rip the legitimate revelations in thsi topic

speaking of which

revelation -> re-vela-tion -> vela againness -> againness of the sails of a ship

«Vela is a constellation in the southern sky. Its name is Latin for the sails of a ship, and it was originally part of a larger constellation, the ship Argo Navis, which was later divided into three parts, the others being Carina and Puppis.»

Title: Re: words
Post by: Darvince on June 05, 2016, 12:29:03 PM
yes but only in that situation literally nowhere else also it's more like c~kʲ

and if we're going by spelling, if you notice, the u is long when there is a single consonant following it unless that single consonant is the end of the word

Post by: atomic7732 on June 05, 2016, 04:20:09 PM
lots of languages (especially ones with both uvular and velar) actually have much more front velars that could be described as palatal

also vowels are rude and harass consonants a lot :'(
