soft is poum (revisited)

poum = soft (Lhaesine pronunciation = POOM) (adjective) (some things Google found for "poum": an uncommon term: POUM (Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista) was The Workers' Party of Marxist Unification, a Spanish Trotskyite political party around the time of the Spanish Civil War; user name; Poum Tchack is a gipsy swing band from Marseille; According to the POUM "Prospect Of Upward Mobility" hypothesis individuals who are currently poor may oppose income redistribution because they hope to become rich in the future; Portrait of Mlle. Poum Rachou is an art deco painting by Tamara De Lempicka; places in New Caledonia, Chad, and Macedonia)

This modification is due to my U-related vowel sound change. To retain the same pronunciation, I needed to change the spelling of this Lhaesine word from "pume" to "poum".

This word has been revised. The Lhaesine word for "soft" is now "pon". This posting is no longer current.
