It's an unlikely change, but I don't think that it's impossible. What are the rules for changing /n/ to /m/? If it's just in the cluster /nd/, then it would be a form of dissimilation, which is somewhat rare, but, hey, isn't that what conlanging's all about? :-) -- "[H]e axed after eggys: And the goode wyf answerde, that she coude not speke no Frenshe ...
