Wenetaic is supposed to be a believable con(nat)lang, so I try and figure out
when in conhistory the word was borrowed, mangle it to fit the phonology at that
stage of the lang, and then apply the remaining sound changes to make it
"modern".  At this stage, I'm doing this more "by ear" than by any hard and fast
rules, but I'm shaping and hardening rules as I go.

Conculturish Ob, (but still more on-topic than fish-sauce! :-)

There was also a period in the conhistory of the Wewnet people where there was
an enourmous amount of cultural influence from another conculture ("Darushan", a
displaced set of Darius-era Persians), from which borrowings were taken complete
with their full grammatical forms.  Due to this there was also a fair amount of
hypercorrection which made prestige terms assume (incorrect) Darushan
grammatical forms.  This has all but dissapeared (thanks to a "cultural
revolution" around 1200 years bp), with the few remaining examples being
incorporated into the Roots rather than the Grammar.
