Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Is the thing in question actually some kind of bread, or just bread-like? It's a type of bread. In fact: Is the first root derived from *þaismô? If so, does the word mean leavened bread? Spot on! Your turn. As an aside. for whomever who speaks/spake this language, *klaib means ' unleavened bread'??...

Does šaismý descend from Proto-Germanic?
It does. It wouldn't really be fair in this game otherwise, right?

Does š derived from PG *sk?
No to both.

Are the roots separated as šaismý-klaibs?
Indeed they are, although I should note that there is an inflectional suffix on each side of that hyphen as well.
Is the inflectional ending of klaibs nominative singular masculine?
Yes, it is.

I also assume you mean Klee, "clover", from Proto-Germanic *klaiwaz , but I can't find any definition for "Schäßem" anywhere online, so I don't know what you mean by that. I can say, though, that neithe...

This thread may be kind of what you're looking for?

If you want to make your own thread, though, then yeah, I'd say that this is the right section of the board.

For instance, members of parliament use that as do head of government departments/ministries, abahc (neuter, first declension). A lower ranking government official and the word for civil s...
