Hrrm...then this would probably stay the same, since it's got that long
written _manu:s_ (: = macron), pronounced /manuwS/
or it could be just _manu:_, /manuw/.
or _manu'_, /man'u/, and *then* the vowel would become long for the
Yup, that looks good :) , it keeps the long-vowel-M from before.
manu' / manu:m
(abnormal accentuation on _manu'_, hence the accent. normally, it'd be
on the last long vowel, or like here, without one, on the penultimate

Dammit, i liked having _Vr_ turn into _V:_, ohwell.... :)
So i guess this ends up the same as before, just that instead of being
lengthened, the A: remains the same.
pela / pela:m
>> "pons" (pontis, pontum)
> "po:ns" (pontis, pontum)
So, the lengthening in the nominative case doesn't affect this, same
thing as before! :)
ponso` ['ponSO<dvcd>] / pontu:m
(devoiced vowels can't voice "sayas" letters, and the U lengthened by
association with the long vowels of other plurals)

Same as before:
casa [kaZa] / casa:m [kaZa:m]

Okay, this becomes totally different....hrmmm...
pectoris >> pecto:is [pEktowIS] >> pecto:s >> pecto' [pEx'to]
I'm not sure if this can be rationalized as easy as the manu:s >> manu'
above, since it's a whole syllable dropping off. hrrm...well, if i can
drop off the -ru- in all the -a:rum's and -o:rum's, i can drop off the
-ris here! :)
pecto' [pex'to] / pecto:m [pex'towm]
