Now that I have got some introduction to the origin of Serbo-Croatian palatals, which doesn't seem very complicated in the end, I think I can make discuss the main sound changes.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

What is the origin of Serbo-Croatian /t͡ʃ/ vs /t͡ɕ/ and /d͡ʒ/ vs /d͡ʑ/? Did the palatals develop from dentals before front vowels as in West-Slavic or is the origin something more complicated?

Re: Help With Sound Changes

I don't see a problem in /N/.
If /nd/ -> /n/, /ng/ -> //, the old coda /n/ could be pushed to /N/ when not followed by a stop.

Verbs - cannot be heads of NPs, but must be headed by a "dummy noun": 'person that is V-ing' If the verb isn’t intransitive or unaccusative or unergative, can the dummy noun mean “person/place/thing that is V-ed” as well as or instead of “person/thing that is V-ing”? What about ditransiti...

Re: Help With Sound Changes

What do you want to have after the sound changes?


Ideas that came to my mind without thinking:

Geminated stops become ejectives
pp tt kk qq -> p' t' k' q'

Palatalization of alveolars before /i/
t -> c etc.

Re: Snewáhk'toò - Morphophonological Stuff

Old Snewáhk'toò had four vowels: *i, *u, *e, *a. Coda *w merged with them creating: *aw -> o *ew -> ø *iw -> y There are some suffixes starting with /u/ that assimilate with the morpheme-final vowel. The vowel does not lengthen. I think the definite article could be just "u". kaba 'a man' ...
