  • The singular should be *euarchontoglis if the plural were formed regularly from it; but back-formation has several analogical options. In this case euarchontoglire has been formed, probably not just by removing the -s (zoologists are too fly for that) but by looking at words such as 'carnivore', 'laurasiathere' (cf. Greek thêr). In fact it's -glire that's used, and *-glis only occurs here on Wordie: no-one else has thought to coin it.

  • You removed an "e" with Euarchontoglis, eutherian, but the second "o" prevents it from being a euvocalic panvocalic.

  • Hmm, now if we just find a way to get rid of the extra "o"...

  • Oh, so it was already on Wordie! According to the etymology you provided, the singular of Euarchontoglires is Euarchontoglis.

  • member of the mammalian clade Euarchontoglires, comprising primates plus Glires (rodents and rabbits), and a few minor groups, but not bats

    Name derived from Archonta, a formerly hypothesized group covering primates and bats, now disproved, and the Glires (Latin plural of glis "dormouse").
