I am such a wishy washy person...

Yes, there are MORE changes to Montreiano ;). This time, i've finally
resolved myself on two vowels. Now, the system is, in open syllables, what
became ue in Spanish and uo in Italian, becomes ue in open syllables. the
same with what became ie in Spanish. This brings it back a little closer
to being more Iberian, but keeping it not quite like it. Also, i decided
intervocalic b and v, which were pronounced /B/ become /f/, but only in
this position.


- capra > cabra > caura /kawra/ (b or v before another consonant becomes
like /w/).
- caballus > caballo > cafauio /kafawjo/

I wouldnt have done these changes if I had anything of length, or even a
dictionary set down in the language. A neat thing though, i've been using
the database program i got with Windows ME to keep track of the word, the
translation to english, pronunciation, meaning, and what part of speech it
