Very plausible, given that some cities in Ireland were founded by Vikings, most notable being Dublin and Wexford, the latter in particular being a Viking town "for about three hundred years" (Wikipedia). An VSO word order, while plausible, would be much less likely than another Gaelic-influenced tra...

It's not entirely clear, however, when this transition happened, or whic...

I had arranged the letters according to their collation order (ABC, a-ka-sa, etc.) in Tuktin, but I'll add a separate list for the phonology.

Interesting source you found. I have my own source, which only confidentially states that the reflex of PS *ǫ was u. Mind telling us what the conclusions are?
The article I cited also aims at that conclusion, if by u you are referring to the long one (ū).
