Several recent works have claimed that the Weak Gravity Conjecture (WGC) excludes super-Planckian displacements of axion fields, and hence large-field axion inflation, in the absence of monodromy. We argue that in theories with N≫1 axions, super-Planckian axion diameters D are readily allowed by the WGC. We clarify the nontrivial relationship between the kinetic matrix K --- unambiguously defined by its form in a Minkowski-reduced basis --- and the diameter of the axion fundamental domain,doi:10.1007/jhep01(2016)091 fatcat:gsf5drwbczexdifjvozioellsu
