Do any other languages (I am sure there are at least a few) have a silent
letter or especially a silent modifying letter (as in English "ate", the e is
silent and makes the a long)??? Where does this come from?? Do any of ur
conlangs have this??
On a side note, is Welsh a Celtic language, a Germanic language or like
English? or what? Does Welsh or Celtic or Ire (or whatever you call that
Irish language) use the silent e?
