I'd also like to add two more conlangs: Ancient Atlantaic: Eda i ie:n I pr. fish pr. = predicate New Bri:sz (a descendant of Ancient Atlantaic) Ja vei I fish The word _vei_ derives from an ancient borrowing of the Nindic word _ffiw_ The word _ja_ derives regularly from ancient Atlantaic _eda_ The sequence of sound changes was: /Eda/ > /ED/ > /jED/ > /jE:/ > /je:/ > /jeI/ > /joI/ > /jo@/
> /jo:/ > /jA:/ > /ja:/ > /ja/
Do you guys think that these are plausible changes to occur over a time span of around 3000 years? Thanks! Elliott Lash
