Oops, I just reported a problem that the correct answer should use "punt" not "phunt". Did I do the wrong thing? Is "phunt" a dialect or something?

And the "chwech" will lose its "...ch" in Version 2?

"Phunt" is the aspirate mutation of "Punt". "Chwech" causes an aspirate mutation so "Chwe phunt" is the correct form. Due to the aspirate mutation not being used as much "Chwe punt" is also common.

Why do you have to select option with "... chwech punt". Even dropping the aspirate mutation it should be "chwe punt", isn't it?
