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

Anyone know if Grassman’s law operated on Sanskrit’s unvoiced plosive series, or if there are traces of Grassman’s Law in Armenian or other languages that retained aspiration?

Hehe!

I don't think so! Thread got hijacked by an emerald wasp.

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs 2

can “centrala” be understood as a location (eg. “shopping center”, “commercial center) as compared to a concept (eg. “center of mass”, “center of charge”)?

is -açônel equivalent to English “-ational”?

was there a consonant in Latin between the predecessors to the sequence uê?
