*mumble* *grumble* sound changes *mutter*

So, I'm notating the sound changes I have been using for Thagojian. I have
about 5KB so far, which seemed quite nifty, until I looked at Thrjotran's
50KB file.

The more I look at the results, the less satisfied I am that they
plausibly represent an IE language at around 1000CE, when compared to the
difference between PIE and (e.g.) Old English, or even Lithuanian.

There is going to me a *major* set of updates. Be it noted that the
language formerly known as Thagojian should henceforth be known as
Classical Thagojian (Version 1.0). I guess I need to start paying
attention to vowel length and stress placement in PIE, as well as learning
more about the nominal and verbal stems, and the sound changes in both
Indo-Iranian and Balto-Slavic. Not to mention the sound changes in Coptic
and Hebrew. Ach y fi.

This will be no small undertaking, I fear...
