I can't speak for Creyeditor or anyone else, but I don't believe I do.

Hopefully this is an accurate summary of what's been confirmed so far:

àcogliuac
/əkoˈʎwak/
  • Typically, although not exclusively, used as an adverb.
  • Descended "from three words in Latin (some of which were inflected)".
  • The first word began with short <e> in Classical Latin, which changed to /a/ in "virtually every Romance language".
  • The word does not have an obvious connection to "water" or "wheels".
  • None of the three Latin words are related to colligō or illūc, none were 1st declension nouns, and none were prefixed with con-.
  • The first of the three words was not a preposition, and the third was not suffixed with -cus or -āticus.

Were any of the three Latin words 2nd declension nouns?

I really do not know it. Latin/Romance is not my main area of expertise. Maybe I know, but I am just blanking on it right now.

Thank you so much. I entered a bit late, so I might have missed some of these points.

I should perhaps have realized that it’s much easier to imagine knowing the word if you know the word.

All that looks correct. And at least one of the three words was a second declension noun in Latin

Ah, no worries! That's certainly true, but it can indeed be easy to forget.

Hmm… I'm trying to think of rather broad questions that could potentially help move things along.

Were all three of the words either nouns, adjectives, or verbs in Latin?

the three words in Latin were not all nouns, nor were they all adjectives, nor all verbs.
