This language looks interesting, I like it. I think it would be more useful though if the etymology column in the lexicon referenced the immediate ancestor rather than the earliest one (i.e. Satnímʔa words instead of Proto-Western ones, optionally mentioning the second-most-recent source such as Iŋomœ or a Lukpanic language). At least that's what we've been doing with other Akana languages so far, and I think it makes tracing the history of a word much easier. - Cedh (talk) 09:28, 27 December 2013 (PST)

I'm glad you like it! ʔuuleômôh is very much still a work in progress (which is probably obvious from the recent name changes), but I've been having a lot of fun with it. I really admire the Akana stuff you've done, and I've model my lexicon after the one you did for Tmaśareʔ. I'll go ahead an revise the etymologies, though I'm a bit hesistent since I've actually had to derive the Satnímʔa lexicon on my own, since the author never seems to have done one. I'm also not sure how to handle the reflexes from Coastal Western; I've been trying to indicate that the borrowed words come from a dialect relatively close but not identical to Ishoʻu ʻOhu, but I don't think I've managed to make that very clear. -CatDoom 06:46, 29 December 2013 (PST)
