Yeah, that's right. Now that I think about it, -n dissapears after
accented vowels in the end of many Catala nouns: revelacio, nacio, Catala,
etc. My expertise is Castillian, and generic Spanish, where to my
knowledge this loss _does not_ occur. Other losses yes, but not -r (nor
-n). [Note that I understand that n and r are different, but both _are_
vowels occuring in the same locations; with similar phenomena.]
Sigh. I guess we must be more careful!
