Relformaide Dictionary:Umlaut morphemes

From Hacked by Del.icio.us!
Jump to: navigation, search

Several dozen Relformaide morphemes have their final consonants mutate into the next letter they come into contact with in compound formations. In doing so, they place umlauts on their first vowel, or the first unaccented one (if the first vowel carries an acute accent). Since ch cannot double, an n replaces the root's last letter where applicable.

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 If sandwiched between an "l"-final and an "l"-initial morpheme, a*d/-esard is left unmutated for clarity reasons. Examples: esilabodlumat (esil-abod-lum-at; it is a source), choulabodlé (choul-abod-l-e; the cold place).
  2. Select cases.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4 3.5 3.6 When preceded by another root with an l in it, this root's final l becomes ŕ (unless the next l is the first letter).
  4. Except in Relform-, which gives way to this language's name.
