>>2)which a "-lla" should be in "zi+ua" or in "stea+ua"?.The development -ll- > -w- only applies to word final -lla.

>capra > caprã
>capram illam > caprã-wa > caprãa > capra
>This is the normal development: -wa becomes -a, -ãa > -a.
>diem > zi
>diem illam > zi-wa = ziua (but also: zi-le)
>After a vowel other than -ã, -wa can remain unchanged, as in this
>stellam > steawã > (Arom.) steao, (DRom.) stea
>The normal development of -wã- is -o- (Aromanaian steawã > steao).
>But in final position, Daco-Romanian has -wã > -ã (stea-wã > steaã)
>and -aã > -a.
>stellam illam > steawã-wa > steao-a > steaua
>Here we have regular -wã- > -o, and regular -wa > -a everywhere,
>giving stea-o-a > steaua, as expected.
