Re: Sound Change Quickie Thread

You should make that one set split into two:

i u > j w / _V ! _{i u}
VV > V:

Then the rest which aren't eliminated by the above.

Maybe so, but what's contradictory about drinking them pleasantly warm instead of scaldingly hot?

You don't like hot cocoa or chocolate or whatever you call it? Milk with honey when you're sick before going to bed? Hot chocolate. And I said already, I don't drink hot drinks. Look there, I put emphasis on 'hot', which makes it mean "I don't drink drinks which have a very high temperature". Of co...

Re: Post your conlang's phonology

It's been posited by certain people for PIE (where palatal = velar and velar = uvular, apparently), but I'm asking him specifically ...
