One of the Latin based languages I did several years ago had several
classes of mutations. It all depended on what the initial letter of the
word after the mutation was as to what form the actual mutation would
take. I can't recall what the mutations were for, though. I think it had
something to do with freeflowing connected speech; and the mutations must
have been some sort of bridgework betwixt the words.

Since I don't _really_ understand the Celtic ones all that thouroughly, I
have the feeling that Kernu mutations may be off-center somewhat.
