-------------------------------------------------------------

My language cheats.

Since the language is part of a conworld; the word eel is considered borrowed as there are no eels on the planet Teramet. There may be eel like creatures, but eels are translated as...
bijile - Which means "lifeform pronounced as /ile/" eel

If you want to know where the /d͡ʒ/ [j] phoneme went too; it was made silent. That is the grapheme globally attributed to be dropable. How do you know when to make it silent? You don't, you are expected to know for borrowed words.
Native words that start with the [j] phoneme are ALWAYS silent.

You drank my beer.
