Further allomorphy ideas

You might want to add a reading /nel/ for 四, for nelikko and neliö? Ofc /-lji-/ would not be even permissible per Finnish phonotactics, but maybe still worth mentioning.

Similarly, if you're having 飲 as simply /juo/, you might need a reading /jo/ for the past stem joi-.

Moreover on CVV stems: if you were to have both /juo/ and /jo/ for 飲, then perhaps kuu puu suu should be simply 月 木 口, vs their imperfect stems 月い 木い 口い? Cutting a "stem" off a long vowel seems a bit excessive.

And for 北, also /pohj/ might make sense, given the archaic pohja "north" (e.g. in pohjatuuli).

Oh thanks, I'll change all of those things except for puu etc. It's easy to overlook forms of words. Regarding /-lji-/, isn't there such a word as "neljin"?
Kiitos! :)

I don't think I've ever needed to use the instructive of neljä aside from the expression nelinkontin, which does show the loss of /j/… Though hmm, I figure plural forms of local cases might allow /-lji-/ after all ('kävin viime viikolla neljissä bileissä')? Similarly veljieni — oh wait and definitely poljin or the imperfect hylkiä > hyljin. So yeah, retracting that. --Trɔpʏliʊmblah 17:59, 27 June 2014 (PDT)
Hahah, okay. :)
