Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

The first option seems better. Also, for future challenges, there should be a fixed number of guesses per player instead of continuing until someone gets the answer exactly correct.

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge v2

Each pair of words represents a different modern form in a different language, but they all derived from the same word initially. The goal is to reconstruct what that protoform is based on all the modern cognate forms, similar to how proto-languages were deciphered in real life. Also, the previous t...

Quick Diachronics Challenge v2

Same rules as the old challenge, in which we guess the protoforms of the words given. I was wondering whether starting a new thread with a simpler challenge would encourage others to return, apparently each challenge having 4 or 5 words may have been too difficult.

Allophonic /ħ/

How common is [ħ] as an allophone of another sound when there is no phonemic /ħ/? I'd envision it to be most likely as an allophone of /h/ adjacent to low vowels. This appears to be the case in some Finnish dialects, and somehow my English (close to General American) has this as well - hat, hot, har...
