>>a, o, w, i, e are vocals
>Is /l/ vocalic in words like _troglslso_?
I'd say /l/ isn't, in pronouncing that word I'd accent the first
syllable, and pronounce "ls" as one tongue movement/consonant. Sorry
for lack of phonetics!! I'll get that documented within the week at
>>Mixing Genders is possible, but extremely unusual, in oddball compound
Chimeras and algae keep on popping into mind--though they might fit into
the "unknown gender" gender, they are not accidents and algae is quite
common( where these imaginary people live). Similarly, in English, what
do you call a hermaphrodite? By xis mental gender? Physical gender?
I imagined the Lakmaye scientists studying some microorganism they once
imagined to be a certain gender, but is in fact another gender, and how
this would affect their terminology.
Apologies for the lack of clarity, I am quite tired. --Cristina
