Managed to finish this before the next list is posted despite the
funny words and the strange random words from WordNet (I even did
björkur < *berkuz (loan from Germ.)
I already had this one! :-)
hömnilupur < HOMINI + LUPUS
to save (money)
résjörvir < RE + SERVARE
(Yes, the infinitive ending has changed, because I found it
improbable that both inf. endings -ri and -ir would really survive.
The question was whether -ar would be the ending here (by analogy
with the other -a- from this conjugation), or -ir (by analogy with
all other verbs). I decided to use -ir, since the -a- has dropped
in two many cases to be obvious.)
kúkýstir < CON + *QUISITARE
cf. QUAERERE (part.perf. QUAESITUS)
Other words with prefixes that were from QUAERERE in Latin have
also used *quisitare instead, e.g. 'aðkýstir' 'to acquire'.
Standalone QUAERERE has not survived, but only prefixed verbs in
-kýstir < -QUISITARE.
þémt < THEMA, THEMATIS
The nom.sg. is analogically reconstructed. The regular
from would be **þém
manatuörbur < manatu (modern loan) + örbur < ARBOR
What a strange vocab entry -- German has no word for this tree.
kúkytir < CON + CUTERE
Some other prefixes from verbs from -CUTERE have not been
reanalysed, but sound shifted as a whole, e.g. skytir < EXCUTERE.
'QUATERE' itself has to survived, and -kytir < -CUTERE is only used
in verbs with prefixes.
This has boosted the lexicon to 267 entries.
