#208161 - 11/28/12 11:09 PM Re: Word with the most progeny [Re: HalAl]
That led me to wonder what root word has spawned the most offspring?
Well, you probably mean which Proto-Indo-European root has the most reflexes in the Indo-European daughter languages. Tough question. I guess you could look at Pokorny's dictionary and try to count which entry is the longest. Kind of strange.
Oh, and welcome to the fun house!_________________________
