Houx's antecessor was not three or more syllables long.
Thank you for the clarification!

Is Houx descended from or at least related to fuscus?

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

Was the masculine nominative singular form of the Classical Latin adjective three or more syllables long? which adjective? The one Houx is descended from. Sorry, I guess I assumed that, because my last few questions were about that, it would be clear which adjective I meant. Houx 's antecessor was ...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

the term typically used is “minor syllable” (and “major syllable”). This specific arrangement with limited vowels reminds me of a language I made a couple years ago where minor syllables are limited to [C/(C)[R/V]] and only allow the vowels /a i/ in those syllables

It's a rather uncommon construction to use though, because typically the hea...

Does -ent- descend from a Latin suffix? If so, was it a verbal suffix?
